The casing I used was verm. and water. I used four b+ cakes. I put a 3 inch diameter hole in the lid of the tub and taped a coffee filter on it to let some air in. After I see pins I'm going to take off the lid, mist 3x's a day, and put florescent light on it. Does this sound like a good plan? Appx. how many days before I see pins? Is there anything I can do to the casing now to help it?

i'd use polyfill instead of that coffee filter, i'd put the hole in the top of one of the sides of ur bin, i'd leave the lid on even after you see pins but fan 3+ times per day, and mist enough to keep the walls sweating. There isn't any need to keep a light on all the time, but you could run it in cycles of five mins every few hrs because its been shown that mushrooms grow fastest right when the lights come on and right after they go off, I beleive. Just keep the casing in the dark till its colonized, and keep it humid and between 75-85 and keep it around 75 ish when you start to get pins. Best of luck to ya.
