i'm not an expert on caseing but I think that is only used on one (or if more, a few) caseing methods.

No, deep scratching is used to speed up colonization of the casing layer. To initiate fruiting, you need fresh air, light, humidity 90-95%, and a lower temp than used for colonizing. Several people here suggest taking frozen bottles of water and placing them in the terrarium to lower temps, thus initiating pinning. All of the above conditions are done to simulate the natural growing conditions of mushrooms in nature.

Yeah, I've read that deep scratching is more for evening out the eventual pinning, not to initiate it. I've never personally used it but I am going to try it next time.

If you have no pins stamet says it is okay to scracth a little. This is if your "mountains and valleys" have kind of become smooth cause of moisture. In other words, does it look like you just spread it on there or does it look like water has effected it to where it looks slightly like mud. This is hard to explain buy I hope you get the idea. Remember, dont do it if you have pins already.

Wonder if you can trip off foot fungus.
