when using this tek how much water should I use for the daily misting?......should you only give it a few pumps or mist till the casing layer looks very wet? or something inbetween?

The casing should remain damp, but never drenched. My friend mists his casings LIGHTLY 4 - 6 times daily until pins make their appearance, and then 1 - 2 times daily thereafter.

Just a couple of pumps. Aim the mister over the casing, not directly at it. Allow the mist to settle as a light dew at sunrise.

Just do it when it's dry... spray over letting it settle (at least that's what dog told me when i asked this question :wink: ). Don't saturate it, and beware of misting with pins, it can cause pins to abort.

Ya, misting 4-6 times a day is fine but it could be an inconvience. Once a day or when it starts to look dry will work fine. Also, I mist my casing during all stages of mushroom growth. I think as long as there is good air exchange it shouldn't hurt. I exchange about 6 times a day.

good air exchange is key, just don't let the surface dry out. ( can be seen by the change of colour on the surface!)

after a harvest, you need to re-plenish the water that was removed.. since 90 % of fruits consists of water,,, you figure it out!!
