wbs grow advice
    #4499954 - 08/05/05 02:55 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

this being my second grow attempt, and first casing, i need as much advide as possible. if you have seen my other posts you know that i am using WBS. right now i have ten jars that are incubating and i am waiting for some calcium carbonate to come in the mail. i would like a successful grow with plentiful flushes, but i need clarification on a few matters.

i am going to be casing the bottom of a rubbermaid tub that is a few square feet. i read that the casing container can double as the terrarium if big enough, but it says to put saran wrap over it. does it mean place saran wrap directly on the casing layer or is the cover of my tub sufficient?

thanks for the help... if i have more questions, which i probably will, i will ask them in this post.

If you follow Docs Wbs Tek He says to use pennington brand bird seed, you can get it at wall mart 20lbs for 6 bucks, it allready has calcium carbonate added.

Saran rap over tub not casing layer...

i will look for that brand next time. thanks.

now, it has been very hot where i am and i had been using a TiT incubator. there is a chance that my jars hit the thermal death temp of 106, but i am not sure. i just got a hygrometer/thermometer. is there any way to tell if this has occured?

also... i shook my jars when they were at about 50% and they have recovered very slowly. it seems like i stalled the colonization rather than help it.

Yeah I dont shake my jars because of the same reason, I find it faster to just let them grow, somtimes if you have a little too much moisture inside jars, the water collects on the bottom and mycelium grows above it, when you shake it you distribute all the extra water again and it stalls growth.

As far as telling if they hit thermal death you have to wait and see if it grows.

if it hits thermal death temps, will the mycelium stop growing or do i have to wait to see if the mushrooms grow?

You will get it down, If you follow Docs tek to a T it wont steer you wrong. And remember too cold is better than too warm for incubating jars, if your having problems with innc. the jars will colonize at room temp also......
