Problems during Psilocybe Cubensis mushrooms growing
The process of growing psilocybin mushrooms is not only joy and pleasure. There are difficulties and failures. Sooner or later, every mushroom cultivator comes across them. Here we'll show you one of the most common problem in the growing process - overlay and all difficulties that come with it.
What is overlay?
Overlay (or mycelium overgrowth) - dense mycelium forms on the substrate surface and prevents the formation of primordium. As a rule, it arises from non-observance of the incubation time intervals or incorrect conditions during fruiting. Thus, the mycelium goes into a hibernation state. Substrate and casing layer, which are 100% colonized, are at such a risk.
How to recognize an overlay?
- Visually. It is a dense snow-white layer of mycelium resembling fluffy cotton clouds.
