Very undecisive. Please help!
    #611899 - 04/18/02 02:06 PM (16 years, 6 months ago)

I have 3 trays cased with 50/50+ for over a week. One is showing some colonization, and I've been patching it as it goes along. The other two have a spot here and there but basically no growth that I can see. The casing on these is thicker than on the prevoius one.

This morning while searching for posts on casing, I saw one that said: "Don't patch, induce pinning at the first sight of white."
So I reduced temperature, exposed them to light, fanned the hell out of them.
About forty minutes later, in the shower: "Oh my gawd! Is this right?". So put put them back at 85 deg. and tin foiled them.

Anyway, This being the first time I do this, I am at a loss of what step should I take next. I've been recomended to wait, to deep scratch, to induce pinning.
BTW the strain is PESA.

Some advice would be very much appreciated.
Thanks

what substrate? are they cased pf cakes? did you crumble or cut cake?

I have 3 casings. The first two were cased eight days ago. Colonized cow manure (it colonized very fast) with a layer of home made50/50+. Two days later, a thin layer of Dr. Bluethumbs casing was added. Three days after that, some mycelium poked through and was patched with more casing. Today, a couple of spots are peeking out. They have not been patched.

The other tray was cased 6 days ago with Blue's 50/50+. This one is showing better growth and has been patched twice, including today.

I would really love some advice on what to do, if anything at all.
Thanks.

you're doing exactly right. let them colonize the casing layer about 50% then initiate pinning. different strains colonize at different speeds. you sound like you ae on the igt track
peace!
