Dehydrated casing? *PICS*
    #4176147 - 05/14/05 10:31 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I'm probably just worrying too much but does this casing look like it will make it through the flush? The casing is like cracker dry.

You can see how its pulling away from the sides already...



It seems to be growing kinda slowly also. Could this be a result of not enough moisture?

Here are my pins from 5/11



This is the growth since then, 3 days later on 5/14



Am I just being too attentive or perhaps it may be a good idea to inject some sterile water into this guy in a few spots? I just want it to finish this flush. Not really concerned about gettin a second out of it since it is purely experimental.

Looks dry to me. You can carefully spray the casing surface now and rehydrate it over the next few days. Just don't soak the pins.

It does look a little dry. Injecting some sterile h2o couldnt hurt as long as you dont over do it. Maybe try misting with sterile water too.

It is indeed too dry. There are a few indicators, casing (50/50 right?) color, mushrooms caps, and pulling.

Mist it every 3-4 hours with a very fine mist and from a few steps away so you don't damage (pan) the casing layer; do this for maybe two or three days, don't over do it in one day, you'd just soak it. You'll know when it's ready by the casing color turning into a darker brown.

When it looks hydrated again follow your usual humidification technique.

Thanks everyone,

I gave it a light misting, will do so again before bed. Then again in the morning before work. Hopefully I don't destroy this thing. Kind of ironic, cause I'd thought that I had the casing layer over saturated when I birthed it into druiting chamber, and it ended up drying out. I think I have too much air exchange in that little fruit chamber and maybe that contributed to it. I was also running a fan on low in the room with it to help air exchange, I've stoped that now though. Hopefully this flush will finish itself. This lil casing was practice for my 2 bulk bins that are almost fully colonized so hopefully I'll do a better job with moisture content in the casing on those.
