slow casing colonization
    #1138481 - 12/13/02 12:34 PM (14 years, 1 day ago)

i'm new at this...
I've recently cased 3.5 pints of colonized brf cakes, broken up, in a 50/50+ casing. It seems to be slowly colonizing, very very slowly. Its been 9 or 10 days and there are only 1 or 2 barely visible white fuzzy spots poking out from small cracks. it is a tazmanian cubensis so its supposed to clonize rather quickly. am i just being impatient? also, ive read that casings can be fruited without being fully colonized or even colonized at all, as long as the substrate has had 2 or 3 days to re-establish itself. is that true?

What did you use to case it? How deep was the substrate layer? How deep was the casing layer?

um, the casing layer is about 3/4 " thick 50% peat moss and 50% vermiculite. It also has some oyster shells added as well as a little bit of calcium carbonate to stabilize the ph around 7.5.

50/50 as your bulk substrate?
or 3.5 pint cakes crumbled 3" deep and cased with 50/50?

"50/50 as your bulk substrate?

********************************************
whats the temperature they are incubating at?.

check how wet the casing layer is.......ive found that when using peat, the substrate heats up and moisture rises to the top of your tub then drips back onto the peat making it very soggy....this could be your problem
