Hydrogen Peroxide and Casing size
    #1895445 - 09/08/03 08:10 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Im going to be casing 10 cakes pretty soon and I was wondering about the uses for the Hydrogen Peroxide. Im going to be using perlite humidification and misting everyonce in awhile. I know I should put H2O2 in the perlite's water, but what about in the misting water? Also should I put it in the casing material (Im going to be using straight verm) prior to sterilization, or just straight bottled water in there?

Also, about the casings size....
I am planing to case the 10 jars in 10 bread tins that are about 3in by 6in each, with 1 jar to each casing. I know that if I was using a larger casing I would need to use more colonized substrate, but I did a test with a jars worth of uncolonized substrate and it made a 1.5 inch deep layer, which, with the casing layers, is all the bread tins can take. Anyway, my other question is should I get some larger containers and use more cakes in each, or since its the same amount of substrate spread out, make no difference? My theory in doing it in 10 seperate casings was that if something goes wrong with one, only one jar will have been wasted instead of 2-5.

Sorry for the rambling, thanks in advance.

I tried casing once, and I soaked everything in a <1% H2O2 solution and it completely killed all of the previously live mycelium. I posted this in this forum about 2 weeks ago. You will find it if you search for it. If i were you, I would NOT spray any H2O2 directly on any mycelium. PM me if u want more details as to what I did.

Why are you using perlite if you're casing?

H2O2 is usually used at 20ml/L water or less.

I've read both that when casing you should humidify and that there is no reason to. I figured I might as well do it, as there can't be any harm. Can there be?
