just want to be clear, i am totally cool with being patient. growing weed & cubes has taught me a lot of that. i’m more making this post to ask what i’m doing wrong here. i made mini buckets out of some old yogurt containers, & have been letting them colonize. the tops look totally colonized, but the holes where i was expecting mushrooms to grow from don’t look colonized at all. i’m assuming it’s because these areas dried out, however i thought you didn’t need to mist during colonization. i wouldn’t have thought too much of it, but i noticed my pink oysters pinning on the lid. should i have kept these wrapped up until i saw pinning to keep the holes moist? my friend running the same tubs i am lives in cali & didn’t mist his at all & got fruits out the holes. but it’s probably between 20-35% RH where i live.
these were oats spawned to aspen bedding soaked in boiling water & squeezed to field capacity. the oats i used were definitely a bit bacterial, so i’m sure that could be some of it, but if they are anything like cubes i felt i could at least get SOME fruits off them. clearly they are down to pin still, so how do i go about getting them to pin where i want?
thank you all!!

Well it may be a bit late now, but I think you've probably assessed your situation correctly. If they pinned under the lid it's cause they liked it there better than the dried out area around the holes.
Next time you can line the bucket with a plastic bag or something and just cut a little x where each hole is. Also helps to fill it completely full so there's no place to pin under the lid.
