First casing with 50/50 mix
    #3887193 - 03/08/05 02:25 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Ok so here are my first PF style jars nearing full colonization. They were inoculated on 2-4 with Blue Meanie and left at about 80 degrees... no lower.



Around 4 weeks later I made 3 casings by crumbling 2 cakes into 12"x8"x6" trays. They have about 1/2" damp verm, then the substrate, and then topped with 1/2"-3/4" 50/50 peat/verm mix. The substrate was left to promote myc growth for 24 hours. 1 I started fruiting before the other 2 which are still incubating right now.



The first casing seems to have stopped its mycelium growth. Is this because pinning is about to start? The temp is 72 and humidity is between 85 and 98 and fanning about 3 times a day.



This is the latest picture of the first casing which seems to be doing pooprly for the last 9 days. I will post the other 2 casings as soon as I put them in the fruiting chamber and if anyone wants to see their incubation pix I got them... they seem like they'll do a lot better too.

Yea bro, you got some overlay, you dont want the mycelium fully growing on the outerness of your casing, you want to just be able to see the mycelium through the casing layer so to speak...  It will still fruit, just give it light plenty of air exchange and love :wink:

Yea I was worried about that overlay. Thanks for the advice, this is my first time so I can use the input. Here are the pics of my other 2 that are still being incubated... I'm going to patch them later today. My question is, should I put them in the fruiting chamber right after I patch to prevent overlay again??? Also, you want the top layer to be near saturation right? Just not too wet? Thanks a lot for the info I need it!
