2 questions regarding casing
    #1421606 - 04/01/03 05:07 PM (14 years, 26 days ago)

Ok, my friend is new to the whole growing/casing process so he has asked me to ask all of you 2 basic questions I am sure everyone knows and I just can't seem to find anywhere. Anyways, here is the start. First off, what would a person do if his mycelium growth has seemed to stop and jars are not 100 percent fully colonized. Would it be ok to cut out the pieces not colonized, or should he just wait longer?

Now for the second question. Does anyone have a clue how much surface area for casing is required for 1/2 pint jars. My friend does not want to put to many or not enough colonized substrate into one place, and is looking for the right amount and area space. Thanks you all for your help.

assuming your freinds jars are colonising top to bottom and the bottom is the uncolonised part just flip them upside down and wait a bit....otherwise you can have success with just cutting out the uncolonized part.

as far as casing all you need to do is make a layer of colonized cake and a layer of casing stuff.  nice and even :smile:

does person just add the bottom layer, then colonized substrate, then top layer, or must he also add a a substance in order to colonize on once again, ie making the same substance used inside the jars. That part was a bit fuzzy to him. Thank you very very much. Your the best.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S.
