was this a good move anyone?

hey what's up guys? a couple of my terrariums began to have an issue with overlay after the first flush, so today i tried to get rid of it. on the first one, i used a fork, but only grazed at the surface as to not disturb the mycelin network under the casing. i tried my best to push as much to corner as possible and then removed the scrapings with a spoon, and on the second i tried a single side razor blade, once again, only lightly grazing as if i was shaving, and did the spoon thing again. all three items were carefully cleaned w/ anti-bac. soap and then wiped with rubbing booze. further i also did this using the oven lid as my working environment. (sorry if its long winded, just wanted to express i tried to be extra sterile.) question is now, is this a good idea, (growth was slow anyway) i gave a light peroxide/water misting too. anything else to do? or do i deserve a smack upside the head for the whole process, if so why please?

well, the good news is i doubt you will disturb your casings horribly if you were sterile
bad news is that, IME overlay is not a huge problem for cubies
i have seen many pics of casings that were completely white with myc
that fruited fine
on the other hand, stamet's MMGG has a pic of cubies fruiting where you can't even see myc on the surface of the casing
my FOAF has never experienced negative results b/c of overlay
so, in summation:
not a horrible loss, but prob not completely neccesecary

hey thanks man, i really appreciate the quick reply. the only reason i did it was b/c there's barely been any activity goin on in there except for a sparse big one, and a couple small aborts. kinda like a last ditch effort b4 i start that chamber all over again.

just give it a little while
before you give up on it

True overlay will not fruit FYI it is a stroma (veg only) type growth. Now I've seen totally cover casings that were just totally colonized with no overlay, one needs to learn the difference :wink: Now I'm hoping you realize that almost 100% of the time there is a lag between the havest of a flush and the next flush, the myc needs to buildup strength to put forth another flush. After a flush you need to patch any substrate that is showing and mist it to field capacity "near saturation" and wait a week or so then the activity should pickup again. Sometimes on heavy flushes I need to recase just like a giant patch and cover with Saran wrap to allow CO2 to build up along with keeping it dark for 3 days and then initiate pinning once again this has given me some very nice additional  flushes also.
