Another Casing Question!
    #1470991 - 04/18/03 06:40 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Ok im gonna take the risk and finally try casing my cakes. One thing that i was confused about was the Humidity of the Fruiting Chamber. Does the Casing layer provide enough humidity for the chamber or do external methods of Humidifying need to be used (Perlite, Ultra Sonic, Spraying etc...) Basically just wondering if i can drop the trey into a larger sealed container and watch everything blast off or if i need to add some sort of Humidification.

You want to add other humidification. I'd recommend layering the container with perlite (3 inches should do it) and soaking with a 1:10 h2o2/h2o mixture.

Every time I've cased, the casing layer provided enough moisture to start pinning. You just have to make sure the layer is moist enough.

My opinion is that if the casing layer has the right amount of water absorbed in it then it should take off. But to be safe i always throw some perlite underneathe my pans and add water.

Aprox. 85% humidity. Just spray with a mister. You should crack the lid of the terarium a bit.
