My First Casing
    #3956136 - 03/22/05 10:55 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I just recently started my first casing. Im using straight verm for the mix and now its on the second day and you can already see the mycelium peaking through the surface. Heres a pic-


Is everything going well or is there anything that I should do at this point? Also when do you think it will start to pin?

Does that look dry to anyone else?

Or is the verm just really course?

should be less then a week as long as the myc has begun to col. the casing layer. it's funny- there is such a fine line between overlay and ideal time to fruit.

keep those air exchanges going

what is your R/H like?

it is relative humidity; if you shoot to maintain one for casings, it is 92%

most will tell you it is better off higher, then you lower it while you are fruiting

well i dont know the humidity level i dont have a hygrometer. I also have a cake in the terrarium. Heres a pic of the whole setup-

I know the humidity is high because of the foggy sides of the chamber

Yes, a 1/2 inch casing layer is about the minimum. With a cake and a casing in the same fruiting chamber one of them is not going to be happy. Either the casing will get too much humidity, or the cake won't get enough. Good Luck.

They can go to pinning under high humidity, after they pin you need to lower it, they get plenty of moisture from the casing layer. I believe the added humidity can lead to overlay.

What is overlay and how is it bad? Will any shrooms grow at all?

Check it out in the Growing guide. It will explain everything to you.

In a nutshell, it's when the mycelium totaly colonizes the casing layer, and hence, you have no more casing layer.

Well I look at the flat cake tek and it seems like it is overlayed on purpose. The casing cant pin when too much mycelium grows?
