Pinning stage through harvest
    #1390018 - 03/19/03 05:24 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Theoretically, I have just cased my mushrooms a few days ago, large clouds of white were visible (probably 40% covering), some brown fuzzies are on the surface as well. The humidity, hypothetically, is so high in my aquarium that the water drips back down onto the casing soil / mycelia. The average hypothetical temperature is around 90 degrees. How frequently should I vent the tanks, what type of temp do I need (some people say lower the temps, other say not too) and are those brown fuzzies infections (i'd say that honestly they look kind of infectionesque) and will they really matter? Does anyone have any suggestions for the next few days? Also, the casing material that I used had a 'nutrient water' solution added. I boiled 2 bags of brown rice in 2 gallons of water for a few hours, strained the liquid and mixed that with the casing layer, then put that in a cake pan, covered with alum foil and baked at 250 for 2 hours. SO, my questions again 1) Does the water dripping down (total fall, about 12 inches) damage the mycelia / pins (that have yet to form)? 2) Does the addidtion of the rice water cause faster growth? 3) Will those brown fuzzies develope into problems and 4) Realistically, how low should I put the temp? The mycelia grew up fine in the 90 degree range, Will changing the temp's (lets say a range of 65-85, changing whenever I air exchange) damage the to-be shrooms? Thanks for the input!

The point of a casing is really to keep out contams and using nutrient water for your casing was a mistake this will bring on contams. anyway patch the spots that are poking through and then when its all even and about 50% colinized induce fruiting

For now I'd say I have, er... I'm imagining that I have about 30% of the top layer covered with big juicy moist cloudes of mycelia, I have loweed the temp(theoretically) some from 90 to the mid to high 70's. I also have, again hypothetically, the brown fuzz still growing. What I was wondering, should I spray with a diluted h2o2 solution? If so, what ratio shouldI use? Should I continue fruiting?

My friend would carefully cut out the contamination if it is not too extensive, and then mist the entire casing frequently with a solution of h2o/h2o2.

Next time leave out the nutritive solution. A casing layer is by definition non-nutritive. Good luck.

Another dream I had last night. .. Four total cased containers, one around 70% coverage, the others around 40, one around 20%. All covered with the brown fuzzyness (except where the mycelia is, thats very bulbous and cloudy). On the one with 20% growth (mycelial) I dreamed up a spatula and scooped out all of the brown fuzziness on one of them ,gonna see what it looks like tomorrow and I might do it to all of them. Also, after I scrape the nasty's from them,I'm going to spray with a 1:10 h2o2/h2o mixture to make sure I kill whatever is left (that isn't mcelia). I've already got a 12 hour cycle of light, and the tempwent from 90's to 70's. One concern I have, the dream person is using an aquarium filled with about 3 inches of perlite soaked with water with 2 heating pads underneath. This works EXCELLENT, keeping a "99% humidity". The only negative aspect is that, whenever the otp is moved, all of the condensed droplets crash back down onti the casing / mycelia. Any suggestions? Thanks!
