That's got more rhizo than mine :frown: (I think)

Looks good though!  Looks about fully colonized to me.  I wait another couple days after mine looks fully colonized, then add the casing.

Looks like there is a tiny spot left?

I don't see the problem in putting sterile casing on bulk material
with a tiny uncolonized spot, considering both are pretty resistant to
contamination. I've done it without any problems (using coir & verm).
perhaps I just been lucky :smile:

Looks like it was colonized a few das ago and it's ok to put non-sterilized casing material on bulk substrates, fully colonized or not. Case it. It's ok to add the casing anytime after about 90% colonization, imo. Some growers even apply the casing material at the time they prepare and spawn the bulk substrate, but I feel it's best to wait.

Bah!  Must be more of that misinformation/outdated stuff you were talking about :wink:  I always thought you had to pastuerize/sterilize your casing although I never knew why since the substrate was fully colonized.  I think I will case today then :wink:
