Dung/straw question
    #1666368 - 06/27/03 03:22 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

My friend is trying out a dung/straw mixture for the first time. Its been colonizing (spawned from 4-1/2 pint Malabar jars of BRF) for about 2 and a half weeks, but is still only about 85% colonized as there are some spots of dung on the bottom that have yet to be taken over by the mycelium. He checked it yesterday and noticed that the top was pinning in many places, and checking today he can see that the pins have grown. Should he case now and not worry about the slightly uncolonized bottom, or should he wait it out and possibly harvest the first flush with no casing layer? Also, if he should case now, should he pick the pins or leave them on and case over them?

I?d case the parts that have no pins and put it into the terrarium. After the harvest case the remaining portions.
Keep the casing rather thin, 1/2 inch or so.
