Ok I'm preparing my casing...
    #4488297 - 08/03/05 03:08 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I just nuked the verm/water for 10 minutes and I'm letting it cool to room temp. I'm using solo verm; if scatmanrav says use straight verm, I'm using straight verm. When it cools I break the colonized WBS into dime size pieces and coat the bottom of a 2.5" high Rubbermaid container with a diameter of about 9-10". Then I sprinkle the verm on top and cover with tin foil, poke holes in it, and shove it in my incubator until I see an even layer of white showing through. Then do I cold shock it in the fridge for 12 hours or just put it into my 10 gal perlite/water aquarium and begin giving it 12 hrs of light every day...or both? Does this sound good?

Well overnight the verm dried out so I added more bottled spring water, broke up the wbs and layered about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the wet verm on top. I hope the WBS was colonized enough...the jar was frosty all around the outside the the inside was a little under-done if you know what I mean. Regardless all the the seeds has at least some myc on it so I threw it in my incubator with some holy tin foil on top and I'll take it out in a day or two and look to see if anything's coming thru.
