When will my casing start to colonize?
    #2019376 - 10/18/03 01:00 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I cased 2 days ago and I am now just waiting until I can start seeing the mycelium colonize the surface. How many more days until I should begin to see the colonizing ontop taking place?

Humidity: 90-100%
Moisture: 4-5 (moisture meter)
Temp: 78-80f
Light: Pitch Black
Air: 0 times daily

What did you use as a casing layer? How deep it is? How deep is the substrate layer?

With an half inch of 60/40 coco coir casing layer incubating at 85F, I usually see a lot of mycellium after 4 days.

It will need some air exchange for fruiting.

Casing mix: 60% vermiculite/ 40% peat moss
The casing bottom layer: 1inch
Substrate/vermiculite: 1/3 inch
Top layer: 1 inch

I looked on the side of my casing and the mycelium seems to be creeping up the sides, so it should also be creeping up in the center too, prolly ill be seeing spots tomorrow. I know it will need some air for fruiting, and I will also be giving it light (1hr every 6 hours = 4hrs a day).

Ps. Great avatar.
