Casing Question
    #2074065 - 11/05/03 07:01 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

After my casings are about three weeks old I have to go away for almost five days. The casings will be in a plastic tub with perlite and will gain air exchange through fanning.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to avoid killing the mushrooms during that five day period? Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks.

Well if you know ahead of time why not just not force the casings to fruit. Let them colonize and recase them when you get back. Otherwise I'd say just them go their course, the worst thing that could happen is they all drop their spores and make a purple mess. I've left them to their own devices for a week and they still grew fine.

There is no way to tell exactly what stage the casings will be in at that time. I'd go buy a fish tank air pump for like 8 bucks at a pet store. Just run the tube into your terrarium. This will take care of air exchange, and your perlite should keep the humidity up. Just mist 'em really good before you leave cause they will probably be on the dry side by the time you get back. I leave casings for a few days all the time with no probelms. The only concern is that if you have fruits that are already partially grown, you will have to pick them pre-maturely or they will drop spores everywhere and start to decompose. This is a small loss though. Pins are fine cause they usually take about 5 days to mature anyway.
