EDIT: bottom of Page has pictures of suspected trich.


I was wondering if anyone sees any knots or any indication that this tub will pin soon? It was spawned on 11th. I really don’t know what I’m looking for so I’d appreciate any help I can get...

Looks good.  Can't tell from the pic, but are there water beads on the surface or is it dry?

Honestly I keep thinking it’s a bit dry, I don’t think there is any visible water beads. Here’s a close up:

So do you see any knots?

Everyone keeps telling me I shouldn’t have to mist it until after the first flush..

I would lightly mist it to get it looking like this:

https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/23999053

Then don't mist it until it evaporates/disappears.  I don't see any knots, but once you get the moisture on the surface right, they will come quick.  Just don't start misting it too much.  Get the water beads on the surface and stop.

I looked at it with the flash light and it actually does have tiny water beads all over it, but they aren't even noticeable until you shine a light and get your face down there...

I'm seriously concerned my tub isn't getting the proper FAE because I'm a stubborn idiot who cant follow simple directions,

I didnt wanna use the traditional method of 6 X 1.25" holes because I thought air would circulate better if I used more smaller holes.

So I've got about 6" of total holes made by drilling many 3/8" holes and they are covered with micropore tape.. majority of the holes are towards the top as i figured If a unmodified tub can work then the hole placement cant be "that" important.. the standard mono has 7.5" total of holes mines only 1" less and my tub is about half the size of the 60QTs

Can someone who has some experience please tell if I'm alright?

There are a few areas in the top and middle left that look like that are starting to knot, but currently you have a lot of good looking aerial mycelium, the step right before.  If it’s just been opened to fruiting, it’s fine, if it’s been open to fruiting for awhile now, it means it does need a bit more FAE.

Misting and fanning are in part to coax this very behavior.  Give it a mist of 4-5 sprays onto the surface and fan it with the lid for 30 seconds or so, then leave it alone.  If the aerials aren’t starting to lay down in a day or two, you can repeat and increase the FAE slightly.

I originally had all the holes taped up but after doing some reading I decided to introduce FAE around 5 days into it... so around the 16th it was put into "fruiting"

What exactly is the Ariel mycelium? I've looked for some info but am still unsure what your talking about...

Thanks for responding!

It looks good to me.  I think you're going to get some mushrooms before too long.  It's not producing in excellent time, excellent time would be mushrooms by now, but you are not outside the range of decent performance..

Ya i thought it seemed to be going kinda slow too, hopefully everything still works out tho...
.

Just sucks because I dont know what to look for.. no idea what it looks like If it's too dry or too wet, or do its lacking FAE or not... I'm seriously lost with all that stuff.

Im starting to kick myself for not just following pastywhyte's dialed in tub tek to a T ... now I'm worried...

All of those super bright white little dots/specks are knots in progress. Things should start getting very exciting over the next few days, just keep up your surface conditions 😁

Finally!



I just cracked the lid about an inch to help get some FAE, as I was advised to increase. I'm just a little worried about it drying out now. Any tips on what to look for, in the case that it is getting too dry?

EDIT: this is the my sub later from the side (no liner) what are all these little white dots? Should I be concerned?

You need to mist that surface. Especially if you are cracking the lid.

Those are knots. Get ready for side pins galore!

Yep should be the first pin or two anyday. Hopefully they stick to the surface my last shoeboxes had knots on the sides just like your picture and I got 90% side pins. Your surface looks much better than mine did though.  Just one more weekish and you’ll be done! Good luck man.

By doing nothing! They’ll grow into perfectly edible (albeit somewhat misshapen) fruit all by themselves! Gotta love monos...
