How much water?
    #347575 - 06/23/01 09:05 PM (17 years, 3 months ago)

I just cold-shocked and opened up my first two cubensis casings last night, and hope to harvest my first shroom this coming week or two :-)
The only problem is, I really don't know how much water to give my casings, particularly the plain verm casing since it's very hard to tell how wet it is just by looking at it -- when I mist the surface the water is drawn right down into the mycelium layer, and I have no idea how much water there is down there. Also, should I be leaving my containers open to the air (as I am now) or should I only open the containers a couple of times a day to give the mycelium some fresh air and a little more water...

Thanks,

WW

Use the 50/50+ casing instead, then you will be able to tell the wetness.

One of them is a 50/50 casing, but I put verm on top to help keep out contams. So are my casings just screwed, or should I leave the containers closed from now on so they aren't losing water?

Keep them closed, open 2-3 times a day and fan the air out.
