Two questions...
    #1425659 - 04/03/03 10:37 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Is there a preference out there of "Finch Seed" or "Wild Bird Food", like does one work better than the other in any way or are they pretty much interchangable in "seed" mixtures? And the other question is...if a casing has been in terrarium for about a week and a half and isn't pinning but top casing layer is getting pretty overtaken by fuzz is this a good thing and right direction for success?

Bird seed is pretty much bird seed , but for ease and tried and prooven methods a combo of milo/millett is best, IMHO , cheap and easy to obtain , and mycelium loves the stuff . Rye is also another commonly used grain for mushroom cultivation .
If you have a feed and grain store in your area go there , you can buy the stuff in bulk , and even find them with no additives .
Good Luck
Sorry forgot about the second question ...... If the casing is becoming "overrun" by the myc you need to induce fruiting before you get overlay . If mycelium is "patchy" , add some more case to those areas until myc poking thru is as even as possible , then induce fruiting .
Do this by exposing to light , fanning more frequently , misting enough to keep case moist , dropping temp a few degrees if needed (cold shocking ) .

So with that said here is our mission statement .

I'd say finch seed. But its a matter of preference so you'll get different answers on this subject. THen about the casing if there are no pins i'd say wait another 5 or 6 days and they should come :smile:
What strain is it?

I'd say wait another week! Ecuadors can be stubborn sometimes... Good strain just takes some patience :smile:
