Is this overlay? (pics)
    #4248996 - 06/02/05 06:05 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am curious as to whether the casing as seen in the pictures below is a victim of the Treacherous and Ungodly Overlay. I've never seen overlay before, and the only pics of overlay in the Casing FAQ are horrible b&w images.

The casing is a 60/40 mix, and is sitting in a PMP. The humidity is high - consistently in the 90s - and I wasn't sure if this could contribute to overlay possibilites.

I doubt its overlay, but I don't recall having seen those "strands" before.

Casing has been in terrarium for a bit under a week, and as you can see, there's little/no pinning.

Thanks in advance!

Looking good. Keep that casing misted until you can visibly see condensation on the surface. Fresh air exchange, lighting, and wait.

actualy that is perfect, misting will knock down the mycelium which is recomended. It doesnt get better then that

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

yeah looking real good.

overlay is more like when the top of the casing looks like the outside of a cake.

Yours looks perfect.

overlay-


If your casing starts looking like that then you need to worry.

Is misting nec. with such high humidity? And supposing I mist, should I really mist till there's visible condensation - isn't that what causes overlay?

I don't mean to be contradictory, just trying to get a grasp - thanks!

Oh - p.s. - is it safe to mix grain/brf colonized substrate in the same casing?
