Casing Questions.
    #447570 - 11/05/01 12:11 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Got a couple questions for all you casing Guru's out there. I'm about to fruit some 50% colonized P.cube casings and need some help to make sure I do it right.
1. When should I initiate pinning? 50% colonized 70%... xx%?
2. Do you mist the casings until pinning starts or never mist onto casing layer?
3. What is the ideal rh and temp for fruiting P.Cube strains?

Ok.....first....wait till your jars are 100%. Even after they reach 100% let them sit for another 3-4 days. Then follow what ever tek you'll be using, and yes you can mist the top layer as needed. Be careful not to over do it though. The temps. should be about the same as you would keep for the jars....82-86F. Don't give your casings any light just yet. In a short amount of time you will start to see the mycl. poking through in some spots. If these spots are really taking off(growing fast), then cover them very lightly with the casing mix. This will help with even pin-set. Humidity during this time should be around 92-95%. When you think there ready(won't take long), start to give them light, and drop the temp. to about 72-76F, and lower the humidity alittle.....85% will do. I myself really don't ever use a gauge to judge the humidity. After you do this for some time, you will start to see tall-tell sign's of what to do. Keep a note-pad around, and write down everything, that's going on. This will help later in time.
Good Luck! :)

P.S. One more thing......you might start to see little tiny balls, once you start the pinning. When you see these balls (remember....very tiny), stop misting. These will turn into your shrooms :)

I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me, and I in him, he will bare much fruit.
Apart from me you can do nothing. john 15:5
