Recase the Case?
    #1019000 - 11/03/02 04:26 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

After your casing tray is spent, do you need to recase with vermiculate then cover and put abck into the incubation chamber?

If your casing is spent, re casing will do nothing, since a casing is supposed to be non nutritious.

I've always wondered about this....if casing is non-nutritious, how come I'm getting a ton more mushrooms off my casing than my plain cake?

A casing produces more fruits because it has more surface area than a cake, this allows the mycelium to absorb more water.

ok, got one last question, if it's non-nutritious, then the energy the mycelium takes to spread comes straight from the substrate. So wouldn't a cake have more energy then a casing because it didn't have to grow anymore?

Your yield is actually determined by the amount of nutritious substrate available, and optimal growing conditions. Casings usually produce more than cakes because they create more optimal growing conditions, and initial flushes are larger and more prolific. Cakes usually don't produce as much as their full potential based on the amount of substrate as casings because the flushes are smaller thus giving more time for other factors such as contams and such to get a hold before they produce their potential, therefore having lower yields. Hope this makes sense.
