Casing depth and innoculation...
    #2169862 - 12/08/03 09:57 PM (13 years, 4 days ago)

Hey guys, first post but I've been extensively studying the forums and TEKs before I started up.
I just innoculated 6 1/2 pints with brown rice/verm with GT spores tonite
(praying that most of them dont get contamed)
My syringe was sitting around in room temp for about 3-4 weeks, that has no effect, correct?

Also I was looking at some of your guys casing pics, seems like the shrooms grow pretty tall out of the casing sometimes. (I'm assuming I actually make it to the casing stage but...) Once the shrooms make it to the covering of the casing, will It matter whether or not they continue to grow covered? My only reason for this is that im going to try to keep my casings reasonably concealed

If I understand your question, YES, they will need to remain covered after casing, opening only to fan and mist (and hopefully harvest)

First reason: to maintain humidity.
Second: to keep airborne shit out.

The exception would be a humidified portable closet or other shelf-type chamber, which is still essentially covered.

Good Luck and welcome to the Shroomery!

Right.. I understand the cover needs to be kept on for these reasons, however what about when the shrooms reach a heightwhere they actually grow right up to the cover itself, and the shrooms are perhaps not necessarily ready to be harvested?

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7977 that is the 50/50+ casing tek, it uses two half pint cakes per casing, oh, and the substrate layer thickness should only be 1/4 the thickness of the mycelium layer, and the spores that were room temp will be fine!!! Good Luck!!!

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23805 that is another good casing tek using only one half pint per casing, they are smaller casings

If your shrooms hit the roof they will bend and continue to grow. Excess moisture on the lid can be a problem at this point, so watch that the caps don't get all wet and gooey. They will rot if left in this condition for too long.

Shroom size is directly proportional to substrate depth. Unless you're planning to case a 3-6" layer of sub, don't expect huge mushies.

I prefer several small casings of 1.5 - 2" sub depth that tend to produce many small to medium fruits vs. one large tray with a few monsters.

You can plan for smaller shrooms by doing this, or just allow some extra headroom if you decide to go for the world's record. Of course all this still depends on what you plan on using for a grow chamber.

I've never had a headroom problem. This fella was 65.4g but grew sideways off a fatcake.
