How's this for my first casing? (PIC)
    #4146984 - 05/07/05 04:23 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Actually my 2nd casing... but the first one was using just verm and was WAY uneven. I took a little more care with this one. It was "birthed" about 6 days ago. I'm wondering if it's starting to overlay? Should I keep patching lightly until it pins? Humidity in PMP is 95-98% Temps are 65F-75F. I havn't been misting. The casing surface still fills moist. I cold shocked again yesterday by placing an ice-pack in the terrium... drooped the temps down to a stead 60F for about 18 hours. I know it takes time to pin, and I'm not worried about that as much as what to do until then. Keep patching? Mist? or just let it be?


EDIT:
Casing mix was 50/50 with oyster shell. Subtrate BRF. Strain is GT.

That's damn near picture perfect. I'd try to drop the RH some. Like 70-80% works nice for casings during the fruiting cycle. Looks good man.

A couple questions for you since I am going to try my first casing in a couple days:

1. How deep is your aluminum pan?
2. How deep is your substrate layer and your casing layer?
3. Did you place the pan in the PMP without an incubation period?

~4 inches deep

2. How deep is your substrate layer and your casing layer



~1/2" Verm on bottom of pan
~2" Crumbled BRF subtrate on top of that
~1/2" casing layer of 50/50/oyster on top of that

No, I incubated with the pan wrapped in foil for about 3 days, patching when needed. Icubation was done in a closet on top of a bunch of towels (acting as a heat buffer) which were on top of a heating blanket set to low. Temp was a steady 82F
