When is it too late to patch a casing showing signs of overlay?
    #4026323 - 04/07/05 03:10 PM (13 years, 21 days ago)

After 3 days in the incubator (at 86 degrees), I noticed the mycelium poking through the casing layer a bit in various areas, so I patched it and birthed it (at about 70 degrees in the terrarium). This is my fourth casing. It was birthed two days ago, and today I walk in to find thick little puffs of mycelium poking through about 15% of the casing layer--unlike the wispy strands that slowly and evenly rise above the surface that I've observed with my other casings.

So I patched those areas. But is it already too late? Should I expect to see some overlay in the final product? When is it too late to patch a casing showing signs of overlay?

Thanks

to directly answer the post question, once you have overlay, there is no patching... overlay is a dead layer of mycelium that will prohibit further mycelial growth from coming up under it, therefor it must be caught before it's too late

scratching is when you break up that overlay, remoisten and case and incubate till ready to fruit

Dammit.  :mad2:  Oh well, at least the overlay is fairly minor.  I guess I just wont get an even pinset/maybe lower yield.

actually i think you did the excatly right thing. You dont have overlay you just have myc that is alive and colonizing your casing layer. You should patch until you get an even amount of myc poking up all over your casing or until pins form. Least thats what i would recomend for a good pinset
