    #11191818 - 10/06/09 07:00 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hi there,
this is my first attempt at growing shrooms, they are golden teacher strain, grown on rye grain, case with 60/40 verm/coir.
My fruiting temp is slightly low, around 68-70. everything else is sweet.
This is the 12th day in fruiting chamber and i just go my first pin!! :smile:
My question is, does my casing look healthy? Is it close to overlay? (classic newbie query i know! sorry). And can anybody with a better eye than me see any hyphal knotting? that one pin seemed to come out of nowhere!

no its not overlay. Overlay is thick dead matted mycelium thats impervious to water.

That is healthy very live mycelium.

Overly doesnt mean a fully colinised casing layer. It happens sometimes, especially when you use coir. Because coir is actually a very good bulk substrate. So use it as a casing layer and the mycelium sometimes colinises it because its good food.

Next time use your coir as bulk and skip the casing layer. Use a mix of coir/verm/used coffee grind/gypsum and watch your yeilds rocket
