When is the best time to put the casing layer on?
    #1362132 - 03/10/03 07:52 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)


I have 2 casing trays filled with developing spawn...
- One has large patches of cottony mycelium poking through the top of the grain.
- In the other tray, the mycelium almost completely covers the grain except for about 2 inches on the right side.

How soon should it be until I put the casing layer over them? I'm planning to use straight vermiculite, and maybe spray the top with lime water..

anyone have some info?..

anytime you wants.

I usually wait until the surface is all covered with mycelium, then aply a casing layer and place directly in fruiting chamber.

As soon as i see it poking thru, i patch once and let it go!

I put it right after breaking the mycelium into the pan, then add more 4 or 5 days for last incubation and then finally into the terrarium. Others apply it after the short incubation period and right before going into the terrarium.
