Does this casing look like it has the right water amount?that is if you all can tell from a picture,,,,well let me know what you think?



these two are of them same casing just a little different lighting in the pictures
Can anyone tell me if they look like they need more watering or less or if that looks like its pretty good as is
Thanks guys

if it is not yet in the fruiting process go ahead and patch them spots lightly to let the rest of the casing catch up and fruit away.
if you are already fruiting then you should leave it be so you don't disrupt anything that may be going on.
your exchanges seem to be good.
good luck with a good pinset. did you get your casing layer applied evenly?
peace

ya they in the fruiting chamber
well this is my frist time so i am sure it could of been more even but i did try to get it as even as as i could,,,i think on my next ones i am going to add a line all the way around the tray one at 3/4in then one at 1 1/2 and one at 1 1/2" does this sound like the right 3/4 for the bottom layer 1 1/2in for they colonized wbs and 1 1/2in for the top layer?

hmmm, a 1 1/2" casing layer on a 1 1/2" substrate seems a little thick. maybe not but i think so. try going with like a 1/2" to an 1" thick.
i guess the lines thingy would work for ya but man what a pain in the ass to put all those lines around the pan. it is a hard thing to accomplish but as with every detail of this hobby it gets easier the more you do it.
good luck with that
peace

ok thanks for the tip i went 1" casing layer with a 1" substrate on the one in the picture but read somewhere 1 1/2 would be better but you surly cant believe every thing you read....lol...i'll see how this works i'm sure i'll stick with it if it comes out ok,I'll try and make them lines real quick see how it works and post some pictures

go here and check out these casing teks and you will see what i mean about substrate to casing ratios.
http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/8
for the thickness of your substrate a 1/2" casing layer should be sufficient.
good luck
peace
