yet another casing Q
    #781793 - 07/28/02 11:45 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

hey all...

ok my friends PR casing is on its 3rd flush right now... and each flush all he got was one giant shroom and tiny tiny tiny aborts.. (maybe 1 or 2) when does he know when the casing is spent...is it a risk to keep it in the terr near the other casings? another question is how can he get the network to grow other shrooms instead of focusing it all on one friut..? also how would one go about cold shocking a case? does one just put some tin foil over the case and keep it in the frige overnight? or is there another method going about it. Hes been watering them with needles instead of directly misting the case , cause he dosent want standing water on the case.. could this be a reason why only one big friut comes out a flush? any info would be great... hes using a coir grain 50/50 tekk.
thanks all
-PeZ

The casing is looks spent when it shrinks alot and looks dried out. Also when it stoppes flushing, just wait until no more flushed come. No it?s no real risk to the other casings, as long as he doesn?t leave it in there 1 month+ after the 4th flush (if you get a 4th). You can?t really stimulate a casing to have an even flush, it depends alot on how the substrate layer was spread out. If the substrate (Cake) was spread evenly you should get an even flush, if the substrate was denser is some areas of the casing more mushrooms will grow there. Cold shocking should be done with saran wrap wrapped around the casing many times. The fridge has A FUCK LOAD of contams in it so only tin foil would probably contam the casing, wrap alot of saran around it and pop it in. I don?t think injecting water into certain parts of the casing is a good idea but im no expert. Misting is alot better, the mycelium will absorb the water from the surface, and if it doesn?t it will just get moist which is not bad.

With my PR casing I noticed spots where I re-cased because the mycelium broke through early had more clusters of fruits than normal spots. Try putting a coir or verm layer about 1/4" thick over the original casing layer. Make sure whatever you use to make the second casing layer make sure its nice and wet, that way the mycelium network can get more water.

Good luck!

I've been at their concert two days ago in Nyon, Switzerland.... The best ever. Smith's voice is better yet than when he was young... He's such a professional... It was wonderful.

LilMerlin, who was not a fan before .
