beneficial yes, necessary no

why? more moisture for the mycelium to use when pinning and fruiting occur.
laymans meaning: bigger mushrooms/more water content.

do you need to keep the humidity up to 95% with casings? or is that just with cakes?? or are they the same?

Good results can also be had by breaking up the cake in a quart zip lock (as though you were going to case right then), add several ounces of distilled water, seal, and refrigerate for a while. You will find that the cake material absorbs all the water. Then case.

This can also be done after the cake has flushed once with very nice results.

I think its a waste of time from doing it before. I dunked a couple cakes that i could at the time, then birth others that where not dunked. I cased them all the same. The dunked and non-dunked came out the exact same. Big mushies and a lot of them for both cases. Im pretty sure the water in the casing subsrtate is all the mycilium needs for the first flush, and a lot of times the second.

Personally it just delays me 1 day before i get my harvest :wink:

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.
