deep scratching
    #2487185 - 03/31/04 03:30 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Is it ok to deep scratch if there are small signs of pinning. There are only a few pins on the side and a few randoms elsewhere. The casings have pulled away from the sides and are completely covered in a bright white mycelium and overlay is without a doubt present. I was wondering if you just deep scratch and then add a new casing layer and begin the incubation and fruiting process all over again? Also, is deep scratching the last resort to save these casings and produce fruits?

You could dig or scrape around the pins and the add casing layer and put back in the chamber, or do what you said, both should work.

Deep scratching it is then and the casing will receive roughly 1/8" of new casing layer. Another thing, when is the optimal time to place these in fruiting conditions. Should they be patched and then when the mycelium is peaking through evenly then put into the terrarium?

You know most people are gonna tell you to do exactly that. Myself I just wait till I see a decent amount of myc poking threw the casing layer. For me it doesn't need to be all even and stuff. Remember I am extremely lazy, that is the whole reason I came up with the Poorman's Pod
