Honestly dude, you are WAY over thinking this thing. it's mushrooms not rocket science. casing mixes change from person to person. personally i don't use a casing layer anymore as i find them to be very messy and hard to clean off the final product. i noticed you are using peat in your casing mix, as long as you balance the ph with those oyster shells to the species, you should be good.as for the light, i've had success without one but most people use a 12hrs on and 12hrs off. good luck

do what you are doing, your on the right track there. i would also have the light on for 12 hours a day. that is unless you have the light of a window for your little guys.
i use and like the casing layer, it has increased my output tremendously. i don't find it hard to clean off neither, just wait until they are dry and it scrapes off pretty easily.
ohh, so i don't think you are overthinking it, i'll bet you have great success taking all precautions because of it. i'm sure if everyone of us did our research and thought about it before we actually did it then there would be alot more successes.
good luck to ya
peace  :smirk:
