Casing: will it get pins or overlay??
    #2272934 - 01/25/04 11:34 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

So I've decided tried my hand at casing. I made a casing using a BRF/verm cakes as substrate (approx 1.5 inches) and 100% coir as the casing layer (approx 0.5 inches).

I placed it into the incubator at 83-85 degrees for a week until I could just faintly see mycelium coming through. I didnt bother patching since it was rather even.

Now I have had it in the fruiting chamber (99% RH, 71-73 degrees) for 4 more days and it has continued (or looks as if it has continued) incubating and the mycelium is now fairly visible all over the surface. I have been fanning two or three times daily at the least.

What happens now? How far can I let the mycelium proceed before it starts becoming overlay? and shouldn't I be seeing pins by now or very soon??

as long as the myc is fluffy you have nothing to worry about.
you'll be seeing knots soon and pins not long afterwards.
