whats wrong with my casing
    #1615791 - 06/07/03 12:19 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I have a question. I made a casing with 3 half pint jars of colonized wbs,vermiculite, and Daddy Pete's plant pleaser.The bottom layer is vermiculite, and the top layer is the plant pleaser. After I cased, I put it back in the incubator for 2 days to recover then cold shocked and put into the fruiting chamber. After about 2 weeks in the fruiting chamber there are still no pins. The mycelium has completly grown through the casing and looks very rizemorphic. What the hell can I do to get this damn thing to fruit already? Am I risking overlay? Please help me!

What is a "Daddy Pete's plant pleaser"?

It sounds like you may have overlay already. You can deep scratch. You can cold shock. you can lower the temperature. You can give it more light. Otherwise, there isn't much you can do. Talk to them, try to convince them its time to fruit.

My guess is that you had to high of an RH along with temp problems, you have encountered overlay..

you may be able to use some kind of straw tek to get your casings.

Yeap, I gots the issues with temperature myself - great thing about cubies is that even with "overlay", my casings fruit anyway - but meagerly. My RH isn't exactly fucked, per say, but is probably too high also - I want one of those Parallel Port controllers with temp/humidity probes! And an inline air conditioner! And a pony!

Daddy Pete's Plant Pleaser is the localy produced potting mix. All the rednecks around here swear by it. It consist of 70-85% vermiculite and peat moss mixed with aged, mulched pine bark and compost. My humidity is close to 100% all the time because I have 3 fruiting cakes in my tererrium. My temp. is usually anywhere from 70 to 76 degrees, but sometimes it gets up to about 82 max. Ohh Pavement, I do talk to them. I also play them some guitar everyday too! Does anyone know if I can just recase with straight vermiculite, cold shock, then try to fruit again? Or can I place them in a seperate rubbermaid with no extra humidification and try to set it closer to the ac? Thanks for the help!

I just checked out my casing and holy shit! There are more little pins than I can count! These things just popped up out of the blue. I thought this casing was fucked. I'm about to have as assload of delicious gulf coast shroomies! I'll post the dry weight of the first flush in 6 or 7 days. Thanks for all the replies though.
