Correct me if I'm wrong.. Casing.
    #1778672 - 08/04/03 05:29 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Just trying to refresh my memory on how I plan to case my oyster mushrooms. So here I go...

1 Pint Jars containing millet seed

1. take each jar and swiftly dump the cake into zip-lock baggie. do not seal because the vacum can suck in contams. break up cake into small pieces. (get bags large enough to fit 2 cakes)

2. poor crumbled pieces into casing tray 1'' deep. cover with damp vermiculite aprox. 3/8'' deep.

3. cover each casing tray with tin foil and place BACK into INCUBATOR at 80 degrees F for aprox. 4-5 days.

--- Once you begin to see mycelium poking through the casing layer, if it's not an even growth simply patch but if it is you place in fruiting chamber at 75 degrees F and 85% relative humidity.

Covering the trays in tin foil accomplishes the raise in co2, high humidity and more material to colonize... thus when you take tin foil off your droping co2, adding light and drop in temps, thus initiating pinning.

We all know if you wait too long without putting in fruiting chamber it can possibly lead to overlay.

so far so good?
