Casing colonization?
    #1901552 - 09/10/03 11:07 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hey all. You guys always seem to be able to help me so I'm gonna drop a question on ya. Here goes. My friend is doing a 50-50+ casing and everything seems to be working out. He has it in a rubbermaid tub and its pretty damn hot in there. He sees a lot of white coming through the top layer of 50-50 casing soil but wants to know if the entire top of the soil will become colonized and white or if only the crubmled middle cakes will grow together and the soil will just remain mostly blck and pin out of the top. also, how much humidity is needed while the casing is colonizing and is alot humidity necessary and vital at this point?? Thanks in advance everyone.

you want the humidity up so that your casing surface dont' dry out too fast. ie: 90 ish %

If you are giving fresh air and light the surface will keep colonizing and p ins shoud show up by the time the surface is 25 to 50 % covered.

good luck.


Sniff, Sniff... What's that smell???... ohhhhh.!!
