First spawn, shoebox tek. How does it look?
    #27147327 - 01/14/21 09:58 AM (1 month, 13 days ago)

Heya I made my first shoebox today. I am following ShaperDreaming's SFF shoebox tek. Did not modify to box in anyway, no holes or anything. Made a casing layer of substrate and then I sprayed it water like crazy. Now it is sitting with its lid on, latched. How does it look? Any advice? My phone takes horrible pictures, I hope they give any sense of what the surface conditions are.

Looks all good!
Now it’s time to sit and wait for the mycelium to munch.
When I was doing my first shoebox, I checked way too much and ended up over saturating my substrate because I was paranoid about misting. Shoeboxes don’t need constant care I quickly found out :smile:
Keep us updated!
Cheers!

Looks spot on to me. You should be able to just watch it from here until the shroomies start a growin!

Just check on them every second day or so and only mist again if for some reason the substrate looks reasonably dry, but this is unlikely if you set it up properly as per Shaperdreamer's TEK.

Get ready for a 1.5+ ounces of dry mushrooms off a single shoebox :crazy2:

So I had actually made two of these, not one. I don't remember exactly which one was the one I posted pictures of above.

Anyway here is an update on both of them




one of them required misting for two times, the other one is doing fine in terms of moisture. It's day 11 for both of them. I guess they're doing good.

Looks plenty most in there. Try and fight the urge to mist.

The times i misted it, the top of the substrate was obviously going dry, although it's my first time so I can't really make sure. What visual cue gives it away so easily for you? Is it the moisture on the walls of the box? Thank you.

For me when I do my shoeboxes as long as my coir looks damp I do not mist. If the walls appear to lack all condensation I will be inclined to give it a spray. Keep in mind that there is likely still enough water in the substrate to keep it happy for another day or two so sometimes I wait.

Hey. Not sure if I should make another thread for this but...

It's day 18 and still no pinning. They look feel moist on top and have tiny beading.

Should I be worried? Or when is a good time to be worried?

looks like you could try going ahead and giving em some more of that tasty fresh air!  Evaporation of the water beads is the major pinning trigger, along with light and full colonization etc.  If your lids are latched, try just unlatching and setting on top, or flip the lid upside down and set it on top if thats not enough.
