somewhat involved casing question
    #386347 - 09/05/01 02:23 PM (22 years, 3 months ago)

AFOAF had 4 colonized PF-style cakes, which were in a water bath @ 86 degrees for 1 week. They looked pretty dried out, so he dunked them in room temp water for 8-10 hours, broke them up into 1 inch pieces, and cased them into 2 plastic tuperware containers (the disposable kind).

Still w/ me? Okay. He then cased only the top w/ wet verm (which probably wasn't too wet in the first place), put the tuperware top back on, wrapped the sides w/ foil, and put them into the closet 4 days ago.

Today nothing is happening, and he' s wondering whether 1) they have enough moisture to keep growing, 2) did he do it right, 3) should he birth them into the terrarium or 4) should he try and rehydrate them or 5) should he leave them the fuck alone :)

Thanks in advance for good advice. Criticism will naturally be ignored.

Peace out

nothing I just said was true

OK, the dunking was unneeded as the casing supplies all the moisture needs. Have you holes in the lids? If not, stab some now. They may be suffocating. Check the casing, does it feel damp? I f so, you're OK. If not, you can mist it. Wait until you see mycelia on the casing layer before birthing. Lastly, slow down, casings don't always colonize on schedule.
