bulk straw and no casing layer
    #3193903 - 09/29/04 02:04 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

what would happen if you birthed a tub of colonized straw without a casing layer? The reason I ask is cause my partner is pissed that we lost all (4) of our small casings to green mold and cobweb. We had made a mistake for the first week - 1.5 weeks after putting the casing layer on (sealing it with no air circulation) After taking the lids off and using tin foil to cover them, contamination became present and rapidly spread...

so the straw tub is the final straw!

what would be so bad if we just left the mycelium brick of straw in the tub to fruit without a casing layer?

I don't remember ever seeing a cased straw grow.

Clothes baskets under humidity tents work great.

I've seen plenty with and without and when done right there is not a real big difference in yields although they say whenever casings are optional they most always produce higher yields when used and IME I have no choice but to totally agree. I suggest next time covering your properly pasturized (not sterilized) casing for only 3-4 days then initiate pinning. GL on this one! Baby Hitler have you ever checked out The Mushroom Cultivator? There is an awesome pic of a cased pasturized wheat straw grow! :wink:

Also works well for oyster mushrooms:

Sraw also seems to respond well to dunking before first fruit, and between fruitings.
