casing overlay looks like ?
    #828459 - 08/19/02 04:45 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

a friend of mine made a casing with coir. When the myc as showig through about half the coir, he cold shocked. Now a couple days later the surface is 90% colonized and the myc is still fuzzy looking, Will it be allright? It looks like its starting to knot up, but doesn't know exactly what overlay looks like. He says he mists the surface to keep it moist and its at high humidity and around 78 degrees.
any help ?

Why do people case with coir if it has a tendency to overlay? Is it really any better than straight verm, other than being easier to tell when it's dry?

It certainly is better if you ask me
But that`s just me.
I have realised now that a straight coir casing isn`t good enough.
A verm/coir/oyster casing layer is way better.
I find with coir that the casing layer is quite brittle if it starts becoming too dry.

If its getting fuzzy you need to lower the CO2, by adding more air. IF the wole thing is white, it could be overlay, can you post a pic. bluhoney

I believe I read somwhere you should put the spray bottle on the finest mist possible and spray the bottle pointing up (away from the casing)... while spraying you should move it left and right until casing is moistened...

I think Anno or somone posted a big tread awhile back on how to "properly" mist your casing.. you may want to do a search also..

Moe, do you think we could get some color pictures of overlay in the faq? This isn't 1974 ...

1974 - the year of the Diamond Dogs...
Overlay / stroma often has more to with the type of mycelia - although some aggressive strains like pes amazonians and Puertos like to do it, cotteny mycelia often prefers fully colonising your casing rather than fruiting. Overlay is not a problem until the mycelium completely covers the casing and inhibits the watering - if your worried give it a scratch.
Coco coir is cheap and is fine as a casing - 50/50 is still the best casing imo!
