I’ve been relying on YouTube other people’s pictures and numerous guides. But I keep doubting myself on my first tub. I let it colonize an extra day after adding the substrate and when I went in this morning I saw some yellow exudate ( or what I think is that). I’m going to attach pictures.  I plan on laying down my casing later today. I don’t see any baby pins on the surface yet. So I guess my questions are. Is this liquid an issue and what can I do to solve it?  And when I’m laying down my casing layer should I be waiting to see some sort of pins before I even think about casing it?  I’m also probably forgetting questions so if I have more thanks for being here yall

The yellow fluid is called metabolites. They are the digestive enzymes of cubes.

They are used on a microscopic scale for digestion, when it builds up and pools like that its a good indicator that there is bacteria in your sub.

You can soak it up with a paper towel or just toss your casing over it, shouldn't make a difference either way.

When to case is entirely preference.

You can case right away or wait a few days.

If you're growing cubensis a casing in such a tub is more of a risk then it does good to the yield (that is in my experience). If you want to get casing experience it makes sense ofcourse, but if your just looking for a good yield fruiting without one is also fine :smile:
You can even still add it after the first flush.

Goodluck!

Read all the TEKs experiment and decide what works best for you. Grows of B+ and GT I found that casings didn’t really help at all.

Weather or not a casing is beneficial to you depends largely on your environment.
Mine is incredibly dry and there is a clear difference when I case


All that being said a top layer of coir at spawn often works just as well
