First casing attempt: Question
    #607936 - 04/14/02 10:51 AM (18 years, 9 months ago)

A newbie FOAF asked me to post this.

He has two trays cased five days ago with home made 50/50+. The trays are covered with tin foil with some holes poked though, in a terranium with moist perlite in the bottom. The Temp is 82, RH 90.

Today he checked on the casings and it seems to him that they are bit too moist. Some white is starting to show up, and also a spot (in one of the casings) which he fears might be cobweb, but he isn't sure.

He recieved a shipment from Bluethumbs yesterday which included some 50/50. Blue's 50/50 is much drier that his home made.
Anyway, he put a layer of Blue's casing on top of his and craked the terranium lid to let a little moisture out.

Is he on the right track? Comments will be appreciated.
BTW the strain is PESA.

casings do not necessarily need a terrarium. if you're living in a dry area, it would be a nice idea... but the whole theory behind casings is that the casing layer provides a humid microclimate ideal for pin formation. that being said, your RH @ 90 is way too high. if you really think a terrarium is necessary, then just humidify it via moist perlite, but don't let it get so high. and take the foil off of them 3-7 days after you case it, it's purpose has been served if you can see some mycelium poking through the casing layer after a few days. just remember to fan your casings 4-6 times a day. air exchange is very important in pin formation --> do not mist if there is enough moisture (as it seems there is), and esp. do not mist after pins have formed.
