A few casing questions
    #2835013 - 06/28/04 01:15 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Do I still need a drip shield in my terrarium when fruiting cycle starts? That being said, when I mist, how often should I do it and should it be on the casing layer or on top of the drip shield? Fanning is 3x a day right? Also, should I keep my humidity at 90% all through the cycle, or higher before pinning/pre pinning? THanks everybody

Personally, I don't pay too much attention to mist on the pins.
Matter of fact, I mist the casings directly, even when there ARE pins.

Hasn't given me any problems so far.

I also dont fan, I have my casings in one of those indoor greenhouses. Opening it up once a day seems to do the job.
But I understand things are a bit different, when you're using a terrarium. But then again, when I was taking care of MJ's terrariums, I never fanned them, and the things still got HUGE!!!

The air volume of whatever container is being used and the amount of mushies grown in that volume of air make the amount of fanning necessary highly variable.

I agree about spraying pins directly, it shouldn't be a problem as long as you don't over do it (there shouldn't be standing water on cakes or casings, this will invite contams), and make sure you're spraying sterile water.
