What did I do wrong?
    #1829419 - 08/19/03 01:39 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Ive done casings before with the same problem so I am going to ask about this. I use rye grain in my jars and they colonize very nicely and rarely get contams.. I take the good jars and spawn them to 60/40 poo/straw mixture that has been pasteurized, then i case them with verm/coco coir/a little oyster shells. I keep them in a dark place that has temps in the mid 80's and the humidity around 80-90 percent. I patch case them until they are even then i put them into a fruiting chamber. I allow them 4-6 hours of indirect light a day and keep the temp in the mid 80s and the humidty about the same as before.. I always end up getting a huge first flush but then the casing always seems to contam after the first flush .. anyone know anything I could do to help this?

Spray down with an h2o2 mixture (50:1) after every flush. Also catch contams quick and cut them out from the casing asap. THen fill the cut out with some more h2o2 mixture. Anyway good luck with your next! At least ur getting flushes

are you misting regularly with diluted h2o2? This helps a lot. also check the enviroment in which your keeping your grow op, this can also effect the sterility of your grow.

damn I misted with h202 the first few casings ive done but i totally forgot about that.. this must be where the problem is.. when you mist do you spray the casing layer? or do you spray the walls of the chamber? I am using perlite in the bottom of the fruiting chamber with h202/h20 in it to keep humidity up.

I spray the casing layer very carefully. I keep the mister close to the casing so I don't drench any pins/fruits, as well as the walls of the casing container, terrarium and the perlite too.
