Quick Casing Question
    #1198120 - 01/07/03 03:33 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)


This is to be my first time growing. I have four colonized Lipa Yai cakes, and I just cased them using the straight vermiculite method. My question is this...my cakes colonized VERY aggresively, but left the top layer of vermiculite completely untouched. How is the crumbled mycelium supposed to penetrate the casing layer (since it's straight vermiculite).

Also, I have a couple pieces of mycelium visible in my casing (the verm on top shifted and settled somewhat when I moved it). Is this OK? I just wrapped it up in saran wrap and don't want to open it up and add more verm unless it's absolutely nessecary.

Thanks
Viking

I don't mean to sound short but I'm in a little rush.

1. Your mycelium isn't suppose to penetrate through the casing layer :smile:  It will to a degree, but if it does too much then you may experience overlay (do a search for "overlay" and you'll easily know what I mean.

2. The verm that shifted when you moved it, just place some fresh verm over the colonized piece of cake that you can see.  Sometimes your mycelium will go nuts when its birthed :smile:  All that fresh air and new water...YUM!  This is common, just place some more verm over the area.

3. Good Luck  :smile:

Thanks for the responses everyone.

Lana, if the mycelium just pokes through at certain spots, when do I know it's time to move the whole casing tray into my terrarium?

I hope this works :-). Most people I've talked to think a 4 cake casing is too much for a first time grower...I hope to prove them wrong.
