dunking casings?
    #3297798 - 10/30/04 04:47 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hey there guys, I'm on my second flush on 4 casings. I haven't done anything since the first one, and obviously this flush is much smaller. I'm pretty much just waiting for them to mature, harvest and then try to re-hydrate the casings. My question is what the best way to do that is to keep getting good flushes? Should I just spray the vermiculite down with water? Someone mentioned before that I could dunk them, but how do you dunk casings? They are cased in straight verm, and I can't really think of how you would dunk that? Just stick the whole casing in a tub of water or something? Seems like that would drown the vermiculite, if it even stayed in the casing. Any help would be extremely appreciated. Thanks!

Give them a heavy mist.

Keeping casings properly hydrated throughout the cropping stage helps considerably. I've went 7-8 flushes without ever dunking, shrinking of the casing of course is only natural keeping it to a minimum is what we as growers strive for, filling in the side gaps with optimally saturated casing mix will also go along way in keeping flushes as strong as they can be. Optimal grows will flush sooner and more consistantly so keep that in mind :wink: GL

As long as the mist is very fine and the air exchange is optimal, yea, you can mist directly whilst shrooms are growing.
