Redo Casing Incubation
    #549394 - 02/12/02 10:42 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

So he cased a cake in 100% Verm almost two weeks ago. Put saran rap over it with holes. Place it in an incubator(Fish tank with a heater using perlite humidification) and kept the temperature between 80-87 or so. A few days later only a few dime sized fluffy clumps came up.
Decided to birth, cold shocked it for 24 hours and turned the incubator into fruiting terrainum by taking out the fish tank heater. The temps stay at 68- to the high 70's depending on time of day.(cold up here in the NorthWest)
I mist the verm regularly and fan 2-3 times a day. These Are EQ

The problem is The colonization quit after I birthed it and pins never formed.
Im wondering if I should put saran wrap over it again, and crank up the heat so it will recolonize.
Does this sound like it would work? Anyone and everyones' opinion would be apreciated.

Don't cold shock in the future. It probably just slowed everything down.
Just try and bring your temperature up a few degrees. 74-78 degrees for fruiting. If you are growing at colder fruiting temps, wait alittle longer to initiate your casing, and don't cold shock.
Everything is already slow at 70F. But cold shocking can really slow things down.

Lo
Be careful not to overspray the verm.
If it gets too wet, mycellium won't colonize and it increases chances of contams...
My first ever casing was with plain verm, and i misted too much the top. The casing layer never colonized (exept maybe 5%...) and i fruited it like a big cake since pins were forming on the sides of the casing.
Also, cold shoking slows down colonization.
