Need help with casing
    #1036449 - 11/08/02 03:39 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

hey, ive got 1 pint jars worth of brf/verm in a Ecuador casing.The substrate layer is aboutone and a half inches thick and the casing layer is one inch. Right after i made thecasing it was put in my incubator at 75-80 degrees and have misted it when it looked dry.It's been 6 days since i placed it in the incubator and there are no signs of growth yet..is there anything that im doing wrong or do you think itwill take a couple more days to show growth?...any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

sounds like your casing layer is too thick. i made the same mistake the first time. then i read this and made the next one much thinner with great results: http://shroomery.org/faq/faq.php?display=faq&nr=54&catnr=4&prog=1&lang=en

p.s. also raise incubation temps if you can.

I had a casing layer that was really thick, but I sterilized spoon and scooped up the casing and reduced the thickness by half, and then growth exploded
