Think i messed up, pics
    #4042152 - 04/11/05 07:25 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Was this casing incubated too long? (5 days) I am having trouble getting pins to form. Any thoughts on what to do?

RH is to high. Expose to light & FRESH AIR EXCHANGE, otherwise you will have OVERLAY frosting.

Casing is about 1/2" thick or so, verm on bottom is also about 1/2" thick. Its "jiffy mix", RH is somewhere around 85 i think.. Light is on 12 hrs a day now.

I'd add a thin layer of casing material over this and get the temperature down a bit.
Other than that, wait. And spray any aggressive strands of mycelium that are going to begin growing through the newly applied layer with water to knock it down.

Overlay is the thick layer of mycelium that develops on a casing that hasn't initiated pinning soon enough.  To put it more simply; the white stuff you see on the surface of the tray is borderline suffocating the case, and will likely prevent pins from forming (depending on the species of shroom that is being grown).  You really can't get rid of a bad case of overlay, since the mycelia (white stuff) is basically dead and nutrient-free.  The best way to handle it is to avoid it altogether by starting pinning at the right moment.

There is live and dead overlay. You have live overlay and bad. Treat the whole thing like a cake and fruit it out at 100% RH. You'll be okay, but the yield won't be anything special.
