casing question
    #1621579 - 06/09/03 07:37 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

should casings be put in the terarrium after you birth the cakes or should they be put back in the incubator to colonize the casing layer?

Incubate until you see the mycellium poking through the casing layer. Mine come out in long, white rhizomorphic strands.

Is an incubator supposed to be dark?

My jars sit in a transparent incubator and get daylight - they do very well - When I case the popcorn the Mycelium continues to grow quite wildly breaking through to the surface rather quickly, but then taking forever to pin. one of the conditions for pinning is light

the question is - am I supposed to keep the culture in the dark even after casing it until it is time to fruit?

Keep the casing under tin foil for a few days in a dark, warm place. I like to mist it lightly the second day, and then patch it the third or fourth day. The sides of the pan should be opaque (sp?) and the tin foil should keep light out of the top. A day or so after patching you should be able to see nickels sized spots of mycelium poking through the surface of the casing layer, now you throw it in the terrarium and start fruiting it.
