How to fix overlay?
    #1763605 - 07/30/03 07:24 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

On my friends latest bulk grow, he was using puerto rican, and the mycelium grew through the coco/verm casing layer real quick. So quick that it overlayed a bit without much chance of patch casing. Would adding another THIN casing layer help? If not what should he do?

Deep scratching will help. Take a sterilized fork and drag it through the overlayed casing. You want to break up the overlay.

Very risky procedure known as "scratching " , take a sterile fork and scratch into the surface of the casing aproximately 1/4 inch - 3/8 of an inch deep , recase , put in dark for a few days or till myc recovers and starts to resurface . Reinitiate pinning process "on time " .
Good Luck

PR mycelium is vary aggressive, and slow to shift gears to fruiting mode .
add an extra 1/4" to casing layer, and do not incubate .
case it, and send it straight to fruiting room . (MHO)good luck

when scratching, don't actually use a "scratching" motion, instead stick the fork lightly into the myc layer and use a twisting motion gently breaking up the myc and casing layer, do this all over and very gently, then mist lightly and keep up with fanning.
