First grow, temperature issue, stunted growth issue
    #25745329 - 01/15/19 01:19 PM (2 years, 1 month ago)

Good day to you and thanks for taking the time to read my first post.

I inoculated GT on Dec 3rd to an all-in-one bag containing rye berry and horse manure.  Both were purchased from sponsors.  On Jan 1, I thought I spotted contamination.  There were yellow liquid dots after a few weeks of colonization so I removed the block from the bag.  After researching, I belive it was metabolites.  I also believe I removed the block too early and now it is in the fruiting chamber.  It has been there for over two weeks and I have seen zero pins.  I fan and mist 3x daily.  Lights are on 12, off 12.  The temp in my basement is approx 61 degrees f.  The one fc is around 73, the other (sgfc) is ambient.  Should I just be patient or move the block from its current FC? Its my first attempt, please advise on corrections to my setup.  I have thick skin and welcome scrutiny.  I just want to improve my practice.

Thank you!

That SGFC isn't really built to spec, so im guessing you're going to need more fresh air exchange than that. Needs 1/4in holes every 2in in a grid pattern on ALL sides, also needs to be elevated so some air can come up through the bottom and up through perlite which will provide humidity, and the holes on the other 5 sides will supply the fresh air exchange.

Rgr, thanks for the feedback.  So there are 1/4 holes drilled throughout, including the bottom.  I did however just randomly drilled the holes and did not mark them out.  I know I f'd that up.  The brick is currently in the other FC, the mess in the sgfc is just an experiment. 

Again, thanks for the reply, have a good day.

These are the two fruiting chambers, currently the block is on the one on the right.
