Pantera, I usually don't scratch that roughly, generally I simply insert a sterile fork and give it a slight twist. In your case, just add a little sterile casing material over the exposed spots and you will be fine. After you harvest your first flush add a little more casing to the areas that become barren where you removed your fruits. Enjoy.

Just curious- People are always saying to cover with a little sterile casing...

I've been sterilizing my verm/soil casing in the psi. cooker for about 30 min. Is there a faster way to do it if you just want enough to cover a few barren spots in your casing?

what if you don't sterilize your casing?

GT - Yes. I mix up 50/50 potting soil/vermiculite in a microwaveable mixing bowl. I add Brita filtered water and mix again. Then I put a paper towel over it and microwave it for maybe 4 or 5 minutes. It reaches high enough temperatures to kill the bacteria. But make sure to let it cool completely before spreading it over the mycelium! I did it too early and messed up a casing.

Peace and Love, Baby!

GT - I have the same issue with only needing a little replacement casing at a time (after the initial casing) Whenever I sterilize a batch of anything (substrate, LME solution, syringes, tools I will be working with) I will place a certain amount of casing in a couple 1/2 pint jars with a FP filter patch on it and that keeps the casing sterile until I need it for touch-up. Hope this helps a little.
