Casing Pinning Q?
    #1211948 - 01/12/03 02:26 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have tufts of mycelium popping up all over through the casing layer (coir/verm). This is my first casing, so I have a few questions.

1. I put it in a fruiting chamber, a small rubbermaid. Should I add any other modes of humidity, or will the casing provide for itself?

2. How long is it usual before it starts pinning?

Thanks for the help!

~Peace

Hi Redstorm...I'm almost in the exact same boat as you right now. I had a few small patches of mycelium peering through the verm (I did a straight verm casing), so I transferred it to the terrarium. I fan 3x a day, and give about 2 hours of light. I also added a small bowl of perlite with water added. It seems to be working, as I can already see small knots forming on the mycelium in certain areas. I don't have a means of measuring humidity, but when I remove the lid there is a small layer of water on the inside (no droplets...just a fine mist)

If you mist it a couple of times a day it should provide enough humidity. My casings usually begin pinning within a week of being put into the fruiting chamber.

I used to mist and use a air bubbler and got great results with casings.

Now I have a new set up with a cool mist.

There is moisture on the top and sides of the container. Not water drops, but a film that you can put your finger through and tell the difference. Does that sound like my humidity is ok?

yes your humidity should be fine but you could raise it just a little bit.

The key to letting the mycelium know it's time is the evaporation.
You can have aid with perlite also, just fan more often.
You don't want the casing layer to evap. to fast. Nor do you want it to evap. to slow. All should be on a gradual basis, with the casing layer pretty close to 90% of it's compacity, just as the knots are forming.
Sounds like you'll be fine.
