how should I PATCH the casing?
    #2383410 - 02/27/04 03:33 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey there, I got one casing (verm) made from a big PF Cake
of Ecuador, I got one question about it. I couldn't
find no where any explanation for it, so I'm posting the
question:

how should I patch the casing and where? Should I use just
straight vermiculite? Is it really necessary?

Thank you much :thumbup:

Use sterile verm to cover the first few white spots that appear.

the reason people patch is to allow for an even pin set. When all the mycelium starts to poke out all over your casing when you leave it sitting overnight, its time to patch once again and then start to initiate the fruiting process.

Make more casing mix (you know in the microwave with some moisture)!

then just patch with it.

From now on when you make casing mix just make some extra for patching (you will need to patch a good amount when you harvest also.)
