Casing becoming separated from the container
    #2978618 - 08/08/04 05:04 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Why does that happen?
Another question, after my first flush the pins are becomin less and are maturing while they dont reach an inch!!!
I dont know if its because I spray water too close (dont think so cause they dont abort, they just open their caps) or because of oxygen lack (sometimes i get too lazy but when I left my pins for 4 days without care I still got decent sized mushrooms).

Should I dunk it or give it more water? I have one casing thats doin fine in the humidity thing but the other one isnt doing that fine. I also am worried about the casing not being a whole unit that could be manipulated to be dunked. PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS ISSUES!!!

PS: I have nboticed some green mold on some shrooms and got rid of that but according to my experience this mold never gets the chance to colonize because mycelium doesnt let it, it just stays in little spots.

Yes, you should go ahead and dunk. Your casing becomes dehydrated after flushing, hence it shrinking away from the sides and the poor flushing afterwards. You can just dunk the whole casing at once. If you have holes in the bottom of your casing container it'll drain fine that way.

newfoundfreedom is right. The casing shrinks because the mycelium is using up the nutrients and water in the substrate. Dunk it or flip and re-case if needed.
