Re: deep scratching & cold shocking...does it work?

Thanks...I will definitely be patient and let nature take its course without interference. I just put some more casing on the patches that were poking through and put the saran wrap back on and put them back in the terrarium. Question...when do I take the saran wrap off? I have a perlite terrarium but do I mist daily after the saran wrap is off...or should I be misting even before then? I have an aquarium pump providing the fanning...do I need to fan them by hand as well. Thanks, I really appreciate the advice.

I have a friend that got cooked and forgot a nursery tray in the freezer he was 'cold shocking' for a few hours Do not start to cold shock and then decide to smoke some mota. Next time I swing by i'll tell you if the tray survives.

At times one remains faithful to a cause only because its opponents do not cease to be insipid.

Remove the saran wrap after you see mycelium poking through the surface again. You may want to wait until the casing is roughly 20% colonized but it isn't completely necessary.

You can mist as much as you like after you remove the saran wrap but don't overdo it. I've seen waterlogged casings supress growth before.

An aquarium pump may displace co2 but in my opinion, it doesn't provide enough air movement. I still recommend fanning at least once a day to be on the safe side but I've never used an aquarium pump and cannot give you completely accurate information on its efficiency.
