Verm Casing
    #4068701 - 04/18/05 03:11 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Afoaf has a question on verm casing.
Heres the tutorial :
1. Follow PF Tek or MMGG method until you have a fully colonized cake.
2. Wet vermiculite and put in sterilizing container, sterilize and let cool.
3. Sterilize fruiting container and let cool.
4. Add 1/2" (1cm) or more vermiculite layer to bottom of fruiting container.
5. Crumble or leave cake whole over bottom layer.
6. Cover cake with damp, sterilized vermiculite (note: some growers suggest leaving crumbled cake without casing until it starts to grow mycelium again (24+ hours))
7. Cover fruiting container with foil or plastic wrap, poke holes in covering.
8. Let stand.

His question is on step 4 , do i just put dry verm , or do i put sterilized damp verm?

He also wants to know that when you let it stand should it be in a dark spot , or should it have some light?

While incubating, it should be in a dark place, void of light.  Once fully colonized and into the fruiting chamber, introduce 12/12 light cycle... GL bro :stoned:
