1st casing pic.
    #4123583 - 05/02/05 04:00 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

this is my first casing. I crumbled, incubated 24 hrs. then cased w/ jiffy mix. put it back in the incubator for 3 days in wich i cased twice.its been in fruiting box for 6 days, and i'v done no patching since its been in there. just misting w/ h2o2/h20.



questions:
o.k. you guys have got me this far. :thumbup: hows it look?
do i stop misting when it pins?
what am i looking for next( i hear talk of knotting?)or will i just see pinning?
and finally, should i have been patching in the last 6 days?

thanx for everybodys help both directly and indirectly! :grin:

Should have taken an overhead pick a lot closer, it's very hard to see whats going on but from the looks of it you have overlay. I would patch up the myc spots or just do a whole new casing layer.

if I where you, I'd put tin foil over the sides of your casing container so you don't get piners on the sides. You want them on top!

i'v got black tape on the sides to block light.
anyone else, is this true? the dreaded overlay! if so than i guess i should have been patching this whole time. the reason i didnt patch is because i thought the object was to get the myc. to the top surface @ about the same time. also, iv' read that people patch once then put it out to fruit and bingo. i'll try to go get a better pic.

Try patching those really white area's. Your not in overlay, yet! What are your temps, humidity? You can still get some babies out of this.

yea, you really might want to add some some light patching to those white spots TODAY!! Everything else seems fine, 12/12 lighting right?


Edit:

Also, try to get a bigger Resolution picture... look in the options in your camera menu.

when its completely colonized the casing layer, but then again even before that can eb considered overlay, lightly patch all areas

yea, it's when the myc. takes over your casing layer... which is starting to happen to your casing.

patch very lightly and good luck. next time, you can initiate pinning earlier, just when you see the mycelium at the VALLEYS of the casing soil.

:rolleyes:

From what you said about timeframe, you should be pretty close to pinning. At this point I say to just let it go. BTW, it's not overlayed.
