flip a casing?
    #1768846 - 08/01/03 11:49 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

i was looking at a casing today and an idea popped into my head... has anybody every tried turning their casing upside down after a couple of flushes and seeing if you could get another good fruit out of it?

i have thought of doing, but haven't tried it .
seems like it could be an alternative for deep scratching if you had overlay .
it could also be a contamination risk though .

What about injecting the casing with necessary nutrients through a syringe?

Like..........water? The casing will eventuall deplete no matter what you do. If you have overlay, it is a good idea to flip it over if you don't what to deep scratch. It wont be more of a contamination risk. By either dunking or injecting water will provide it with some water to produce more mushy, but after an extent, the myc dies.

I just had two casings with overlay that I cold shocked, flipped and patch cased with dry verm with great success...pinned in 4 days - single cake verm/coir casings 136 grams wet. the other thing i notice alot is that if i use clear casing containers alot of times pins form at the bottom... i also have flipped when that happens with no problems

i wanted to flip a casing that had bad overlay on it, so i could case the other side. i couldn't find an appropriate container to flip it into though.

Success has been had with flipping for contam issues.
Fill the bottom of your casing enclosure with salt, h2O2and H2O.
Flip and re incubate. This has worked in the past.

  That's what i do with my casings after 3-4 flushes too. Crumble the casing with pre-sterilized gloves or just flip it upside down, then patch it with a nutrient layer and incubate!.... Case with non-nutrient, coldshock if needed and place in fruiting chamber after heavy misting. Also injecting sterile, cold water into the casing works fine for re-hydration. It works just as new!... :smile:

Wow, good info, I'll have to try this after the first few flushes when things slow.

FOAF did that before with just H202 because of some greenish shit. Thanks for the tip on salt too, good idea.
