casing conundrums
    #2020158 - 10/18/03 10:33 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey folks,

I've got a couple casings. They've each got one half pint PF cake in them and are cased in plain verm. The casing layer was not as methodically applied as it should have been, so it is decidedly uneven. Mycelium has dutifully appeared here and there on the casing surface, but is primarily still the vermiculite. After the mycelium appeared the casings were cold shocked for 20 hours then placed in to the fuiting chamber. Right now there is one shroomie growing towards the edge on one of them.

I haven't been misting at all, as the humidity in the terrarium has been pretty high (which has surprisingly enough not resulted in any sort of overabundance of mycelial growth on top).

So, in wanting to actually yield a decent amount of mushrooms, what might I do to help these casings along? I'm not sure if using a clean instrument to evenly spread the casing layer around more is cool to do, since there is /a/ shroom growing towards the side. Should I be misting in spite of the humidity? and should the majority of the surface still be plain verm? What else should I know?

All help is very much appreciated ^_^

You havent been misting at all? Boo  :thumbdown:
get your mist on, the casing layer will love it, and the mycelium will too. However, try to avoid the pins, if any.
and next time you apply the casing layer stick it directly into the fruiting chamber. No need to incubate, the BRF that is cased is already colonized. Try to go for a 50/50 casing nextime as well... coir holds an amazing amount of water.
Goodluck, and dont raise your expectations too high. You'll just end up being dissapointed. Be happy if you get a few fruits, your substrate layer isnt that deep and your not doing bulk.  :cool:
