Update to: Got my first pin, It looks like A. Muscaria though...
    #24578876 - 08/25/17 02:19 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

First off, thanks to all who've shared their knowledge and experience, without which I doubt I'd have gotten far.
I began MS (burma) PF tek jars, then crumbled and spawned to pasteurized Hpoo/verm/gypsum, very fast colonization resulted, 5 days after full colonization, I applied .5" casing of sterilized ph'ed coir at h2o field
capacity, less than 48 hours later, first pin appears.
I'm really hoping that it isn't what it looks like to me.
If my precautions didn't allow Bacterial or other contams, whats the likelihood of a different species appearing in my substrate? 
I imagine Ill know for sure as the fruit matures, but impatience has me requesting any thoughts on this little guy.
  Thanks again everyone.

It's pretty common for cubes to have white spots on them like that when they are small. It's not likely that a rouge A. Muscaria spore randomly made it into your cake. give it a couple of days...it's likely a cube.

Amanita Muscaria cannot grow without trees present for its mycorrhizal relationship, it also looks like an egg when very young, that's a cube.

Thanks for your replies!
It has been somewhat of a long journey to this point,
But at each crossroad knew that with a few search terms I would likely find the path.
I Understand that one pin does not make a flush, nonetheless I am entirely pleased,
And very grateful to those who came before and took time and effort to document their
Experience and knowledge in aid to the uninitiated.
While I am Fairly advanced in cultivation of annual herbs and such, bringing diakarotic fungi to fruit is just on a whole new level for me.
Looking forward to the future, I built my sab early on, designed and built prototype of what I call a 'cloud chamber' humidifier/fae unit, and started doing some agar and LC work, but mostly searched posts an teks here on shroomery to absorb the knowledge.
Thanks again everyone, you'll probably be hearing more from me :grin:

Yesterday I carefully removed the largest specimen, and sectioned pieces of internal fruit body to liquid culture media, and agar plates. Oh happy day:crazy2:

Yikes, I still have 5 pint jars of full colonized ms brf ptek, (Burma),(and several other spore syringes) well maybe I need to get busy pasteurizing more hosspoo,
Then again, what will I do with my crops?
I didn't plan on consuming them, I just found the cultivation aspects interesting,
Can anyone give me some advice...
Returning them to the fields where I got my hpoo did come to mind,:eek:
Prolly getting ahead of myself here, I don't have a crop yet.

Those look great! You've done well

But you cannot use a desiccant chamber on shrooms if you want to store them. They need to be heated up and dried.
Heated and dried until brittle and cracker crisp

Thanks, I'll find the details.
Post that I read recommended placing shrooms on a rack over the material, and mentioned lost potency with heat drying. outdated info?

Thinking forced air drying would be optimal, and you can keep temps lower, 120-140f?
i enjoy trying to figure the best way before I research and confirm
