Yup, but depending on some things.  In fact, here's a few quotes from the 50/50 tek...

As a general rule.. you do not want to mist your casing during this colonization period.. provided you have adequate humidity and fresh air. The ideal humidity for casings is 82% -92%. The reason you dont want to be misting your casing soil..during this period is because water condensation build up on the mycleium is not good.. it will slow the growth down of he mycelium and possible introduce contams easier

You want to start misting again after you have harvested your first flush....give it a real good heavy misting.. so the soil looks moist again.. but not saturated.... you shouldnt need to mist again until after the next flush.. and so on. Now this is not written in stone...

you may need to light mist the soil every few days becuase the soil dries out faster.... so the rule to follow.. is if your casing soil looks real dry....starts changing color and getting a real light dried out soil look..then go ahead and give it a light misting.

I hope that helps!!!!!;)

OK.

Now it is time to PANIC!!  You have a big problem.  At any moment now, giant pissing lemurs will invade your room, rape your furniture and sieze all of your precious blooming mycelium.  You're fucked.

All your hard work and waiting will be for nothing...because like me, you cannot STOP thinking about them for long enough for them to grow on their own, which they will pretty much do.

:shocked: I've got to get out of my house but now they won't let me leave.  help!?!

is the top casing layer pretty much colonized? normal light will intiate pinning. just make sure your temps are not like at 80 degrees are above. they will do great at 75 degrees...

thanks for the input everyone...yeah, it's my first time doing this shit and i guess i'm paying WAY too much attention to them. i'd just hate to waste all the time and effort i've put into them. anyway, now that i know that everything seems normal i'll leave them alone. thanks
