Casing time...
    #3213871 - 10/04/04 03:11 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Actually fruiting time. My cat just fruited his first casing, and i wish i could take a picture, because it looks good. Poking through in many places already after 2 days. He just put it in his terrerium with some fresh new perlite and water. He's crossing my fingers that everything goes well. Should he be spraying this badboy any? He says he's got some more than 10:1 h202:water mix in his sprayer for his cakes, but should he even bother or just fan it.


God i love this stuff, and so does my cat.

Yeah it won't hurt.  You can tell by looking at the surface of the casing if it needs misted.  If you had good initial moisture in the mix and have high RH in your terrarium you probably won't need to mist a whole lot.  But yes, I always mist my casings.  BTW, you meant 10:1 water:h202 right?  Give 3 or 4 good fannings a day too.  Remember the more you fan the more your casing will dry out also.  :goodluck:

Yes, it will hurt it. What are you talking about? h2o2 causes aborts when sprayed on fruits.

If you are going to mist, you lightly mist, and with pure, sterile h2o.

I agree also h2o2 does retard slighty and is not necessary as "clean" water will work just fine and is healthier for your babies too! GL :wink:

Ohhh nono, sorry, i didn't mean spray it when it's fruiting. I just took it out of the terrerium today, so it doesn't even have hypals yet. I was planning to stop spraying the casing directly when i see knots, i just wanted to know if more moisture would be needed. And yeah, i meant I have a lot of 10:1 stuff, i worded it funny.

Thanks guys! I'll cut back on the H202 and keep up the fanning.

Yes, mist before it starts pinning. Helps with water content.

BTW guys, i figured he'd just mistyped when he wrote 10:1 h202:water ratio and had it reversed. And also i don't usually mist at all during or after primordia formation unless it really needs and even then i try to spray around the fruits.
