Somebody please help me, going crazy here!!!
    #1132256 - 12/11/02 12:12 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Alright, first off, let me tell you what i have done so far.
i am growing Gulfcoast strain. i inoculated the jars, everything was good, i cased then in soil and verm. the mycelium spread like crazy right, so i placed the trays in a cooler i have, i layerd the bottom with vermiculite for humidity.
about a week went by and still nothing was happening and i notice some weird looking mycelium looking like little white trees popping up one of the corners, real thick, just some weird mycelium. also when i cased i noticed the soil has shrunken so there was about an inch gap between the casing and the tray, so i decided to take the casins out of the trays and put them back into the cooler, i then noticed i little pinhead growing from the side of one of the casings, its about 1/4 of an inch, a little tiny midget. and i also noticed like 4 more other little little pins, all together i think i have like 6 pins growing, but there all on the side, i give them light everyday, i mist in the cooler, they have humidity and light, but why arnt they growing on the top of the casing, any help or advice, this is also my first time..thank you

if i were you i would have not used straight verm for a casing layer on that strain, i would have used a 50-50 and how much humidity do you have and whats your temp for fruiting?

i didnt use the verm. for a casing layer, i layer the cooler with the verm. the temp. is about 75-80 and i really dont know the humidity, the walls have some pretty nice condensation, but not alot.

Verm does not act as a good humidity source, although for casings you don't really need to provide all that much humidity.

That inch gap between casing and tray implies things aren't moist enough, to the best of my knowledge.
