Healthy Casing? (Pic)

Here is a shot of my current casing that is taking forever, and I just wanted some input from you guys regarding this slow pinner. This is the 14th day in the fruiting chamber.

1 pint jar cased whole ala 9er tek, cased in bottom half of milk jug with 60/40 Verm/Coco with a ph buffer added for correct ph range. Top casing layer was about 1/4", at day 7 I covered with another 1/4" casing layer when mycelium showed through entire top layer. I believe this to be a major mistake now, as it is obviously taking forever. Oh well, lessons learned.

It remains at a steady 75 degrees, is fanned several times a day. Misting is done correctly to "near saturation" as per the "pinning strategies" thread. Currently also receiving 12 hours light on, 12 off. Also note: pleasent mushroom smell coming from casing layer, contams not a suspect yet. At least that I can see from the top that is.

Any suggestions?

To find a place to live between the negatives and positives.

Wet that down ASAP to "near saturation" so the casing surface GLISTENS with moisture. You'll find pin will soon follow :wink: GL
