help save a casing!
    #349236 - 06/26/01 09:21 AM (22 years, 5 months ago)

If thermal levels in a casing get too high, will colonization sieze?
A casing my friend is trying to colonize has been in it's chamber for a week and nothing is happening. She has been misting, but the casing layer still seems a little dry. I think it's all because of her temp. being too high. Atmosphere temp was fine, but the foil pan sat directly on a heat pad. The changes lowered the inside casing temp back to 84 F.

Will the temp drop initiate fruiting?
Would it be a good idea to do a sterile scratch and add moist 50/50 compost?

Lower the temp for starters. If the casing is dried, brush it off and add a new casing.

Heating pads belong on top of the terrarium or incubator.

I think you're a little confused. When you say chamber, do you mean incubator or fruiting chamber? 84 degrees is an ideal temp for when you are waiting for your casing layer to be colonized. This should be kept in the dark though, probably covered with aluminum foil. Then when the casing layer is colonized, removed the foil, make sure that the ambient temp will cause at least a 10 degree drop, get lots of FAE and put into a humidty chamber.
