Beautiful. Looks like you just manual fanned/misted, is that right? Any external equipment such as humidifiers used?

Sorry, forgot to mention, I spawned with WBS.

I fanned about twice a day and thats it, no misting or anything.
I made sure that the casing layer was pretty moist so I didn't think there was any need to mist. Besides, with two containers, there was more than enough humidity, especially when they started to fruit.

Thanks for the compliments, I have to say though, the poo takes care of itself. I mean, you don't have to do much to get a really nice pinset. I can't believe the difference it makes.

No problem,

Everything I learned I learned on this site.
good links:

There are many ways to do it, I'll just tell you what I did and you can make any changes you think might help. I assume you have your spawn since you've attempted casing before. As I said, I used WBS ( wild bird seed). After the WBS is fully colonized, and I mean it's fully white, it's ready. I dumped pasteurised horse poo into the container so it's about 2 inches deep, making sure to break up clumps.

Then I add a quart ( about a litre ) of WBS to the poo and mix it up (with sterile fork). then I cover this with tinfoil and stab some holes in the top with a fork. I put this in a warm dark place to colonize. After it's really white, it's finished.

Then I mix one part vermiculite with 2 parts coir ( coconut husk ) and make it really wet. I throw this in the microwave for 3 mins and let it cool completely. (Don't forget the water or you'll be sorry). I just make enough so that I can cover the substrate with 1/4 the substrate depth to a maximum of 2 inches. So in this case, my sub. depth is 2 inches, so I used 1/2 inch casing layer. Cover it back up with tin foil and put it in a warm dark place again. Check everyday and this is the tricky part.

If you want a good pinset, this is one of the steps that takes practice. You have to know when to initiate pinning. Too soon and your pinset will be weak, too late and also weak. The right moment is when the mycelium reaches the surface and it is all uniform. When it starts to reach above the top casing layer it's ready. Some people patch areas that reach first so that other areas can catch up. If your casing layer is even, you shouldn't have too much trouble.

take off the tinfoil and stick it in a bigger container (sterile- I clean it with 99% rubbing alcohol) with a clear lid, or like the one in the picture. It doesn't need much light, just the normal amount that your average room gets. I fanned in the morning, afternoon and night, sometimes just twice a day. I didn't mist. If your casing layer is wet enough, you shouldn't need to. If you want to, you acn make a slolution of 10% H2O2 (10%) 90% water.

keep that up and the mushrooms should begin to grow in about a week, then mature in about a week, depending on the strain.


Anyway, good luck!

You said you used 2 bins? Was that a double tub type of setup without the polyfil stuffed holes? That was a really nice pinset! :thumbup:

Thanks,

Yea, it is a double tub type setup, no polyfil holes, I just fan manually.
