What did you add to buffer the peat? If you used hydrated lime at 1.2 cups like in the Tek, just toss the whole damned tray as it's fried. The tek is all screwed up about the hydrated lime recommendation.

That shouldn't be too much a problem then. I too have had trouble getting the casing to colonize before. The reasons for that can be complex. For now just give it more time. If it doesn't make it by day 10, you should scrape off the casing mix down to where the mycelium made it and fruit the tray anyway. Do NOT try to recase it.
