how to care for casings that are colonizing
    #3973876 - 03/26/05 09:45 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm doing my first casings, i have 5 caings with 5 1/2 pint cakes in each, bottom layer verm, casing layer 50/50 verm and peat moss. there on day 5. some mycellium is poking through. i have them in aluminnum trays, and i had them sovered with plastic wrap until today, i moved them to 12qt rubbermaid containers. should i keep them humid? fan them? right now there at about 85?. i'm not sure how to care for them until there ready to pin.

you want to initiate pinning NOW. begin the light cycle (12/12), begin fanning them 4-8 times a day, drop the temperature to the 70's, 80's is way too hot. 74 is great! Also, you'll want to boost humidity with whatever tek you're using. Mist everytime you fan until you see pins. Don't spray the casings directly, mist straight out and let the mist fall on the casings. The object here is to get the casing mix very damp, not wet, over a good number of mistings.

Sprinkle a light covering of casing mix over the breakthroughs and soak them casings down through several light mistings to "near saturation". Induce fruiting ASAP
