Hippie when you say that they will need more water cause of the warmer temps what exactly does that mean i should do?
Humidity gauge said 95% in the FC.

I just went and checked on them, humidity gauge said 85%. Its got at least 4 inches of perlite but I guess with all the holes in the FC, it cant keep up with the FAE it must be getting from the breeze going thru all the holes. What do ya'll think?

Went and picked up some Pickling Lime and Coco Coir to do my caseing tonight. Will be my first time doing a caseing. I had to go to 4 different places to find the damn coir.

Last night I went over to my neighbors and checked out his Roush Cobra he built. He had a guy come down from Roush and they built it together over 2 weeks. Got a Roush 427, dynoed at 550hp at the rear wheels. 10.5 quarter. Its a bad mofo. Plus the garage he built for it is crazy.

So I put coir/verm caseings on both the poo pies. No more than 1/2 an inch i'd say. I also added more perlite to FC so its got about 6 inches worth and I re-wetted it down real good. I also put another lid loosely on top of the top lid with holes to hopefully get the humidity back up to 95%. Will the caseings help raise the humidty?
Any suggestion are totally appreciated!!:hookah:

As long as the chamber is in relatively still air, it looks like it'll hold enough humidity for ya...Casing seems good..

looks good, if i remember right the hb's took a week to pin for me (it probably differs though). the humidity can be a little lower with a casing on it, around 85 like was already said. mmm mmm pie,lol.

Well its been about 9 days since I placed in the FC and 4 days since cased and I havent seen any change. :horse: If you scroll up and look at the pies before I cased you can totally see the pies shrunk a decent bit and Im just worried they should have been dunked cause the cakes used had been fully colonized at least a few weeks before I spawned? I also used a pretty thin casing but have been keeping it damp.

What do ya'll think? Should I just fill the pie tin and dunk for 24 hours if I see no change tomm?

Ill have pics tomm morning but they look they same as the last cased picks.

Thanks for any suggestions!! :headbang:

I would let it be, If you mess with things it could take even longer ... Give it about 15 days after You Layed the casing. You should see the casing starting to colonise a bit . Is there any mycillium poking through ? Most Of The Time I don't see pin's until " 15 days " After The casing was laid down . I would give it a chance. After Full colonisation Of whichever Substrate , I like to start Adding light into the Terrarium Then I take my mister and slightly mist the top of the mycillium. I Then lay the MOIST casing on top. I don't know if anyone else does this but it works for myself. Seems to help with the Mycillium Colonizing into the casing. Do you see anything Poking through ? Sometimes you will not see anything B4 pinning.

I say go with your gut man. Sometimes you just feel whats bests. At this point (and i know im contradicting what ive already said) you probably know if its too dry.

I didnt read well enough to know about the days already in the fc.

Go with your gut. A dunk wont hurt you, getting too dried out will.

My gut does say give it a dunk, Another reason i think they were dry was that I gave a friend 2 of the cakes to take home with them and do PF tek with, well that was over 2 weeks ago and he didnt get any pins, so I told him to dunk get a couple days ago.......I'll see if theres any difference today though.....

Whats happening guys.............Both pies now have 6-7 shrooms a piece with each having 1 large one.........Most the pins tend to come from around the edge of the pie, not sure why? :weedpoke:

This is my first time doing a caseing so hopefully my next flush will have a better pinset but Im justv happy that I'll just be harvesting here soon.:eusa_clap

Hopefully have some pics this evening, my cam is with friends on their vacation for 2 weeks......:horse:

they are probably fruiting around the edge because thats where it pulled away and was getting some light in there. hope you do get another good flush.

Yea, I hope I get a good second flush, a more even pinset would be nice. Today I picked 4 of the biggest shrooms Ive ever seen. :eusa_clap
There are only about 5 more smaller ones coming up. Like I stated before 99% of the boomers have come up from the edge og the pie.......Maybe I used too much pickling lime when I made my caseing?

Still trying to get ahold of a camera.........:weedpoke:

Harvested 2 1/2 oz's of the biggest boomers ive ever seen from my poo pie pans :eusa_clap....They had 2.75 in of poo in each pan. They have been dunking and Im about to recase them. I think I used to much lime last time as only a couple came up from the actual caseing, the rest all came up from around the edges. I ll have my cam back today finally! :headbang:

Any advise?
