what to do next?????
    #465368 - 11/21/01 06:49 AM (22 years, 3 months ago)

A bird I know cased 3, 100% colonized brf and vermiculite jars. The bird was wondering what to do next, it has the containers with the lids on now and thinks that they should be on for seven days. Then if the bird sees white growth than the bird should start to water daily, right? If the bird doesnt see any white growth on the soil then should he do something different? Any input or adivice would help.

You only need to add enough water by misting to replace water that is lost by evaporation. The lids should keep things moist so you may not need to mist until fruits begin to form. If you don't see white mycelium on the soil after a week, your casing medium could be too moist or too thick.

the casing layer should just be barely moist... most people have it too wet the first couple times they try casing. It barely needs to be damp, a friend of mine usually doesn't need to mist until pinning starts. Just make sure the casing isn't dry and you should be alright, if its too wet it will slow down the colonization or it may not even get colonized.

Vitamin C chase, kill the taste. You can tell its nasty by the look on my face.
