Question regarding watering schedule with casings.
    #1820044 - 08/16/03 04:33 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

As stated in an online tutorial on casing:

"Initial water is applied immediately after casing, or at least during the first or second day after casing, and additional applications of water are continued"

it states that you should water either right after you case or atleast the day after.


My question is this...
CASING MATERIAL: Vermiculite & Water

If you've already prepared the verm. with the water why should mist the casing after you complete it?

In my case I will be using plain vermiculite with water.

a 1.5'' substrate level is applied and a heavy 1/4'' of casing (vermiculite)is placed over the spawn, covered with tin foil (w/ 2 holes in it) placed in incubator until growth starts and into fruiting chamber.


So given that scenario, I shouldn't really have to mist my casings until I either patch case or birth into fruiting chamber...?

By misting it, very tiny droplets form on the surface of the casing material. This raises the local relative humidity and reduces evaporation of water from you newly-placed casing. Don't get things wet, just moist. You don't want puddles; just a gentle, light misting.

That's not optimal (like 50/50+), but it should work.

Don't let it sit in the incubator too long. A day or two usually is enough. Cubies have high mycelial momentum; this means that it will keep vegetating for a while even after you initiate fruiting conditions. If you leave it incubating too long, you risk getting an overlay.

Good luck!

Okay I'm confused... Should the casings be taken out of the fruiting chamber? If so where should they be stored?

incubator

fruting chamber/terrarium

two different things. But if your smart, you can figure how to have an all in one setup. But the answer to your question is NO. leave it in the incubator till the mycelia can be seen poking up through the casing layer, but not colonizing the top casing layer, then transfer to a fruiting chamber and induce pinning conditions.

Gotca.. I already got two flurishes from the casing so I didn't think I was doing any thing wrong:)

you must mean flushes. flurishes is not the correct term to use.

very simple.

put in incubator, wrap with saran wrap so u can see through it instead of using tin foil. poke one small hole in the wrap or not doesn't matter.

once u see mycelium come through (2 days, might be less cause afoaf is using cambos) put into fruiting chamber...... drop temps for a few hours, and keep it @ 70 F

the removal of the saran wrap, the drops in temps, and the introduction of light trigger the casings to fruit.
