possible overlay and some other stuff, please help
    #1467864 - 04/17/03 06:03 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

my doggie's cover on the top of his casings is plastic wrap and it looks VERY VERY WET, will water drops falling onto the casing make it too wet in there and cause overlay?  What would be a perfect place to store his casings til they are ready for pinning?  And all opnions on cold shocking amazonian are welcome; I know it's not really needed, but bad/good idea?  Specifics of the pros/cons.  How long?  Fridge too cold?  What about outside?  Highs have been around 70 lows have been 40-45 lately.  If the temp's warmer where they are placed his casings will colonize faster, correct?  Would it benefit him to incubate them @higher then room temp?  Many ?'s, probably very irritating, I'm sure.  Please, experienced mycologists help this dumb pooch, remember, he's only a dog.  And also, if not true indirect light in the terr, would indirect lamp light work 

thanks all, happy easter  :grin:

Incubate in the mid 80's with a complete absence of light.
Shock outside overnight or in the fridge around 12 hrs.

AS for the water drops, I had this too and it didn't really effect me adversely. Just make sure that the substance they are dripping from is clean. Maybe even coat with petrol jelly or Rain-X to prevent the water molecules from adhering? I solved my problem by making a "cathederal-style ceiling" in my terrarium wiht plexiglass available from Lowes. Just have it at a steep enough angle that the water drips down the plexiglass and back into, in my case, the perlite.

As I felt the soft cool mud squish between my toes, I thought, Man, these are not very good shoes!

the FAQ's will help you out a little there-try searching. and a direct 20w bulb works great on top of your terrarium-even with clear glass.

P.S.-outdoor and the fridge will work fine, as long as its colder than the temp you are incubating in (from 65-!85! works) as long as it doesnt freeze it'll do the trick.

I don't see any harm in a cold shock. 12 hours in the cooler should do it :smile:

Also, I wouldn't worry about the droplets unless, as someone above mentioned, the under-surface is dirty.

Foil, after being baked at 300 for and hour, would work fine for this; its keeps out light and keeps CO2 and moisture in. These are the conditions you want when incubating :smile:

Good luck!
