Fruiting Time!!! NEED FRUITING ADVICE!!!
    #2425387 - 03/12/04 10:34 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I patch-cased today and put my casings back into my incubator for a day, maybe two.  I then plan on putting them into my fruiting chamber, which is 56qt rubbermaid with a blue lid.

I've got it set with about an inch or more of perlite in the bottom mixed up with distilled water.  I also sprayed the walls with boiled water with a bit of hydrogen peroxide.

I know to keep the temps around 73-76F and to keep the perlite saturated, but I do have questions on misting the casings and chamber walls.  What is the correct daily procedure for misting casings during the fruiting process??  Also, is just regular tap water okay to use, or should I use a mix?? 

One more thing about lighting.  I have a solid cover which will make it hard for light to shine directly above the casings.  Should I cut a hole in the top and tape it up with saran wrap??  Thanks for all of the advice during the home-stretch!!  :yesnod:

I know people who dont mist the caseing unless it looks dry
and you dont need to cut out the top and plastic it up cause light will get through the sides just fine.but you can if you like
