is my casing ready?
    #1848262 - 08/25/03 02:28 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Sorry i don't have a pic but i'll describe it to yo guys the best i can. I recently cased with 4 1/2 pint cakes of lipa yais in a mixture of peat moss, vermiculite, and lime stone flour. 8:8:1 respectively. Well, the first week it was coming along pretty well, There were a lot of clumps of white mycelium popping out throughout the case but in the recent week things haven't changed. I am not sure if it's ready to case yet or not, the sides aren't white but they are pulling back from the sides a little which is an indication that it's colonizing right? Well, any help will be appreciated, thanx.

If the sides are pulling back, your mycelium is running low on water.
Give the casing a good spraying twice a day for a few days. Preferably on the side which are pulling back.
Is the casing fully colonized? This would be the reason, why nothing is changing. Try to "deep scratch" (Casing FAQ) and try again.
If not, lower the humidity and temp, which should initiate pinning.
Some strains need a "cold shock" (again Shroomery FAQ). I have never needed to do this , as Ive only worked with "easy" strains.
As I too am not very experienced, please correct me if I said something wrong.
Good luck,

how are you providing your humidity? remember that casings provide the bulk of the humidity needed. White clumps sound like cauliflower to me and this is a sign of high humidity. Make sure you are fanning on a daily basis.
