*CASING*

wish i had a pic, this is the largest grow ive tried yet, it is in a 2' x 1' pan.... i used 3 cakes, and i wait like 9 days for the mycelium to come upand it only did in like 4 spots... then it stopped, and pinned while it was covered up incubating!!!!!!! strain is Puerto Ricans, this kinda sucks, cuz the pins are skinny with no caps, and i was like wtf.. why would it pin at 86 degrees and not grow????

The casing layer has to be even to get even myc comming through. And not level but even to the substrate...you probably had some hills of substrate under somewhere with less casing so it came up. Maybe being exposed to light made it pin, are you sure they are pinds though? No caps? Couple be ariel mycelium if they are small. You'd know after a day...
