Looks like your casing layer is a little dry, to get pinning going, get your humitity up to 95-100%. With temp. 70-75F. Try misting a little.

Please don't quote me on this...

to me it looks dry.. is it pulling away from the sides or anything? Yes, you need to really lower you temp. that's a little to hot for your casing.

you need to lower you temp to get pinning going, and keep the humitity 95-100. Try misting some if you don't already

That casing is way more dry then a little dry. That things choking in the desert. Keeping 100% humidity isnt enough. You NEED to mist too. Keep temps 73-77 if you can (or as low as you can if higher...high temps arent really a problem for you except that its probably helping to dry out the casing), light, fresh air and mist that poor casing!

Next time...use more verm too.

The water I use is bought though the store, I know it clean, perifide, and filled with nutision. So yea, I'd recommend buying water from a store rather than house water.

you don't want the mycelium to take over the top of your casing layer!~

you want the mycelium to just start to break through the casing layer.

---

Looks a little dry.

make sure that your casing layer stays moist.

---

drop the temps down to 73 to 76 degrees F.

---

You want high humidity during pre-pinning/primordia formation 95% or higher.

Then drop the humidity down to around 90% once the pins have reached 3-4 mm.

---

Make sure you give the casing some light.

---

Make sure to have good air exchange.

---

good luck!~

when you first apply the casing layer...you keep it at 81 to 84 degrees f. so that the mycelium will start to grow through the casing layer.

then you put it into the fruiting chamber...and drop the temp to 73 to 76 degrees F.

hope this helps you understand better.

He wasnt wrong. You should get the temp to 80-85 before you fruit it. What you missed, is AFTER you do that, 2-3 days later you remove it from the 80-85 degrees and drop the temp 10 degrees, expose it to light and fresh air (the three pinning triggers) all at the exact same time. Luckily you arent going to end up overlaid because of the casing being so dried but its definatly past time to fruit it..I would lightly cover those spots where its showing (I mean LIGHT, just even with the rest of the casing) and mist it down WELL...then fruit and keep it moist..
