Your being impatient, as long as your conditions are good, just wait a bit.

that's the biggest thing i learned. being patient. do things right and kick back. The fungus basically shows you when its ready for the next step.

Looks a bit dry in your chamber, though I could be wrong.

Is the chamber you have supposed to have tape over those holes in the side?

You could be right too though lol.. I mist it 3 to 4 times a day.. before I leave for work at 7, when I come home for lunch at 12, again as soon as I get home at 5, then again when I go to bed.. as far as I’ve seen, the lowest it gets is like 92% between misting.. is this a big deal? Should I find a way to keep it higher?

Are you fanning these as well?

From your pics I can see a few hyphal knots starting to form. Give it more time and they should start popping up.

Those things look great to me! Your rh is above 90%, 7 days is normal, no worries. You should start seeing pins any day  :)

 

Did you get impatient and take a bite out of this guy? :lol: Just kidding.

Lol yea I couldn’t help myself I hadda see what they tasted like.. I keep seeing posts about letting the c02 get high inside the chamber in order to let the mushrooms grow taller in search of air.. is this valid? Should I cut back on fanning when I see pins?

Yes you should cut way back on fanning when pins show.

Looking great, bud :headbang:

If anything at all, I'd side with Dirtbag and say they are slightly on the dry side.

The cakes? Or the chamber itself.. I dunked 24 hours.. should I drench them a few times in the next couple days and hope for the best?

:thinking:

When you fan you should take the lid off the FC and fan the whole tub. Are we on the same page?

The verm on the outside of the cakes should always look moist.

Ah. I get it now. The cakes may be SLIGHTLY on the dry side.

Lol. You are very impatient. You're not "hoping for the best". You're sitting back and watching a good grow progress.

Ha alright man.. I came home from work today, and despite the RH dropping to 85% (oops).. there are quite a few little knots.. like a lot more than yesterday.. particularly on the cake I chewed on.. so there’s been some progress 

What’s this?!! Shit! Maybe bacteria? Or a pin?!

Check this out.. I think it’s knotting.. but it also looks a little dry? Weird? Bumpy? The cakes are definitely all changing every day, which I suppose is a good thing. The growths on the cakes look kinda hard though. Which I’ve heard can make it tough for pins to form

Don't knots look like little tinsy winsy white balls. the rounded look really stands out on the mycelium. i want to see what those babies look like right before harvest. keep us updated, man! can you see the mini forest of shrooms? don't get excited. it may cause you to become impatient.

Lol I like that head banger thing how the fuck are you doing that?

Also, I found another pin but I think it’s gonna abort.. roughly half of the cap is black.. should I pick it right away if I see black? Or watch it for a couple days and see what it does.. can they recover?

Maybe an abort. Just let it ride. If that's the only pin on that cake don't change your mist and fan schedule yet.

There are like 6 pins total between 2 cakes.. the other two cakes don’t have anything yet, and I’m beginning to suspect that one of them has a bacteria problem

      Hi I’ve recently just joined and I’m looking to start up growing some golden teachers I’m first off getting the grow kits but they seem abit to simple so after that I want to move on to something abit more complex and I just had a question, can you innoculate steralised grain bags and use a expandable twin chamber mushroom growing system? I understand they come with jars but I hear that it’s easy to contaminate and you don’t get a good enough yield so I was hoping to find a way to you the sterilised grain bags and to use the twin chamber but I’m unsure on how this could work and I can’t see anything on YouTube about it

      Sometimes its nice when a little surprise pops out of the soil,

      Oh awsome man! This has to be one of the coolest mushrooms I've ever seen out of a pot. Looks so yellow and fake I thought someone was playing a joke on me.
