Mycobag casing question
    #3952037 - 03/22/05 02:26 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

So from start to end, how does this procedure look?

1. inoculate mycobag according to directions
2. Put in incubator until fully colonized

3. In aluminum foil tray (or similar) lay down 1/2" of

vermiculite (slightly moist?)
4. Break up fully colonized mycobag
5. Spread broken up substrate on said vermiculite
6. Lay down 1/2" - 3/4" of casing mix on top
7. Cover, then put in terranium after 1-2 days
8. Enjoy

Was planning to use an airpump/bubblewand/geolite. Build

some sort of apparatus to keep tray off geolite (or is

this not necessary?)

All sounds good to me...don't need anything to put a casing on because it's a container, although aluminum trays may rust.

You mean PmP? (poor man's pod)
It's a fruiting chamber :thumbup:

Sounds about right...when you say put in FC 1-2 days,....theres a bit more to it.,..you need to incubate for those 2 days and watch to see how the myc. pokes through, you want it to come up everywhere at once, if it doesnt then you need to patch where its lagging behind (patch with moist verm.) and incubate again and hope its evenly breaking surface...then put it in the FC...and just in case , id read up a bit on overlay and other things to do with casings...it'll help you further develop your knowledge, so that you dont almost fuck something up that would have fixed w/ a lil reading, but good lukc to ya :thumbup: :cheers:

Gnostic: shouldnt one patch where the mycelium is racing ahead (poking through casing layer), not falling behind?

this is my signature.

Aluminum doesn't rust.
