casing questions:
    #346517 - 06/22/01 08:20 AM (15 years, 10 months ago)

A couple:

1. Can you reuse the vermiculite off an old casing if you sterilise it, and then use it on a new one?

2. AF is going on holiday for a week and has the following. One fully colonised cake, a casing that has had one flush, and a casing that has had no flushes but the mycelium is beginning to show through the top layer and should probably be opened to air and light soon. What are the best options for each of these 3 things to keep everything in working order. Was thinking cake in the fridge then case it when AF gets back, leave the fruiting casings and hope they fruit only slightly over the 7 days.

Hire a babysitter. You have 3 cakes at different stages, you can't just leave them for a week unattended. If you want good results, someone has to be there to mist and fan and watch for contams.
The fridge is a very dry place. If you left a cake in there for a week it would dry out. Your other cake, the one that has grown through the casing, it needs fresh air exchanges and proper humidity levels.

I think you should cancel your holidays!

no chance of a babysitter. The cake is still in its jar so AF could cover up the holes and put in fridge. Is there anyhting that will slow down the fruiting process - like maybe covering all the cased cakes with saran wrap and putting those in the fridge as well?

Dear Captain, what makes you think that?

fridge is a dry place....

well if there is humidity in the air, and something cold is placed in (or around the air as the case with a fridge) it tends to condense and no longer be in the air......

and if its AF who is going on vacation...why dont you baby sit...ha ha ha ha?

saran wrap will cut off air exchange and you will come back to a saran wrapped green blob. if you dont belive me, try it and find out.

my recommendation is to get AFOAF to poke his/her head in on AFs project and pick the fruits when its time, and do nothing else.

I know when my cat was growing and she had to leave town for a week o go to mardi gras, my cats girlfriend checked up on his fruits.

and when my cat goes to london next month, i know that she (now an ex) will be checking on my cats project.

peace, ar393 and crew

We are talking in terms of relative humidity in the air, not absolute.
I know that there is a temperature dependance of the water partial pressure in the air-waterwapor mix("cold air can hold less water") but that?s not of importance.
The relative humidity(and this ?s what?s all about) is still very high in the fridge. Put a hygrometer in there and see for yourself.

Why dont you just kiddnap a bunch of monkeys from the forest and train them to take care of your shrooms. Works for ME!
