Misting
    #3918039 - 03/14/05 10:46 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

How bad is a lite mist when there is exposed mycelium? I fan 5-8 times a day and mist once or twice, I don't want my casings to dry out.

yea I've read that before, but it's kind of dismisive on how bad it is for the mycelium... it's says it's not that crucial. But then it also says to do a real fine mist after fanning.  :confused:

Yeah, real fine mist is the idea. Moisture doesn't seem to harm mycelium with direct contact as long as giant globs aren't sitting on the surface. Fine mist, spray from a distance, and don't soak the casing layer. You'll get the hang of it.

YEA!! I just checked and I noticed a bunch of pins on the surface! Well... I guess the misting is ok for now then... but if need be, does misting effect the pins the same as it doe the mycelium or are pins more sensitive?

Mist very lightly, very fine, an from as far from the casing/cake as you can be while still hitting it. Watch misting during pin formation and only mist if needed or a light mist over the casing when you fan if it seems just a little dry.

Yea I'm not really bothering with the misting. You guys helped A LOT THO! I would have sprayed those things every morning! Thanks... but they're growing bigger every day without misting... I think they'll be fine  :wink:
