Experimental casing/ 1st casing (pictures)

i accidentally hit the bottom of one of my jars a week back, the top layer of verm got mixed in with the cake, so i figured it would contam...

so, i cased it before it was even half colonized. i picked peat off the garden bed outdoors and added verm, mixed with water and microwaved for 4 minutes. after a week, this is what i've got.

i didn't expect to get anything because i did it so halfassed, but, it's growing. does it look too dry? i don't have the humidifier setup yet in the chamber so i'm just fanning a few times a day, misting once a day. the pictures aren't too great, but does it look straight? when do pins usually begin forming? the temp is around 75 with humidity a little above 80. i know you're supposed to drop temp to initiate pinning...should i let it grow out more though or just leave it how it is?

I would let it go, looks good. You should start to see pins in 3-10 days.

If that substrate is 1/4" like it looks like then it probably won't put out any shrooms, but if its deeper then good job, keep waiting for pins. It does look dry, try misting it in increments, slowly so you don't overwhelm and mat down the casing. A few gentle mistings is the way to rehydrate rather than one big misting.
