I just looked at my texture job this morning and its just flaking off when you touch it. Did I not wet it enough or was the stucco beneath not accepting that finish stucco? Does it harden more over time?

I've found it good for patchwork once you get used to it. Probably best to do a fair bit of practice first.
Best to get the base coat almost level with the finish and let it get bone dry, as if it's a bit damp the Tyrolean coat tends to run a bit.
The bigger blobs tend to come out first.
It's only a cheap gun and you can pay a lot more for one, but I only do patches as it's normally the plasterers job here.

What mix did you use. It normally sticks once it been on for a while. it should harden up in time. You might have put it on a bit thick.

I used the quickrete finish stucco
Its been on for 24hrs. Should I have wet it as it was curing?

Shouldn't need to wet it. There is a Tyrolean mix you can get, but I usually mix my own with sand/cement.
