Too much vermiculite on top?
    #1423506 - 04/02/03 05:05 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

OK, I put something like 1/2 inch - 3/4 inch of vermiculite over top of my fully colonized (mycelium covered over top of the casing) casings for the casing layer.
ONLY VERMiCULiTE ON TOP

No peat , lime, or that shit...
The casing trays have drip shields over top to prevent water damage...

I took the temperature down to about 62-64 degrees F for 3 days with a fluorescent bulb (cirular 30 watt warm white) turning on for 6 hours / day.

I now have the fruiting temperatures set at 74-76 degrees F with the light still going on for 6 hours / day. I have seen no pinning yet.

Does anyone have any idea what I should do??? Any help would be appreciated!
