I Think I Have A Problem With Overlay. Need Serious Help!!!
    #8813346 - 08/22/08 11:58 PM (9 years, 5 months ago)

This is my first time casing. The strains are Equador and Golden Teacher(1 tray each). I left the trays in the incubation area(a closet) for two days(or until mycelium just began to show in spots). After I introduced the trays to the fruiting chamber(a fish tank), mycelium continued to grow on top of the casing layer(50%verm/50%peat). Im sure this is due to high temperatures(about 80 degrees during the day). Im sure I am experiencing overlay but from what I understand this doesnt effect psilocybe cubensis too much. Is this true and if not, how do I correct the problem? I am already monitoring the temperature better. Humidity is fine(85-95%). Also, how soon after initiating pinning should I see pins? Again this is my first time casing, so any serious advice and not criticism will be appreciated.

Dont stress too much just make sure you give it lots of FAE, if all goes to plan you should see pins in 5 to 7 days

I think overlay is pretty rare.  Dont stress about it though, i fruited a tray a week ago and in 2 days the whole casing layer turned white, but it all turned out fine.

Try to raise your humidity to 95% or higher and provide plenty of bright fluorescent light, or light from a bright window nearby.  Overlay is extremely rare.  I've seen it no more than a dozen times in 36 years of growing.
