Don't get it...
    #2529174 - 04/05/04 10:14 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I've been doing cakes only because I'm still new to growing. I've tried a couple casings, wbs and brf cakes, both cased in verm to make it simple. I got as far as them pinning then green appears. Any ideas why I get this far then green shows?

Put verm in microwave for 6 or so minutes.

Try using some diluted H202 for misting, sterilize casing layer, make sure area kept in is clean. It's usually the cultivators sterility habits that create the hinderances commonly encountered.

I thought I let it cool plenty, do you really think that if it wasn't cooled properly could cause green though? As far as H2O2 can I get that in store, I was misting with water every once in awhile to keep a little moisture in casing.

well, it's not only that. Too much moisture in a casing can harbour contams, as well as messing with it a lot. Be patient. Try using 60/40 or 50/50+ for casing rather than straight verm.

possible too much moisture keep humidity at 87-95 and youll be okay on the mold, mist with diluted h2o as said.

Ok thanks, guess I might have messed it up with too much moisture. I guess I will try 60/40 or 50/50. I just thought that straight verm was good, easy way to do a casing without many contam worries, I have never done one so I went this route.

Oh course. H2O2 is Hydrogen Peroxide. It's usually found where first aid supplies are found. Buy the big bottle amd use it liberally.

1. Mix casing mix if you do or are going to.

2. Load into jars

3. PC at 15 psi for a hour

4. Let cool and pour from the jar onto the casing

A mix of 70% coir or so and 30% verm or.
