can I stall my casing
    #2097340 - 11/12/03 03:19 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

My friend is going away from his setup for a while and would like to know if it was possible for him to stall his casings. They are about 80% colonized. Thanks for the help

Refrigeration does work to "stall" mycelia growth. However, when Anno did this as part of his substrate testing procedure, pinning / fructification was dramatically reduced. A few days and you should be fine. If you have to, let it fully colonize and patch case it. You can keep patching as long as need be, or patch the showing mycelia and put on another 1/4" or so, let it go like that.

Best you can do is put it in the fridge and hope for the best. Why are your casings 80% colonized? That's overlay....

depends how long, if its just a week, then room temp
in the dark should be ok, anylonger and you need to use a fridge,
make sure its set on 4 to 5?c.
Rember that if its already reached the surface and been
in the light, pinning may have started, if this is the case, at the worse you will return to a few over old fruits on the surface.

contams arent normally a problem for me, i should have said that.

This is my friends first time getting this far and he really appreciates all the help. He has some B+ on millet cased with verm on the bottom and peat moss on the top. He covered them with platic wrap to allow mycellium to grow through it. The casings are in an incubator but he's not doing anything for humidity because he still has the casings covered. Mycellium has covered approximately 75-80% of the casing surface. It has been about 7 days since casing. But he is leaving in a week for about a week. Does anyone have any suggestions about what to do. Should he try to fruit right now or stall them until he gets back. Thanks for the help.
