Mushroom Kit Casing/Fruiting Question
    #3267903 - 10/23/04 03:19 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hello fellow myco-lovers! Recently I have taken my love of mushrooms to the next level and decided to buy a kit off the net. I live in Canada so I bought a kit from BC that contained Mycelium SPAWN as opposed to spores. It's been awesome so far, and everything is going well. I am almost past the pasteurization/spawning stage, my substrate has been chilling for a good 10 days, and white with mycel-networks. On monday I will begin casing, putting the soil over the spawning substrate, and hopefully in about two weeks I'll have a great flush of fresh mush!

My question is regarding the casing and fruiting process. I am a little worried about contamination. Once the casing begins, my kit is basically just in a tupperware container in a dark closet. It's not that the area isn't sterile, but its 'not not' sterile if you know what I mean. I'm only going to be taking the top off to spray the soil with water to keep it moist everyday. How susceptable are the mushrooms to mold? I know if green mold appears, I should cover the mouldy area with salt. Is this really that effective against mold? Is there anything else I can do to prepare or prevent this from happening? I've posted some pictures of 10 days ago and present day. Let me know, Thanks!
