growing questions
    #1778107 - 08/04/03 02:05 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

ok. i have casings and it has been weeks. i see myc pokin through the verm (a verm only casing). i have it 1 in my terrarium and 2 more just hanging in limbo.

i created a new fruiting chamber by using a big rubbermade container and putting wet perlite in the bottom. i will hand mist it.

1. why are the casings taking weeks?
2. will this be a suitable fruiting chamber 4 casings?

That will be a fine chamber.

What are your temps, strain some other details. I had my temps go into the 80s in my chamber and it took almost a week longer for the same strain as usual to start to fruit but when it did it was normal.

"ok. i have casings and it has been weeks. i see myc pokin through the verm (a verm only casing). i have it 1 in my terrarium and 2 more just hanging in limbo."

Just verm on top and bottom? I normally think of verm as appropriate for the bottom layer only. Ok, and so one casing is in a terrarium while others are 'in limbo', what does that mean?

"i created a new fruiting chamber by using a big rubbermade container and putting wet perlite in the bottom. i will hand mist it."

Will this be for the 'in limbo' casings? Wettened perlite on the bottm should provide much of the humidity, so keeping an eye on whether additional misting is necessary is a good idea.

"1. why are the casings taking weeks?
2. will this be a suitable fruiting chamber 4 casings?"

There may be an inadequate temp/humidity situation; does this mean why is it taking so long to colonize the surface? Or have conditions been met to initiate pinning?
Tha'll be a suitable chamber provided temp/humidity conditions are met, some light is available, and there has been a temperature reduction from the colonization stage to the fruiting stage.

You can make it work with broken up bricks. (just tested)

Lava rocks work, and perlite will work but is messy at times.
