keeping a casing moist..
    #3163184 - 09/22/04 02:18 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

what if you had a casing which, during the stage of primordia formation, seemed to dry out a bit (at least at first glance to the casing layer)?

most certainly the cause could be a possible lack of high humidity.. but is there any way to hydrate a casing like that without delaying pinning?

misting is fine just try to keep your mist as fine as possible
or you can put water inside a sterile syringe and drip water onto the casing
think about it, they survive rain in the wild
these mushrooms are hardy

Yup. Just mist it. Misting has never caused me any problems.

What do you guys think about using an ultrasonic to mist the casing? Is the mist thick enough to saturage the casing? Or do you believe a spray bottle would work. How can you get a super fine mist?

Tip: when misting don't do it all at once build that moisture content back up over a period of several misting over a couple of days, this is a much more myc friendly way.  :wink:
Another tip: get yourself a pumpup type sprayer ($7) they out out perform hand squeeze types 10:1 with the added advantage of a much finer mist when adjusted right! Like a heavy fog! You'll never be sorry ya got one!!!

no, they're hand pumped I beleve, usually used for fertilizers or insecticides. Like the ones at the top of this web page: http://homeharvest.com/waterspray.htm
