First time casing
    #844093 - 08/26/02 12:25 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Ok, first off, I read the faq but didn't get the answer i was looking for there. I made my first ever casing about a week and a half ago, the bottom casing layer is about 85% colonized and a few small patches of mycelium has peeked through the top casing layer, but then it just stopped. No contams, just halted growth. The conditions are perfect and have been since day 1. I did however take the casing out to fruit it, but then decided to let the top layer colonize a little more before fruiting it, the mycelium only pokes out in a few random spots. My other casing is doomed, green mold running wild like Hulkamania, lol. Anyway, did taking the casing out of my incubator to fruit temporarily halt growth, or is it doomed? Tell it to me straight, I can take it... kinda...

You should've waited until the substrate was more like 100% colonized before you cased it. A sudden halt of all growth sounds suspicious to me. Even though you say it's not contaminated, I suspect that might be the issue.

How is it you can see the bottom casing layer?

Let's not confuse truth with reality.
