Dry casing.
    #2901984 - 07/18/04 11:28 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

My casing's color is lightening up a good deal, I'm afraid it's drying out! It's coir/verm. I would just give it a thorough misting, but there are quite a few pins starting to pop up. I've been fanning alot (probably too much), but I've been misting the sides of the fruiting container too and it takes a good while for the condensation to evaporate, so I figure my humidity must be pretty high. I also have a layer of damp perlite under my casing containers, and the temp is roughly between 20? and 25?C, sometimes a bit higher. How do I fix this? Could I inject a bit of sterile water into the casing with a syringe or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds more like the casing layer is getting dry. Try and spray around the shrooms a little water isn't gonna kill em or cause mass aborts.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?

This is a subject of interest since my cakes seem dry where the pins are sprouting. Can i drip water in around them carefully with an eyedropper?

"There is a world beyond ours, a world that is far away, nearby, and invisible. And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."
