dunk casing? or just mist?
    #2690216 - 05/17/04 06:36 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I haven't tried yet, so I thought I'd ask.

If you don't dunk a casing between flushes, can you achieve the same results purely by misting it?

I ask as dunking can be hard sometimes, and if I don't have to I don't want to!

Or, is dunking beneficial in other ways? ie does dunking in h202 really "clean" the substrate? (or bleach dip even)

Do not do a bleach dip, ever. (unless your dipping some tools or something)

Yeah, just recase the places that have exposed myc and mist it down. You'll be fine.

misting is just fine, though dunking does tend to boost the size of fruits for me noticably (but not humongously!)

and as far as cleaning the substrate goes ive never heard that... youre just giving it a prolonged drink of water.

but hell, misting worked juuust fine for my first three grows, and when im lazy now its still works just fine!

I posted this a while back, so I'll just copy/paste it lol.

Dunk or spray, up to you.

*******************************

If you go the the way of dunking, you'll want trays with drainage holes.



If you go drainage holes, you better put in an inert layer, i.e. a 60/40 so the substrate isn't exposed to the open air.



Following pics of direct-to-the-fruiting-chamber. If you incubate/patch, you will get a more even pin set in 1st flush.

A first flush
(note: no dunking until after 1st flush)...



Dunk over night underwater, brick on top to hold it down. Let it drain, re-patch lost 60/40, back to the fruit terrarium.



2nd flush...



Dunked again, 3rd flush.



Dunked again 4th flush.



Dunked again, a 5th flush starting...



Another tray, 2nd flush. It too was dunked after 1st flush. The 1st flush on this one was a little disappointing, but it made ground in the 2nd & 3rd flush.



Again dunk. 3rd flush...



You can keep going and dunk each time. Here's a 7th flush.



When it's all over, the case has shrunk. It's spent.



One thing you'll note doing this, the 1st flush is generally the big show. But it can get a little odd after 2nd flush i.e. a 3rd flush may even be better than a 2nd one. You should get 100 grams dry shrooms or better (in sum of flushes) out of 500 grams millet.

Quote/Reply from my friend:

"Thanks for the replies everyone, I guess it's OK to mist... but you can achieve larger fruits with a dunk.

It's just dunking can be very annoying... I guess I should just test this out for myself.

Also, why are you against bleach dipping Magash? I realise it's a controversial subject - I had a 1/2 pint test casing (my first casing to be exact) that smelled a lot like old socks.... so I assumed bacterial contamination. I figured I didn't have anything to loose so I did the 1:200 water:bleach ratio and dunked for 30 mins - I followed this with a standard h202 dunk for around 24 hrs.

This casing has flushed just fine after it's bleach dunk & smells as shroomey as ever - or is this not the issue? are fruits that come from a bleach dunked substrate safe to eat?"

Cheers
