What temperature is your incubator running at? Some casings can take a little over a week to colonize. You shouldn't pack your casing layers!

In the end, my friend, we will all be together again.

he just packed the bottom layer. The temp is about 69. Does the myco colonize the bottom layer and the top as well??

Oh, okay, that should be fine then. Casings are used more as a water reservoir and to provide the substrate with a humid microclimate. You need to increase your temperature about 15 degrees.

Depending on your casing, the mycelium will sometimes colonize the bottom as well...but not with just vermiculite.
