how are my casings doing?
    #11278324 - 10/19/09 06:03 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

hi
this is my first time making casings and in general i think its going pretty well. that is apart from a couple of questions/concerns that i have..

ok so.


i colonized my jars of rye and once fully colonized i cased with a mixture of peat moss and verm (50/50) i also added a little crushed oyster shell which i read somewhere balances the ph.

so half casing mix on the bottom, half on the top in  8 inch foil pie dishes.

back to the incubator.

after 5 days this is what i have

http://http://http://

so it was into the fc as it says on magash's tek that to put them in when myc pokes through casing layer

its been another 4 days and there's no change

the first casing i dropped by accident

the same case i saw a bit of green on it so i took out a scoop with a sterile spoon but it doesn't look very dense.
i have only done cake before so im only comparing to the bright white im used to seeing in cakes, also cakes are very dense. these are not.

this is what it looks like where i took a scoop out

http://

the cakes have been in a martha style fc which is about 80rh and 65-70f but i did just put some heat lamps in there to warm it up a bit and the rh went down to 50!!
(i only have a cool mist humidifier running on high 24/7 which made the room cooler. that was why i wanted a heat lamp)

http://


*so im asking if my casings look ok
*if i put them in an inadequate fc with too variable conditions
*why can i see nothing new happening with the casings since being put in fc
* can i keep a heat lamp going in there 24/7. its a red bulb on the bottom and blue on top. these bulbs were for lizards and my friend told me that they dont interfere with his animals being on all the time so they probably dont effect the mushrooms.. is this wrong? i think they need total darkness for a time

thank you

lets have some fun guy

ok so ive taken my casings out of the martha and put them into a shotgun terrainium. 82%rh and 70f

i also put a 50 50 mix of peroxide 3% and water onto a cobweby likeness on one of the new casings and sprayed the shit out of the others with water

red heat lamp is on 19 hrs a day and cool mist humidifier is on 24/7 medium setting

this is all going on in a large closet type spsce

so hopefully i will see something on my casings after 5 or so days!!

he scooped out the green but if you saw green it is still there and WILL come back to hount you. i would go ahead and take out and isolate or throw out. and they take time to pin 3-14 days usually.
