First flush... now what?
    #1672049 - 06/29/03 08:51 PM (14 years, 29 days ago)

This is the first flush from a first casing. It was Thailand Koh-Samui in a plain vermiculite casing because nothing else was available at the time. It's not great but it's decent.


Anyway, the questions are: what should be done now? should the casing layer be patched up a little? should fruiting be induced again right away? any other comments or suggestions are welcome as well.

Remove all aborts. If new pins have formed you should let them grow. If your casing layer is battered from removing shrooms (holes, pulling away from sides) then you should apply casing material to these spots. You can also dunk the casing to provide extra moisture, but you dont want to leave any excess. Incubate or throw it right back in fruiting conditions. It really doesnt matter. I usually incubate my casing if it is in need of repair, and to help it recover. This usually only lasts from 1-3 days.

Sounds like you have the right idea - clean up all the abborts and make sure you get everything harvested, take some fresh casing (sterile) material and fill in the holes, mist the casing, put back in your fruiting environment, wait for flush number two.

Be nice and sterile, my friend has had trouble before with introducing contam during harvest and has missed aborts before and they rotted.  If you have a glove box, use it, if you don't have one, it's a recommendation.

damn ATWAR for typing faster than me :tongue:

oh you should prob harvest sooner next time, those guys seem a little mature.

So how DO you dunk a casing? Cakes I can see. But a casing?

I've never done it yet myself but I assume, the same way... A casing gets pretty solid so you can carefully take it out of its container if you need to. I'm sure you can fill the container its in with water and then drain it. Though, I would also like a reply from someone with experience  :smile:

I'm not sure about dunking either. I wouldn't worry about doing that. I agree with Kukusz. Mist it a bunch after you re-case it and keep misting it once or twice a day until you see new pins. This will give it plenty of moisture without worrying about the dunking. My poodle usually gets 3-4 good flushes this way. Also mixing a bit of h202 with your h20 when you mist will help with contamination.

Relatively, it's actually not that much... there are some people posting pics of these perfectly even flushes of these huge shrooms... check out the grow logs. I'm still proud though :smile:

for casing after they have flushed i like to take 12cc syringes and make multiple water injections into the substrate h2o2 diluted works great depending on your casing size for a 12" x 6" casing i would inject 24cc or more depending on the flush but this works great ......
