I know the answers to these questions but could you answer them anyways so I could prove a point please?

1. is overlay only a bad thing when it is matted or is it just a bad thing in general?

2. do cakes = overlay?

3. under ideal conditions (ie in an incubator, with right substrate prep, tape removed) do pint jars fail to finish a lot more than half pint jars?

thanks in advance

"1. is overlay only a bad thing when it is matted or is it just a bad thing in general?"

Well overlay .........is aMAT it tight bunched up mycelium that water cannont go through.

2. NO


3. That depends on how much water have in your substrate and if your substare
drys out from a incubator that uses drying heat like a heat pad. etc.

Make sure you substrate has enough WATER to finish incubation, and if you are using a DRY incubator make you air holes small ..about the size of a pencil.

If you have a wet one, you can use bigger holes have quicker growth, and your substrate wont dry out as easy.

But I have always use a heat pad or my hot water tank.
(and smaller holes)

If you have the cash I would say build a "wet" incubator.
