First time casing NEWb questions
    #4132246 - 05/04/05 01:27 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

HI... while the cakes are fruiting im going for another grow and i want it to be casing this time

i got a spores injector that i made 2 months ago.. is it still good to use?

abot the light... if i can see them thats ok right?
cause i got a place with a very weak undirect sunlight
under the roof-tile.

this is what i plan for.. how is it?



thanks

lol, nice pic- but as long as you made the syringe in sterile conditions it'll be fine to use

-if you can see them, there is enough sunlight
-the bottom verm layer is unnecessary but its up to you, you'll get diff. opinions
-just make sure that substrate layer is more than an inch thick and the top casing layer is sterilized and only about 1/2 in thick, more or less, GL

Another thing. Don't know how accurate you pic is, by the way, is that hanging on the fridge now, just kidding, but if you have that much space between the top of your container and the casing layer, you might get CO2 build up on top of your casing. This might inhibit you pinset. Good Luck.

It serves as another source of moisture and can also absorb any excess moisture from possible over misting. I use it myself. And yes, substrate is you crumbled cakes. GL.

Crayola's are crayons. Good Luck. Have you had a harvest yet? You will love casings.

you may have also jacked up the water content in the jar and dried them up. I'd start over now rather than later if I were you.

Have to agree with Clutch. If you burnt them that much, I would bet your water content is not right. Sorry.
