Does the casing need spraying?
    #1576119 - 05/25/03 12:15 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I actually had a couple things I would like to get your oppinions on, if I had a terrarium that was at 78F. and 85 RM #1. would the humidity be optimum for casing, I heard it was slightly lower than for cakes,#2. If I'm using a humidifier will I need to hand spray, I would think that I wouldn't have to but all the tek's say hand spray, are they just not taking into account that a person may have other humidification techniques.

All these statements and chracters in this message were not pertaning to myself, i do not nor condone any illegal avtivity. any questions posted by user: slcdeep are for research porpuses only.

My friend hasn't a clue what "85 RM #1" means but yes, lightly misting (not spraying) a casing layer will maximize production.

My friend mists his newly applied casing layers 4-6 times daily uintil pins appear and then he cuts back to once or twice daily. Be careful not to saturate the casing. The goal is to have it moist, not sopping wet.

BTW, my friend also uses perlite and a humidifier for air exchange.

I think he meant 85 RH, and the #1 was labeling his first question.

Yea I did mean RH sorry bout that I got my tarrarium to settle at the level I needed it. So should I spray as well as humidify or what, and what's the optimum humidity level for casings?

What if the mycelium is just growing from the sides and not in the middle any where just next to the wall of the container that I'm using to case. will they still grow or what?

Either your casing layer is of an uneven depth or it is drying out in spots.
