I really don't mist like that. I take the lid off at least 3 times per day for fanning. If the casing looks a little dry I give it a fine mist just enough to keep the casing moist looking. I feel good when the peat is dark brown.

I think you can rehydrate it, pour off excess water, and put back into FC.

Just an update, my first dub with the PR has left us for that pasture in the sky. I think that my mistakes were the verm, not coarse (mislabeled), as well as too much FAE at first and then not enough ? 

To rectify this on tubs hereinafter I’ve found the correct coarse, chunky verm and now have 3/8” weather stripping between the dub tubs . 

I also went and bought a cheap, but with decent reviews, exoterra hygrometer so I can get a better bead on the humidity levels in the tub. I might go and get a few more since they are 7$, and I see you can do a salt test on them to check their accuracy too. 

Many thanks to this community for the pointers as well .

Yes I didn’t see any mods on the tek. The lid locks but I’m not locking it atm to facilitate fae. 

 

I left cased it last night and this morning I had a box fan blast it for a half hour. I mist the sides and top a little before I replace the cover .

I did my Rez tubs somewhat similar. Didn't use a liner but taped the outside. I misted and fanned 2x a day. Just remember that the verm retains water so don't go overboard spraying. Several times I'd have to sop up excess with a paper towel when I was being overly ambitious.

And that is the whole point of this Tek. Reservoir Tek. Holding in all that agua.

@robotard did you case ?

Yes... But I deliberated for 3 days and ended up casing it because I thought I fucked up. The Tek I had never made mention. That said,  the casing does act to protect the substrate from drying out. And if you had your verm to feild capacity, it already has plenty of moisture.

So if you did case, no problemo. Just be easy misting

I did case. I also had a lot of water sitting on top of The sub that the casing soaked right up. The casing has already turned a lighter color from blasting it with a box fan earlier .

I’m still uncertain about a few things :

proper misting and fanning . Currently I spray 3-4 sprays and I have a box fan setup now that I let it sit under for 3 minutes . My casing looks/is dry and darkens with every spray . What do you guys see ?

I spray the sides and top a little before I replace the top. 

I guess I will ask more questions later this would be a good start . 

I see MZ always asking why does primordia form and I am working to better understand this. Thank you guys

Uh oh looks like I caught a case or two of the tamses. Looks like these two (out of fifteen) on that last g2g I did . It happens but I will be reviewing my sterile procedures anyway . Haven’t had too much of this and was wondering when it would rear it’s face . Also have been  slightly that everything is just the ninja waiting to turn on me lol .

The second one might be bruising but it’ll remain in quarantine for a few days nonetheless 

As far as these jars go I was thinking a wash and bleach soak and can reuse them ?

Probably just toss the lids .

 

hope everyone is having a good day

If they're tam'd don't want to open those jars.  If you really need to keep them, I think you could boil them for an hour and then dispose the content, or PC 15 lb. for 90 min. if you have one.

@aqudoc  I planned I’m taking them outside . Emptying them in the trash and spraying them down with bleach and leaving them outside for awhile beige doing something similar to your suggestion . 

Thanks

That will save energy for sure.  Debates vary on bleach or lysol.  I use the latter more often.  Just be thorough before bringing anything back in the house.

These are my tubs that I have cased minus the Rez tub i did two days ago. The first is two weeks old and has two spots where some white stuff popped up last week,

the other dos dubs are a week old and one looks like the myc is taking over the casing and the other looks like the myc is making a ring around the edge .

So I’m going to make a couple small mods on my next tubs . I’m going to line the tubs on the outside for one. 

Also someone had said on another of my posts to shred the peat ? Can anyone speak to this ?

I’m definitely going to mix up all the ingredients of the casing(before adding coarse verm) more throughly than I did before .

another note I’m going to source some milo or millet and soak it before adding to my popcorn spawn jars. My hope is that it will fill some cracks that the popcorn leaves open, there is a lot of empty space in my jar bw the kernels.

I think that I’m when I’m misting and fanning (using box fan) that the fan is too hard in them as there is bling going on up the small stalks. 

What do you think ?

I personally wouldn't be adding any nutritional value to the casing such as castings...  It will contam unless you go back to incubation to allow the mycelium to consume it. Then you're defeating the purpose of the casing. I use 50/50 vermiculite and perlite. Works very well for me, but I ALWAYS pasteurize. I'd ditch the fan beating down on em... The bruises should go away in a day or two. 

I had one lone cambo jar laying around so I thought I'd experiment with the dub tub thing...  It's working pretty good so far...  I actually cased it at spawning, never completely closed off holes for incubation, checked it this morning n whatcha know, pins. Spawned on 3/3

      3-23 The 2 remaining bags that had an extra quart of water puffed and tammed. This raises the question why?  While the 2 bags with 1/2 qt extra we're PCed with the other 3, they are fine at this point. I don't understand why. I would understand if the 3 we're soup(oversaturated) but having all 3 tam when they were PCed with the other 2 that are fine makes no sense. Something to mull over. Next set of bags will be done with MZ's soak and simmer method on Tuesday. At that time I will also take a peek at the first 4 bags that we're nocced 2 weeks ago with GT and LM. Yes I am aware that those species(?) use different grow teks. The LM I am just spawning for G2G to build up until I have enough for a decent crop once transferred to straw based sub.

      Trashed the 6 jars.    Decided to not wait the extra day and looked at the other 15 jars.  The 6 PE showed no signs of growth.   The 3 A+ showed some minor white but not enough to tell if it's mycelium starting or something else.   3 of the Jalisco appear to have the same signs of growth.   I marked the lids of those that showed growth and put them back into incubation.   At least maybe the rye wasn't treated with an anti-fungal?  Very slow growth at best compared to the myc in cakes at 14 days.  Maybe not enough surface moisture on the outside of the grain at the time of inoculation?  It's 79F in the closet but maybe not that warm in the box?   Inserted the digital thermometer probe into the box to see if there is any difference and put them back into the warm closet.   Now I'm thinking maybe the Tamp just didn't have enough time and I blew it by trashing them.  Glad I got back up plan C going starting tomorrow.   At least right now I have a positive sign of growth on 3 A+ and 3 Jalisco with hopes of the others showing something next week when I check again.   Increasing the closet temp to see if that helps.
