help please!
    #556837 - 02/19/02 11:55 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

question 1: I've got two trays of B+ on horse dung. First flushes are done....and got about 2 ounces dry from the two combined...all the mush grew fro the sides of the tray though...big shrooms too! How do I initiate a second flush...do I need to rehydrate the tray or something....??? And how do I get fruits from the top of the tray without casing them.?

question2 : I have a third tray B+ on horse as well....cased this one with straight verm. Pins everywhere..but most fruits seems to be very small compared to other two trays.... any ideas about why this is?

Overlay is the condition which results when mycelium has been allowed to completely cover the casing surface. It is caused by prolonged vegetative growth temperatures, high CO2 levels, and excessive humidity. If overwatered, the overlay will become matted, or, will form a dense, dead layer of cells on the casing surface.

A casing showing signs of overlay will begin to shrink and pull away from the sides of the container. It will also become unreceptive to water, and puddles may form on the surface after misting. If any pinheads form, they will likely do so at the edges of the casing. Most of the pinheads will abort, and only a few mushrooms will fully mature. Once this has happened, the casing layer really isn't a casing layer anymore. It is no longer serving it's three main functions, and has in essence become a second layer of non-nutritious substrate.

Question 2 may be because of lack of moisture
