Questions bout hyphae casings method.

I've got some questions about this tek.

Once the case has been patched and put into the fruiting chamber, he talks about misting to keep the optimal moisture level up.
So does this means he IS NOT using a perlite base fruiting chamber?

What happens if we use perlite to keep the humidty up?

He then says once the myc pops through to stop misting, so should we take it out of the perlite fruiting chamber to bring the humidty down? and just keep it at the optimal temp?

2. Second question, so in the case there is only two layers, the broken up cake (bottomlayer) and the top layer of 50/50 (peat moss/vermiculite), all other methods have 3 layers with a bottom layer of vermiculite or something like that?

1. Even with perlite humidification there will still be evaporation from the casings surface which is a good thing BTW as long as it isn't excessive. Once the myc pokes thru the casing will have enough moisture (at least for peat based casings) to carry it through the pinning stage in most cases, RH should be kept high as this is very beneficial to primordial formation.
2. Bottom layer is not necessary at all with proper water delivery and can certainly harbor contams over time as water will have a tendency to stagnate because of a lack of evaporation. I do not recommend this added step/layer/work. GL

Yeah, I think Ascension is confusing moisture and humidity. Misting the casing is to keep the moisture in the casing mix up, not necessarily the humidity. You will need to monitor and control both the humidity in your growing environment and the moisture level of your casing mix.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.
