Re using a casing?
    #956404 - 10/13/02 05:58 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Im a first time grower. I have a little crop growing in a tub of compost. I planted it from a mycobag with rye berries. I am starting my 3rd flush, and i was wondering if it was posible to pick a couple chunks of mycelium out, and plant them in a new tub with compost. Would the mycelium be able to grow and case that whole tub like it did to the original one?  :confused: If that isn't posible is there any other way to re use a casing?

Sweet!! how much mycelium should i pick out of the other container? And should i use pieces that are pinning, or have lots of knots in them? or should i try to use the fluffy stuff? or does it even matter? Oh i got the compost from that crazy homestead kit, what kind of compost should i look for at the store?

Yeah i've already grown two flushes... Thats what i was worried about.. I guess my question is, can i spawn another container if the casing is already producing fruits.

Also in my casing, the mycelium is bright white all around the edges and in patches, and in the middle it looks like cobwebs.. Is it posible that i have contamination? But like i said its all fruiting around the sides...

If I were going to try to reuse a casing I'd wait until it was done fruiting to use it to spawn the next one.  OR if you wanted to waste a mushroom I'd throw it in the blender with some sterilized water, whip it up into a mushroom milkshake and pour it into a spawn bag.  Should take about a week to fully colonize, then you can spawn your casing with your bag.  Hell, you might even be able to get away with pouring the mushshake over the casing if you were very sterile... Maybe, I'm not sure though. 

I wouldn't rip chunks of mycellium off of a fruiting casing, it might put the mycelium into shock and introduce contams, or just stop the fruiting.  Risky  :cool:

You can do about anything. The question is -- will it work?

A fresh fully colonized casing defends itself from contam's. The longer it is exposed, the more flush's it puts out, the more chance contam's will set in.

Sure, you could do that. But, since your introducing it into a fresh uncolonized casing. Odds are you may also intro a contam, which has a much greater chance of getting a foothold in a fresh uncolonized casing.

Learn G2G transfers. Once you have that down, you will have spawn out the gazooo & can start fresh casings at your leisure from a stock of spawn jars. You can store fully colonized spawn jars for months in a fridge.

6T  :tongue:

So i could actually grind up a mushroom, and attempt to colonise the compost? Also if i baught sterilised compost, would i just open it when im ready to plant the mycelium, and throw that in the tub then add the mycelium? Or is there anything I have to do special to keep it sterile? Because last time as soon as my bag was colonised, i just put the compost they gave me in the tub, and mixed the mycelium from the mycobag with my hands. (with rubber gloves on) I defenantly don't want to hurt the fruiting mycelium because then im shit out of luck. But i do want to do the casing over again, this time i can take better care of it. The only reason im trying to do all this is because i don't have a credit card yet, so i can't order syringes. Otherwise i'd just get a new mycobag and syringe. What kind of compost should i look for at the store? Or do yall sugest somthing differnt?
