Overlay is bad. Mycelium is only supposed to colonize the casing layer a little bit(reach 'fingers' through it). Overlay is when it totally takes over. The casing layer becomes part of the substrate and defeats the purpose. You can no longer spray it because the mycelium won't let the water in, so it no longer lets add moisture to the mycelium.

Overlay = Bad


Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND.
Basically, it's made up of two separate words "mank" and "ind."
What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

Wonder had gone away, and he had forgotten that all life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.  -- H.P. Lovecraft "The Silver Key"

Overlay occurrs when mycelium is kept in the vegetative stage too long and the mycelium is allowed to grow up and onto the top of the casing. Often it occurrs when a new cultivator does not punch all of the pin initiation triggers...and ofcourse they don't get pinns. Typically the mycelium is held in the vegetative stage by having too high a CO2 level, or too high a humidity percentage. With most strains of cubensis...they will pin regardless of lighting...although better pin set and larger harvests are to be had when including light as an initiation trigger.

An advance condition of overlay is called "matting" and occurrs when you overwater during an overlay condition. Good Luck.
