first time casing
    #1352726 - 03/05/03 03:02 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

SWIM is planning on make his first casing on friday!!!!! hes so excited.  :grin: . he wants to go over his procedure with some other people before he buys all of his materials. he has two fully colonized 1 pint jars of birdseed. what he planns on doing is buying a bag a vermiculite, jiffy mix, a few tupperware containers, and a large rubber maid container. he get the vermiculite and jiffy mix to the proper saturation (when you squeeze a handfull, only a few drops of water comes out) and then place it in the microwave for 5-8 minutes. then, after spraying the room down with lysol, and after the vermiculite and jiffy mix cools off, he will then place about 1/3 of an inch of vermiculite on the bottom of the tupperware containers. then, with rubber gloves on, he will place about 2 inches of birdseed down. the top layer (jiffy mix) will be about 1/4 of the birdseed layer (1/2 inch). after covering the top of the tupperware container with saran wrap, he wil then place the casings back into a condition with no light and a temperature of about 78 for 2-3 days. during this time he will be constantly checking the casing for overly aggresive patches of mycelium and patching them up. after the 2-3 days is over he will then place them in a terrarium with the rh at around 100 percent and a 10 degree temperature drop to around 65-70 degrees. after he sees the mycelum start to pin, he will scoop out most of the perlite, and just leave a few jars containing perlite and h2o2 (to keep the humidity up around 70-90) in the terrarium (64 qt. rubbermaid container). he will mist once every day and fan 2-3 times.

does this sound like optimal growing parameters? any thing i should change? quick question- should i still patch the casing when its in the terrarium? and how many times should i patch? thanks    :grin: :smile: :grin: :smile: :grin: :smile: :grin: :smile: 

also, how many grams dry should i expect (from 2 pints of birdseed) if everything goes according to plan for SWIM?  :confused:

Well you have your plan down to the t! Excellent, it is good rule of thumb for your top casing layer to be 1/4 the size of the colonized substrate layer.
