too many casings and too little shrooms
    #3183620 - 09/26/04 09:27 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

as i read up i want to post this:

1. Are there any good casing teks out there that include the use of buffers?

2. Does anyone 'check' there casing PH?

2b. If not, then are you just sticking to the 15-20% buffer to casing ratio?

phuck, 14 colonized jars, 4 shrooms qwon

Then I'm at a loss to find out how i'm introducing these contams because all but 1 casing out of 4 or 5 have been the coir/verm..- never a problem but after a week that it has been in the casing container.

Another question would be- I had this one with peat and verm. It grew like wild fire and poking through. I didn't patch it and there are at least 100 of the bigger pins - should i have patched?? - i ask this cause i noticed that the other day i was going to throw out a casing when, over the trash, the patch layer fell off and i noticed a few shrooms growing. The same thing happened the other time. I took it out of the fruiting chamber to cover the sides with aluminum foil. 2 days later, I checked for contams, and on the side there was growing a bunch of shrooms.....

I'm kindof getting it, but I'm missing a few things.

im just as confused as you are on that comment ricelicker.


--------------------
We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.
*note to any one reading my posts. any post pretaing to the cultivation of illegal psilocybe mushrooms are completely fictional. im a known pathological liar.

If you read the question above that I posted, then read down.....you'll see what I was referring too about 'contams'.  No harm, just contams.  :stoned:

Where your introducing contams no one knows..you just need to be very clean. Sterilize your casing mix in the PC, PC everything or wipe it down with alcohol when casing and do so in a sterile environment. Buffering is not your problem. Coir and verm work just fine:


Also if you spray, put a little h202 in the mix..just be cleaner..
