question about improving fuitbody mass
    #793873 - 08/03/02 08:49 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I have run 4 myco-bags through their full cycle and have now cased them with 5:1 peat moss and wood chips (fine grade). I have gotten lower dry yields with the casings. The mushrooms are growing at a decent hiehgt but have very thin stems.

I have noticed that the closet that they are in is warmer than ideal and has little or no moisture. The bags pin on time but are slow to grow and have many aborts. The soil in the bags has stayed reasonably damp but appears to dry out on top at the same time the fruits begin elongate.

So I guess my question is, Can I mist the casing while the mushrooms are growing?

If any one has tried this I would really appriciate any input.
