Is this O.K. or Overlay?
    #3803217 - 02/19/05 02:31 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I've had a feww successes with casings so I thought I'd try this one. It has 7 1\2 pint jars crumbled into it and it showed its first pins a couple of days ago. From what I remember, the pins developed much more quickly on a smaller casing. Do I have some problem with this casing or should I just be patient? I have not been misting but the casing container is in a perlite bottomed fruiting chamber. Some of the pins are white instead of brown.

Your casings look fine.  :thumbup: Don't be stingy with the misting; mushrooms love water. The casing should be kept at near saturation.

As a rule I mist with straight water because I've had problems misting with peroxide solutions.

Whoa, whoa -- don't use tap water man. Only distilled, spring, etc - bottled stuff. Its only 42cents a jug at wal-mart. You don't need the peroxide either, too easy to mess up and not neccessary.

"There is a world beyond ours, a world that is far away, nearby, and invisible. And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

I'd use distilled water from the grocery store...comes in a gallon container.

Tap water can have chemicals in it.
If you do use tap water...put it in a container and wait 24 hours before using it.

You can always pressure cook to make sterile water if you are anal.
Sometimes being anal helps you succeed.

good luck

Water straight from the tap is all I ever use for cultivation purposes.

I only use distilled water (clean) myself and is what I recommend because everyones tapwater is different (fact). Also peroxide water retards myc slighty and hampers pinning big time! FYI

Thanks Hypae.
