PR? Too thick casing layer?
    #1075365 - 11/22/02 12:44 AM (14 years, 22 days ago)

mycellium just poked thru a small container say 7"x4" 1/2 is verm casing and other 1/2 is brf cakes. just cold shocked it since mycellium was coming thru in 3 diff areas. did i put too much of a casing layer on? also just cold shocked for 8 hours infridge.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

read the faq. the casing layer is suppose to be no more than 1/4 the depth of the substrate layer.

Not nescessarily Daussult, I`ve found a slightly thicker casing layer provides for a stronger more even flush.
I have also noted with PR that a thicker casing is necessary at times to promote better growth of the mushroom.
It seems the PR prefer the casing thicker.

cool deal cuz i heard just the opposite. it wasnt say maybe 2 days since it colonized to the top of the casing layer. very agressive stuff. so it likes the thick casing layer? and TMC says never use less than a 1/2" i thought?
