Can I spawn a stalled casing into bulk?
    #11209923 - 10/08/09 08:29 PM (8 years, 11 days ago)

So I've been pondering my stalled cases for awhile and decided to break them out and into a large bowl.  To my suprise, I got a strong mushroom sent when they were broke open, and found my wbs to be fully preserved inside my casing (perhaps I put too thick of a casing layer and the mycelium was unable to penetrate).

I spawned the mixed up casing substrate into a bulk, and have them sitting in the dark where I will keep them there for about a week.

Is there any hope for shroomies to come from this?

Has anyone ever tried this?

Stalled 'cases'? How? Why? Cased with what? Spawned to what? In what kind of container? In what temps? Why a week?

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?

They were wbs cased w/ verm/peat.  They have been in my shotgun FC for almost 4 weeks now, and there has been absolutely no sign of any growth.  Temps range from anywhere from 70 to 80, noted all the cakes I've had are working on their second flush.  spawned Into a 6x10in plastic container that is appx 5inches tall.  Spawned into verm and coir.

Thanks for the questions, I hope this generates more responses.

Starting pH of the casing layer? If you checked?

So verm + peat + calcium solution? What kind of calcium?

I'm trying to figure out why they stalled. Did they colonize the casing layer at all?

Well I couldnt really figure out that either.  They did not colonize the casing layer all the way through.  I think I just put too much on top.

How much?

See, I'm leaning towards a bad pH in the casing. But there could also be a contam or other issue.
