poo spawned casing ? help 24 hr
    #4094665 - 04/25/05 11:58 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

ok well i am at a step where i need help guys. my 4lbs of poo is 100% colonized and I am going to add my top casing layer of 100% verm tonight. Now here is my question...

once I put the verm ontop do I start 12/12 lighting and 75? temps, or do i leave it dark and 85? until I see pins start up. Thanks for the help. CS

i would put a diffrent casing for better results.and when you put the casing on put it back in the incubater until mycel just starts to pop up thru the casing if its big spots patch and put in the fruiting chamber mist till you see pins.

100% verm is not near an optimal casing cover.

20/coir/40/peat/40/verm would do you better.

But, to answer your Q..... cover with casing mixture & continue to incubate in darkness until myc starts to crop out on the surface. Then - expose to fresh air exchange & light.

Oyster shell will not adjust the PH of peat quickly. I would assume you had the initial PH way out of whack.

You will not get a pinset as above with straight verm casing cover.

Jiffy Mix(R) is peat/verm(sometimes perlite, make sure to check)/ph buffer...  If you're going to use Jiffy Mix, I'd suggest half JM half verm, and some ground eggshells or equivalent for long term pH buffer... GL bro :stoned:
