It may help a bit but in a casing the shrooms get their water mainly from the casing itself, not the substrate. If it were me, I wouldnt spend the extra time dunking if I was going to case them anyway.

If you will it, it is no dream.

Hi ,

i dunked after my first flush two of my casings,
They where about 20% bigger then my other eight casings and had some bigger clusters.

I dunked them for about 5 hours in sterilized water,then i let them drip till it didnt drip any big drips any more, then i put them back in the trays and sprinkeled some fresh casing layer over it.
