April 12:

I have just returned from Easter break and came back to a bit of growth poking through the casing layer.  I have my tub-in-a-tub under my sterilite container, but shut it off over break as to prevent over-colonization.  I plugged it back in today so should be ready for lights in 5 days or so.  Here are the pics, nothing exciting.  I patched right after the pics.

you patch where the myc is showing before the rest of the casing layer right?

this is a great show!!

does popcorn spawn well into straw (i know u used WBS, just wondering)?

would you case with just coir, if not why not?

i have some bulk straw questions if someone could lend me a hand?

Yeah. You want all the myc. to colonize the fruiting surface evenly to get more even pinning. Popcorn does not have as many inoc. points as millet (wbs) so it won't colonize the straw quite as fast, but popcorn gets colonized faster. You should just use more spawn if you're really worried about speed. You can case w/ straight coir.

and Daywalker, that avatar is fresh indeed.

April 15 Update:

Hey Everyone, sorry for the lack up updates!  Right now I am just patching and waiting for my even myc to set in.  I am a day or two away from flipping on the lights! 

Remeber those cups I mentioned on the first page?  I never got them to my friends since breaks and everything else messed things up, so I just kept them.  They are pinning right now, I have 4 of them and the pinset is looking very nice.  These are Eq just like my straw, hopefully these cups will give me a good indication of what I am in for on the straw. :smile:

Pics as always.

They are 16oz. clear plastic cups.  I have no idea who invented it, I followed no teks, I just made casing like usual, 1/2" of verm, 3.5" of WBS, and 3/4" of coco coir/verm casing.  I think they are coming along very nice. :smile: :mushroom2:

A container is a container is a container.

Nice pinset crazy. You never intended to give those away in the first place! C'mon we're all on the same team - you can be honest!  :cool:

Haha, actually I wanted to, but now that I have them and they are pinning I can't really just give them away.  :crazy2:

April 18

I am going to the store today to pick up a light diffuser panel to make the top of my sterilite into something able to let light in.  Lights will start tomorrow morning!  The layer is colonized nicely and I cased with a light final layer for the last few spots to catch up.

My cups are almost ready to pick.  The fruits are small, but the cups don't have up WBS in them at all.  Also I am incuding a picture of my Burma casing on its 4th flush or so.  Stay tuned for new pics of the straw grow after my lights are on for a few days.

Schweet!

This evening I went and bought a sheet of fluorescant light diffusing plastic (the ones with the tiny triangles all over the surface). This should help make the light very even over the whole casing surface. I cut it to size, cut the top out, and then caulked it in to place. After it dries I'll put the 18" fluoro on it and it'll turn on tomorrow at 6am. Pins here I come!

from the looks of your pics, you could increase your yields by watering a little heavier

Are you referring to the old Burma casing and Eq cups? I water the Burma casing daily but it dries out really fast. I don't really care though because it has never been a strong producer. I just want the straw grow to go well.

April 19

Lights came on for the first time this morning.  For reference I thought I would attach a picture as to how the casing looks right now.  It is pretty even and the myc is just coming through the top layer.  I patched atleast 5 times to get an even myc layer.  :smile:

Crazy what temperature's that tub being kept at? Also how are you keeping the RH up? Or is it less of an issue because of the casing? Also, how much light do you give it per day?
