Overlay Question
    #4092773 - 04/24/05 09:13 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

My first time casing, I'm using popcorn tek, and have the casing lying on a bed of perlite in tubs. I've been giving it light since it went into the fruiting chamber. I don't have anything to read humidity levels, but I'm assuming it's pretty good since water isn't dripping down the sides, but there is a good amount of condensation. So far, both casings have mold all over the TOP of the casing, and one has big poofs of mold that looks like pieces of cauliflower. There are also lots of rhizomorphic mycelium with little puffs (small but definately bigger than a pinhead) of mycelium growing on the top of them. My question is, do I have overlay, or the beginning of it, and if so, should I scratch the casing? Oh, and the big cauliflower stuff isn't brown or yellowing, it's just poofy and bright white, but it still looks really thick.

it is probably forming knots. let it works its magic for a few days and you will know for sure.

Even with all the poofy mycelium on top of the casing? I can barely see casing anymore, it's all mycelium. Also, the poofy balls on the strands of mycelium that are popping up, are about an 1/8 in. wide.

you said yourself it wasn't discolored. deep scratching should be used only as a last resort. all the symtoms you described sure sound like knots to me.
