Casing or Rice Cakes
    #437286 - 10/26/01 01:22 AM (21 years, 10 months ago)

I want to produce high yields, and i know rice cakes will not do the job. And i dont quite understand the concept of casing. So I have the following questions. (Assuming that the conditions are right in my terrium)

My set up operates with a humidifier, so after i case my rice cakes, do I have to cover them up with syram wrap? and if so, why?

I read somewhare that if you touch your rice cakes, it will bruse them and hender the growth of shrooms. Is this true? and if it is, how the hell else am i supposed to crumble my rice cakes and case them?

My humidifer does not create condensation, is this ok or is something wrong?

If u want high yeilds you gotta case you cakes..
Yes Cover your casings with syranwrap..Your casing need som time to recover and poke trogh your casing layer..[High humidity and no2 levels].

Dont know about bruising the cakes..[nerver worked with cakes..]..I guess u dont wanna stress your cakes when they are fruiting...and when you case the casing has some time to recover berore it start fruiting..?[Just my theiry, don?t know if it?s true..].
Dont know bout the hbumidifyer either...[fanning and spraying is the way to do it..:)]

put a layer of casing material at the bottom of the pan, about an inch(optional). take half of your cakes and put them in there aligned & spaced equally. it should look a six pack of beer (assuming you have 6 cakes) then take your other half of cakes and crumble, connecting your whole cakes together.
cover with more casing material until it is even and level.
it should be 1"-2" from the top of your cakes.
cover with seran wrap, or foil and poke holes.

condensation is a bad thing.
i think what you have will work.
get a hygrometer from walmart ($3)
and test your rH.

Just a comment about the RH meter from walmart. I have yet to see a RH meter for under $100 that will be accurate to the degree that we are requesting here 95% or so humidity. If there is condensation on your walls than you are all set. I got a RH meter from walmart and it says 50% and the chamber is SOAKED........ so save yah money and make sure there is always water appearing on the walls of the container you are using

So, calibrate the thing then. They don't come calibrated.

Wrap it in a damp cloth for a few hours and then take it out and set it so that it reads 100%. Then it's done. There is another tek that involves salt but I don't have a link for that.

I'm sure someone else here will follow me up with the link (thanks guys).
