A friend of mine is attempting to grow the Puerto Rican strain using the Magic Mushroom Growers Guide found on this website. Instead of a styrofoam cooler he is using one of the large tupperware tubs, but everything else is basically the same as whats in the grow guide. He waited until the cakes were fully colonized and placed them in the terrarium. Everything is going according to plan, the cakes got the fuzzy mycellium on them and started to pin, it's been approx. a week and a half and nothing else is really happening. He is using a temperature/humidity gauge from a reptile store and the humidity is usually up very high{between 90 and 100 %} without ever really spraying the terrarium and the temp is usually between 70 and 80 degrees. My question is is there a chance that my gauge is incorrect? Could it be that far off when it comes to humidity? Approx. how long after pinning does it take to see mushrooms? What should the humidity be at? Those who have the experience and knowledge, please help!

. My question is is there a chance that my gauge is incorrect? >Could it be that far off when it comes to humidity?
Yes.
> Approx. how long after pinning does it take to see mushrooms?
A few days.

> What should the humidity be at?
For pinning 95-100%, for fruiting 92-95%.

Gauge calibration:
"Analog (dial-type) hygrometers are often shipped from the factory out of spec. To calibrate, you need plain table salt, a few drops of water and a see-through Tupperware container with a tightly fitting lid.
Place about 1 teaspoon of salt in a small shallow open container, such as the cap to a jar. Add a few drops of water to the salt. You DO NOT want a solution or to dissolve the salt, only get it damp. Place the container with the salt solution in the Tupperware container. Next, place the hygrometer in the Tupperware container face down. This will allow you to view and check the reading of the hygrometer before you open the container. CAUTION - do not spill any salt or solution on your hygrometer! Place the lid on the Tupperware container making sure it fits tight. Allow to stabilize for at least 6 hours. Without opening the container, check your reading. It should read exactly 75%. If not, note the deviation and or adjust the hygrometer."
