Casing layer

The casing layer is a cover of humid material to apply over the colonized substrate. Although most mushrooms will also grow without a casing layer, it's wise to use one.

The casing layer keeps the substrate from drying, stimulates the forming of primordia and works as a water reservoir for the adult mushrooms.
