Straw casing.
    #1547979 - 05/14/03 01:36 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

A friend of mine innoculated a box of straw... colonized in about 8 days, then a casing layer of approx 50/50 verm/coir was added. This was left to colonize pretty well..too well may be. It is about maybe 70% colonized on the TOP. all over the casing, not really in one area, so its prett even. There are a couple places that are thicker white than the rest, but they seem to be a fluffy mycelium, doesnt really look like overlay, maybe in a 1x1 inch square on one of the casings. I dropped the temp to about 65-70 (room temp) 3 days ago before it was all that colonized(but still pretty good) and it keeps growing. I am kinda worrying about overlay, and want some pins to show up. I would rather not coldshock, and i think they shuld be cool with time, but I dont want to have to mess too much with overlay. Thanks

Just patch the over colonized areas. This will buy you a little time so you won't get overlay before pins.

Just relax, do you remember f8L's thread a while back. He was going through the same thing you are right now. He was freaking out, and everyone told him to relax, well his casing kept colonizing and he kept freaking out, and everyone told him to relax. It got to the point where even I was questioning if he was going to get anything out of it cause it looked like overlay was occuring, then he got some pins and ended up having a killer flush, I think the single flush was well over 500 wet grams, it was awesome.

So I'll tell you the same thing, just relax, you'll be fine.
