1st casing
    #2122316 - 11/19/03 11:51 AM (13 years, 21 days ago)

Just finished my first casing.  Used vermiculite on the bottom added 2 1/2 pint colonized GT cakes.  Then added cow manure and last another layer of vermiculite on top to help keep cotams out.  Will let you guys know how it comes out wish me luck :smile:

One question the syram wrap will hold the proper moister while it incubates or should i check it every now and agian and see if its staying wet enough?

how bigs your container?
did you pasturize the poo
put some pinholes in the saran for some air escape.
goodluck

I don't put holes in the saran wrap -- I just fan and mist every day -- just me. Keep an eye on the casing layer -- it'll change colour if it's drying out -- don't let it dry out, but saran wrap works fine.

i did'nt at 1st either but i noticed they seemed to stall in some spots and smell sought of stale so now i pin-prick it.
i don't like to take the chance of contaminating it with fanning whilst it incubates.

it must be spread thin,i probably would have put 4 1/2 pints in it,it would colonize heaps quicker,cutting down the contamn risks.and give more fruits.

Ill remeber that for the next one i do here in a couple days. Reason i did this is cause im going out of town this weekend and didnt want to leave those two lone 100% colonized jars in there all weekend while i was gone. The other ones (Maz) are days behind and i think will be fine to leave.

another thing i missed ,was your supposed to spawn the cake to poo by mixing it up and then incubating it till it colonises the poo and then you case it with coir/verm or just verm.
the myc might have a bit of trouble getting thru the poo layer.

lol,it might be ok but its still not too late to change it,just get a sterile fork dipped in sodiumchloride and scrape the top layer of verm off it,mix up the rest in the container and cover it with foil(pin pricked)or sarran if its not in a dark spot.
i think that would be your best bet.

I think fanning it helps prevent contamination by scattering stale air pockets. I only fan every other day while it's colonizing, though, so it goes faster. I haven't really ever had a problem with contamination, so I figure that's at least what works the best for me.
