Yeah, I was afraid the reishi is going big to give me fits. 

Should I let the lion’s mane ride for a while longer or spawn it? 

Thanks for the input.

I'd probably just spawn it

Reishi is very agressive.

48 hours after spawning, the reishi is going crazy. I did not realize it was such a fast growing mushroom.

I've had it grow out of spawn jar lid holes and syringes.

Both Lion’s Mane bags are fruiting.

Pics 1/2

Cut crosses into the sides a week ago after seeing primordia forming in air gaps between the substrate and bag. Growth is way faster than the bag I cut the top off of. 

 

Pics 3/4

A week after last photos and three weeks after putting to fruit, they’re doing well but growing sooooo slloooowwww. Ambient temp is 68F with Rh Set at 86%. Computer fan exhausts air for 10 minutes every two hours. Leaving them alone because there’s no evidence of tam.

Is this growth rate normal?

How are things going with your grow? Have you got antler or conks from the reishi yet? How is the LM doing?

I got enough LM for one meal. They were small but tasty. Not sure why they didn’t grow larger. Grow tent has been 64 with 86% humidity. Next round I’ll bring up temp and humidity up slightly. 

 

Reishi has antlers. No plates. I’ll post pics. Same growing conditions as the LM.

      Learning a lot reading your posts keep it up.

      Oh I apologize I was confused as to which thread I was commenting in. My last reply was about actual fruiting chambers and conditions. You are incubating. You need to maintain 77-80* air temperatures during incubation but do not sit your bags directly on a heating source. 
    • Iamchefmo
      Makes sense. So do you recommend that I put the tote away from the heater so it falls back to room temperature? I know contams are higher risk at higher temps but I also read it promotes healthier mycelium and faster colonization times. I thought I'd give it a shot since my other bags failed on the shelf

      That is due to a phenomenon known as dew point. The air in the fruiting chamber is much warmer than the plastic of it. This causes the moisture in the air to condense on the walls. Like brining a cold can of soda outside during the summer. the goal is to cool the air in the fc to about that of the plastic. 68-72 degrees.  Condensate almost always indicates temps too high
