Casing not growing, could air exchange be the problem
    #2746221 - 05/30/04 11:54 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I have my casings inside one of those disposable ziploc bowls, the kind with the air tight lids on them. I have had the lid on air tight and nothing is happening, no fuzzy white mycelium. I thought maybe the fact that the lid is on air tight might be the problem, so i unsealed it and just set it on the bowl loosely. Any other ideas?

Good idea on loosening the lid. You might have had C02 buildup which will lag growth. Do you have your casing container inside of a bigger fruiting chamber? I was just wondering why you even had a lid on top.

You know I had the same prob and switched to foil instead of the covers that come with them.

Boom.

"Do you have your casing container inside of a bigger fruiting chamber?"

i just put them inside a styrofoam ice chest until the broken up pieces grew back together, i was going to wait until the mycelium started poking through before i put them in a fruiting chamber.

i changed to tin foil with some holes poked in the top, hopefully this will work better.

YOu don't need the holes. The foil won't make a air tight seal. I do the same I just wait till the myc starts to poke threw and put in the chamber.
