Holes in casing containers
    #3974815 - 03/27/05 02:04 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Afof is making some casings tonite (all 9 of them), and he really sort of needs to know something within the hour.

So, he's using foil baking pans for the containers, and he needs to know if he should put holes in the bottom or not. Ive read about it being good for draining, but since he said he isnt going to be dunking the casings or anything of that sort...is it necessary to put holes in the bottom?

thanks in advance

I always have, there's no harm in taking 2 extra minutes to stick a few holes just so you can rest assured no water is sitting in the bottom.

  Wish your FOAF good luck! :smile:

I always had the understanding that the whole point of the casing layers was to HOLD WATER IN... I mean, I don't know how some drainage would effect everything, but it kinda goes against the whole casing theory, doesn't it?

wouldn't it be fine as long as long as you had a casing layer of perlite underneath the myc and made sure it and the water were clean before using it?

I never poke holes in the bottom of the aluminum bread pans. My reasoning is to keep the CO2 levels high during colonization. If you have holes in the bottom, you lose that. Additionally, the air exchange on the bottom will lead to pinning down there, especially if light also can get in. The answer is to maintain proper moisture content. If your substrate is at the proper level, and you don't over water, there is no need for holes.

roger that

come to think of it, being that i ( i mean, uh he) doesnt have that black fiberous material that they line gardens with to place at the bottom of the trays, we arent going to do make holes...pinning down there sounds like a baad thing.
ill just be careful with the watering.
