Casing help??
    #4014339 - 04/04/05 10:10 PM (13 years, 20 days ago)

Ok I put together my casing today and Im getting a little worried about it. Im using 50/50 peat moss and I started out placing in about 1/2 inch dry vermiculite at the bottom. I then sprayed it with 10% h2o2 water until nice and damped. I crumbled up 2 cakes and put them evenly over the vermiculite. My concern is after I pc'd the casing mix I let it sit for an hour to cool off and when I pored the casing mix on top of the mycelium the center of the mix was warm. It wasnt necessarily hot but pretty warm. Do you think that damaged my casing? Also I used my hands alot to spread the casing mix evenly. I washed them with soap though. Everything seem ok?

there's always a risk but just give it time, I'm sure it'll turn out just fine

It has been said mycelium can die at about 106 degrees. However, I recently did the same thing (warm casing about 30 minutes outta the PC) and I already have mycelium overtaking the layer (It's been one day)

Give me silence, water, hope;
Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes...
