mushroom_man:

Glad to hear you're having success with your casings... I have a few questions for you if you don't mind:

1. What kind of casing method are you using? Sea of Shroom tek in plastic cups? Multiple half-pint cakes in a metal pie-pan? Care to share any more details on your method?

2. What kind of yield are you getting from your casing method? (in # of shrooms per half-pint cake, wet grams per cake, or dried grams per cake, whichever)

thanks,
c

Ok...I used the little meatloaf pans you can get at grocery stores....they are about 6-7" long, 4"across, and about 3-4"deep...I got them 5 for 1.19. I used one half pint cake in each, sitting on a bed (3/4") of moist (not wet) vermiculite...I crumbled them up into peices about the size of grapes...then I used a soil for seedlings...I think it was Scotts...make sure there is no fertilizer added...it said the soil was vermiculite and peat...it said to expect that the mixture was about 55-60% vermiculite, so I added a couple handfuls of peat moss to make it close to 50/50...I cased them about 1/2-3/4 of an inch thick, sprayed with sterilized water, and waited...they loved it...I had to spray them with peroxide twice because cobweb mold tried to get in...but it doesn't stand a chance...I'm all over it..watching them all the time and staring at them for like hours...I truly love shrooms...especially growing them...I am totally taken by the whole idea of them....I ate them a lot before I grew them, but now this has become a religion...and it totally fits my character...all I can say is if you put the good stuff in (your love and time)...the good stuff will come out of it..just like everything else...(especially when other PEOPLE aren't involved " :smile: anyway, I don't know about the total yeild, because I am just getting my first flush, but lemme say this...I cased 7-1/2 pint cakes, and I have over a hundred pins...most of which are getting into the beautiful medium sized bullet cap stage that I love so much.....I usually pick them before the veil breaks, so I should be harvesting saturday at the rate they are growing....they double in size every day now....I will make a post about my first flush's final weight....

Mushman-- did you cold shock the casings? How long after colonization of the casing layer did pins begin to form? And what temp. is your terrarium? Hopefully my first casings will work. I'm jealous now... :wink:

mushroom_man:

We are all getting very excited to hear of your success! PhilosoPossum had a few good questions in the message right above this one, I hope you'll answer them...

You said that you had a slight problem with cobweb mold on your casings... this is my biggest fear when it comes to casing. Can you give us some tips on how you successfully won the battle again cobweb mold? Do you just spray it with some hydrogen peroxide and that does the trick? Or are more advance techniques involved? Thanks, and good luck with the harvest this weekend! I'm sure you'll let us know what your total yield is from those seven cased 1/2 pint jars, inquiring minds want to know... :smile:

take care
c

I destroyed my mushroom experiments long ago after I realized that breaking the law subverts all values of our society.
however initial data could be extrapolated into:
6 brown rice flour 1/2 pint cakes sliced into 9 inch long by 3.5 inch deep by 4 inches wide "giant loaf trays", cased with 50/50 + limestone and some hi calcium grit might have yielded about 220 grams wet, something like 27 grams dry it seems. Yumm.
This was my first flush, and my first try.

Never again. My friends are still involved in this subversive and destructive behavior.
poor misguided souls.

Way to go, Mushroom Man! Thanks for the post. It's given me a little more confidence about my first casing that's about a week old.

~n1mr0d, I have only seen a few people as stupid as you, actually, most of society is, but now to the point, you buy all the bs society and the government shoves at you.

"I destroyed my mushroom experiments long ago after I realized that breaking the law subverts all values of our society."

And what is the law? A large portion of it is bullshit beliefs, I suppose you think alcohol is ok and weed should remain illegal? Why don't you just put a sign on your head "Tell me what to think, how to live, I am a servant of the us propoganda system and servile way of life".

Never again. My friends are still involved in this subversive and destructive behavior.
poor misguided souls.

Your friends just may be your only chance to redeem yourself. You are the misguided one here pal, their behavior may be "detructive" according to DARE, but I am sure if you experience a sporitual revelation through the mushrooms, then you will see differentely.

Uhhh. I'm purdy shure he was a kiddin. Either that, or using it as a precursor, to protect himself. I doubt there is anyone on this site with a reasonable amount of knowledge that doesn't try to cultivate. That is except for me of course. :wink:

Bad day at the office Wild? Don't take things so seriously in here. He was giving some good tips, don't knock him for sharing his knowledge with everyone.

Growing anythings that is illegal is considered manufacture of an illegal substance, and is punishable by putting the offender in a small barred room for many years where your sink doubles as a toilet, and your new girlfriend is a man who thought you were worth approximately 5 cigarettes.

Call me old fashioned, but I don't want to live in such a place. I keep my plant & fungus growing to a legal status, for not biding by the laws set forth by our wonderful government would have the potential of putting me in the "wonderland" described above rather quickly, not to mention cost me many many dollars. That is why when I talk about production of illegal plants or fungus, I keep it theoretical. I had a dream about growing P. Cubensis, or read the diary of a friend of mine who recorded what happened when he grew Lophophora Williamsii. These "theoretical" plants and fungus are completely legal since they don't actually exist.

If the government even gets a hint that I *actually* would even think about breaking what they consider major laws (ie controlled substance production) they COULD figure out who I am, where I live, and keep an eye on me (legal to do). I don't care to have people keeping an eye on me, thus I don't do anything illegal.

Do illegal things = Possibility of getting fines/jail time

Do legal things = NO FINE/JAIL TIME

And if you don't want the government to put you in the place described above, or for them to take money away from you (and lots of it :wink: ) then don't do/talk about doing illegal things :smile:

peace
