This is my remedy for my pending overlay problem. I know you all warned me. Even with the warnings I was caught off guard.

I started by scratching the visible mycelium lightly. After scratching, I added another layer of casing. I packed the casing lightly to make it a little more compact.

Notice the immediate blueing of the mycelium.

question ... how deep are those pans and how deep are you making your substrate layers?

Substrate is 3/4-1 in., casing is 3/4 in.

This casing to substrate ratio is a higher than should generally be followed. The PR strain grows very rhizomorphically and overtakes casing layers very fast as you can tell by the previous pics.

Puerto Rican casing depth [Re: Joshua]
    #547955 - 02/11/02 01:50 PM (22 years, 4 months ago)

Puerto Rican mycelium is INSANELY aggressive. I know a guy (not me -- this really is a different guy, honest) who routinely uses 2 inches of coco coir as a casing layer, and he STILL sometimes gets overlay. The good thing is, Puerto Rican mycelium colonizes so quickly and thoroughly that contams don?t stand a chance.

But, this guy (who REALLY is not me, honest) says that the potency of Puerto Ricans makes it all worthwhile.

Puerto Rican Fridge [Re: Joshua]
    #550663 - 02/13/02 10:49 PM (22 years, 4 months ago)

I am getting casing colonisation again. This time I covered the tray with foil and put it in the fridge, I think I?ll leave it there for at least 12 hours. Any suggestions on how long to leave it?

Here is the pic:

It?s been in the fruiting chamber since I re-cased it. By puting it in the fridge I hope to slow colonisation and initiate hyphal knot formation.

Geez man, that is some gnarly ass mycelium growth...

I?ve heard the PESA?s are like that too...and to tell you the truth my jars of PESA?s colonized 90% within 7 days..!!!

I just made a straw tray yesterday, and Im already seeing the mycelium starting to colonize it. Should I pack on a deep casing layer? The straw/substrate mix is only about 4 inches compacted. How much casing you think? The PESA?s seem to be out of control...AHHHHHHHHhhhhhhh!!!

I?m no expert, but I?d say 1.5-2 inches of casing should do the trick. Do not pack the casing layer on. Just lay it down and gently pat down.To initiate a good pin set you may want to cold shock, this will slow down casing colonisation and help to induce fruiting.

Good luck!

As a general rule, the casing layer should be 1/4 substrate depth.

Yeah I was thinkin around 1.5 to 2 inches myself. Im just going to case with coir, then incubate for 2 days and then throw it in the fridge for a few (12) hours and then in the chamber it goes...

Im personally not even going to wait until I see mycelium on top. Maybe just a fuzz or something to make me tthink its close

Damn this shit is unstopable. I just turned off my heat in my fruiting chamber. If I get overlay I am just going to let it go and see what happens.
