Am I screwed?
    #876150 - 09/11/02 02:38 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I cased five jars on friday, the mycelium is growing great, I just covered the high spots with more casing so I have an even pinset.  My question is:  I cased with peat and verm but I didnt add any ph buffers.  Is it too late to add something to my casing (maybe mix it in water and spray over the casing?  what do you think :confused:

no need to worry about verm and contamination. as for peat, you may have pasteurized it first.

i think everything will be allright. just be patient, it takes time to pin...

Someone tell me if this idea is totally whacked.  Since I cased with peat and verm and I didnt use any lime, could I just spray the casing down with Tums (lowers acid in your stomach) and water in order to raise the Ph of my casing?  Is this necessary or should I not worry about the whole Ph issue and just wait for shroomies to come up? :confused:

If you pasteurized the peat, I wouldn't worry too much. After your first flush, scrape everything off and case again with new material.

I pasturized mine, so I hope it will do well.  I still think spraying the peat down with Tums water is a good idea, Id hate to have to scrape away all my peat after it was colonized, does everyone agree that this should be done? :tongue:

In theory it would work, desolve tums in water and spray the casing thereby lowering ph.  :tongue:  come on...it could work! :smile:

you never know the tums may work, but since this is your first attempt i would say go with mickey on this one!!!  just recase it after the first flush, this time with a buffering agent added and the peat pasturized like you did before. :smile: good luck and let us know....
