Maz Project high RH
Posted 18 April 2005 - 08:31 PM
If I don't the RH goes up in the 80s to 90s. One other concern I have with the Maz is showing myc growth through the casing layer and the TX are not, but when I mist it is matting down the myc.
I have a sprayer that has a fine mist. I also mist not douce the casings. Why does this happen?
LOST the TX casings and pic of the cake are from the print you had sent me :D

A layer of straw/poo a qt of Substrate, a nother layer of strw/poo, a nother quart of substrate. One more layer of straw/poo was laid down with a casing layer of peat/verm
So it is OK to let the RH be in the 80s? It is usually in the upper 80s.
I have a PC fan running 24/7 and the RH is that high because I have 6 13x9x2 casings in a 48gal rubbermaid container.

as long as you see no condensation on the casing surface

Thanks for sharing. The Maz I have growing are from a spore print I got off my original grow back in Oct. I have never had anyones other grow to compare to. My Maz rarely ever got bigger than a bic lighter. With about 1 1/2 - 2 inch caps. My second or third flush I did get a few big guns or what I think are big guns Six inches with about 3 -
3 1/4 inch caps. Beleave me it was only a few one or two per casing. I also just did simple casings verm, substrate, then a casing layer of peat/verm.
About the cases getting sucked dry. Yes, my casings have shrunk a bunch. If and when I get a flush I intend to do a bleach dip and then a dunk. Well its been ten days now. Still no pins :(
I have read that doing the straw/poo thing would add on some time for pinning. I would like to know a rough estimate of how much time?
Well I'm going to get going for now.

I noticed the mutated pinset in the morning. Now I look on the sides of the trays and I can see a bunch of pins. This took 10 days from spawning. The pins are of my TX. Maz still show nothing:(
I bet if I turned these casings over I would have a buch of pins on the bottom of the tray ;)

i see a few pins coming through the top of the casing. maybe its too wet? or matted down? or you just cant see the pins quite yet under the casing?
I think its matted down. Verm is to fine I think. I'm almost to afraid to touch the worthless casing layer I put on them. I don't want to destroy any pins that might be there creating them to rot. After this first flush I am going to remove the peat/verm layer.

did you add lime to offset the peat's ph ?
Yes Hippie. I did add lime. My PH is 7.0
I hope this is ok. I don't know why its only reading 7 because I did add a bit more than what the aliens tek calls for. I am making a referance to the peat/verm method.
As for the straw/poo. I beleave I made notes of it above.
Thank You Hip for replying you have always pointed me the correct way to go.
