casing too hot when put on?
    #2246649 - 01/16/04 06:28 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

let's say colonized straw was cased with straight verm which was nuked for 5 min, stirred and nuked again for 5 min and cooled for 15 minutes then put on the straw. the casing felt warm while being put on. the verm was to a depth of 2" for ~4" of straw. 4 days later the mycelium still hasn't broken through the surface. What do you guys think about this situation? I'm worried that the verm was too hot when it was put on.

Thats what im thinking. I guess just wait and see couldnt hurt, and maybe it just set the growth back a few days to a week.

yeah, that's a really thick casing layer...you have to remember that the mycelium doesn't colonize the casign layer, it just grows up through it. if it was warm to the touch, and didn't feel hot, chances are good that it wasn't so hot so as to kill the mycelium. but 2-4" of casing layer is waaaaay thick.
