Overlay problem!
    #3888985 - 03/08/05 08:29 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

what is a good way to prevent overlay? I started fruiting my last casing once it was about 30% colonized. I usually patch at least twice, so the next time I patch, should I stick it right into the fruiting chamber? I know they say to wait until a little pokes thro, but I seem to have an overlay problem.



Here's my casing before patching.



and here is my casing after patching... now should I begin fruiting now to avoid overlay? Thank you for any advice I will really appreciate it.

How moist should my top layer be? Should I just patch and spray a mist over it until it seems to glisten and stick it in the terrarium? The spray won't mess up any mycelium unless it is showing right?

Getting the most out of your casings!, A pinning strategy. If that substrate was layed down properly and the casing layer as well it should be ready for the fruiting chamber! GL

yea thanks for the tips... tho I've already read that teck before I've read so many that the only thing that had my confuzzled was WHEN to fruit... some say to let it colonize a little some say NONE at all. SO this was is almost completely UNcovered with myc. I'm giving it a 12hour light cycle, fanning Hum. @ 95 and temp at 68. I'll try to keep everyone posted on it's progress. But SHOULD I PATCH THOSE REALLY TINY SPOTS OR LET IT FRUIT???





Also any input on the terrarium? Good? OK? Bad? ... pleas, no comments on the ghetto cut job for the window  :tongue:

You really need to take into account the myc's momentum this will come with experience. For now you'll want to get your fruiting temps up a bit 74-77F. this will make timing a snap! Otherwise at those cooler temps you will need to let it go longer before initiating pins 20-30% myc coverage in the valleys, when patching remember just enough casing material to just cover the myc no more all you want to do is stop any premature pinning. When people initiate pinning immediately when casing they are usually at the upper end of the optimal range even then I will always recommend placing back into the incubator for 2-4 days before initiating fruiting, this just coincides everything just a little better as far as optimizing your pinset.
