Poo casing hydration question....
    #4339612 - 06/26/05 06:05 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

"Is there no way to add water to the case? What about sticking some sort of small funnel/straw into an unpinning area and adding water down into the case?"

the above quote came from a thread that shroomery member: (myndreach ) made in an earlier thread.

I did not want to hijack his thread...but he did bring up and interesting idea. The whole funnel into an uncolonized spot of the casing seems like it could be a good idea. Just stick it in, and fillup the funnel with H2O and let gravity do the rest....sounds good right?

I have read many posts about "dunking" your casing....and I have tried that once and got a nasty cases of the greens shortly after....it just seems to me like there would be too much contam risk, what with picking it up and out of the tray and all.

Has anyone ever tried using a funnel?? Could this be the next big breakthrough??

Dunking poo substrates is actually pretty effective, I used to do it with good results. Not so sure on how a funnel or straw would perform though.

I have read a tek that does it on cakes. Cant remember where though. I know that they used a sterilized drill bit and drilled into the top of the cake a couple or more inches, then inserted the straw then filled with water. You have to fill the straw like every 2 days i think it said.

You simply water a cased substrate. Simple as that. After a flush, water until its saturated, then drain the tray (to insure no excess water remains, beyond what it will absorb).

should I let it soak for a few mins? I have read some dunking teks that say to soak for 4 hours....but that seems a little too long to me. Just does'nt "feel" right, you know?

simply adding water and letting it soak for a few mins and draining...sounds like a good iidea. I think I will try it, when ready.

Thanks for the help!!!
