How does my casing/set up look so far? (pics)
    #4060418 - 04/15/05 09:48 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Okay, so I have 3 containers using the TiT at a constant 74 degrees. I cased using 50/50+ with crumbled PF cakes one week ago today. I allowed the mycelium to incubate for 3 days, patched, and put into the TiT you now see.

I am fanning about 4-6 times and mist every 3rd or 4th time, as my humidity looks good based on the outside of the containers. They are also getting 12+ hours of indirect sunlight a day. I don't have my hygrometer yet (on order) so I was hoping you guys could tell anything from the condensation on the tops. The sides are the same also.

My question is about the mycelium growth and whether or not I am doing everything correct. Does my casing look ready to pin yet? Is there anything else I can be doing to help things along?









The strain is B+.

I really appreciate all of the help you guys give and value your opinions.

looking good man! If I may suggest, you should try to get your temp to about 72. And fanning 2-3 times a day is plently. lightly mist so you don't kill the myc.

The condensation on the top indicates you are at 100% relative humidity. That's fine for the pin set, but during mushroom maturation and between flushes, you might want to crack the lids a little. If you stay at 100% relative humidity, you'll be limited to two or three flushes before the green mold takes over if you used peat.

You might experience some trouble with pinning on the sides and possibly bottom as I noticed your casing containers were clear.Good Luck.

I've got the side of the large container wrapped with insulating material. D you still think that pinning will be an issue on the sides and the bottom? The mycelium appears to be doing well on the top of the casing and hasn't really done too much on the sides and bottom.

Hopefully everything will turn out okay. I guess we'll see.

I'll try cracking the lids as you say when pinning starts. I guess I should probably limit my misting as well. Thanks for the advice Blue Helix. Hey, notice my large container is wrapped in insulative material? That's all you Blue. Thanks again.

It just looks so natural to me that I didn't notice! Hey, that's great. I think that wrap really helps for even temperatures and so even colonization. Your tubs are proof since they look great too me. I also think the wrap will help reduce the light levels on the sides so reduce pinning against them too.

Oh, and one other thing, be careful with cracking the lids. It is easy to get a little carried away. When you crack them, you'll tend to dry out the soil very slowly. That is okay and it's a GOOD thing. If the top of the soil stays totally wet all the time, you'll get hit with green mold before you see the third flush probably. Just mist when things start to look a little dry, but don't let them dry out. Mist one good time between flushes, but don't keep misting unless things look dry. If the caps start to crack, you've gone too far with the lower humidity thing. A little evaporation at say 90-95% RH draw those mushrooms up to healthier specimens, but too little and the caps crack and they'll be stunned.
