WBS Casing update (with pics)
    #4493844 - 08/04/05 05:14 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Well my 100% verm casing has been in my incubator for about a day, and I do notice two or three knob-like protrusions from the verm. I guess 2 or 3 more days should be sufficient to allow the rest to come through.


(you can see the white spots...that's where they're popping through)


Once that happens should I cold shock it in the fridge for 12 or so hours, then put it into my 10gal aquarium? I think I have the aquarium all set up right because I looked at the sides of it and they have some water droplets collecting and it feels humid in general. I attached a tap-lite with some new batteries to the closet ceiling and it seems to light the closet pretty well! Temperature probably won't be in the 70's...more like the 80's but I was told this isn't a problem so it'll be fine right? Any other tips you can give before I actually try to fruit for my first time would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

How many myc would I see before I know it's time to fruit? I'm thinking it should look like spots of verm with a whole white surface underneath, but I'm probably wrong...any comments?

I'd fruit it saturday morning when you wake up..I wouldnt cold shock it..and I'd probably put some moist verm over any thick spots, or use a gloved hand to ruffle up the casing surface and spread out the casing layer so the mycelium is even throughout the whole thing. It should look like verm with spots of white poking through, not the other way around.

Sounds good.  I'll be away all day at the Anger Management tour in NJ, so that'll keep my mind off of it lol  :grin:

Ok I came home from work today and there were even more myc coming through and I could see the whole underside was pure white so I patched up some areas with a gloved hand and popped it into my already humid 10 gal aquarium. I turned on the tap light and I'll leave it on for 12 hours a day. I guess all I can do now is hope for pins!
