please help me--i think my shrooms are dead.
    #9523198 - 12/31/08 01:15 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

So I inoculated two grow bags back at the beginning of November. They were slow to colonize but a few weeks ago the mycelium had finally taken over at least 90% of both bags. I expected them to start pinning, but the pins never came! Now the bags have a lot of condensation inside of them and it looks like the mycelium is retreating or something. Theyve been kept at a steady temp. of about 70 degrees. Is there anything I can do, or should I just try again in the spring?

Do you give them air exchange?

Yes, they do get air exchange. They've been kept in an open box.

make sure the bag is fully covered in myc then once fully covered drop the temp a lil bit and hit it with some light for a week and it will start pinning

Mycelium usually retreats from the 1/2 pint jar sides I use for my cube cakes when I let the mycelium age longer than usual (defer birthing process until a better time for my schedule). My understanding is the mycelium will pull away from the sides of its container because it has fully devoured all available substrate. I've never had a problem with fruiting these cakes (once I fully followed the experts pinning strategy instructions). Perhaps you should birth your big bag into a fruiting chamber. Take matters into your own hands, so to speak, as opposed to leaving everything up to the bag.

Cool. Big Red, can you point me to a good link for building a fruiting chamber? I'm a first time grower and the bags were from The Mad Season.
