Why is my casing being a bitch??
    #1249293 - 01/26/03 03:08 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)


I have a lipa yai casing that has one half-grown mushroom on it (about 2 inches tall), but NO other pins! The humidity is high, fanning is 4x per day and it gets about 12 hours of indirect light. The only thing I can think of is that I put it in the terrarium prematurely...the surface was probably 10-15% colonized. What should I do now? Will it just take longer to pin?

I just harvested a batch of thai lipa from a small casing. Waiting was a bitch! If you only let it go 10 or 15 percent into the casing, that is probably your problem. Did you use a bottom layer? If so, what did you use?

The casing is straight verm, and there is a 1 inch bottom layer.

I was told by some people here that it was OK to put my casing in the terrarium "as soon as mycelium was visible"

Did you use verm as a bottom layer as well as for the casing?


I kept my casing incubated until the myc. was coming through evenly throughout the casing. I got a pretty good harvest. Maybe if you wait a little longer ? How long has it been since you cased?

pick all the shrooms and pins off it. cover it with clingfilm. put it back in a dark place a bit warmer.


this is my friend eric, enjoying a contemplative moment. eric thinks you have to re-vegetate it (re-colonise it) [make it 'eat' again, to quote teodude] to increase the surface colonisation to 60%-ish :tongue:

just a thought :grin:

I have removed it from the terrarium, put saran wrap on it, poked a couple holes in and placed it back in my closet.

Tell Eric thank you :smile:

I'm currently holding the first mushroom I've ever grown.  It's about 1.5 inches tall, with a very thick stem.  It's also has some blue areas to it (I guess this is normal?).  I can't begin to describe the feeling of accomplishment I'm experiencing right now :smile:

I ate the mushroom.  Although it wasn't big, I got a NICE body buzz off it that lasted over an hour.  What a sense of accomplishment...literally eating the "fruits of my labours" :smile:
