a couple pics of my casings/cakes
    #417550 - 10/08/01 03:46 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys, here's my first attempt at growing (PFs and mexi) - sorry about the bad quality pictures, it's a webcam

1 - a nice little pin going from ONE cake cased with straight verm. The cake was originally contaminated so i took a chance and cased it individually. The casing has about 20 tiny pins in it (although you can't see them due to bad picture quality.

2 - Four cakes starting to pin (2 mexi, 2 PF)

3 - "The ultimate poor man's setup"... I know that cakes and casings shouldn't be in the same chamber, but hell, they're both pinning.

Thanks everyone for your help.

I let the mycelium colonize for 4-5 days, then put them into the terrarium with light. During this time, I didn't mist at all, i just covered with saran wrap and put them in a dark spot. It may not be the best way to grow, but hell, it worked :) Hope I answered your questions. Good luck
