Birthed a straw/poo casing Orissa a week ago. No pins can be seen yet and I suspect slight overlay. Temps are roughly between 67 (night) and 74 (day). Its in my PMP together with some other casings and a few cakes.

Some parts of the myc on the surface turn a bit yellowish. Surface is not completely stuffed with myc but here and there it is pretty colonized. I think I fruited a little too late, was more focussed on the myc colonising the surface instead of a focus on a colonised casinglayer.

Unfortunately the digi is not available atm.... But I have pics from the day I birthed the casing:




Any advice? Patience? Patch the whole surface with a thin layer of casing material and incubate?

TIA,
MF

I removed my RH meter some time ago since all is fruiting fine, no dry (split) caps anymore. The mushrooms are my meters now... :wink:
It always gave something like 99%, I think it is lower though but somewhere in the 90-s.
Temps havent been a problem either, maybe that this specific strain wants higher temps but when I had it higher (between 70-80) the mushrooms fruited too fast it seemed.

BUT I think its the patience cause I just checked and some primordia have formed, I can see the brownish caps-to-be!! :thumbup:

If thats when you birthed the casing you waited WAY to long.

Once you case and cover and peak and it looks like this:


You cover the white spots LIGHTLY and mist it down well...then start fruiting it. The mycelium should be just below the surface of the casing layer and just peaking out. Some strains are fine if you fruit them like that, they pin easier then others, so you can have one experience with one strain and another with a seperate strain...cubies are not cubies after all :smile:

At this point its best just to wait it out usually.
Even heavy overlay:

dont do so bad:


Then add fresh casing mix after a nice dunk after the flush and scratch any parts lightly that are hard and solid looking. Try not to every scratch or cover primodia/pins.

Also on some strains, primordia wont be to noticable uner ariel mycelium. You won't see anything until they are pins and poking up sometimes.

hey scatmanrav, I see you have your casing out in the open, are you not too worried about contams jumping on your shit? I've been taking all steps possible, am I overkilling?

Thanks a lot for that reply.

That Orissa grew so extremely fast, I patched 2 times could have fruited it after first patch. But couldnt believe it was ready, already!
It colonised 100% in 4 days. In a couple of days the first myc peeped through the casing layer. I patched. Then the next day, I patched again.
Was in the wrong assumption that it had to be all white! :lol:

But what a grower that Orissa of mine. :laugh: From spawn to fruitready was actually 7-8 days!!

Read it here if you feel 4 it. I think I could have fruited it one or 2 days earlier.

You know what, I've found about pinning. The more agressive it grew the harder I had a time pinning it. My GT isolate was quick as all hell but it took forever to fruit. Thats the overlaid casings you see, I waiting until I did normally on other strains and those were some of the first problems I had with that..just kepts getting so fuzzy and rhizo looking..then started matting out and yellowing and just wouldnt pin. After some time it finally did..

Hmmm ..... SAME HERE! :lol:

Ill be making some prints of the mushrooms if it all works out well. Then Ill try to fruit it even sooner next time.

But im a busy man. I got a syringe with the strain: "Thai Elephant Dung". Do definately want to save that. Got 2 Equador syringes, a strain I want to try as well and dont want to let them wait to long now the ystill are viable.

AND last but not least an envelope of sporeprints from a very kind person here. I definately want to test dome of those quite soon. Not to forget some own syringes I made and wanna take to the test

Man o man, is there life after shrooming? :grin:

:thanx:

MF
