    #3458791 - 12/07/04 10:09 AM (12 years, 2 days ago)

I have a 2 quart casing of popcorn that I cannot get to pin. It is cased with vermcullite and pete moss. It is completly colinized and has been in my fruiting chamber for about 3 weeks.

Last night I pasturized some straw. I am wanting to break this casing up and use it as a spawn. Will this work.

Yea, but mist the whole thing with 10% peroxide/water solution before breaking up and spawning. I wouldent spawn to straight straw. I broke up a casing and respawned after 1st flush 7 times with the same damn casing.

I saw a guy do that on here recently with a cake that just wouldn't pin. He ended up with mushrooms growing INSIDE of his casing.

3 weeks in the fruiting chamber? what are your temps/humidity/fresh air exchange/light schedule?

Temp is 79-80, light cycle is about 12 on 12 off. I have a ultrasonic fogger on ever three hours. 5 minites then 10 minites. I fan about 2 times a day. I got pins on one end of one off the 3 casings. I took the casing out of its tin foil tray, and sprayed the casings top surface real well. The pins stopped growing. I think I over sprayed. Anyway I hope that using one off the three will produce something.

A) Sounds like you're too wet there buddy. Back it off with the spraying and fogging a bit. The casing layer should be moist, but not saturated.

B)You'd do better with more fresh air exchange.

C) Drop the temps a bit my man... they're kind of high.
