lucky,or is casing this easy????
    #1090802 - 11/27/02 12:54 PM (14 years, 9 days ago)

while i was focusing on my cakes harvest, i forgot about the casing,, i steralized everything well,and all the soil/manour was pasterized in the nuker,but i just got African Violet soil mix(contains peet moss,verm,and lime for ph,,perfect mix in a bag ready to go) put it in a container,,spread greated cake on and put like a inch layer of soil on top, covered with tin foil with 4 holes in the lid to keep light and the oxygen exchange down,,,week later it was fully colonized,,then i slapped some manour compost mix on top,,the manour was left alittle wetter than recommended,because i dont even have a spray bottle,,and 5 days later,,it was colonized,,,i just exchanged the foil for plastic wrap,,with holes in it for oxygen,,and let it go,,i realy didnt do anything else,,the RH was at like 56% in my box,,prolly more under the plastic wrapp but not much more,,i wasnt expecting shit yet because i'm waiting to get a fruiting chamber big enough to fit the casing,,,,and today i look and damn theres pinns covering almost the whole serface,,,shit is it realy this easy or did i just get lucky,,,maybe the secrate to casing is keep it clean,,and leave it the fuck alone...?.?.?.

no contams,as of yet,,and theres shit loads of pins,and 1/2inch mushies,,i used a clear container with foil on the sides to block out the light,,but i guess some leaked though or this bitch just likes to shit out shrooms,cause there is some shrooms on the sides,but there all growing up and out so theres no complaints here,,i mean shit i wasnt even ready for this bitch yet,,my chamber its even big enough,but i guess the humitity that the casing produces under the plastic wrap,and the temp at 80deg is good enough for now,,,and next time its just poo of me,,cause compared to the soil mix,,it colonized quicker and is dence with myc growth....

and a question,,i used one pf style 1/2 pt cake for this 6'by 12" casing,,,why do people use like 3 cakes per casing,,it it quicker??? seems like overkill to me

The bigger the mycelium network, the more fruits.

Its cool that you haven't gotten contams yet, but poo is not a great casing material, in fact it is exactly what a casing layer shouldn't be since it is nutritious. Next time, spawn your poo with mycelium and then once that is colonized, case the whole thing. Good Luck.

Well you get you poo and mix in pieces of mycelium (from a cake or grain, if using a cake, I grate up the cake with a cheese grater). Once the poo is completely colonized, you then case. My favorite is 50/50+.
