casing (PIC) question
    #4355161 - 06/30/05 01:59 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)



this was cased 4 days ago. After reading a bunch of stuff i'm still a little confused about when to start fruiting. From this picture, u think i should wait longer b4 i patch it and start fruiting? or should i patch and start fruiting now?

How even was your substrate before you cased? If it was pretty even I would patch the heavy spots of myc and throw it in the FC now.

I diddent really think about mking the substrate even when i did it. However, looking back at the pics it seems preaty even.. would it be ok to patch the heave spots then put it back in the incubator till it gets more even... then fruit?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you are going to have problems with even pinning on that substrate. When you pasteurize your horse manure, or even hydrate it, you should always break up the nuggets. You want to have a thick, even substrate.

Your substrate is basically the same as 50-60 individually colonized cakes. Each may pin and fruit on their own accord, but you will not have the support of a full substrate. Pinning on the sides will likely be an issue for you on the majority of those nuggets and harvesting is going to be a bitch.

In the future, while you're hydrating your horse manure, break up those nuggets, and then pasteurize if you wish. When your substrate is fully colonized it should have the appearance of a fairly large cake.

Your substrate should look like this prior to incubating:


Good luck.

unfortunately, what i am casing in the pic above is not cow dung, it's 50/50+. so, is what your saying, that i should have cut up the cakes into even smaller pieces?

Should i remove the 50/50 casing and cut up the the cake-chunks into smaller chunks at this point, or just patch and fruit?

Okay, my bad. They looked like horse manure nuggets.

I would have broken them up a little more than that. Ideally you want quarter to nickel size pieces. The idea is to get the crumbled cakes into to smaller pieces so you have a greater area for fruiting. If you haven't already cased all of them, I would break them up further.

If they're already cased leave them alone. I'm sorry about the confusion.
