To dunk a casing or not, mycelium on stalks, and gas exchang
    #2990609 - 08/11/04 12:10 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I saw some green on my casing could not tell for sure if it was green or blue. So I cut it off and ate it. Rye grain, completly colinized. Did not think it would do anything, but I got off a little bit from it. Anyway, I noticed that my casing seems pretty dry, maybe that it why my shrooms have stopped growing.
Questions
1.) Should I soak my casing in water, "dunk" it. It seems rubberey and dry.
2.) There is some white mycelium going up the stalks of the shrooms is this a sign of over, or under watering.
3.) I have a air pump running through a jar of water with a fogger in it. The fogger is set on a timer, the air pump runs constantly. The jar is air tight with a cork. The air pump is hosed in to the jar, then to the terrium with the hoses taped at the bottom of the terrium. This provides some constant air and humitidty for 5 minities ever 3 hours. I also have holes drilled around the terrium so co2 can excape. I have a glass top on it, that I leave a small portion uncovered. Should I also install a fan on a timer, or does this sound like enough gas exchange.

Thanks for your responses in advance....

Yes, you should dunk it after a flush, make sure that it is drained well afterward though, maybe even try taking it out of the container after dunking. Are you serious when you said you cut off the chunk of green or blue and ate it, not knowing? If it was mold, it could have made you really sick, don't eat anything that even could be mold or green color, better to be safe than sorry...

Does the coco coir really make that much differnce. I am using peat a mix of peat,verm, perlit, and and this mossie stuff that holds water. Also some of these crystals that hold water.

yeah, for a casing layer, you should just use coir and verm or one of the two alone. I know using peat, you will have to adjust the ph and the perlite is not supposed to be used at all for that purpose.

I have used perlite in small quantity along with peat and vermiculite. Adjusting the pH is easy once you get a feel for things and test kits are usually 2 for a buck at wal-mart. If you don't want to dunk try injecting your casing with a syringe that used to have spores in it. You can add water where and when you need it. I find that injecting some spring water around my pins when they are about 1cm big makes them gain massive bulk and help them not to develop hollow stems. Don't over do it though, just give them as much water as you think they are "drinking", its a lot like watering a plant. I like it because I can give my pins water without spraying and avoid dunking which often seems to encourage cobweb mold -- which often turns green lol! Don't eat unidentified molds, that's bad juju.

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."
