OMG all my casings died!
    #1700178 - 07/09/03 06:04 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

ok, now im really really pissed.....
3 out of 3 of my WBS casings are dead......
ive never lost all of my casings before!!!
they were even done in seprate batches!!!

i cleaned my tupperware as usual, put everything in my glovebox, dumped out a few quarts into the containers, put nuked casing layer over the top, covered with foil, and incubated.....

everything was fine untill pinning stage, they started producing pins, then stalled.... i waited a few days, then figured they were infected....

nothing was apparent from teh surface, so i took one outside, and filpped it.... sure enuff..... GREEN ALLL OVER the bottem....
tho the top was largely unaffected, a little crept up on the sides....

so heres my question, what could have caused infection to ALL my casings.... it looks like it started DEEP.....
all my casings were WBS, cased with coir/verm/oyster casings were all about 4-5 inchs deep....
pinning was started in a 99% humidity chamber (hommade pod)

i misted for a while, untill i realised that they dont need to be misted due to my hommade pod produceing SO much humidity

could THAT have been the problem?
there was tons and tons of humidity, so when i misted, nothing evaporrated, it just pooled at the bottem of the casing?
which created standing water, which created good environment for GREEN to take hold?

i did notice excess water at the bottem of the casings when i picked them apart outside....

so what do u guys think?
im devistated, ive never had such a failure before....

To high of humidity could have been some of the problem.

aww, you gotta pay a visit to your gnome before he comes back.
