Stuck at pinning stage - halp!
    #26197525 - 09/19/19 04:12 PM (1 year, 5 months ago)

Hi everyone,

Massive 'shroom noob here, after some help!

Trying to grow my own B+ at home using a growbox I bought online and I seem to have stalled at the pinning stage.

I'm about 9 weeks into the process at the moment. About 3 weeks ago I took the lid off finally as the mycelium didn't look like it was growing out much more – it had all gathered on one side of the substrate (as you will see in the images) and had been like that for a while.

So I washed the perlite, put it into the humidity bag I was provided and placed the box inside, on top of the perlite, and have been misting as much as I can since then (tricky as I am out of the house for 10 hours of the day so I can only really do mornings and evenings).

The pins started forming relatively soon after I started misting... but that seems to be all that's happened, and I've read that the mushrooms should be appearing by now (I think?). At any rate, the pins that are there don't seem to be growing much more.

More pins so seem to be slowly spreading out into the side of the box with less obvious mycelium growth as well.

I'm generally worried that it's all gone a bit wrong. Do I just need to exercise more patience or is there something else I could/should be doing?

I bought a heat mat as it's turning into winter now and I read that B+ like it relatively warm, but I've only had that on for a day now, so hard to tell if it's doing any good. I know that heat mats are controversial, but not sure what else I can do to encourage it onto the next phase.

Would love some feedback! Images below.



Here you can see how it's mainly all to one side of the box.



This is inside my misting bag.



And this is my basic setup. It's in the kitchen and it does get hit by sunlight for a bit of the day.

:ohshi:

Those don't look like any pins I've ever seen... What the ever loving hell are you growing in there? :lol: Looks like pale cordyceps.

Only feedback I can give re: growkits is to go back in time, not order one, read through the teks to decide which one you want to do, build your own kit for cheaper with better materials.

That's either a contaminant mushroom or the most oxygen deprived cubes in history.
Cut a couple of holes in the plastic bag to allow air exchange.
Remove the heating mat.
No direct sunlight on the bag, indirect is plenty enough.
Mist the substrate directly but only when it looks dry.

I know I've not been on this forum for all that long... but I've never seen that before. There are NO caps on any of those. I've only ever seen cubes that long which also have caps (scroll down to Poor Fruiting Conditions for some examples)

This is totally something non-cube... has to be. I'm kinda floored by it, AND it's really cool looking.

EDIT: And thy're branching! BRANCHING! So neat.

EDIT 2: I'd get a refund or a new kit honestly. Fuck kits in general, but this is totally the company's fault here.

Oh I guess you're right. I saw something like small caps on a couple of them when zooming in, but the branching is super crazy! You should head over to the Mushroom Identification section to get an ID. A quick google search seems to indicate these might be corals, e.g. Clavaria Fumosa.
Either way, you'll likely not get any B+ out of this, sorry mate...

Ha, wow, such rapid responses! Many thanks all.

Quite amused at the prospect that I've managed to grow something unknown! I'll post in the Identification section and see if anyone can shed any light.

Maybe they sent me the wrong spores by accident?? The website I bought from generally has pretty good reviews...

Jesus Christ what are those things?

Those ain't no cubensis.  Send those pics to whoever sold you that kit.  Ask 'em what the big idea is.

Fuck me.

What's fascinating to me is that clearly that ain't cubensis, but whatever it is clearly likes the same food.
