Question about casing.
    #1738135 - 07/22/03 02:09 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I'm trying casing for the first time and I have a question. I used 1 inch of verm then 2 crumbled up fully colinized brown rice flour and verm cakes that made about a 1 1/2 inch layer then I covered it with about 1/4 inch of verm. The casing has been in a warm dark place for about 10 days. I can see a few blotches of white in a few spots that are about the size of marbles. When should I put the casing under the light to be fruited? Does all of the vermiculite on the top have to turn white?

You should spot case that thing in order to get a more even distibution of mycelium coming up to the top. That way you will get a more even pinset.

patch case then induce pinning conditions. You don't want the surface to covered and/or colonized in mycelium, once you see the colonization occuring just below the surface of the casing then begin the fruiting cycle. Give plenty of light (12/12) and make sure the casing layer is moist but not matted down with water, allow a little bit of CO2 to build, then once you see hyphal knots begin fanning on a more regular basis.

O, what panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
