I just cased today. PLEASE HELP!
    #921023 - 09/30/02 08:02 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I just cased 2 cakes with just the vermiculite method in a small rubbermaid tub. I have it covered with tin foil. I was wondering if i should mist the top layer until myc growth or just mist the sides of the tub.

I dont think so. Im doing poo tek and there is no misting, so Im thinking not, but not sure. Why do verm casing, I dont see the point, the mycellium gets no extra food anyways. It seems like a wate of verm. But you are probably experimenting! So good luck.

You shouldn't mist anything, there should be enough moisture provided by the verm layer. You mist when it is done incubating and ready to fruit.

The casing shouldn't have any "food" for the mycelium, thats why you use verm.

SkiKid is exactly right..... the casing layer is just to re-hydrate the crumbled cake layer. it`s not supposed to have nutrients in it. When you see the mycelia poking through in a few spots remove the foil nad watch that tray fruit  :wink:. Should see pins in 5 to 7 days after removing foil. I use 12 on 12 off of light. I only mist between harvests., and do`nt drown the casings either......just a light misting to re-wet the verm.Good luck. Once you succeed at  casings you will never go back to plain cakes.

After I case, I cover with foil and put the casing back in the incubator. I usually don't check for 2 days. Once the mycelium starts to show, I patch until I get even growth. Then I transfer to the fruiting chamber to induce pinning.

I usually don't dunk/cold shock my casing until after 1 or 2 flushes. Then I remove my casing layer, dunk the brick for 12 hrs, re-apply bottom and top casing, and fruit.
