Casing Transplant - URGENT Please Help!
    #350418 - 06/27/01 11:55 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I currently have 2 casings going....

The first one just finished its first flush yesterday....the other should pin for the first time in about 2 days.
---
Here's my theory on this....please anyone tell me if they disagree and why.

By moving both casings to a new, larger container.. I would thus increase the surface area of the casing. I ASSUME this would result in larger flushes and more of a mushroom yield. (overall quantity NOT size of each shroom)

I am unsure how to go about doing a transplant like this. Whether I should remove the top casing layer before transplanting them and using a new, fresh casing. Or even when to perform the transplant.

Any suggestions pertaining to this subject would be greatly appreciated! If anyone has tried something like this in the past, please be detailed in the procedure you used to do it. I have experience growing many times but never tried something like this. I want to make sure I get it right the first time.

Thanks!

Man!!!! Leave that fully established, fruiting, happy-go-lucky, mycelium inside that casing alone to do its thing...
Why disturb it now?
If you want larger casings then case more colonized substrate over a larger area next time...
Let this one live out its life-cycle in peace...

Live in peace with it....

Patience my young grasshopper....

Thanks, I'll keep your suggestion in mind as I make my decision..

I would have liked to case more substrate over a larger area..unfortunately half the jars were not completely colonized by the time I had to remove the other half. So I feel I was forced into casing them in 2 different containers. Any suggestions on how to keep this from happening in the future?

Also..please continue to comment on the original topic, I am very interested. Thanks!

just let them go and do a new batch with more substrate. You will most likely run into contams if you try to do this. If you absolutly must do this experiment I would wait till their are done putting out their flushes(or until they get really small flushes), then remove the top casing layer, take your substrate and break it up into your new larger container, then recase. It is a good experiment, but the increase in yield you might get probably isn't worth the risk of ruining your whole project.
