casing gone retarded
    #3732136 - 02/04/05 09:30 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

a foaf had small trays of PF cakes cased in 50/50, harvested 1st flush like 3 weeks ago and put back into fruiting chamber, but now it doesnt seems like it wants to pin or flush anymore, it's just taking over the casing layer for the past 3 weeks, what goin on here? should she cold shock these casings?

Thanks

Did this foaf maintain a 12/12 lighting schedule, replace lost moisture by misting, and keep up constant misting to initiate 2nd flush?

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

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.

Could be the cause, yes. If the coolmist + ultrasonic aren't laying enough moisture on the casing layer, it can result in 2nd flush problems.

Was manual misting done pre-1st flush? Or was that just coolmist/sonic? Just trying to get more information here.

hmm.. there was ZERO misting done.. haha it was jus the coolmist and ultrasonic

The casing layer was PCed and cased crumbled cakes afterwards, 1st flush was picked and the casing layer was lightly sprayed with some h2o2 water (1/10) and thrown back into fuiting chamber.. would you like some pics?

Sure, post a pic of the casing if you want. What are temps and have they remained the same also?

Temps are a constant 75F, a diff of 1F up/down.





hopefully these pics will clear some up.

Good pics. Ok, my only guess at this point has something to do with the casings themselves and the big gap between the casing containers. That 1/4" or 1/2" or so of space between the casings, and edge of the container they sit in, could be why you're not getting pins.

Consider packing some wet verm around the edges? That's the best I can do, everything else looks good.

Maybe another set of eyes here will see something I don't.

I think i might suggest to her to shock the casings for a couple of hours.

Personally, I wouldn't shock it. Cold shocking can work ok for 1st flush, but just slows everything down drastically after that. Several more days of delayed action isn't what you want at this point.

Verm doesn't need to be sterilized, just wet it and throw it in.

No problem, like I said hopefully someone else will think of something I didn't.

Keep us posted.

Just let them go. Dont mist either. You may in fact have to high of humidity. Your getting almost overlaid conditions. You should have pins soon but I would remove the perlite and just use the two humidifiers for humidity.

Also, dont cold shock..won't do you any good at this point.

Sprinkling verm (sterilized) in the sides would be good. It has nothing to do with the casing not pinning, but its good to soak up and hold in moisture when the casing shrinks.
