Misting Question
    #1060571 - 11/17/02 08:22 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

How much should I be misting these? How damp should the casing layer be when initiating pins? Should I stop misting once pins arrive? The terrarium is 75/95% currently.

The mycel on the top of the casings is looking a little strange after I mist them, and usually i'm taking pics right after misting. Makes it look not all fluffy white afterwards. The mycel seems to receed a bit into the casing layer after misting.

I think you are fine, I mist mine quite a bit each day so they look damp/wet, but not soaking. The mycelium will be fine, its just absorbing the water it needs probably...

Use a ratio of about 10:1 water/h2o2. That'll be good.

does misting increase the risk of contamination?
