    The wax paper seems to be bringing up little mounds from the once flat substrate should I keep doing this and this is a good sign?

    All those lumps are those going to be clusters? Wax paper did that. Are big lumps clusters?

    It's possible, but that is some dry sub my man. You might get some survivors. What Tek are you using.

    It's really damp tho.. I noticed some really sweet pics on Instagram this one guy had, seemed like he was casing with just perlite, would that workout well? My humidity would be right.

    Must be the way the lights hitting it. I don't know about casing with perlite. Sounds experimental.

    Ive never seen anyone casing using perlite. Got any pics of a perlite cased tub or tray ? People use a vermiculite casing layer often. Make a few trays and do side by side experiment using a wax paper casing , perlite casing , 50/50 plus casing and see which performs the best. What are you growing ? If thats a reishi tray then you dont need a casing.

    Am I remembering incorrectly that folks used to lay cakes and blocks on beds of saturated perlite in a terrarium for fruiting?

    I was thinking monotub or tray. To me those cakes dont look like they have perlite on them...only below them.
