First time casing problem
    #1323582 - 02/21/03 02:40 AM (14 years, 3 days ago)

I did casing for the first time, using the 50/50 mix everything seemed OK, I started to see the mycelium on the side of the container but it never got through the casing layer. I started to get shrooms but only on the side of the container not on the casing itself which also seems to dry out very qucikly. I am triing to keep the temp & humidity constant but I am not always there to take care of it so it is in the range of 70 to 8o degrees and the RH is always at 99%. Is that the problem? Please help me those poor suckers are so quite when they grow, I want more...

what kind of container are you using? what is the strain? if the mycelium is appear on the sides, then maybe you should consider wrapping aluminum foil around its sides. did you put a bottom layer?

It's a butter container and it's not transparent. I used a bottom layer of moist verm, crumpled two cakes of brown rice flour and verm on top and added an 1 to 1 1/2 inch of casing on top of all that. The strain is Mazatapec.

I've never done a casing.. but it seems if you can *see* mushrooms on the side.. that light can easily get through the side.. causing it to pin the wrong spots..

Your casing is drying out....

all the moisture is on the edges, so that's where they are growing...

mist the sides of the container to get water into the bottom verm layer and it should help with the next flush!!

hope that helps!!

You might have made your casing layer too thick as well.

Yes. 1 - 1.5 inches is too thick. Next time use .25 - .5 inch thick casing layer.

Just mist ur casings with H2O2/water compound.

Good luck!

Damn bro you got way too much casing on that top layer. You trying to kill them fellas. My friends grandfathers ferret told me that a 1/4 to a 1/3 of an inch is plenty. I dont speak very good ferret but I think thats what he said. Your better of on the low side 1/4 inch.
