1/4 of an inch to 1/2 of an inch would be fine I think,but you may want to wait on another answer.

no wim not sure about this, but im pretty positive that u have it backwords brotha lol... the 1-5" should be the BOTTOM layer, and after everyone wakes up and responds to my other posts, ill let u know for sure, cuz u will get these little ass shrooms that are very weak let me tell u LOL.. i ate a whole 35 grams wet (3.5g dry which is an 1/8) and it didnt do much.... well not like i expected anyways.. so, u might wanna hold off on yur casing for a couple mins

I love how some of the people around here answer every question regardless of whether they know what they're talking about or not.

Ok, your casing layer should be about 25% as deep as your layer of colonized substrate. 1/2" is very little, and that would mean that your casing layer should be 1/8". So, basically, just put enough on to cover the myc layer up. You could go up to 1/4" without a problem. Also, you don't need to use as much on the bottom. You should also use more colonized substrate next time.

Usually 1/4 of the substrate depth. IMO, the depth of your substrate is too thin.
Another thing, it?s not "problemo", it?s "problema"  :thumbup: :cool:
