When to case your bulk sub?
    #4351739 - 06/29/05 07:26 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Ok so I've got this bulk substrate colonizing, I'd say it's about 70% colonized... here's a quick pic:



My question is when should I add a casing layer to this?  Is it better to case at 100%?  Or allow the myc to have room to grow while the casing layer is colonized... The way I see it, if the myc is still spending energy colonizing the substrate it might colonize slower on the casing layer, but at the same time, that's not a bad thing because overlay would be easier to control.  Anyway, I just wanted a few opinions... Thanks :smile:

Don't case it now, wait until it is completely colonized.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

That is not ready to be cased. However, this is:

Thanks Diver, didn't want to take them all on by myself,lol. I think you were one of the one's who advised me to wait when I wanted to case mine when they looked like that, along with Road and Agar.

While you are here, how bad are the bugs when you don't pasteurize ?

Hehe, no problem. The bugs aren't horrible, but expect some creepy crawlies to surface now and then if you don't pasteurize. It's sort of strange, but I don't mind bugs anyways.

You just rehydrate and spawn ? Add any verm. ?

It took me all weekend to pasteurize 110 pounds and I need another 110 this weekend and don't feel like going thru that again. Where do you keep yours ? are they somewhere where bugs won't matter anyhow ?

Thanks Diver.

I must have missed it, what war? Yeah, I just hydrate and spawn. Some went indoors and that's where the bugs were noticeable, and some went outdoors. Both performed well. Pasteurization is a lot of work, I know. Anyways, I don't want to hijack Onetwothree's thread too much, heh.
