moisturizing casings
    #404793 - 09/26/01 02:12 PM (16 years, 8 months ago)

I finally got some pretty cute little pins on my PR colonized rye cased with coco fiber. Oh, I love them soo....
Oh, the question is, some of the mycelium that is sticking up from the casing is turning a bluish color. I am guessing that is from the casing being dry. Is there anyway to rehydrate my casing without risking get water droplets on the pins. I have a way to inject for sure sterile water but I don't know if it will be able to be absorbed by the mycelia. Any other ideas? A couple drinking straws maybe?
help please,
Heathadelic

the whole substrate should not be covered in mycelium.. this is called overlay.. theres a tek in the growing mushrooms > casing section of this website.
This may be what you have
otherwise, to rehydrate a casing, (not overlay) all you need to do it mist it, or get the moisture level of the air up via perlite or a humidifier.

hahaha, i know my casings are for sure overlayed. Those damn mycelia just wouldn't quit growing. I even deep scratched and added another casing layer. They tore through that one even faster. I finally have some pins but I'm not too optimistic about their making it to maturity - because of the overlay and the moisture problem.
Any other ideas?
