Can you get a close up? It looks dry. I also don't see even the slightest bit of humidity on the sides.

Here is a tip straight from the 50/50+ caser himself, Ryche Hawk.

"A tip on humidity:
If you don't have a humidity gauge, one sure way my friend has found to determine humidity from looking at his gauges, is by judging the condensation on the walls of your grow chamber. For casings you want around 82%-92% humidity. If you see the walls of your grow chamber just sweating away with condensation and they're dripping constantly, then you more then likely have 100% humidity, this is fine for cakes but not casings.

To judge 82%-92% humidity you should only see light condensation on the walls with the occasional dripping. This is after some fresh air has been pumped into your chamber and you let it sit for an hour or two. Also, those cheap plastic gauges you buy from pet stores, they don't work. Even most of the ones sold by cigar stores are made by plastic companies. For a good analog meter, cigar stores carry one made by Cigar Perfect for $12. This model is made by an instrumental company, and not a plastic company and works well."

Give that a try.  :cool:

your casing material should glisten slightly in the light.
if your humidity is ideal, it shouldn't dry out on you too often.

I would have to agree with others that it looks slightly dry. I belive you want your casing to have that glisteny look to them, almost enough water to saturate it, but no standing water puddles.

The question you need to answer is when is the last time you misted it, and how often? If you are misting three times a day, no its not dry. But if you are misting once a day, or once every two days, lets get that mother WET!

I agree you can obviously increase the moisture level by spraying with your peroxide water bottle. One of my casings was pretty dry hardly any humidity I misted twice a day and still got a nice flush. Took a little longer than normal though.

Hmmm, sometimes picks without flash might make the casing look more dry than it really is.
The correct thing to do would be reading the Rh with an hygrometer and working from there. If it is really dry you should increase misting like it has already been said. As it looks, everything is ready for primordia formation, but it will require for you to give the appropriate conditions.

Here is something i have learned recently about overlay. If you think "this might be overlay" IT IS DEFINITLY NOT and will grow just fine. If you think "awwwww shit, that is some fucked up looking overlay" then it MIGHT be. Overlay looks like styrofoam. Healthy mycelia poking through isnt overlay.
