How many flushes from a casing?
    #3038727 - 08/23/04 08:53 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I have a couple of casings that are going on there 3rd flush. There are not as many mushrooms on the casing but the ones that are there are BIG. I am wondering how many flushes to expect (2" substrate) and if it is worth it to go beyond 3 flushes.

The first flush of each casing put out 390+ grams wet. The second flush put out just over 240 grams wet. I am wondering if it is worth the effort with the diminishing returns.

from what I hear 50% of what you can expect is in the first flush - the amount of flushes depends a lot on what you used for your casing, horse poo will give you more flushes than just casing with verm.

These are cow poo, The 3rd flush has only 12 or 13 mushrooms total but they are as big around as a sharpie and 2" tall. The caps have not even started to bulge. (The brown cap is still flush with the stem.) The casing is just coco-core and vermiculite.

I would say 4. After four your likly to have contaminants.

Without any info on your fruiting chamber(s) I would suggest just letting it go (contams may form, but that's when you know it's done)...however, if you have multiple casing or cakes in the same fruiting chamber, don't do this...the contaminates will spread.

Using H2O2 in your spray or bubbler will stop just about anything from growing...most contaminates come from the ouside world through spraying and your hands while you're picking. I've never seen a cake contaminate after it was birthed into a fruiting chamber where H2O2 was at work.

Ahh...the main point...just destroy the casing after it doesn't produce for a week (longer for some strains, they stay dormant awhile).

Casings will put out until they contam or nutes are used up, I myself average 6-8 flushes when using rye or WBS. keep them going as long as you can! GL
