misting casings
    #1089150 - 11/26/02 11:59 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

i'm just about ready to pick the first flush off my casing. it was a good flush.. but not a great flush. i was wondering how heavily i can mist it, after picking the shrooms and patching the casing. i just want the second flush to be bigger than the first one.

the casing is a loaf pan 9" long, 5" wide and 2 1/2" tall. the casing layer is vermiculite. can someone give me an idea how much water my casing might be able to absorb without over saturating it? i was also considering just dunking the whole thing for 12 hrs, but that sounds too risky. the casing might break apart or get contaminated. any suggestions are welcome regarding this.

You want to scrape off the old casing, check for aborts and contam, then recase with freshly sterilized casing material, don't just mist the old casing material.

Is your casing drying out?

Hmm, interesting - so can I just scrape and recase if I make a casing cock-up?

I put my first casing into a terrarium that was too humid, with the result that droplets formed on the mycelium that had been looking nice and cottony, and the whole thing stalled. I won't make the same mistake again, but I needed to learn the hard way.

Should I watch and wait, scrape and recase, or dump and cry (it was a 2-caker, the most aggressive 2 jars of the batch)?

Anyone got any good mushroom jokes?

i have no idea why you would go through the trouble of de-casing, re-casing and/or dunking. just patch the casing with sterile verm and mist so that it's not dry. i use the same casing from start to finish (now going on 2 months) and have great results. messing with all that extra stuff will likely slow your flushes and/or damage the mycelium and/or invite contamination. this has been my experience and is my opinion.

I agree with you...  A friend is on his 6th flush of Argentinas..  He has done nouthing other then harvest, patch, and mist.
