I massively increased fae yesterday and cased mine pretty lightly with 5050 this morning.

I’ll give it til the weekend and if I don’t see any changes figure out a way to keep it cooler til it pins.

So far nothing’s happening. It’s only been 13 days since I spawned though so I’m not sure if this is normal.

The myc hasn’t grown into the casing at all, I keep expecting pins each morning.

I’ve been keeping the temp in the 70s, I want to put it in the fridge to see if that helps but I also really want to know if it’ll pin as is.

I’ll probably wait another week or so before cold shocking it. Seems like that should be plenty of time if it was gonna pin without it.

G/L :thumbup:

I'm guessing it's gonna take a cold shock.  Will be interesting to see if it pins without one though.

When I came home last weekend, the small tub that I cased 5 days before and left outside in the shed looked as if first small pins are showing at the surface. There are also some sidepins visible - I hope they don't develop better than those on top...



And the large tub that was spawned at the same day as the samll one looked like that:



I cased it on sunday evening and put it in the shed for this week.

All other tubs are colonizing well, but until sunday evening the mycelium on the surface showed no thickening of the mycelium and was still whispy, but very even.

Still trying to keep my expectations under control, but optimism is definitely growing... :smile:

Nice!

I think I’m gonna need to drop my temps, mines been cased over a week I think.

I’m glad you posted cuz I’m not sure what exactly I’m looking for since it’s my first one.

Ehhh. Lol. Sorta.

After a few days in the fridge it started making these blob things so I took it out but it stopped again after a couple days. I’ll post a pic in a little.

I literally just split a quart of spawn in half into two jars, cased it with coir, let it colonize and put them in the fridge this morning. Gonna see if being cold the whole time helps.

I’m not even positive it’s king oyster since it’s never been fruited.

This is how it looked when I took it out of the fridge, it got way bigger but then stopped.

It could’ve been I eased up on mist while it was in the fridge since there’s no fae.

That was like a week and a half ago though.

Yeah it's hard to tell for sure but I think those were pins.  May have dried up.  You can always bury it and get a surprise in the fall!  Summer is a really bad time to try and fruit kings, at least for me in my area... nearly impossible to get it cold enough.  In the winter I just set the bags on the floor by our sliding glass door and they're full of pins in a couple days.

I wish I could throw stuff outside and have it fruit.

It’s 108 with 5% humidity right now.

I tried them in the fridge for 3 nights, nothing. And now tossed.
Sooo, I'm on T4 and scored Aspen chips from the pet store, cheap too!
shavings 2:1 to coir dry weight, even though it's 85F here.
Maybe have the shoeboxes live in the fridge!

Im gratefull i live in 75% humidity and the sea regulate the temps, its really not that cold now in winter and summers dont get high either.

I think my room oscillates between 63 at winter cold nights and to 74 at summer days because it never gets direct sunlight.
