Holiday mycelia growth.
    #1132371 - 12/11/02 12:54 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I have two casings from which I picked the second flush today. The thing is that I have to visit my parents during the holidays, so I won't be home for about two weeks (hopefully the third flush will have come up by then; I expect it to be ready in some 8 or 9 days). My plan is to add an inch or so of soil mixed with a little vermiculite to the casings, wrap them up in plastic and put them somewhere dark in about 20-23 degrees celcius (68-73 farenheit) while I'm gone. What I'm hoping is that the lack of oxygen will make the mycelia grow instead of fruiting, so the casings will be ready to give new flushes by the time I come back.

Does this sound like a good idea or completely stupid? These are my first successful casings, so I'm a bit short on experience.

If you can, re-case with a thin casing layer like you said, but instead of putting them in 68-73, put them in temps a little higher, say 78-83, that way they will just incubate for the time you are gone.
