Casing questions
    #4236182 - 05/30/05 11:50 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I have most of the procedure down pat but just a few things im not to sure about.

Once the cakes have been fully colonized and cased, should it be put back into the 28C (83 fahrenheit) until there is signs of the myc just about to hit the top layer, then the whole thing should be cold shocked so it knows to start pinning. (does that sound about right?)

Now what i cant find anywhere, after the cold shock, should it be put back into the 28C atmosphere or just left at room temp? 21C (70 fahrenheit) and the humidty of this must be high, and thats acheived with the wet perlite.

Yes its always a good idea to incubate for a few days after putting the casing together. After cold shock you want to go straight to fruiting chamber.

my friend has a big tub filled with water and in that water is a fish tank heater set at 28C.
Sitting inside that big tub ontop of the heater (on stands of course) is a smaller tub, in this smaller tub is where the pf jars sat.
Now all i would have to do is, cover the bottom of this inner tub with moistend perlite and get a clear lid and i have my fruiting chamber right? and leaving it at the same temp is okai? Now i just need faning?

You don't need to heat your fruiting chamber, no need to make a mess of your tub in tub with perlite just make a separate fruiting chamber.
