Quick Casing ???
    #3625790 - 01/13/05 11:41 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

just a quick question. I recently cased 2 PF cakes with 50/50 verm/coco. My question is, do I need to take the top off the container for air exchange while it is incubating or will that just introduce the dreaded green to the mix?? Thanx again

Thanx for the quick answer.  I think I may have run into another problem though.  While looking thru the posts I noticed one that said that the subrate to casing layer should be about 4:1.  Well I think that I messed that up and did about a 1:2 ration of subtstrate to casing layer.  Is there anything that I can do to fix this, they have been incubating for about 3 days now and there is definite myc growth on the sides of the casing container. Should I just let it go and hope that it overcomes the hurdle?  This is my first grow ever and I think I just made my first mistake, oh well, live and learn I guess :frown:

what i like to do is mix the colonized jars with 50/ 50 coco-coir/vermiculite at a 3:1 ratio as in one pint of coir for every 3 pints of spawn. pH the coir/ verm to 7.0

i mix everything together, the 4 jars, get it nice and VERY level and even(this is important for an even pin set). then cover the the tray with aluminum foil for about 3 days or until about 95% of the of the surface of the casing is white w/ myc. after i cover them with foil i stick them in my fruiting chamber and keep the humidity up, fanning them 2-3 times a day.

after +/-95% of the casing is colonized ill case the casing with a thin layer of 50/50 coir/verm Ph'd to 7.0 with calcium carbonate(local brewery store). hydrated lime works good as a pH buffer but calcium carbonate lasts alot longer. *make sure your casing is nice even and level. you just need to cover the white up, like i said 1/4" to 1/2" per every two inches of substrate.

after you apply the casing layer stick the casing back into the fruiting chamber. a rubbermaid filled with casings will not need any extra humidification other than an occasional misting when the sides of the container look dry. lightly mist the casings daily until you see myc growing through.

sorry if this seems complicated i tried to make it simple. if you follow what i wrote youll get the art of casing down quick.
good luck.
