OK, trying to pin, read the FAQs, still confused, help! :)
    #1177776 - 12/29/02 05:10 PM (14 years, 26 days ago)

Here's the dillio:

I got the P. Cub. var Indian Eyes from Homestead.  I am using their EZ kit.  I have already colinized the bag of grain, and taken that and colinized a bag of crap with it.  I put the broken bits of mycellium onto the steralized work crap, into the tub and put the lid on.

The lid comes pre-drilled with holes for CO2 release.  OK, the questions:

The mycellium is now in the "knots" faze.  It has gone from fuzz.... to the little white "spider-web-like knots".  I would say between 75%-85% of the tub is white, (the top anyways) now it is going on 14 days, and I have seen NO pins.

Why not?  Now, the humidity is perfect, and the temp is right where it should be (90% HUM., 75 deg. F) ANYWAYS I have tried cold shocking overnight in the fridge and I am CONSIDERING "scratching".  I just don't know.

They say never to remove the lid and keep it on because the holes are supposed to take care of CO2 release.  However, I have opened the lid like twice, but the humidity is still very high.  I am just concerned and impatient, I guess.

But also: should I put some sort of casing on top of the top layer, like wet vermiculite or something?  Could this trigger fruiting?  They are getting good indirect light, so I know that part is ok.  I am just really stuck.  This is my first time NOT working with jars, so I want this to go well.  I;d like to see fruits by my birthday at the latest (which is of course in the beginnig of January) :smile:

I am a new poster, so thanks in advance for the help and also looking forward to ANY advice on how I can speed up fruiting, what I can do, etc, etc,.

And also pardon any spelling errors, this was typed quickly. :smile:

Thanks and thanks again!

-Diego.

yes, the shroom gods have the final say in when it all happens. Or if it even happens at all. Pray to them and give them your soul, and you should have pins in a day or so.

this guy sounds like me when i had my first cakes .....I know its hard. Sitting on your hands, and trying not to fuck your shit up but just wait a tad. go jog ,lift weights or something. Anything to get your mind off it. a watched pot wont boil...they will come.
