1. Why are you patching a casing? Is this after harvest or before fruiting? Actually either way the best way to patch a casing is to just get some more of the same subtrate you used and lightly cover the parts where there are either holes, or where the mycelium poking through.

2. Dunking casings is not necessary. You should soak your casings for the first three days. You need to have drain holes in the bottom of your container for this.

3. Spraying with H202 is not recommended because it slows the mycelium growth, do this only if you have had a problem with contams. NEVER spray bleach water on mycelium it will kill it!

I slightly disagree with Boobylip.

1.) If this is before you've fruited the casing, patch the first few aggressive patches of mycelium with whatever you orinally cased with (such as vermiculite, NOT with substrate).

2.) Dunking after flushes is apparently a very good idea. Though I'm not sure exactly how you do this (I'm thinking soak the casing for twenty-four hours with drainage holes could work, like Boobylip said). If anyone has a better method, please post it. I'm curious myself.

3.) A 1/10 H2O2/Water combination is considered safe, and is helpful for fighting off contaminates. Many people use this, and many people don't. It's up to you.

Hope this helped, and good luck.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

My friend uses this method and it does wonders for him.

As for H2O2 it is true thats it safe, but it does slow mycelium.
