what do you mean it dies off? pictures would be super, super helpful on this one.

the myc grows and then dies? what kind of peat/lime are you using? too much lime could burn the hell out of the mycleium, chemicals in the peat could burn the myc too...

Has your casing been misted? If the casing layer is to dry, then maybe thats why its not colonizing. I definately agree with Zero on this one, it sounds like then lime might be killing off the myc...
