To Scratch or Not to Scratch

My first attempt at Buttons seems to be doing fine.
Mycelium is forming in cottony patches on the casing.
Should I leave it be or scratch it to the manure?

I would say Mycelio is an expert in this area,
so I'll leave you with this -

Mycelio - Agaricus bisporus on non composted substrate

Hey thanks, but fortunately we have a few more agaricus growers here. Unfortunately my experience with scratching is close to zero. Tried it one time, killed the mycelium in the casing layer and had to wait longer for fruiting.

If possible, I'd lower the humidity, so the mycelium would stop growing. Spraying it down slightly also works. With both ways I always had more than enough primordia. How many mushrooms actually grew seemed to depend on the substrate depth.

I fan and spray twice a day. I could cock the lid to reduce humidity and increase air flow. I'm growing Warm Weather Buttons right now.
Manure is about 4 inches deep.

Professional growers lower the humidity and increase FAE. You can just open the lid a bit and wait for primordia formation.

A. bitorquis should be pretty easy, since it fruits at higher temperatures and does not get as much diseases as A. bisporus.

For A. bisporus a substrate depth of 10 inches should be the optimum. I would expect the same for A. bitorquis. But less will also do.

Thanks!
I hope it will fruit in the 68-72 degree range, that's the current room's temp.
