Consensus regarding degree of casing layer colonization
    #1214290 - 01/13/03 12:04 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)


I'm doing a 4 cake casing using straight verm.  I had mycelium poke through in a few areas...probably around 20% of the layer had visible whiteness.  I can't seem to find a consensus here about how much the layer should be colonized before putting it in the terrarium.  I looked at the FAQ, which said to put it in "when you see mycelium in some valleys".  Then a couple people told me to put it in whenever visible mycelium could be seen.  Now I'm reading from other people that they only put it in when the entire layer is covered in white.  So what's the deal? :smile:

Also, can mycelium pin even if it's covered in verm (ie: the top layer isn't colonized but there is a mycelial network underneath).  I realize mycelium needs light to begin pinning...but I thought (perhaps wishful thinking) that since the light triggers a hormonal reaction, this reaction might extend through the entire mycelial network...even the covered parts.

Any help is appreciated

I think it's just animals that use hormonal signaling.

If an entire layer of mycelium covered the surface, I believe the chance of overlay would become greater.

yes it can pin under the verm and work its way up. a few of a friends casing usually has very minimal mycelium poking thru as he patches and such and his flushes are usually nice.

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.
