Does it seems ok? My First Casing
    #2808830 - 06/19/04 03:17 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi;
I made a casing for the first time. This is my second time to grow cubensis. First time was successful. I used a plastic container for the casing. Put some moist vermiculate on the base and break cake into small pieces over vermiculate and on top of it i put moistened peatmoss + vermiculate  mixture. Put some perlite in the terrarium, moist it and put the casing on the perlite.
I put some photos to take some feedback if everything seems ok.
I put a small hole in the bottom of terrarium for co2 exchange.
After 2 days i could see the myceliums grow over the casing soil.
is the light time important? like so much light will hurt or not.

Should i do anything to start pinhead growing or just wait and see? the temperature is about 78F (about 26-27 Celcius) I just moisture and ventilate manually 1-2 times a day.

When i should see the first pinheads? 2 or 5 days or when?

Can i use hydrogel instead of vermiculate+peatmoss mixture for the top of the casing? Hydrogel keeps water and has plant foods inside. I thought it is a good idea but never heard of its usage for casings.


This is crumbled cake over vermiculate.


This is my casing in the terrarium over perlite.


This is my poor terrarium.

Sorry for my english :smile:

I covered my casing for the first 2 days. My peat moss' ph level is about 5.5 - 6 . Should i increase it? if so how?
I know i ask too much but my english is not so good and can only find english written teks not in my language so i have some troubles about understanding teks.

My First Casing - Picture Update [Re: WebLiZaRD]
    #2810916 - 06/20/04 12:28 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Today is 3rd day. Temp. is about 82F ( 28 celcius) humidity is as high as possible. I don't want to patch the first mycelium because i don't want my casing top full of mycelium. I think this is better.
I put a regular light source (lamp) on top of terrarium. I fan 3-4 times a day for co2 come down. Spray some water but not too much just a little. I put a glass of water in the terrarium i think it will help to keep humidity high.
These pictures taken today the 3rd day. I think everything goes ok :smile: But i know that it is too early to talk...

I think there is no option to drop the temperature. The weather is always hot here. About 85F. The only thing that i think is to put some ice in terrarium. But i don't know if it will work.
Mycelium in the casing are growing. They are not still. will it be problem if i patch it now and cover the casing with saran wrap and wait till %30-50 colonized?
Because i forced mycelium to fruit since yesterday. I am worrying if i patch them and put them into dark place again to colonize more it will hurt'em. Maybe i am wrong maybe not. Just a thought of a newbie. :=)
