"Light Misting"...yeah right!!

I had a couple of colonized straight verm casings that weren't doing much of anything for a few weeks. I had prepared them to a T...exactly like the instructions over at mycotopia...although I may have actually added a bit too much water. Anyway, I have a small terrarium so I had been giving them 3-4 sprays per day. Ideal sunlight, nearly ideal temps, and still nothing. So finally I said "screw it" and doused the casings. I'm talking 40+ sprays per day for 3 days. Lo and behold...pins everywhere!!! Even when the actual mushrooms were growing I sprayed them a lot...20 times per day at least. Now I have a nice harvest of fat mushrooms. Has anyone else had success soaking their casings? I'm not talking about puddle formation, but enough to get them really wet. I thought about it and realized mushrooms can grow very well in rainy places...the pacific northwest and Hawaii for example. Maybe a lot of water isn't so bad after all?

Exactly< i fill mine up like a swamp between flushes then tilt it and let all the extra water drip out and 2 days later they come on strong. But that extra water makes it easier for contams to get in so once you find a feel for the right moisture without contams stick to it.

I wouldnt mind hearing what people have to comment about this. I am still very unsure about how much water casings are supposed to have, some say alot, some say hardly any. im still experimenting to try and found out what works best

Word. I used this technique:


I used this tek for one of my cake/casing and it turned out fine. It seems that you can water shrooms, the only problem people have with it seems to be that their casings don't have enough drainage, so cakes will end up drowning or contaminating in standing water.
