possibly overlay?
    #1937365 - 09/21/03 09:50 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

hello

afoaf has never ran into this problem before but here it goes...

afoaf cased with 10 parts cococoir, 5 parts vermiculite and 2 parts oyster shell a week ago...getting quite cottony looking mycelium growing on the top. doesn't look like cobweb mold at all (afoaf never seen it in real life just looking at pics on shroomery)...possibly overlay? the temp is 25C in the fruiting chamber and humidity is at 85-90%. should afoaf leave it alone or should afoaf deep scratch or case it with another layer of casing?

Let it go, make another tray. That way you can compare without too many variables in the game play. Then you'll arrive at your optimum state.

IMO I think it's too advanced in mycelium surface coverage. Never had one go that far. But that's the beauty of growing, you learn as it happens and nothing is written in stone.

I just looked at the bigger pic from the thumbnail, looks like over-lay, the heavy white and thick material, a mat like cover.

No, don't bin it. See what happens.

In terms of waste, not really. Shroom materials are cheap, running costs are low and shrooms are fast. Compare that to HID pot growing, this is light on the wallet...that's for sure.

Besides, this is (as you said) your first time in reals you've had an over-lay like tray, great opportunity IMO to get this personal experience gathered. It will pay off in the longer scheem of growing. You have to have drama to get to the results. :wink:

So study it, see where it goes as it will teach more than the boards. Experience is the best teacher.

afoaf is just pissed off since it's already been 3 years of flawless growing (cept for a couple of casings going down the drain due to neglect - contamination formed). afoaf will definately learn from this...possibly i will tell this afoaf to chill and not feel so bad... :grin:

3 years of no drama growing, that's a seriously good run frame. You can't complain about that. :smile:

That casing is definitely over colonized but it does not look overlayed yet. For a description of overlay, click here.

Don't scratch or otherwise fuck with the casing surface. Make sure your fruiting conditions are optimal and wait. It should still fruit nicely.
