Bulk tray coverings

What do you prefer to use while the spawn is colonizing?

Aluminum foil w/holes?

or

Plastic wrap w/holes?

or

the original lid w/holes?

I just want to hear what you use and why. (no its not an essay :tongue:. More like a survey)

Cling wrap. :thumbup: :wink: :mushroom2:

If you can find the type shipping places use to wrap boxes on pallets. Best there is. Tough, wide, big rolls & sticks togather like super glue. Roll costs about $20 & will last lifetime

Wrap tight, to allow GAS exchange.......poke needle holes (stuff with polyfil - if you want). Or, cut slit & cover slit with 3M Micropore tape ( = NextCare medical tape @ most drug stores - bandage area).

Then -IF- incubation chamber is not 100% totaly dark (like tomb).

Slightlty twist, crinkle tin foil (allows some gas exchange)& cover cling wrap loose enough to allow gas exchange & tight enough to KEEP OUT LIGHT.

Spawn Run:
Relative Humidity: 90%.
Substrate Temperature: 84?F - 86?F.
Thermal death limits have been established at 106?F.
Duration: 10-14 days.
CO2: 5000 - 10,000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.
Light: Incubation in total darkness.

Type of Casing:
After fully run, cover with the standard casing.
The casing should be balanced to an initial pH of 6.8 - 7.2.

Post Casing/Prepinning:
Relative Humidity: 90 %. Substrate Temperature: 84 - 86?F.
Duration of Case Run: 5-10 days.
CO2: 5000-10,000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.
Light: Incubation in total darkness.

Primordia Formation:
Relative Humidity: 95-100%.
Air Temperature: 74-78 ?F.
Duration: 6-10 days.
CO2: less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 -3 per hour.
Light: Diffuse natural or exposure for 12-16 hours/day

Cropping:
Relative Humidity: 85-92%. (For cakes: 95-100% )
Air Temperature: 74-78 ?F.
CO2 : less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 -3 per hour.
Flushing Pattern: Every 5-8 days.
Harvest Stage: When the cap becomes convex and soon after the partial veil ruptures.
Light: Indirect natural or same as above.

EDIT.......>>>>>>the original lid w/holes?<<<<<<<<<

Spaced ^^above^^ off (bong hit 4) & my foaf uses TRAYS.

If container has a TIGHT lid..... just use it w/holes & polyfil.

Well, it seems people use cling/saran wrap instead of just al. foil.

I've been using just al. foil and have noticed the substrates drying out and also one fruiting (I think from getting too much fresh air).

I got a roll of this stuff sitting in the closet. Got it from office depot. Was going to use it for "tucking in" straw in trays, but it kept sticking together. I knew I would need it for SOMETHING :tongue: glad I saved it.

I found some cheapo plastic tablecloths at Albertsons for 1$. Cut to size, tape to container and melt holes with a hot nail. It works pretty well but melting the holes gets a bit tedious.

Do you usually have to use one sheet or two?

I have to use two sheets (trays big) and it leaves a gap inbetween sheets. (where they overlap eachother)

I've had 3 trays start trying to fruit during incubation, and I believe the cause to be these gaps allowing too much fresh air. The trays are only 75-80% colonized when this happens.

Eh...I could've taped the sheets together to close gap.

Right on. LOL, like nesting two semi-clear trays w/tin foil between them, so light doesnt hit side/bottom of caseing. It was a year into this hobby, before that light came on. :rolleyes:

you guys think i'll have any probs. being four days into my incubation of my poo/straw casings?

for four days they had foil over top, 2 pieces cause the bin was to big, but no holes, just the small gap

sounds like i need to throw a third piece over to keep that gap closed
