Does mycelium just keep growing and growing until it's cased
    #1508217 - 04/30/03 05:38 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

My friend was wondering if the mycelium will just keep growing until it's cased, cause the entire layer isn't covered in white yet, and he isn't sure if he should proceed or wait longer.

Uhhh wait untill 100% colonization. Otherwise you will have to take off the pieces of cake that are not colonized.

A terranium I guess you can say...

So if I leave just leave it for a few more days, it should grow more right? It's been about 12 days already

Ahh, you bought an already inoculated casing? Just follow directions that came with it, or on the web page, or at the store.

No, the casing he'll make out of some certain soil and spawn mix...says to first let the mycelium grow and then to apply the casing mix...

I'm just not sure if I should leave it in the dark to grow more, or start the casing

if you have a substrate that you are going to do 'something' with, then its gotta be 100% colonized wether you want to case it or spawn something with it.
Jake H-hope thats what you are looking for, gonna have to be more specific

Well, he created the substrate and followed the instructions, which told him to let it sit in the dark for 12 days. After 12 days, the mycelium has not yet covered 100% of the tray.

Before casing , he was wondering if he should continue and just case, or let the mycelium sit in the dark for a few more days to fully grow and cover the entire tray.

well that time for 12 days is probly at high temps, and it is only approx, so wait until 100%.

IF you case to early, you run the risk of getting contamination. Reason- the myc. won't be strong enough to fight off any contamination you might encounter. Just be patient and wait a few more days.
