They are in the fruiting chamber since 4-5 days.

Hi. The casings have not pinned :S. The surface seems to be a bit dry... should I mist it with water or it could harm the myc? or only set high humidity level and correct temp?

-- update

I have misted following the steps of some info here in shroomery and now the rh is greater (near 99%).

I think that pins have appeared in a corner :smile:

Do you see any contamination at the left? or it can be just color from the coco coir :S

it's the coco coir.

yep, those are pins.

i agree that you're getting dangerously close to overlay. you should put them in the fruiting chamber when the myc starts to pop up in tiny bits all over the casing layer. you want the pins to start in the microclimate of the casing layer..

Thanks for the reply, I was a bit worried.

I think that I'm close to overlay because I let the casing to dry a bit (first attempt :S). I put it in the fruiting chamber with about 15-20% colonized.

Regards :mushroom2:

Well, overlay or not, looks like you've definately got something coming from your efforts! Congrats!
