Dry Casing?!?
« on: August 05, 2007, 03:43:32 PM »

It seems as though my casing is drying out even tho I maintain a temp @ 76-78 & rh @ 94 - 96.
  How do you mist your casing to keep from drying out when pins and shrooms are everywhere,
  coz you're not supposed mist these or get them wet, correct?
                             - OR -
  Is this moisture loss typical as they begin fruiting and not a concern until after 1st flush?

Thx,
p4p

mist the sides and the lid that covers it with a fine mist.

The only moisture loss I see is the sides of the sub pulling away for the container it's in.
IME, it is common for that to happen when fruiting.
And I have also been told it is due to lack of moisture,but I had my GH at 100% RH for 24hrs before, and the trays were starting to get pools of water in them, and the sides still pulled away from the container the sub was in.

So I leave it to the mushies sucking out alot of moisture from the sub.
