Hello all! I've met a couple of you and really enjoy it here and hope to become an active part of the community. so here's my first question.. my tubs are in my grow tent with a heater, fan, and cold mist vape humidifier. with my rh and temp dialed in, and timers  running the show, do i really need to case my fully colonize sub?? in my research i have heard lots of controversy on this subject. I'm pretty set on just not doing it for this run but if you (anybody) can give a reasonable answer as to why its ABSOLUTELY necessary for yields or pinset or what ever then i am totally willing to listen. but to my knowledge so far, it's a pretty personal choice so i am really asking because this is my first teck other then some cakes i just flushed for the first time. thnx in advance and have a great day all.:)

you don't -NEED- to but i think you should case it this first time, then try out not casing a different time. i always case personally, even though i don't have a need to fan or mist. i have done both side by side and i personally get a way better pinset on the tubs i cased, i also noticed the tubs i cased pinned a lot faster.

Hello and welcome! I agree with the others, you don't need a casing if you can keep the RH above 90%, but it does help. If you can case it is a good idea and will help get a better pinset and flushes.

Welcome don't have to case just bottom water. Yeilds the same for me either way. I like side pins sometimes some are mutations and spiral out love how they look but if your into this for dealing perfect looking top growing Shrooms I say case it properly with pastured stuff and ph correctly cause otherwise contam city can happen over night.

The most cost effective way to grow automated is grains cased with coir and Vern ph corrected and cooked get 15 qts of grain spawn per bucket tek . can't wait for your tub pictures I miss my grow 10 by 8 feet  grow tent. 

P.s. add advice standing water on tent floor lends to unkillable black mold after 8 months to a year. Clear your Martha once a month at least

I too say case....always, for any bulk. And roll cakes in vermiculite.

But the occasional bag I've done, I don't case, but they never do real well whether I case them or not. So I don't bother .

      Greetings n salutations all! I’m not familiar with all the places in which you can create a topic, nor am I sure if I’m in the right spot now 2 do so. As some of you might know from previous post n millions of questions, I’m very new to the whole Mycology scene. Thankx 2 the help of some of the more experienced members here, I’ve successfully completed my 1st flush on 2 variety of cubes, GT n Ecuador. I’m having sooooo much fun n learning so many things, I truly am glad to have found this site. Now, many may not agree with me, but my thirst or quest for knowledge has me all over the shroom world n ready to take on my next challenge. With that being said, I’m patiently waiting for qt jars of rbs n 1/2 pint jars of brf to colonize with the Pan cyan var. Jamaica. While that is underway, my curiosity has led me to the wonders of agar! Although I have zero experience with agar, I’m very eager to test the waters n see what can be accomplished. Am I moving too fast too soon? I feel as if certain steps in Mycology I have down 2 a science, due to it seeming to be fool proof in nature, ONLY if certain measures are taken. Like, I take the whole sterile process very seriously n I feel as long as you practice sterile teks, your more than 50% to the finish line. So, I’ll be receiving all the supplies that I think I’ll be needing to successful conquer agar tek 2 moro. While I’m still reading up on the recipes n different teks, I’m totally intrigued by what some members here has accomplished with agar n can’t wait to chew their ears off about it!

      I placed an order with soap two weeks ago and last week they sent me a tacking number and said it was shipped I waited two days for checking and all I get is pre tracking and nothing else. Has any one else had this happen? To me if you say you shipped then 10 days is enough time to reach me.  Am I getting shammed? Source of spore's oops
