at that stage with a myc spread like that afoaf patched and put right into the terrarium. but i'm not sure if afoaf was correct in doing so because it was reported that after a few days myc growth has been pretty minimal.

Yes, you can open it to check on it. Just make sure that you are clean about it. Wear clean clothes and wash your hands and you should be okay. You myc is established so you be surprised at how contam resistant your casing is.

I usually patch and fruit or give another day its something you will get a feel for
with pure verm casing its super contam resistant since its basicly a really fluffy rock so just dont jam your dirty fingers in there or anything

As it has been said try and be clean when you are handling the casing before it goes into the chamber,but you dont have to be crazy about it. Misting the casing with a dilute h2o2 solution is just fine up until you are getting pins. You dont have to worry about increasing chances of aborts until your casing has pins. This should also answer your question about helping to prevent contams before the casing layer is colonized...The h2o2 will help. It is very true about straight verm being the least problematic of the casing methods so that would help too.

Your myc will usually continue to colonize the casing layer for a couple of days once you put it into the chamber so if you have myc popping through here and there across the casing you should be ready to pop it into the chamber and induce pinning. IMHO about 40% or so of the casing layer colonized means time to fruit!


Good Luck!
MYKEY
