It sounds to me as if you have over humidified your casing. The growth of mycelium you have is known as overlay, which is a side-effect of over humidifying. Actually casing's donot need as much misting as cakes do. That is the whole job description that the casing layer serves on the chopped cakes: to keep the chopped cakes moist. It, it's self needs very little misting until after every flush. Until then if you see moisture( doesnt have to be a river of water) on the sides of your growing chamber. The best advise I could give at this point is to scrape the casing layer off with a fork as much as possible and recase with dry vermiculite. Mabe it will fruit. The last time I had overlay, that tray never did fruit. Oh' one other thing. If your spores didnot "have sex", then all you will get is white growth and no fruiting. A good way to know if they mated or not is to look at the jar for ropy strands of growth this is a good sign that the spores did mate and you may just as earlier noted have over misted.

you may want to try cold shocking. I've seen it done at 60F for 38-40hrs.
good luck!!

If your not living on the edge....Then your taking up to much space.

I would also vote for cold shocking. Put tin foil over the container and put if frig for a day (or even 12 hours or so)
