Casing Question
    #1397192 - 03/21/03 05:56 AM (14 years, 12 days ago)

so this lady my mom works with's son emailed me and wanted me to ask this. i'll copy and paste:
-----------
"i cased 50/50 peat/verm. i used clear tupperware instead of black. the only light is from directly about the casing, 4 hours on, 20 hours off. i noticed that a few of the casing have mushrooms growing across the bottom of the casing. so my question is, should i dig down through and pick them, or will they eventually poke through the top? it doesnt look like they are going to poke through the top...once they mature "under ground" will they be a cause of contam? i can get pictures if needed"
------------

If they aren't removed I'm guessing they will eventually just rot away....

The entire casing, especially if it has pulled away from the sides, should be loose enough in the Tupperware to sort of lift it up so that those shrooms can be picked. The network should hold together well enough at this stage.

he needs to flip the casing over and pick them. If left they will rot and contam the casing.

what causes this? is it just a natural occurence or did my friend do something wrong? he believes he is going to pick them later tonight

What causes this...you ask???

If you do not paint the sides black then you will have shrooms popping out from all ends! You need to make sure the only art of the casing that gets light is the top. That is where you want all the fruits to come from. It's just easier. Peace

A piece of advice before we part:
Don't knock of Death's door. Instead ring Deaths doorbell and run away, Death really hates that!
