When to case straw
    #2021762 - 10/19/03 02:12 AM (13 years, 9 days ago)

My dog has two large rubbermaid containers that were spawned with rye grain. He's not sure how to tell if the straw is completely covered, there seems to be a little bit here and there of straw not touched. How covered should the straw be before you case? He thinks the straw may be a little too wet and that is the reason one is some what stunted.

if there's only a few strands still yellow, clean a tweezer and pluck em out to be on the safe side. some say that it must go all white in 10 days, or it's headed for disaster - another reason for being generous with the spawn. or you could just case the tub now, if all seems to be progressing well. use about a quarter of the substrate thickness (eg straw white bulk block is 4" thick, use 1" casing) but no more than a couple of inches even if the straw is a mile deep.

good luck lamik  :smile: :thumbup: :kiss:
