casing questions
    #2787964 - 06/12/04 04:22 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

i have a growbag that is almost 100% colonized. instead of doing a fruit inside the bag, i think i might give casing a try. anyhow, i got a few questions hopefully some of you could help me out with...

1. i was thinking of sterilizing the casing layer in an oven.....what is the recomended baking temp. and time? i was going to use a foil pan. should i cover the top with a sheet of foil w/ holes poked through?
2. is rubbing alchohol good for sterilizing a plastic fruiting container?
3. in regards to the bottom layer, underneith the crumbled cake, would a damp layer of perlite be reccomended or should i just use verm.?
4. now, when the casing is all set up, and i want the mycelium to "FEED" a little more to the top of the casing layer....what should the temps be? i assume it would be the same as incubating temps, but i wanted to make sure that was correct.
5. i'm operating without a RH meter and thermometer, so precise readings can't be accieved....would something like 4" of damp perlite be okay for humidity? i have the set up in a closet next to an attic, so the temps are around 70-80 (unless i'm incubating then they go into the 'fishtank heater' set-up).

any comments and advice are greatly appreciated. thanks for your time.
peace :rastamon: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

1. not sure about oven times, I use a PC.

2. yes, works good for me, make sure it sterilizing alchol.

3. Use what even you use for your casing, or verm will do. (maybe I just don't like perlite, maybe its not noise it makes, creepy)

4. Cover it in tin foil, poke a few holes, an keep it at incubation temp (84f) until mycelium pokes through. Use your fishtank heater thing.

5. casings provide quite a bit of their own humidity, just remember to mist and keep the layer moist. Bit a little perlite (urgh) maybe a good idea if you live in a dry area. Remember to mist lightly and fan for air exchange 2-3 times a day.
