I've tried casing a couple times before.
But now I'm thinking about going back to the casing.
One of the problems I've been having was the whole casing shrinking on me.
Causing light to leak into the side... which makes aborts... and die... and rot...
Is it a water problem?

Casings shrink, nature of the beast. Fill in the areas with moist verm.

casings shrink as they colonize and fruit. You could fill up the space with some casing material or verm, moist verm.

filling the space is not allways the best answer, especially on large deep trays. it can just make it harder to get your shrooms out, cause you to miss small ones that come out and don't make it to the top, gets verm all over your shrooms. etc.

on my tray cultures, regardless of specie, i mound the substrate. this means that the edges only have two inches of substrate or less, while the center can get as deep as eight inches. if they come up on the side, more power to them. they can be harvested there without too much difficulty.
