my casing is not coming out
    #538637 - 02/02/02 02:11 PM (22 years, 1 month ago)

i did my very first casing with 3 of my brf/verm cakes. i cased them into a bread pan (ones used for baking) with 1" verm on the bottom, 1 1/2" colonized substrate(crumbled cakes), and a 1/4" of jiffy mix on the top. its been 6 days that passed and i have no progress, not even the little spots of mycelium that are supposed to poke through.
-whats should be the equal parts of each for a casing?(verm, substrate, and casing material)
-how many inches high in the pan or container for each?
-how long til i can put it in my terranium?
-oh could some one hook me up with the link for the coco coir tek?
thanks for all your help here on the SHROOMERY
peace love and alohas.

it sounds like you did it just fine...you might want to top to be a little thicker but it should show growth through 1/4 inch layer in 6 days...my wombats usually show growth through an inch of casing in 3-4 days. What are the incubation conditions? Were the cakes fully colonized? You don't need a tek for coco coir....just break some off, moisten it to field capacity (you can squeeze a few drops ofwater out of a handful) with 95% water and 5% h2o2, sterilize and then case top and bottom with 3/4-1 inch or more. Many people talk about not sterilizing coir but when space wombat tried that he got a lot of bad green stuff, now he sterilzes everything in the pressure cooker and so far so good. good luck!
