Good advice above.
Jk touched on the most important thing IMO, moisture! When fruiting shallow subs it is paramount to consistently keep up with the correct balance of moisture and microclimate, especially with cased grain. I often grow like this for testing cultures or just getting a quick grow done for various reasons. And I utilize a somewhat open air growing approach for the most FAE as possible. So I always case and mist accordingly.
Back in the day, cased grains were recommended and how I actually grew my first crop. It works just fine, but you really have to be mindful of the moisture content whether you are using the Rez effect or not.

And as said above, keeping them under your bed isn’t the best idea. And colonizing in the dark is old outdated info. It doesn’t hurt a thing, but light from the get go has been proven to be beneficial for all stages of growth.
How often are you misting the casing layer? IMHO, running and maintaining a casing layer is an art form, which I strive to get better and master with every grow.
Good vibes my friend.
Thanks man! I mist and FAE 3-4 times a day. I’ll keep it open more if needed. Would I grow a bigger crop with a deeper tub? I’m down to try anything new.
