About to Case soon....need expert advice!! Simplemachine :)
    #2380096 - 02/26/04 05:05 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ok...my jars are starting to colonize a lot quicker now that I took off the tin foil and flipped them upside down.  I'm about to case these suckers within the week, so I wanted to get some advice on the best route and procedures with the supplies I have.

Supplies:
*6 colonized 1/2 pint jars
*5 (5x5x2) plastic containers
*60qt 13in tall clear rubbermaid container w/blue top
*1 brick of coco coir
*1 bag of vermiculite
*1 bag of perlite
*1 bottle of rubbing alcohol
*1 bottle of hydrogen peroxide
*1 box of tin foil and suran wrap
*1 spray bottle

I'm basically seeking advice on the most effective way to case and fruit these jars; as well as when to actually pull the subtrate from the jars (cold shock first?).  Also, I'm curious about misting daily with something and also fanning throughout the day.  I'm usually always home so it's not a problem for me to fan and/or mist throughout the day.  Thanks again for all of the help!!  Hopefully this will turn out to be a very successful first attempt!! :biggrin:

Dunk/Cold Shock cakes. Break them up and place them into container. Let that incubate. Mix coir and vermiculate together --> use as casing. Put that on top of the broken up cakes, mist it down, and thats it.

There's more to it than that I'm sure.  I need to figure the exact amount of perlite to put in the chamber, how much subtrate/coir/verm to use in each 5x5x2 containers, how much water to add, what solution to spray to avoid contams, etc, etc.  Is there a link somewhere that better describes the casing and fruiting procedures other than the fungifun.org way??  I just want to make sure after all this waiting that things proceed at best :smile:

dude, check out the faq's. I think there are some casing recipes in there for coir/verm. As for contamination, it isn't as big a deal during fruiting as it is during incubation. Spray some lysol on the counter and in the air, avoid drafts and use clean equipment. A bottle of rubbing alcohol is your best friend, sterilize all your shit with it before hand, the pans, any instruments, etc. You wanna use about 1 inch of casing for every 4 of substrate depth, or so I hear, that's what I've been following anyways. Check out the faq's, if you can follow directions you'll be gravy.

No, there really isn't, I'm sure too. With the materials you have thats basically all you can/need do. Dont need perlite for casing.

there is no exact perfect way, after reading FAQ, do your own dilly,and report results. :thumbup:

we all learn from eachother.

Hey dude, I know what you mean.  My kitten is about to start her first casing adventure and I keep overthinking it...like, "There has to be more to it then this!"  But just follow the directions, don't overstress it, and I think you'll be fine.  :wink:  Lets hope my kitten will be too!

Good luck!
