HOW IMPORTANT IS A DRIP SHIELD WHEN CASING?
    #1187810 - 01/03/03 02:26 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Ok I've been using a drip shield for a while now , and I keep seeing pictures of other people growing without them are they really that important or are they just nessisary with cakes? Last does a drip really stop a mushy from growing the spot that it lands?

as a rule, drops of water fallin and landing on mushrooms are not a cool thing. it doesnt matter if its a fruitbody of a cake or a casing; its the fruitbody. as for the mycelium, it doesnt hurt if water drops fell on it, but if its happenin all the day, the mycelium is gonna be drawn

Never used one while casing. casings need a lower RH, so it's not always "raining" like when you grow off of cakes.

I never used a drip sheild when I was growing cakes.
What I did instead was shake the water drops off the cover each time I fanned the cakes... 3 times a day....so I really didn't need one.

At this point Im feeling like I should play things safe and keep the drip shield. However my terarium would be much stronger w/o one, the way have things set up i dont have to open it at all untill I harvest. Thanks alot for the extremely timely reply's

Depends alot on how you are humidifying. With perlite it isn't such a big deal as with hand msiting.
