Dried up Casings Need Water but HOW?!
    #1483162 - 04/22/03 06:44 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I went away for 3 days and came back to my casings. They are in desperate need of a drink of water because of my lack of misting. They all have very small pins and a few small-medium shrooms growing. The casings are going through their 2nd flush right now. Should I mist? I heard mist will kill the pins. If I don't mist, how can I get them some water?

thanks

mist it till it's damp, after that keep the sides misted of the terrarium often. You could also pick off the pins, recase it, and you wont end up exhausting nutes on a weak flush, with not enough moisture. You could also just go cake style, and kick the humidity in your terrarium up to 99%, and just let it fruit. The raised humidity will make the difference. And shouldn't be over humid if your casing layer is dry.

you can also take some sterile water in a syringe and inject the cakes.

You, after misting, could use perlite to keep the moisture. Have your casing in one container and in a larger fruiting container use the perlite. Fill the bottom about 1" w/ perlite and then pour 1/2" of h20 and a little H2O2. Place your casing container directly on the perlite and cover both with a transparent lid.
