casing layer not doing anything?
    #3160252 - 09/21/04 04:25 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Well over a week ago i put a 1/4 inch casing layer on some rye jars i had dumped into several little rubbermaid containers, and so far its just sitting there and nothing is happening.  I moistened the layer when i first put it together as the mycelium was very spongy and dry.  In two of the containers im afraid i may have cased a little too soon.  There were many individual grains, while having some white mycelium pieces on them, were not really colonized very well.  I used a 50/50 coco/verm casing mix and it seems slightly on the dense side...

could a casing stall/stop colonizing if there isnt enough water?  Should I be moistening it often... I have the sides taped up but i can peel it back and see that nothing is really happening in there.  the mycelium is not getting denser, and its not even starting to penetrate the casing layer.

Thanks for the help  :smile:

MIST ONLY WHEN DRY.... MAKE SURE IT CAN "BREATH"
