first unmodded tub - 32q
    #24826486 - 12/04/17 09:04 PM (3 years, 4 months ago)

just mixed substrate a week ago, (3q spawn/ 325g coir) having trouble judging the colonization % as I'm not sure exactly what 100% looks like.  Hows it looking? and how much longer should it go before putting into fruiting conditions?  thanks!

It may be at that 100% mark. If so wait about 5-7 days for full consolidation. Or until the tub "Let you know" when its ready for fruiting which I recommend.

You can fruit it now or wait. Looks good tho. There are a few spots that will fill in more before it fruits regardless of what you do.

Not to thread jack by any means, but is it ideal to let a tub stay in colonization mode UNTIL it shows a pin or two?  I have always fruited my tubs at 100% colonization. 

      With all these different opinions on when to fruit after bulking, it makes me wonder WHAT IS BEST FOR THE MUSHROOMS?  What are your reasons for letting it "consolidate" for 5 to 7 days longer?  Just wondering....by doing this do you think you get most of your shrooms out of your first and second flushes?

In my humble opinion.It only helps in creating a contam resistant fully consolidated tub. I do it on my own tubs that way to help Resist contamination It has helped me tremendously in my fight against trinch. Usually if I Wait "Give long consolidation time" I don't get trinch until late 3rd or late 4th flush.

So, my sub dried out and stalled...no pinning and was starting to blue a few days after i turned the lid over.  ( prob didn't have my coir moisture correct in the beginning, noted and will adjust next time)  I've since put a humidifier in the room which has brought the ambient humidity to about 65-70% temps are steady between 69-72.  I tried bottom watering the sub to bring it back and it didn't go down the sides, it just kind of went everywhere on top of the substrate.  it soaked in completely in about an hour.  Also, been misting often, but the sub seems to soak it up right away (within an hour or so) do i keep misting?  Thought about adding more water to the sub but there is a very small amount i can see sitting in the tub under the substrate which I assume means that adding more wouldn't be smart.    Now, a couple days later I'm seeing some pinning around the sides but nothing in the main area of the sub.  and there's a weird film over the entire thing.  where do i go from here?  this is uncharted territory for me.  thanks!
