How important is a terraruim when casing?
    #2242587 - 01/14/04 09:40 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

The temp in my house is about 70 -72 degrees. I have a terrarium which consists of nothing more than a rubbermaid tub some perlite and a plexi glass cover. I read somewhere that I could case my cakes and leave them under the bed and not bother using the terrarium. Is that true? I was going to use the terrarium for my other cakes. Please Help!!! :nonono:

If the relative humidity in your house was 99% (it's not) then you might be okay "just leaving them under your bed." You have a terrarium though, just use it, it will help prevent contamination.

EDIT: If you are casing, and not fruiting, then you will probably want an incubator.

Dear gods I hope you didn't read that on the shroomery!

Unless you the house you live in is at 80% humidity and clean as hell there is almost 0 chance of this working. Depending on where live you would have better luck putting your casings outside!

I posted part of a shroom wizard guide earlier today. I think it was post #2241172 if not its on the 2nd page under can you use soil in a casing. But the guy said that you could leave the casing covered for 7 days in your closet. Can anyone read this and tell me if this guy is right about anything that he said about casing?

You just need to have some type of top to your casing tray that will allow for light to enter and for moisture to stay in.



Do you see how this casing has a top that is just another clear sterilite container like the one that the casing is made in. The bottom one has duct tape on it to keep the light out. The top has a duct tape hinge and clips to snap the front closed. It works fine.
