Beating that DAMN Cobweb
    #4137853 - 05/05/05 03:35 PM (13 years, 21 days ago)

Hey guys, my buddy keeps having cobweb problems, don't know if its the technique or where he lives or what. He tells me that he cases WBS with 70/30 verm+coir, he sterilizes his casing mix in a microwave (he is thinking about moving to a PC to be sure) and then gives it a good mist. He then covers it and incubates it for a few days, usually within a day or two of taking the tin foil off there is cobweb, and sometimes he can smell the cobweb in the incubation phase. I know that air exchange is the best way to combat cobweb, but isn't it impossible to give your casing air exchange while incubating, and doesn't it defeat the whole purpose of covering it in the first place (increased humidity + c02)? Should you cover your casings or what?

Better to prevent then to attack.

Cobweb comes when it is too moist and no airexchange.

Therefore, dont overwet your casing layer, and POKE HOLES (with a fork) in the foil you cover your casings with.

So I should poke lots of holes in the tin foil... thats enough air exchange I don't have to make an effort to fan it or anything like that? And how moist is moist enough? I know in all the TEK's it says "until squeezing not that hard you can get a few drops of water out" but this is very unspecific...

i had it only once
in a "non poked" casing, which i made too wet

the books say the same, too wet and no air exchange is what cobweb likes.

1. just a few holes will suffice, your not going for air exchange just tryin to let any waste gases escape. fanning isn't needed during incubation, only fruiting
2. to test my casing material, i pick up a handfull and squeez. if more than a couple drops come out, it prob. on the too moist side, whereas you can actually see w/ your eyes when it is too dry (compared to field capacity hydration). GL and keep readin!!
