Casing
    #4038772 - 04/10/05 11:03 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

How easily do casings contaminate, since the jars are already colonized so as to be able to fight off contaminants?
And how long should I keep it in the incubator before I fruit it? Around 20% colonized?

im not sure how easy they contaminate but an ultimately the fate of casings is contamination possibly before, during or after the first flush

Casings are generally very resistant to contamination. I have left casings out without a lid when I felt they were not going to fruit without constant exposure to fresh air (fudge fanning). The norm is that contamination will only set in after several flushes (4-6). However, if your humidity is too high, if you mist too much, or if your pH is way off you are putting your holy culture in a weakened state and the enemy can move in. It should be noted that cakes tend to get contaminated much easier than casings do since the casing acts and a non-nutritional barrier to the substrate below. I hope this helps.

"There is a world beyond ours, a world that is far away, nearby, and invisible. And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

My experience has been that 1/3 casings will contam and they do it around the second flush. The contam can be fought tho if caught in time. It can either be dug out or attacked with some sort of antibacterial warfare. But if you keep your grow area clean (esp. standing water) and mist with a h202 solution, you can usually stave off contams down to an acceptable level.

If your really worried about contams you can drill little holes all over your chamber and fill them in with polyfill. Air exchanges wont be much necessary meaning a decrease in contamination probability.

Definitly not a waste. I have never lost a casing to contam. I simply fix them when the time comes. 1/3 might have been a lil bit of an over estimation. And i am talking about surface contams, not substrate contams.
