Well, here are two 2nd flush tex bins. one has a casing the other has no casing.

The tub without casing was dunked for 8 hours while the other tub was misted like a usual casing.

both were done around the same time and both were done with the same methods, recipes and tlc.

the only difference was the casing and the dunk/no dunk.

these pics should speak for themselves. although results may vary. both clones as well.

for some reason the cased tub kinda stalled out a bit at fruiting. its coming around again but half the flush is aborting out.

this is just one side by side comparison. just for reference.

Looks pretty damned convincing to me!

Dunk 'em and don't worry about casing 'em. Those are two pieces of advice I follow to the letter every time...

Nice pics, by the way.

Dunking has by far produced the largest fruits for me. Seems like I just cant get enough water to the myc without it. Go Dunk tek.:eusa_clap

granted the casing has fine verm/coir in it, but either way still more maintenance, more headache.

got to a point where the casing couldn't be misted anymore due to too many pins and was real lazy to sit there with a syringe. and both these tubs had the same amount of air exchange. two heavy fanning a day along with two open holes on the sides.

in another dunked tub. water was sprayed directly on the substrate. its coming along nicely like this decent fattie tub below.

this is first flush of each respectively.

half of this cased tub was harvested for prints prior to this picture.

no, this was a bulk substrate that was grown out first flush. then dunked after that. its one big solid mass.

what was done was a clone was taken via 9er tek. then this clone was injected into pf jars as masters.

these were then scraped with a fork into spawn jars made from wild bird seed.

this was then spawned to a bulk substrate and allowed to colonize, pin, fruit, flush.

then it was dunked for 8 hours total. drained out and placed back in the fruiting area.

also a sink spray nozzle was used to hose down the pinning surface on this bulk substrate. this seems to stimulate pinning or fruiting for the next flush quite well. at times you can see fruits popping up the next day depending on strain and temps.

another dunked tub. this is the tub that was misted directly on the substrate around each fat pin a few days after the initial dunk. although the fruits are not many, they are giant. just about all of them are touching the lids. the substrate soaked up the water nicely a few hours after it was misted down on the substrate. it appears that the fruits look a bit larger than the other dunked tub that was just dunked and allowed to fruit as usual.

man loving this tex so much compared to all other strains probably gonna just roll with it for a few years. seems to be the best to keep! its even outdoing this tc clone. but both are great.
