Poss contam..

This is my first casing...here is how I did it. I used vermiculite, peat moss, and oyster shell for a mix. I laid down
a 1 in layer and then cut up 2 cakes in 1/4 in slices and covered the initial layer. I then covered the slices with
a 2 in layer of substrate. Btw I opted to pasteurize the substrate for 1hr 10 min. Its been about 48 hrs since I
put it in my aquarium. Im already seeing fluffy white growth on the surface...actually its in a specific spot. It
looks like mycel but Im not sure. I read the contam page and am worried I might have Trichoderma harzianum(green mold).
Does anyone think its to soon for the mycel to be at the surface already....Im thinking yes...but this is my first
casing so I really dont know. What do you think? Sorry dont have any pics

Hmm, 48 hours for mycelium to poke through 2inches of casing material, am I reading that right?

After casing substrate, best to cover in tinfoil/platic food film, poke some tiny holes and put back into incubate for a few days - week.

CAn we see a pic??
