casing colonization...
    #1061790 - 11/18/02 07:38 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Ok, I've seen mixed thoughts towards how long you should let a casing sit and colonize before initiating pinning. Some teks say to let it colonize until the top of the casing is completely covered in myc. and others say to only wait until you see small amounts of it poking up through the casing layer. So which way do you guys think is better? Or is it just a matter of preference??

Usually go by preference if you are skilled, but I would wait till you see growth over the MAJORITY of it. Then you should proceed. Give it 75% growth over the surface. :laugh:

Yeah... if you wait that long, you'll end up with overlay.

In reply to:

You initiate your casing when mycelium has peaked through the surface at multiple points seen around the entire area of the casing surface. This increases the likelyhood that the mycelium has colonized throughout the subsurface layers of the casing layer. You want the casing soil to be colonized, but not the casing soil surface!!!
Look at the PICTURE in TMC of the large bulk tray of pasteurized cased straw. You wont see any Mycelium at the surface of the casing. ONLY FAT SHROOMS.
You wait for the mycelium to PEAK out at multiple spots, to know that it has PROBABLy made it's way up to the surface everywhere, but not on the surface.

[...]

Wait to see some surface coloniztion, peaking out, if you don't know how long it takes!
It is better to get A LITTLE to much surface growth, then to initiate to early, and get an uneven pin set!!! So the more you know your strain(substrain) the less mycelium you need to see on the surface of the casing layer!!
When people with experience refer to 100%, they tend to be talking about the subsurface layers of the casing, NOT THE SURFACE.
