remove casing from fruiting chamber?
    #3008421 - 08/16/04 11:15 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have kept a casing in my fruiting chamber (which uses a vicks cool mist) and it is starting to pin. I just read how it is perhaps too humid using both the humidifier along with the damp vermiculite in the casing. I am thinking it would be wise to keep the casing in the chamber half the time, and out the other half. I say this because its starting to pin quite nicely and evenly, so I dont think its way too humid for it, but I want to be safe. Sound reasonable? Also, when I do take it out, do I just keep it in the open air? I dont think I can cover it over with plastic wrap because the shrooms will soon be too tall and poking at the lid.

well the only thing there is the chance of contamination? You could try just to lower the humidity in the chamber. do you have a reading for your humidity in there?

I dont have a reading in there, but I am guessing the humidity is pretty freakin high. The walls are consistently misted heavily (not by me with a mister, the humidifier keeps the walls consistently wet.) All the cakes, and the casing cakes,were also dunked for a good 20 hours before birth too.

The casing is the result of a screw up. 4 PF cakes dried out a bit too much while I was away, so I redunked and cased them, just in some tupperware and with verm. I have 12 other cakes sitting in the fruitng chamber doing fine, so I'd rather keep the humidity high and take care of those than to favor this casing.

Can I just put it out in open air as long as I patch the open spots of Myc on the casing with some verm to prevent contams?

Thanks for the help everyone. I imagine simple first timer questions get annoying after awhile, but once you see tiny one inch shrooms growing, its becomes imperative in your head: "Do NOT fuck it up at this point!"

I always hear this stuff and laugh. I never lower the humidity for casings lower then 95% no matter what stage they are at.

Leave it in there :wink: actually coolmists provide more fresh air than RH so the perlite helps keep the humidity closer to 92+% which is what you want! I've seen coolmists actually lower the RH when running 24/7 but when combined with misting or a fogger all that FAE (fresh air exchange) makes for some kickass flushes!!! Tip: you will want that casing at "near saturation" prior to pinning this allows the pins the moisture needed to pin prolifically without a need to mist during the pinsetting stage.
