About to do my casing, doing a double check...
    #3931009 - 03/17/05 05:05 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I have 1/2 pint PES Amaz. Jars. I'm about to do my casing in a day and I want to make sure I have everything down and ready!

1) Add 1/2" of verm to the bottom spray a little
2) Add the substrate doing 2 jars per casing, (1 pint a case).
3) lay down 1/4"-1/2" wet verm for the casing layer
4) Cover container and put into incubator Temps: 80-85F humidity: 95%+

This is where I hope I'm right:

5) Let myc. come up from the valleys patch a little, drop temp to 75-80 (think that right). Keep the humidity the same. start 12/12 light
6) wait for a while so pinning begins
7) Once pinnings begin drop humidity to: 75%-80%


So far so good? I'm a little paranoid doing this, I wanna make sure I don't fuck up cuz I'd like some mushies!

Any Advice, suggestion, help welcomed!

Yer good, bro.
Casing straight verm the first time will give you a feel of how it works.
And time to get learnt up on coco casing.
Also, I always throw the verm. in the micro for 5 mins. and spray with h2o2 solution, just to be safe.
I've always mic'd the casing and never had a prob :thumbup:

o, I steam sterlized it... So it all sounds good, when I patch, should it be very thin and light?

alll sounds good
but if you are going to case you should use a 50/50+ tek it works alot better than just verm .... look it up in the cultivation guides.

Casings = 90%-95% Rh
Cakes need 95+ b/c they have no casing layer to supply them w/ water :smirk:

really? I was told once you start out with casings have it around 95%+...

Should I have it 90%-95 the hole time?

O yeah, that's right. It goes into some depth, about the delivery of moisture to the myc.
Where on a plain surface, the rH would act, and on a casing the layer acts to deliver moisture. :thumbup:
