First try with straw/even pinsets
    #4042769 - 04/11/05 10:07 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

This is my third go at casing and decided to try some small bulk and see what I could come up with. I took my first casings and recycled them into some worm castings/wheat straw. One pan contamed but the other two arent looking bad.

This one is Golden Teacher


This one is Kog Samui


The only question I have is on the best time to water the casings. They seem to dry out quite a bit in between pinning and harvesting. I have read about and experienced the problems with misting pins/small fruits, but I find no way around it since my casings seem to flush continually with no break. Is there any way around this other than trying to make a more even casing layer or using a clone/isolate that pins more evenly?

Nice job with your casings.

I could talk forever about my misting routine, but it would be better to just give you a link which would sum up what I have to say. Here ya go:

A pinning strategy

I mist pretty heavily, enough to keep the casing visibly wet. During pin formation I tone it down a little bit, but not too much. Ok, tired and short on words tonight, just check out the link.
