Casing question
    #3148217 - 09/17/04 02:28 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Is it important to keep a casing in it's container? Couldn't you just let it colonize like usual, patch, and when it's ready for the terrarium remove it from the container and let it sit like a huge pf jar or would that affect yield?

It's been done before. Why would you want to take it out?

Could grow shrooms from the side and top... instead of the side of the container blocking stuff from growing off the sides. Just seemed like it would give a slightly better yield.

Well the whole point of casings is that they give a greater yield than cakes because of a larger, more even pinset (hypothetically).

With cakes you just get mushrooms growing on all sides but with no real pinset.

So leave your casing a casing and enjoy.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

Also as MycoCat was saying, wouldn't it be more beneficial to keep the case on it to hold in all the nutrients and what not for later flushes, rather than burn it out on the first flush without the case?

IMO you would get more mushrooms this way (as opposed to the removal of the case) accompanied with a dunk and recase on the second/third/fourth/etc flushes.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Plus free air=less humidity. I'd leave them as is.

Agreed.

It mar or may not decrease your yeild, but it definitely won't increase it (taking it out of the tray)
