Pin over 3 inches. My first grow ever. Can't wait to harvest.

:grin:As I said before I didn?t think that I would succeed in  growing anything but mold. But, to my pleasant surprise my pin set is nice and even. I have dozens of pins on each of my 4 casings on my 5th casing I only have several that are not that big, they are less than 1 inch.

Most of them are already 1inch in length and I have one that is 3 inches. They are doing so well. I am using a hall closet that I have put plastic on all the walls and ceiling and a cool mist humidifier. Dung/vermiculite to spawn the corn. Then a layer of vermiculite. And boom!
I can not believe that the shrooms are growing so fast. Z-strain

I have few a question though. My closet shelves are only about 10 or so inches high, will that be a problem? How tall do shrooms get in length? I know that once the veil opens that it is time to pick them but, how much time does it take before the veil opens? What is the best way to dry them? I have industrial desiccant and silica gel. What is the best way to store them? How long can they be stored without losing their potency? I believe that is all for now.

I hope that someone will be able to answer these questions for me. I have tried to do most of it by reading all of the information that you great people have provided but, there are some questions that I have that I cant find the answers to.

I will be going out of town for 2 days and leaving my husband in charge of everything. It?s my hobby and I hope that he doesn?t do anything that will mess things up. But, I have 5 large casings spawning at the moment so, I guess if he does I can start all over.

Thank you all very much for all of the help that you have given to us beginning mycologist.

( Bowing to the masters )
Another question what is a great tasting edible mushroom?

I really enjoy mushrooms on pizza, in soup, on salad, on top of a nice steak, and really anything that will be enhanced by the meaty flavor and texture of edible mushrooms. I have read up on shitake but, if I am going to grow them I want them to be the best thing that will grace my meals.
:inlove: :spirit: :cheers:

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone! You should do everything that you want while you have the time as long as it is not against gods law.
