is there such thing as too much?
    #3276282 - 10/25/04 07:32 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

a quick question about moisture. i know you need to keep your casing and cakes a moist and wet as possible. i noticed that 1 of my casing has shrunk from the sides of the container so i sprayed the top with water and rubbing alcohol (should i use peroxide instead) and the cake seemed to fill back out. problem is that now i can see water sitting on the bottom of my container and the casing is just sitting in it. will this prove to be a problem like i suspect?

you don't know because you're only suppose to make your casings glissen. you dont want them wet as possible. You want no water droplets on your casings. Once mycelium gets to the surface you do not want to continue misting because they have enough moisture.

Cakes will pull from the sides a little bit, you can patch that with casing material. You use should H2O2 water solution mixed 1:1 not alcohol. You probablly have water in the bottom from overwatering. It can give you problems. There is tons of molds that love stagnet water.

agree, say no to drugs and alcohol.  Wait..  strike that.  just alcohol.

but 1:1 peroxide?  seems excessive.  1:10 would be more friendly :wink:

Next time, don't worry about casing pulling off the container until after the flush.  That's time to fix(I want to say patch, but I don't want you to get confused with patching) things up.
