First time grower, only side pins.
    #27051510 - 11/22/20 07:31 AM (2 months, 4 days ago)

Hello, I bought grow kit to start my adventure, I placed some paper around plastic box to block some of sunlight (I know now that it is doing nothing) but I decided to take it off to have better look how they are doing and I notice some water drops, and top was full of mycelium (not sure though), I stopped watering for around 4-5 days and now mushrooms are only growing on sides of the box, should I take it out of it and let them grow free? Will this grow kit have 2 flush? not sure what to do now, thanks in advance ^^

they are cambodian.

dont know Jack about kits but do yourself a favour and take some prints and learn agar.you are getting side pins due to shitty surface conditions, they pin on the sides because conditions are  the sweet spot.

should I take it out of box to give them more space to grow? some of them are getting to surface from sides but most are growing sideways, Will they be okay without box? something like cake?

There's no need to take them out of the box. The sides of the box won't restrict how big they'll grow, they might just grow in to some funny shapes.

As long as it doesn't get contaminated, the kit should get two flushes. You will just have to wait and see, and mist it if it looks too dry.

They grow on the sides because the micro climate there is better than on the upper surface, which seems to be too wet. Take the cake out of the box put it in a SGFC and give it some FAE.

They are fine, you can flip that and they will grow. Like someone pointed out above they will just grow funny. I end up with a couple now and again in my tubs. The only issue I find is not catching them fast enough before the veil breaks.

the sides of the box can definitely restrict how big they will grow, but it doesn't matter. Aim to get proper surface conditions like water droplets and sufficient FAE and wait for pins to pop on the surface
