reverting the casing
    #1618254 - 06/08/03 01:48 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Joe Noob, who is doing his first casing, seeks advice. He's pretty sure that he prematurely transferred a casing from incubation to the fruiting chamber. The mycelium had only just begun to colonize the layer, but he thinks he should have patched and waited slightly longer.

Anyway, the casing has been sitting in the fruiting chamber for 4 days without visible activity, so he was considering putting it back into the incubator to revert to colonization. But he's concerned about the negative effects of switching back, since the temp drop, etc have already taken place.

Other than the predicted delay, is this procedure a bad idea? Perhaps he'd be better off just leaving the thing in the fruiting chamber now. He already has learned his lesson about being patient, but was wondering if there are opinions on which would likely go faster...

If it is poking through evenly in different spots all around the casing it's probably fine, but I'd need to see pics.

I fruit at 20% poking through at the most. 4 days is way too early to worry -- it could take a week to pin or sometimes longer.
