Fruiting a casing without a fruiting chamber?
    #1315171 - 02/17/03 07:30 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

A friend of a friend has a casing that looks colonized enough to begin fruiting. His fruiting chamber is currently being used as a incubator so he was wondering if he could fruit it without a fruiting chamber just in his room? It is a small casing in a bread pan he put some clear plastic wrap over it and put it on top of his incubator. Will this be ok should he poke holes in the plastic wrap or would that expose it to contams. He plans to mist it once a day and fan it a few times. Also how do you know when a casing is fully colonized? His has strong white mycelium on the sides and a little bit of mycelium poking threw the center its been incubating since Thursday. -Thanks

I've done it by accident and it worked. But, the main reason you really want to avoid doing this is that you increase your risk of contams like 1000 fold, not to mention your casing will dry out faster.

Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!

How deep is the bread pan? How much clearing do you have between the casing layer and the rim of th pan? Is there enough room for pins to form. If there is enough room for pins to form you could just set something like a piece of glass on top of it. afoaf did it with a small casing and it worked perfectly! Just fan it out three times per day and keep it so you can see moisture on the glass and you should be fine. When pins form you could set the pan in a big mixing bowl and set the glass on it. That is what afoaf did and he got lots of mushrooms! :smile:

I see what everyone is saying. It is so hard to form an opinion when you see both sides so clearly!

it is like 5 inches deep he has a good 2 inches from casing layer to the top. Thanks for the idea I think he will use that and fan a few times a day.
