Do not case, recase, recase. Just make the casing, and let it do it's thing.
You got way to much going on there. It doesn't have to be like that.
Just place a casing inside a clear rubbermaid, and mist and fan daily until pins form. Then you stop everything for 24-48 hours for buttons to form in more then one spot, and then you leave the lid slightly open, and fan manually with a paper plate, maybe 1-2 times a day. After 3-7 days they will be mature.
Some substrains are crappy, and even when everything goes great, they don't produce large mushrooms. They stay short, mutate, and never really drop spores. This can be genetic, and not entirely related to the environmnet.
Don't be afraid to let the casing go completely dry!!! Do not mist anything after you see buttons.
I would take the tray that is forming buttons and seperate it from the others. Put it in a rubbermade large enough to fit two casings side by side, and tall enough to mature ten inch fruits from the casing surface. Then just leave the lid slighlty off so the corners are open. THEN JUST WAIT. Fan 1-2 times daily if you must, but it really isn't necessary. The open lid will result in a constant steady draw of moisture from inside the casing to the air outside the rubbermade.
still no progress since the first harvest but still trying.
btw, my harvest was 1,2 gr dry and I made a tea last night..
they are VERY potent! no matter how unsuccessful I thought I had been (with harvest amount) the potency was incredibly good!
now I am wondering if one can achieve such great results (trip level)with increased levels of sclerotia too? or does everyone who has tried them think they have a different trip?
