      Now all I have to do is keep them alive and learn how to properly mist a casing and learn what it looks like when it's dry and what it looks like when it is wet enough vs not wet enough.    I'm thinking it'll take a heavier misting than cakes and it'll dry out sooner than I would expect.

      Pulled the foil off the other two 6qt tubs of GT.   They both looked like this.   Bulk grow on this tek 100% successful.     Four 6qt tubs of GT are now in their FC's.   5 more cakes to roll and reintroduce into the FC today and I'm done.    Started doing something new.   You know how cakes get concave on the tops and sometimes water will pool on them and they are the first to turn blue from stress?    I've started putting them into bathe top side down and after rolling in verm I am placing them top side down onto the wet verm lids.    This leaves a nice flat surface for the fruiting cycle.   It also puts the bruised from stress myc next to the wet verm in the bottom of the lid where it'll stay more hydrated.

      I have been wondering about some of this stuff too with the room my dubs are in . My IC is down at the moment .    Ive got weatherstripping on the tubs and was thinking about putting a small humdifier in their room on a timer .

      Fruited cakes 12 and 13 this morning total combined 84g.   The last 4 cakes are lagging behind and will be less fruits.   Interesting how some produce more than others.

      I ordered a King Oyster LC. While waiting for the LC to arrive, I tried Strobes WBS tek, doing my best to read over the tutorial multiple times to not miss any steps. Filled up 12 quart jars and PCed 7 of them for 90 min at 15 psi then did the other 5 jars the same. (I thought I maybe burned my WBS by the smell I had.) After the PC unlocked I immediately removed the jars and shook them, trying my best not to disrupt the 1/3 cup of Verm I put in the bottom of the jars. I shook the jars 2 to 3 times daily to help move the moisture around throughout the jars. The King Oyster LC arrived. With much excitement I set up my SAB, Lysol, alcohol, etc.... Worried about the moisture of my WBS and if I did everything right I only decided to inoculate 4 jars and save the other 8 jars just in case something went wrong with either the WBS or the LC being contaminated.  It has been 2 days since inoculating the jars. I am seeing growth in 2 of my jars and could not be happier. I understand contamination could likely occur still but so far things are feeling very positive.  (Pictures of jars will be posted in a few days when more growth occurs)

      I just came up with a really good idea while putting the lids back on after fanning.   It's not "simple" but it's something that would do the job and not involve additional FAE beyond the 15 min. x 3-4 a day.    I'll shop around for parts and see what's available out there to make it inexpensive as well as functional.   The earth is slow but the ox is patient.   ✌️

      Haven't been able to get the gallery to work so putting it here.

      Cool mist humidifier.  Pond fogger. Both are way overkill  for single tub environments but you asked for simple. Another method, fill jar with water and drape an absorbent cloth in and over lip of jar. Aim a computer fan at it inside tub.  This would work for cakes since the jar would be sitting on the perilite. No room for it in a single tub bulk grow.

      Fruited cakes #9 / 62g, #10 / 54g, and #11 / 33g today.    Put together two new FC's and set up another FC table for them.    Put 25g air dried shrooms in the final drying chamber to free up a drying rack.   There are about 50g more.   Mixed up 2 qts. of casing and PC'd it to case the 2 remaining GT 6qt. tubs tomorrow..... if they are free of tams.    Busy day today.    I'm tired.    Kitchens a mess.   Time to decompress.   Unlax.
