To cover casings immedialty after or to put into terranium??
    #1771011 - 08/01/03 10:19 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

A friend has some spawn colonizing some jars and will be ready to case any time now.

He has a question regarding what to do with his casings after he has finished making them...

Ryche Hawk of TheHawksEye states that he places his casings directly into a humidified terranium immediately after finishing his casings, but then my buddy has also heard that you need to cover the casing trays with tin foil to get a build up of Co2, then when the co2 levels drop when you put into terrnium, this stimulates fruiting.


Can i get some different opinions on the problem above?

To cover or not to cover, that tis' thy question.

the mycelium has to recover and colonize,you need incubate it for 3-5 days sometimes longer with bigger casings.if you put it the fruiter you'll have to wait alot longer for it to colonize.stanard incubation temp will speed things up for you.86 degrees

should he poke holes in his tin foil cover?

also, if he uses jiffy mix as a casing layer, should he do anything with the PH as in add lime, etc.

as for steralzing the mix, will baking in tin foil @ 200degrees F for 1 hour do the trick?

"terranium"

anno is going to get you.


"if he uses jiffy mix as a casing layer, should he do anything with the PH as in add lime"

i don't know what the ph of jiffy mix is, but i used to use jiffy mix (without lime) and it worked. for best results, it would be a good idea to check the ph and adjust as neccessary.

haha,well jiffy mix has peat mixed in,can't be very much you shouldn't worry about it.has for the holes in the lid i've done it with and without i'm not sure which is better.i'd say with the holes in the lid i guess,doesn't matter to much.

o ya and 200 is to high,stay around 160-180 is good,you can do that a microwave if you want.havn't you read the FAQ's bro.all this stuff is there.
