PF - Tek / I Need information about Casing.
« on: April 19, 2008, 09:36:52 AM »
Hello there fellows,

I'm new at Shroom World, i've been reading teks and teks on this or other sites like forever, and yet i don't understand some details about the casing method.

ASA i'll receive my spores, i'm planning for my first attempt to innoculate and mature the tinnies following the PF-tek, and once i'll get the first Pins i'd like to train on the casing thing. But about that :

_the casing tek on this site indicates to put the cakes in a non-transparent box or whatever casing, with a peculiar melt of verm and other stuff, but once that is done, what to do ? I mean you seal your container and spray some watter in it once or twice a day and that's all ? are there no parameters to manage like Temperature (even if the myc is developping it's own temperature), or else ? And more than all, where do you store your casing ? In many pictures of shrooms i see casings in Transparant plastic or glass boxes (quite tall btw), but is there anyway to buy/build/find a substitute to those giant aquarium like thingies i don't even know where to find ?

_then for the container of the casing, i was planning to use some aluminium cake tin, Would that be correct ? (except for the sterilization part in the microwave i suppose no?) And should it be Higher or Larger to have the better colonization?

 *About the process now:
_You case the cakes once the pins comes out right ? (with the tiny winnies like shroomies.) And then myc will keep growing and Settle over all the Casing stuff that's right ? And will finally mature again to make the final Shrooms we are expecting that much... right ?

_What are the special manipulation to practice during this casing phase in overall ?

Thanks for your time reading my questions and sorry if you have already read those elsewhere. BTW i'm not a native english speaking and mine is quite lame so be gentle on vocabulary during the explanation plz :)
