Casing Question...
    #1957629 - 09/27/03 06:01 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Well I figured I'd try one casing just for the hell of it. I broke up 3 1/2 pint cakes and put them in a porcelin casserole dish. I put a thin layer of moist sterilized verm on top, just enough so none of the pieces of cakes where visable. I put tin foil over the top and poked 6 holes in it with a pen. I know this is all probably in the FAQ, but I want advice from someone that has done casings before and knows wtf they are doing. Now I will tell you what I think I need to do, tel me if im wrong and correct me if im wrong. I wait 3 days take the tinfoil off and if any of the verm on the top is colonized I patch the spots with casing material. Then I wait about 3 more days and repeat the same thing and then stick it in the pod. Is this correct? Or do I let the whole top casing layer colonize then fruit it, because I have seen pictures that appeared like thats what they did. Thanks in advance.

The thing you want to do is get even growth. The reason you patch is so the foremost growth has some more colonizing to do. And you want it to finish right as the mycelium on other parts of the casing finishes. Patch as much as you need to until you have about 60-70% of the casing colonized. Then fruit like you would a cakem but you only need 80% humidity now.

you need to stick your casing in the fruiting chamber now and mist the verm layer every day. Don't patch until you harvest. The even growth should already happen if the colonized substrate was even before you applied the verm...
