solo shroom

Recently, three casings underwent deep scratching surgery and aluminum foil was placed over the casing and left to incubate for a few days. About 3-4 days later they were placed into the terrarium after moderate mycelium growth. All three casings were suffering from overlay yet had a few pins forming before the surgery, but anyways one of the casings has a mushroom growing on the side and it is roughly about 1 1/2" tall and there are no other shrooms just nice white mycelium. Should this be picked when mature and will it be ok to consume? Just seemed odd to me I guess.

Yeah, it's good. Sounds like you're waiting way too long to put your casings into fruiting. I'm guessing you're probably using coir considering your substantial overlay problem. You may want to try a peat moss based casing to avoid that. Also, I think it's often better to just try and fruit without scratching...You'll usually get pins on top of the white fluff whereas when you scratch, you are causing significant damage to the mycelium. Good luck...

Its v/brf and i was getting impaitent with the overlay problem. The pins showed up about day 11 on one and 13 on another and none on the last and then 10 days later they were still under-devolepod and the casings had pulled away from the sides and were completely white. These are showing better results so far so we'll see. Thanks for the advice.

So you're saying you cased PF cakes, right? You did use something as a casing layer on top of the substrate, right? Unless your terrerium is huge or you let your casing dry out a lot, it shouldn't be pulling away from the sides before the first flush. Sounds like a lack of moisture to me....

yeah there is a new sterilized casing layer on top and will spray casing and terrarium more often this time to ensure the casing stays moist. any other suggestions for this?
