My latest casing - money or contam?
    #3618125 - 01/12/05 03:19 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hey all. This is my latest casing. I started with a mixed grain substrate (syringe innoc), G2G to a few pounds of High Mountain Compost. Cased with HMC in Glove Box (I know I know...don't case with nutrient rich materials...but come on I am having so much fun with new ideas). The bag of HMC that was used had been punctured upon arrival, but immediately alcohol swabbed and sealed until use (stored in fridge).

Anyhow, things look sort of dull gray instead of fluffy white. I couldn't tell if this was due to my dark substrate (instead of lighter toned vermiculite) or if this was some kind of contam.

I have two different casings to show you (both from the same bag)...a shot and a close up of each. Notice the pins that have developed in the first 48 hours...which reminds me, these casings are only 2 days old.
Casing 1:

Up close:


Casing 2:

Uhh...sorta close:


So whats the word?

Are these baby's healthy, or ...otherwise?

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.

Well, I cold shocked one for about a half hour to freeze up some water, then lightly misted with 50/50 h2o2 to try and get a feel for any hard to see strands of mold...here is the result..it looked far better after the freezer :smile:

It looks like cobweb to me also. You could try misting with a h20/h202 solution. Good Luck.
