Just made a casing...HELP
    #4487528 - 08/03/05 12:43 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

OK, i bleached my bathroom and filtered the air for a good hour. Sterilized everything, yada yada yada. I cased some S.AM. cakes with 50/50+. I put it in a tin foil pan, and covered it with sran wrap. Now, I have a few questions...
1. I think I need air exchange. If so, should I poke holes in the saran wrap and cover it with tyvek, or replace the saran with tyvek? Or could i hook a air pump up to it?
2. What kind of additional humidity do I need, if any. The casing passed the "squeeze test"

I read up on it all, but some sources recommend different things (humidifier, tub on perlite, ect), so I would like to know first hand opinions or teks you use. Thanks:)

1. You only need some holes spaced out in the wrap for gas exchange, it needs to be re-incubated till the mycellium is even across the casing just below the surface,patch as needed, then innitiate pinning with the 3 triggers (FAE,light,temp drop...)

2. The humidity needs to be around 85-90 rh. I just use a timed coolmist for FAE with some supplemental misting with my misty-mate....

hope this helped some...


Take care n be safe...

ive made up 3 sets of casings using the 50/50+ tec and have had good luck with it.. all i did was get a lil pin/needle and poked a hole about ever 2" in the saran wrap and ive never covered it with tyvek or anything like that. then place it back into your incubator.  what kind of setup you using?? just a tub with a lid.. a green house?? the casing will make some heat and humidity itself, ive never used perlite on the bottom of my fruiting chamer or anything like that and my humidity stays over 90%.  if your just using a simple clear tub as your fruiting chamber just take the lid off and fan it atleast 3 times a day after pins form and you should be good.  or read up on the single/double tub tec. my first set of casings i did the faning method then i made up a single tub and i dont think ill ever change :smile: its the easiest method out there in my opion.  GL on your grow man :scaryshroom:

I appologize for any confusion, what I wrote in (2) was for fruiting, not incubation.

You dont need any additional humidity for incubation, it should only need to be there for around 2-3 days (mycellia poking through casing) and you can leave the lid on. When your ready to fruit, patch if necessary and put it in the fruiting chamber. Dont forget to give it a good mistin at that time too....

Leaving the lid cracked will allow light and air to get to it and that could cause early pinning, you dont really want that if your shooting for an even pinset.


Take care n be safe...
