ice packs
    #2723316 - 05/24/04 04:37 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

just wondering if anyone has tried this, and the degree of success ...

putting an ice pack under the casing container as it's put into the terrarium so that the temperature drops just enough to initiate pinning?  i think it's a wonderful idea.  i'm thinking change the packs every 6 hours or so and keep some in the freezer so that the rotation isn't broken ... that and fanning 3X a day should initiate some pins quickly.  what do you guys think? :thumbup: :mushroom2:

because other people use the fridge, and the fridge is questionable contamination-wise.

I think if you put one pack under each casing container, the cold would transfer. It seems like a great idea.

Ya it worked for me, even putting an ice pack beside it works...but underneath sounds better!

Yea, I just used ice packs this weekend to cold shock, but if its making things too cold then put a cloth or something in between.

because you can take advantage of the large space to keep co2 levels down. besides, i don't think a casing pan would fit in a lunchbox ... just put the pan right on the pack, it should do the trick.

Hell ye it works! did it my self, but it all depends on what species your growing too. Some don't need it. Except if your temperature is still at incubation levels.

That's a fine little shroom!!!

For my next fruiting of casings, my friend said he would let me borough his old coolent tubing he had for his kick ass computer. I think this might be a good idea i got goin on!
