first sucessful casing!
    #2188580 - 12/18/03 07:59 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

so after 3 botched casing attempts a foaf finally got a casing to pin and more importantly it even made it to the second flush. between the first and second flush some green meanies invaded and about a 1/5 of the casing was removed. two different times within two days of each other the casing had to be cut but each time a h202 solution and some table salt was used all around the cut to kill any mold. he figured the mold had taken over and was just hoping to finish the second flush. surprisingly though, it's been 3 days and still no mold. so now he doesn't know if he should patch it with some new casing soil and go for a third bout or toss it and make a new one cause he already has some jars colonized. by the way he's been learning to grow for a while now and it wasn't until he found this site that he really learned how the fungi work. thanks guys

Congrats on the job well done :thumbup: The contamination has to be getting in your process somewhere along the line. What methods did you use for the projects as far as cleanliness? Think about it and see if you can narrow it down so next time, you can have sightly better results.

a pmp set up that runs between 73-77 temp and 92% rh. the casing was absolutely perfect after first flush using 50/50+ tek. 50/50+ was put back over the top and it wasn't till about a week later that the green popped up. i have a feeling it came back because while scooping it fell apart and some fell back onto the casing. but as far as the origin of the mold i have no idea. could be cause the lid was set on the carpet standing up while harvesting. i was so happy about the first flush i forgot about sterility.

>>50/50+ was put back over the top and it wasn't till about a week later that the green popped up.

Maybe the casing layer had some trich in there to start with?

What strain? Got any pics?

Your lucky, my friend is never able to even get a second flush out of his casings, but afterwards I think yourse is probably worn thin.. Plus you've already had some mold attacks so their bound to keep coming (they always do..) so since you already have more cakes almost ready i'd just toss it and get a new one cooking.
