Anybody dunk a casing during a flush? instead of misting.

Anybody dunk a casing during a flush? instead of misting?
I have a 3.5litre shallow container with a casing. I poured water in until it was almost up to the top of the casing, left it for about 10minutes and then poured it off. This way there was no large water droplets on top of the casing and it was not soaked to saturation point (a peat and hydrated lime casing). Are there any disadvantages or advantages to this over misting?

You want the casing layer at optimal moisture content, this has nothing to do with the substrate directly. Not to mention misting is so much easier IME. I'm sure though you will get nice results as I would think this would work also. GL

I am growing in small trays and find dunking easier. I have a mister but it is not great and goes everywhere. I dunked my casing. It allows the grain to soak some water and the casing gets some too. Worked very well.
