This was my first time trying to start from spore let alone at all. I incubated my mycelium in rice flour/verm/water, thing was the jars werent tapered correctly so i had to break up the mycelium to get it out. I mixed the contents of jars with worm castings and put in 100% humidity and about 10 hours of indirect light a day at about 75 degrees F . The mycelium seems to be spreading and the four little trays i have the mixture in all seem to have good healthy mycelium growth. Its been about three days since i put them into fruiting. Should i be worried about something going wrong?

did you sterilize the worm castings? sounds like maybe you were trying a cake method  then went to more of a bulk method

did you let your sub fully colonize before you out it in your fruiting chamber?

and....

how did you pasturize your castings?

good questions no i did not let them fully colonize and also no i did not sterilize the castings. Sounds like i need to completely start over huh? I do have three more jars colonizing now.

Mushrooms are survivors, so you could be surprized. Subshould be fully colonized before fruiting. I would not suggest using just worm Casting. The best thing you can do is read a tek, rehearses it and follow it exactly. Most of the teks here Have been tested and proven threw peer review. You will notice the successful growers follow Teks.
