it isn't needed but helps keep the casing hydrated.

Some last minute advice:
-Keep it dark, warm, and air-tight (almost) until the surface is colonized. Even pinsets are the way to go.

-You did adjust for pH, right? A pH of 10 or so will make the surface almost contam-proof. If you didn't, no biggie :smile:

-When it starts to fruit, harvest before the veil breaks :smile:

Good luck and enjoy!

Well, shirl, since you know your shit, I'm sure you also know that H2O2 and bleach are both very basic. Also, when spawning, many suggest doing this:

Quote:

This will give the water a ph of 12-13 before the straw is added. This radical swing in ph, along with the heat will render the contaminants inactive for a couple of weeks.

That'll make it almost mushroom-proof too. A pH of 7.5 is closer to the mark. With coir, you can even get away without adjusting the pH at all.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Hydromion concentration. The higher the number, the less acidic; pH of 1 = very acidic (stomach acid) - pH of 14 = very basic (soda lake, perhaps).

While I'm in here I have a question... With casing can you get several flushes like with cakes or do you only get one? If you only get one, then wouldnt cakes have more results?

As many as five or more if the substrate is deep enough and you keep the casing surface clean; if spores drop on the casing surface you increase the risk of green forming. Trich is nasty, and will decimate your casing.
