misting the casing
    #2448433 - 03/18/04 08:02 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

what is the best technique to mist the casing, or what is the best way to keep the casing hydrated? I used to mist the casing directly, but this seemed to damage the mycelium and i experienced heavy matting... maybe i shouldnt have allowed the mycelium to overtake the surface... help!

keep high rH so not much of the water evaporates from the casing. While adding water use the fines droplets you can accomplish, or only do the walls of the terrarium.

I had sorta the same problem. Every time i would mist the top of the casing i would get a lot of aborts.

Since i did the 50/50 TEK i had to put verm below the substrate. The case always shrinks after its first flush, so you can just lift the casing out and water the verm below. Works perfect.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

Regular misting will not cause overlay/matting. For optimal timing for fruiting and to avoid overlay, once the first spots of mycelium break through the casing layer, patch case, and expose to fruiting conditions RIGHT AWAY (air exchange and light). There is no need to wait for further colonization of the casing layer as it can easily lead to overlay. You can directly mist the casing layer whenever necessary, but try to avoid misting maturing mushrooms.

would cold shocking at this point be good?
