And there isn't any kind of bad smell, so that's another good sign.

an inch is fairly thick,
no surprise that nothing is visible after just 3 days.

Woohoo, I have rhizomorphic growth!

Not much, but enough to tell me my project lives.

I'll get some pix as soon as there's enough to show.

It's been eight days now and here's what my rhizomorphic growth looks like:

Does this look ready for the casing layer?

maby give it a few more days, even patch those 2 big spots a tad. the more even coverage, the more pins u will get, the more more shrooms u will get. the way it is now would probably give u 2 big old clusters then not much action elsewhere. shoot for a 'carpet of myc.' :)

see those little wisps toward the middle? you want those type of things evenly over the entire surface at least.

Ok, I'll patch any visible myc with my peat moss/calcium carbornate mix.

Thanks for the information.

Before casing that tray you want the whole sub to be colonized..
then you would apply the casing layer and as eternal said
you want the "casing layer" to be grown "into" by the mycelium then
on to fruiting..
