I have grown mushrooms but it has always been confined to jars with sucess. Here is my question. We are talking about a TAZMANIAN. Now as I understand it this strain works well in cooler temperatures. A spore syringe inoculation was made into a one half pint jar with consequential full cononization. Cake was removed from jar and cased with high quality premixed mushroom casing. Casing is thin and the entinre cake including the sides is well cased. The texture of the cake is spongy and it feels like it is holding quite a bit of water. Rice is I would say chock full of water and very turgid but not like blown up or anything. Cake is definately larger and expanded from the high hydration. It certainly by no means is on the dry side. Cake was cased about 10 days ago. There was no real action for like 10 days. Temperature is in the 80s but I have had it down in the 70s for a few days with no real change. Then I changed to a broad spectrum bulb and the mycelia began to penetrate the casing. No real pinning yet but really looks ready to go. Like I said I never felt a cake out of the jar so I really do not know if these are holding too much water and pinning inhibited? Is this temperature? Should I put in the dark for a few days then go to 12/12? Cakes in a Soulfood machine with constant airflow and filtration. Misting is done frequently with only gentle light casing misting. Hold the water??

Thanks a lot

I wouldn't mist it too much, it sounds like it might be a bit on the wet side already. And by adding a casing layer, that provides more moisture.
If there is moisture on the inside walls of your terraraium then your humidity is over 90%. And you don't need it that high for a cased cake, it is drawing moisture already from the casing.

Lower temp to lower 70's to hopefully induce pinning. Other than that, patience....
