So I made this casing about 2 weeks ago. About one week ago I left, for a week, and had it sutting in a very high humidity rubbermaid thing without any air exchange. Do you think that after a week of stagnating, starting an air exchange now will let it start pinning?

I'm going to try anyway, let u's know if it's a waste of time but whaddyu think?

if you left it for a week with no air exchange and patching then i would be worried that it became overly colonized possibly overlayed. what does the top layer look like?

on the other hand, if you left for a week after one week of fruiting conditions then yes you probably shocked the mycelium into thinking that it wasn't right for pinning. just continue to give it fresh air and wait it out, i bet you're ok.

cased with verm only, the top seems kinda dry, (think i should dunk?) it isn't FULLY colonized but the myc. is growing up the sides. very fuzzy everywhere.

do not scratch unless you're sure its overlay. from what you say it sounds like the mycelium is just coming through the surface so you need to coninue with fruiting conditions. yes and mist and keep on fanning.

make sure you have some light in there somewhere.  and i would not recommend dunking any casing you have-tried it and it just doesnt work the same as cakes.  if you think its "extremely" dry then get a spray bottle with a fine mist and mist it for a long time-but not past the point where you can see water on the surface (=bad :frown: no shrooms after all)
