Patching q

How deep should the patch be. AFOAF knows he is supposed to cover the myc poking through, but should it be just enough so you can't see the myc anymore? Or maybe more than that?

Add just enough casing material to cover the exposed mycelium.

dont patch too many time and dont pack it down or mist it too much or your headed straight to the land of OverLay.  noone likes overlay.  not even nymphos. :jester:

if you use perlite humid. surrounding a casing, how often would u think misting would be neccesary? the casing size is like 12" x 12" or 14" x 14" tops?

as often as... it needs it. learn to look at your casing and tell when it looks dry.

it's super easy to learn when it's doin' good with coco coir/verm. coir gets a lighter color as it dries... but it dries out pretty quickly. i'm not so sure about other stuff though... never used it. :\ i'm happy with coir/verm.

you didn't even tell us what your casing layer is made out of.

yeah you can kinda tell when it is getting dry, make sure you have sprayer with a very fine mist like an atomizer, and dont spray at the casing spray up and let the mist fall down on it.  keep the rh up and you should have to mist a whole lot. :jester:
