Recase after first flush?
    #842963 - 08/25/02 09:19 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Hey everyone,
Just a quick question here. Is it advisable (or not) to apply a thin layer of casing material after each flush of a casing? The reason I ask is that I am on my first casings of cubensis at the moment, and I read in a few places that after harvest of the first flush, it is advisable to put a bit of casing material in the 'craters' from where the shrooms were picked. I figured that since I picked shrooms from all around the casing, I would apply a thin layer all over (about 2-3mm). Anyway, the mycelium has re-colonised all of this, it looks just like it did before my first flush, but so far the only fruits to develop in the 2nd flush have been around the edges (where I probably didnt put any / as much casing layer) and there aren't that many fruits. These appeared about 2 days ago. I harvested / re-cased 6 days ago. Do I just need to give them more time? Or is it bad to apply a thin casing layer over the old one after harvest? Any input appreciated.

There are many ways to go about preparing your casing for another flush. I don't think 2-3mm hurt you. It sounds more like your casing was dry.

I have been told to scrape all the old casing off in order to inspect the substrate for aborts and contams, then apply a new casing layer. I await the wisdom of those who are more knowledgeable in these matters.

Patch the casing layer with more casing material where you have harvested and around the edges where the csing has shrunk,lightly mist the casing until you see 2nd flush pins

Good luck

The Raccoon only has his go around -- to go by. IMHO, it is better to patch after 1st cropping. After 2nd crop apply patch & apply a very thin layer of new moist casing material, so on & so forth.

Sounds like your overall humidity was down. Leaving the 2nd flush to pin where there is more humidity, near the edges. Carefully Mist more next time.

Good luck & everybody has opinions. For whatever they are worth

Thanks guys.
I bet it was the moisture that was the problem. When I harvested I filled in the gaps around the edges and a light layer on top as I said. I gave them a light misting at the time, but nothing since then (apart from maybe a couple of very, very light mistings) Since there isn't much happening in the middle of the casings at the moment, I'm going to give them a mist now and see how it works out.
