I would think you've done enough, so now all you have to do is wait. This is only hearsay, but the best cubensis are the ones that take at least 10 days to pin, so maybe it's your lucky week!
Waiting sucks but doing anything else would probably only slow things down.

7 days isn't an eternity. You'll be okay.

Oh, it is not the waiting that bothers me.

Just to clarify though, there was 'no growth' apparent after 7 days. I'm not talking pinning, I mean it doesn't appear that the mycelium has spread *at all* through any of the casing. Granted I didn't rip the whole thing apart, but the top casing layer seemed totally devoid of mycelium.

Hmm, maybe it's not humid or warm enough?

yea, what's your humidity and temp at? some people say they can grow without a terrarium. i have no idea how that can do that. i had my humidity drop down to the 70's and i didn't realize it. everything just stopped. this went on for like two weeks, until i realized something was very wrong, and fixed it. i don't think temp's that important, but watch your humidity.

how damp is your casing layer? not too dry/wet, is it? probably not too wet, since it hasn't contaminated yet, but if it's too dry, that could be the problem.

I would think one of three things:

1) Temperature (too low)
2) PH (too low:acidic)
3) Hidden contam

Solutions
1) Raise the Temp
2) Add lime to the casing and rough up all
the way to the substrate.
3) 90% chance that youre f..d

Ok, well temp is ~75 degrees.

I added lime to the casing layer (ala 50/50+ tek) so i don't think the ph is an issue.

I don't think i'm fucked either, because the mycelium i saw appears really healthy, and smells really mushroomy.

As of now i'm guessing the problem is too dry/ too low humidity. I'm gonna try setting up a terrarium with some seran wrap. Anyway, thanks for your responses, i'll let you all know if anything happens.

If anyone else has suggestions or ideas please post :smile:

How long does casing usually take from 1st day in the tray to fruiting?
