casing problem need advice from xpurt
    #4487782 - 08/03/05 01:22 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hola mis amigos... anyway I put in 12 cakes into my poorman's pod about a week ago and harvested about 1 oz from them due to dunk and roll which was awsome... anyway had 2 cakes left over that I never birthed so I used the casing 101 method and put peatmoss/perlite mix as the casing layer within 2 days could see the myc starting to try and pop through so I checked it with a sterile knife to see if it was the same throughout the layer it was just about 1mm below casing surface.. so I said ok time to initiate fruiting... Well, I didn't cold shock it or anything just through it in the poorman's pod which the humidity is probably 90-100% unsure just know it grows mushies fast. but it's been about 4 days now and I can see that the myc is still growing and casing is starting to pull away from sides of container so what should I do?

1. Cold shock the stubborn thing?

2. Cold Shock and then birth it into chamber?

3. keep it out of chamber and just mist a couple times a day?
*average humity for my area is 60% to 90% outside

4. just leave it be and see?

thanks P.S. this is my first grow and first case.

1 patch any overlay on the casing surface, also where casing is pulling away.
2 mist casing layer until it's moist.
3 add light.
4 fan 3-5 times a day (or other air exchange source).

johnson,
peace

The casing is pulling away from the sides of the container because it is drying out. Mushrooms love water; lightly mist the casing often enough to keep it moist.

4days dude, u worryin too much, just keep doing what your doin, althought your obviously not misting enough if it is pullin away from the container when there arnt any big shrooms growin on it. You wont be able to help the casin shrinkin once it starts growin but until then it should not be drying out. Keep mistin as the others been sayin, do it lightly and often rather than heavy/fewer times.
Mine usually pin 5-8 days in my PMP but ive heard that it can take up to 14days, after than then u can start worryin, i wouldnt do anything to it for the time bieng thou, just FAE and mistin...

When you use a casing, you don't need the relative humidity to be so high. This will cause the myc to keep growing without fruiting.

Well checked it this morning, and found many many pins starting to pop up.. thinking about adding very thin layer to keep the myc from overlaying. Was amazed at the amount of pins that are showing this morning, well compared to my cakes that is. Also started a pootek to see how that works out if all goes well hoping to start it outside and get the shroomseeds in the ground for next spring-autumn. will definently mistit again top of casing looks moist tho so don't know if it's just because it's been thatched together from myc growing throughout or if I just need mist will follow advice and keep updated. thanks much=-

Nar dont add anymore casing layer to it now.
You can do this after the first flush when u ready to patch and rehydrate it for the 2nd.
Good to hear u got pins, ATB.
