so u had it wrapped up with plastic and forgot bout it and took the plastic off when u started seeing pins now that u took the plastic off the pins arent growing? and its been 15 days? those pins would be no good by now rotted to hell.
i would take any pins off get some moist verm and roll the ball in verm mabe the out sides are too dry try and give it a casing layer
im not too experinced with sumtin like this i do alot of straw casings tho
are u sure theres no contam inside the ball
hows your air exchange if its too strong u might be drying it out straw drys quick with no casing on it

i think that ill probly dunk the thing. and the throw it in some good casing mix. maybe like a 18 gallon tub with the top cut out and a piece of plexi glass over it. thanks for the help tripin 420. nobody else had anything to say about it:)

I wouldn't advice you to break it and transfer into a bunch of casings because you'll have contamination problems.The best thing you can do is to clean the aborts and rots and again into the fruiting chamber.You'll get new mushies because not much water has been consumed from your strawball.
