Overlay question????
    #2997417 - 08/12/04 09:50 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I've been trolling through the post trying to figure out what overlay is?

If I have a WBS, poo, and straw bed it is all white.

If I case it on top with coir/vermiculite - that layer is brownish/grey.

If the white mycelium creeps up through casing layer and starts growing on top - is that overlay? And is that when you apply more casing over that overlay?

So should the shrooms just pop up through the verm/coir layer?

Thanks for any input!!

You want the mycelia to colonize the casing but not overtake it....just enough to where you can see it come up between the ridges. Overlay is a dense hard mat of dead mycelia. Look:
