Hand Misting?
    #1456563 - 04/14/03 09:17 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

When spraying by hand, do I spray directly onto the mushrooms or into the atmosphere around?
Also, if I spray onto the mushrooms, do I have to soak them?
If spraying into the atmosphere, how many sprays should I use and in what direction?
Thanks yet again in advance,
nirvana

depends on your setup,  like if you do that slanted glass thing you just spray and don't worry bout it.

but otherwise my freind has allways sprayed the substrate, trying to avoid the mushrooms (he says it can cause rot if they get sprayed to much).
a little mist or two in the air is good because it brings up the humidity and mushrooms DO get rained on in nature and they can take it :smile:

Depends how fine your "mist" is. If you have a good spray bottle then it's fine, but if there are sizable droplets that fall like rain then it's not good for the pins and stuff. My friend sprays 2-4 squirts, parallel to the ground, over his tub each time he fans and lets the mist "drift" down onto whatever is growing.

So as long as I'm spraying my 'cake' with 100% sterile water, I should be OK? Shuld I be drenching the cake or giving it a light soak?
Thanks,
Nirvana

You shouldn't directly spray cakes. Spray the terrarium. If it's a casing, you can mist the casing layer. NEVER soak whatever you are growing.... read my last post. If it needs rehydration, do a Dunk TEK.

for humidification, probably the simplest, cheapest, and most effective solution is perlite. read up on it and go get some.
