looking for some verification!!! (and a syringe q)
    #627912 - 05/12/02 04:26 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

hello, i was just wondering if some of you more experienced cultavist could tell me if i did this right, i had made a casing, out of pure dung. i didnt put a casing layer on, until today, and let the meliculim grow all over the top of it (4+ days). today i took some jiffy mix, and oyster shell, i got from a feed shop, mixed the 2 and put about an inch or so on top of the dung. im going to cold shock them tonight, for about 12-24 hours. does this sound about right? can anyone throw me a tip or 2, on what i can do to help out any?

and as for the syringe question, i made a new batch of birdseed/verm mix, and injected them with syringes that have been setting out for a while (a month or so) this is about day 5, and there is nothing happening! some of the jars look really wet too, could i have killed em with to much water? or is it possible that the spores where killed some how?

ok thanks for your time, i look forward to your replys!
peace
Rain

>does this sound about right?
You should cover the now cased substrate with a foil and let sit for a few days, so that mycelium grows into(not over the surface) the casing layer.
Then you can cold shock(optional step) and put into the terrarium at a high humidity.
More info in the FAQ, casing section.

>this is about day 5, and there is nothing happening! some of the jars look really wet too
What temperature do you keep the jars at?
If the syringe is older(1 month is not old though) the germination can last longer.
Give them some more time...

So you put it into the terrarium right away?

well, it?s usually better if you let permeate the casing layer a bit, but it?s no big deal if you put it into the terrarium immediately.

well, im using a bucket, instead of a cassaroll pan or anything like that. so after i pull it out of the fridge today, i am going to just sit it out in the space i have chose for it. so since i didnt let it permeate in to my casing layer, what will that do for me? and i did do it right by waiting for it to grow meliculim before i put the casing layer on didnt i? ok thanks for your help
peace

your fine rain angel give your casing a little light each day, mist (until you see the first signs of pinning) and fan 3-4 times a day and sit back and wait forthe fruits of your labor
happy shrooming!!
