gonna try a casing...
    #2051131 - 10/28/03 06:11 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

ok, so ive read a bunch of old threads on casings and thir humidity, and came to the conclusion that once pinning has been initiated, the rh should be dropped to about 85...this can be maintained through daily misting, or should i try using some perlite instead? i have grown plenty of shrooms by just letting the cakes fruit, which require a rh near 100... i want to try casings, tired of lookig at all these pics of massive flushes from casings, then looknig at my cakes with a tear in my eye.... (a bit jelous i suppose :smirk:)

anyway, this will be my first attempt at this, i guess im just a little concerned that i may mess it all up. i plan on keeping it simple, and going with a straight vermiculite casing layer....

basicly i am just wondering what ways work best for controling the rh... a few words from those who have gone before me would be very helpfull in my days ahead.

how's your WOW?

I would put perlite on the bottom of your fruiting chamber, this way you don?t have to keep spraying everyday and the humidity will always be at a good level, also you will only need to worry about fanning. You may already now what to do with the perlite but I'll type it up anyway. Wear a mask as perlite contains glass fibres. Make the perlite wet with plain tap water, you can serialize the water, but there's no need to, and then drain the water out put the perlite in a microwavable container with a lid on, then put it in the microwave for 5-10 minutes this depends on how powerful you microwave is mine is a 950W so I only microwave for 2 then shake the container don't open the lid and don't touch it with you bare hands use a towel don't want to burn those hands. Then I put it in for another 3 minutes let it cool then put it in the fruiting chamber. Do the same sterilization tek with your vermiculite as well. Hope this helped. Just encase you wondered what sort of results you will get from a straight verm here?s my results. Happy shrooming.

ya, i figured as much...i have been using perlite for my cakes...

guess i was just wondering if using perlite might give me too much humidity...i suppose if i use less perlite, i can get the rh down...
:grin:

anyway, thanx...i just needed a little reasurance...im worried that i might screw it all up (i always tend to second guess myself, ill probably be fine)

my order from ralphster just got sent today, so im just waitin on the mail now....anyway, im really looking foward to my first casing :thumbup:

You can fruit a casing in a growing chamber designed for cakes.
