Look at this casing

I'm wondering what could be wrong with this casing, why it hardly pinned at all... any ideas?

probably has to do with uneven mycelium growth, to prevent this in the future when the mycelium starts showing thru on the surface of the casing, just patch up the mycelium with a little substrate, it may take a little longer to colnize doing this but youll get an even pinset in the future

I need to go home and look more carefully, I was trying to keep the lid open for as little time as possible. I didn't notice any obvious discoloration, not enough to catch my eye, but in the picture there are some areas that don't look too good.

The bottom layer is verm, the substrate is wbs, and the casing is 50/50 peat/verm. Lighting is natural through the windows, as well as artificial at night sometimes. Air exchange via a coolmist setup; the exchange hole is covered in tyvek.

Hard to say. The hygrometer is unreliable. I can't afford a good one. But it should be high, between the intermittent coolmist and the perlite. Is it possible that it's too high?

It look like you're used Right hand spray mist over case laying and possible got too much water on up to left corner? I've heard mycelium don't like too much water on it and it will abort it in a short period of time. IF you're not hand spraying, I would suggest like GonzoCool said.

Is the casing layer dry? It will dry out if you don't mist it.

I think I see green mold all over the casing, unless it's just the lighting.
