Still hope for this casing?
    #1637525 - 06/16/03 03:43 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I had a casing that was doing perfect and had strands poking through all over. Then after i had about three mushies picked it had water spilled on it. It was the sterile water i use anyway, but the soil has been wet for three days, not puddles or anything but saturated. Plus the soil is that Moisture control stuff from miracle grow so it stays wet. All the pins have halted and havent gotten any larger. Should i cold shock it or air it out more often? Any help appreciated.

well, you could just scrape off the casing layer, recase it and put it back into the incubator til it's ready to fruit again. Dunking the casing before recasing it might help too. How many flushes have you had from it so far?

Love & Light,

Boppity

I'd agree with that.

I think Boppity604's solution is the safest. If you're unwilling to recase, you could try bringing the RH way down, so the casing layer dries out a bit. When it's sufficiently dry, you could bring the RH up to normal level again.

It is on its first flush, picked two mushies so far but now growth stopped. How do you dunk a casing? By crumbling up the myc. again and putting it in a jar of water? I thought dunking was Pfjars only? I've had it in open air for a day now to dry it out a bit. So how can i dunk it?

I have read that a casing can be dunked by placing it in a large enough container and cover w/ h2o for 8-12 hrs.
