Spraying Casings!
    #546814 - 02/10/02 07:27 PM (19 years, 3 months ago)

I am now dealing with my first set of casings that are actually pinning. Upon first putting my casings in my terrarium I kept the humidity as high as possible at about 70-75 degrees. WIth ocassional misting.
My terrarium is basically some shelves enclosed with plastic thats powered with fresh air and humidity with a cool mist jumidifier.
After pinning has started should I continue spraying or just stop? I know that shrooms consist of 90% water so I want to be sure there is sufficient water for them to grow.

Is there going to be a FAQ entry about how to initiate pinning? It might be helpful.

Peace

so once the casings go into the terranium, what is the optimal humidity that is wanted? 80-85 or 90-95? can someone set this straight for hopefully the last time?

After removing the cover from your casing, humidity should be 95%+ until pinning starts, at which point the humidity should be lowered to 87-92%.
Stamets says so

You are welcome Split

MickyFinn... to get humidity between 87-92 you just need to play around with your setup until you get it right.
Usually it just involves fanning once or twice more per day, you may want to leave the air bubbler on all day and see what that does... or you can leave a crack in the lid of the terrarium. Or run the bubbler dry....
Its just trial and error..change something, let it sit for an hour and check humidity. Repeat. Once you get it done it will be easy to do the next time.
