Need advice on first grow.
    #27103078 - 12/22/20 10:25 PM (2 months, 11 days ago)

This is my first ever grow.  The pictures are two different shoeboxes.  I just want to know if everything looks ok so far???  There are some brown spots that have started to show up the past couple days.  I've been misting and fanning 2 times a day and they are in a closet where the temp is around 67-68 degrees.

Temps are a little low, but everything looks okay to me so far...I think I even see some hyphal knots in there. I'm relatively new to this myself, so a second opinion wouldn't hurt. How far into the grow are you?

Thanks.  I'm about 3 weeks into S2B.  It's been in fruiting conditions for 1 week.  I would really like to keep them in A warmer spot in the house but that's not possible.

It's concerning that they didn't colonize all the way. Don't mist the substrate directly but keep doing what you're doing.

Whats S2B?

I don't see anything concerning. It's normal for a top layer to not colonize 100%, the growth looks good, and temps aren't "ideal" but well within tolerance for fruits. Just let it do it's thing, don't change too much except you can drop fanning and mist less(only when dry). Sometimes these things just take a little longer

I used to be concerned about top layer not fully colonizing but from recent experience they have been areas of great growth!

Thanks everyone for the responses.  So excited I got my first pin today!!

I was going to slow down misting and fanning to only when substrate is dry.  Should I just mist indirectly or just maybe mist the top and walls of the dubtub?

Just don't mist or fan at all at this point. Your sub looks a bit on the wet side and fanning is outdated if your fruiting chamber is modified/un-modified correctly.

Just let its do its thing. I would be more focused on keeping the surface of the sub retaining the small beads of water. Let the FAE do its job and mist if it gets too dry. Also well dialed in boxes only need 1 heavy misting until getting fruits so don't obsess over your tubs.
