dry cases
    #578669 - 03/14/02 12:44 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

My casings are fucking with me!!!
Humidity is around 90%. temp is about 74-76 depending on time of day.
some of the casings that do not have pins, are drying out drastically. they have about 10%-25% mycelium covering the fresh case. they dry out FAST.
is it normal for these things to dry out like that in 90% humidity, or is my guage off (i have 2 in there actually) one is very old, and i think it has gone bad.
is misting these with h2o2/h2o mixture suitable?

if these are drying out.. likely the other casings that are pinning are drying out as well. what should be done with the ones pinning/fruiting? nothing/ cant very well mist fruiting trays.. or does it need more humidity/less airflow...

Well, your humidity could very well be too low. Pin initiation should be 95% +. The colonization of your casing does draw out water from them as well. Make sure you are not fanning too much either. 1-2 times is enough for the pinning phase. Fresh air is not needed as much during this time as it is needed more during the fruiting.

Are you using coir? If so that is sorta normal. They do dry fast. But is helped by misting 1 - 2 times a day, and keeping your humidity high. No, dont use a mixture of h202/h20, what would be the point of that?

During pinning, just keep your humidity high, and keep the casings nice and moist. Thats all you need to do. Fanning once in a while is good but not needed as much. As long as the casing layer is at its optimum water capacity, they would pin great.

Good luck!

No, im using 50/50 peat verm + lime casing. its working quite well, i have had great success with microwave sterilization, and water levels.
i figured this casing mixture would need to be sprayed down to keep it moist. since 90% air humidity doesnt seem to do it well.
