I live in Austria, thus I bought the filter and the blower in Austria.
The filter at , the filter had this tag on  it:

The blower was from Model number RVK 160E2-L1

IMO cold shocking is useless with P. cubensis.

The recommended time to harvest is soon after the veil brakes.

After that the mushroom doesn?t gain much on the mass anymore, and it releases many spores which are a  mess.

Read for more details on the growth parameters.

Just a word of caution: A translucent casing container will cause the mycelium pining on the sides of the substrate instead on the casing surface.

Ideally there should?t be any pins on the side of the container.
They only appear if the container is translucent(which it shouldn?t be)
Therefor there is no point in taking the substrate out of the container, just leave it there and threat it as casing.
The Shroomery cultivation FAQ has the answers to your other questions, just take some time to research it.

>- Do flat cakes need a terrarium

Flat cakes have the same high humidity requirements as cakes, so yes, they will need some kind of an enclosure.

>without fanning or spraying do to the lack of care taken away by work and

P. cubensis is a very tolerant species, so you can leave the terrarium without fanning for a couple of days(or even longer, see since P. cubensis fruits even in spawn bags without any active aeration.
You shouldn't let them unattended one the pins have grown over 1/2 an inch, since from then it?s only a matter of 1-2 days when you have fully grown mushrooms.

I am not a big fan of the flat cake, since there is no point really in crumbling the cakes and then NOT casing them.
My advice is, if you don?t want to fruit the cakes as whole cakes, then go the casing route.

1. downlaod and install the divx drivers
2. right click on the link to the mushroom video and choose "Save as..." and save it on your computer.
3. right click the downloaded file and choose "Open with..." and choose the Windows Media player. provided you have the divx drivers installed it should work.

> i really wanted to see your video you got posted

Have you installed DivX?

As for the vermiculite, it is already very clean out of the bag, so moistening it and heating it up in the microwave for 10 minutes is enough.
Never microwave it dry , it will get VERY hot and destroy(melt or crack) the container you microwave it in.

You could construct an enclosure using a plastic bag and some sticks. Or use a bin covered with a sheet of plastic.

I made a time-lapse video of some P. cubensis Burma growing over 42 hours.

The video is 42 seconds long.
1 second in video is 1 hour in real time.

You can download the video in 2 different formats:

Real Media format, measures 320x240 pix, 2.3 Mb:

DivX format, measures 640x480 pix, 3.8 Mb::

For more details on the setup visit (you need to be logged in at the Shroomery in order to read the thread).

Dunking works pretty well for hydrating the cakes:

The color of the syringes varies from violet to completely translucent.
Spores are microscopic, and even you don?t see any. there can be many, many in there.

For the moment I have enough  bandwidth.
I am not sure though if  want this forum as a competition to the big established forums, it?s more of a feedback platform for my teks.
But, only time will tell what will happen.  :)

No, this is completely normal.

>I'd like to try casing for 2 or 3 of my cakes, but this is my first time ya know.

Try it, casing is not hard, but as you said, it's better to not try it with all the cakes at once.
The casing section of the Shroomery should give you some pretty good advice:

I would definitely turn the heater off after they are fully colonized. They can sit for 1-2 weeks in the dark after they are fully colonized, but without heat. The "worst" thing that can happen is that they begin to pin in vitro.
