2nd Attempts at Casings
    #525710 - 01/19/02 06:31 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Thanks to all the help I've recieved here at the Shroomery, and all the info. I've been able to track down online, I finally have a good pin set.

I'm using 4x 50/50 verm & peatmoss casings, each with 3 jars of colonized substrate. The substrate was straight damp verm. according to PFTek in 1/2 wide mouth jars. The spores are Peurto Ricans from Sporeworks (thanks guys)..

Each casing contains 3 colnized jars of substrate with ~1" top/bottom of the 50/50 casing mix. Worked like a charm!

Thank you repobob!
Here's a few more i took this morning...
(the cap on that one shroom is just getting huge!)

Question: Just curious how often i should be misting these? I misted once when I cased, and once again lightly.

Mist lightly between flushes

If you want to have great flushes, the casing must remain moist throughout the growing cycle.

Quote from The Mushroom Cultivator concerning the pin initiation stategy and watering for Agaricus species, but also applies to cased cubensis, page 144:

"....If dry air becomes a problem, a light misting of the casing surface, two to five times daily, should keep the microclimate moist. In fact, some growers knock down the mycelium with a forcefull watering on the first day of initiation, others mist daily as a standard practice. However, once pinning has begun, any forcefull watering will kill a number of developing pins, and damage others......"

FORCEFULL WATERING is not the same as gently misting, ok?

and then on page 154:
"...Other than light misting, any substantial waterings before the button stage can result in damaged pins. But once the mushrooms have reached button size, it is time to begin building the casing moisture back up to the peak reached at pre pinnig. The aim is to reach capacity just prior to the main harvest. This is accomplished by a series of daily, light to moderate waterings with a fine misting nozzle..."

How much lime did uyou use? Ive heard that the 50/50 tek was a little off causing probs for some, but obviously you were right on the dot. Great pictures by the way, im looking forward to trying out the 50/50 once I know the exact fourmula.....the guy says "2.4 cups per gallon of water", as if!!!!!!....isnt it a tablespoon?

When it comes

thanks quetzalcoatl,
basically, i did a LOT of reading before I started, both here on the shroomery message boards, as well as some online links I found to various teks. I for the most part stuck with the approach, simple is better. It's really not a lot of work. Now I just check them once or twice a day and pick when they are ready. :smile: I'm really happy how they are turning out though. So much better than my first attempt.

Here's a few more pics. I picked a bunch of them tonight.

felix,
thanks man! I have 5 casings in the terrarium right now. 4 new casings which were cased on 12/31 and 1 casing left over from my first attempt with 1 jar of colonized cambodian substrate on 12/18.

The cambo casing seemed to be doing ok, but not producing a lot of fruits. So i figured I try adding more substrate. So i included 3 fully colonized 1/2 pint jars of the peurto rican substrate in each of the new casings (above). Funny, i seem to be getting at LEAST double the amount of fruits per casing now.

and I'd LOVE to make you guys some prints, but, i don't really have the glove box or anything. yet.. ;(
