Casing stopped??
    #4051350 - 04/13/05 06:27 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Well my casing has been in fruiting mode for about 5 days and the mycelium has stopped growing on the casing layer. It is stuck like this-


Is this normal? Im misting everyday and have good air exchanges :confused:

Well I dont have an hygrometer so I dont know the humidity. I just recently started misting everyday because the casing layer started getting dry. Anyway that pic was from yesterday it looks pretty much the same today. Im using polyfill and I air out 2 times a day. Heres another pic-

I agree its probally just about to pin. Although if you misting your casing everday, which you probally dont need to, you may be screwing yourself as it does look like a little overlay. You may have to scratch that up some to get some pins if you dont see anything in a couple of days. Just look for the white dot / knots that are gonna form. Then you know you'll be seeing pins in no time.

Here I just took a pic from today. I noticed little dotes every were. Maybe there knots? It doesn't look like overlay to me-


Any opinions?

I remember hearing that the myc. will stop growing right before pinning starts.

I thought that misting helped curb the development of overlay?

That casing is not overlayed, keep doing what you're doing and be patient. My last project took 11 days to pin, and when it finally did it was spectacular.

Keep the casing material moist, like a light dew glisten.

You are fine, so long as it doesnt get dried out.

Be patient. You cannot PUSH pins out of a casing. They have to form up & do it - themselves.

Thanks for the help everyone. Here a little peep I just took-

It seems like the mycelium is evening out. Notice all those small little dots. I think my casing looks weird. Maybe its because I didnt pat it down?

....ahhh hurry up with the pinning! :frown:
