What temps do you have it sitting in? Incubation of some sort is preferrable. Wait until you see the first signs of mycelium poking through the top, and fruit that puppy.

1" is really thick, you're going to be waiting awhile.  Anyways, keep on waiting!  :cool:

Not really, I can't possibly predict how long it will take mycelium to break your casing layer. For a 1/2" casing depth I usually wait 2-3 days on average to see first signs. I wish it was as easy as saying that 1 inch is double that, so expect to wait 4 days, but it's not. Many factors here.

On the lighter side of things (though this is not the desirable way to go)if you screwed up like I did and didn't even wait for the mycell to come through at all like I did my first casing (rookie got excited), they will take longer to fruit but the chances are still good all will be okay. 12 days later I had nearly 300 g dry, and 5 days later came the second flush around 200. Diver is da man though and gives you good advice....patience is a priceless virtue in this hobby. Have fun bro.
