Overlay and other questions

hey, i looked some, maybe not enough, but i couldn't find anything on overlay, could someone explain to me what it is, why it is bad etc, etc, i also was wondering if i could use pastuerized compost for a casing layer, should i mix it with vermiculate (after having sterilized the vermiculate)?

overlay is a layer of dead myc on top that forms a kind of "mat" that will not pin.

Here is a good write up on overlay
http://www.shroomery.org/index/the/default/par/23449

Here is some info on casing

I personally use the 50/50 verm/peat but am going to experiment with coir/verm as well.

Use whichever method you are the most comfortable with.

good luck!

Overlay can also result from initiating pinning to late. BTW overlay is by no means "dead" it is very much alive. :wink: GL guys
