Top Layer Casing Question
    #3911101 - 03/13/05 01:14 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

This is my second case....My top layer of coir is being infiltrated by mycelium....however they are long white strands( over an 1/8th of an inch)sticking out every were...they are like in groups of ten or so all over the place....this looks different from my first case..What is this???? There is no brown cap at the end of these things.....

This is rhizomorph mycelium, this happens with coir often.

I like to spray down those strands to stop them from growing and possibly developing into overlay.

Rhizomorphic mycelium is very hearty also you will probably get a killer flush

I've personally had much better luck using coir as an addition to the substrate than as a casing material. Coir has lots of nutes and tends toward overlay if used as a casing. However, overlay isn't to be worried too much about, as cubes will fruit just fine from an overlayed casing. Just dunk between flushes.
