Casings?
    #2310243 - 02/06/04 11:45 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Im assuming a casing is the larger tray covered with substrate instead of the cakes. I was wondering though, how is everythign sterilized and kept that way if its out in the open on a tray? I tried the cakes and had descent reslts, but id like to cultivate a large ammount. thanks

Pasturize the casing its better and also you keep the casing in a fruiting chamber just like cakes so I dont understand your question

Guys...this is a great question...
i've been searching these logs for the information on casing. I can't find anything though. Nothing that is a really good breakdown for a novice.
Can anyone direct me in the right direction?

The casing layer doesnt have any nutritional value to most contaminants and the ph level with lime added helps aid in this. The casing layer keeps a protective barrier to some extent from bad stuff coming in contact with the substrate layer. But you still have to keep everything clean. Green mold and cobweb mold can even attack the casing layer. Casings are just another way to get bulk flushes, the aseptic practices are still kept.:)bluhoney

I'd just like to add that Greenies and Trich not only can attack the casing layer, but a peat based casing layer amy actually increase your chance of encountering these contams.

Also, the function of the casing layer is to provide an ideal microclimate and texture for primordia formation.

So by using the 50/50 tek casing your chances of green mold is increased? that sucks because i hear the 50/50 is the best casing for growth out there, if i use the 50/50+ which contains both oyster shell and hydrated lime will my chances of sucess increase and chances of mold decrease as the lime helps keep out contams or so i read?

Just say NO to police searches!
