So imn flying kinda blind here or i was and i was wondering if any of the old pros out there in TV land had any advice or personal tips on the growing if the fabled Penis Envy everyone is always on about. I have never tried to do this and now have a tub of mushrooms that i keep second guessing at every instance.

Always case your PE substrates 😊... for many beneficial reasons.

One reason is that a casing layer will provide a source of moisture for your fruits to pull from.

Oh ya phish, I forgot about that :) PE and APE are the only cubes that need a casing. Unless you grow them in bags :D

Ok cool that will help I bet . I managed to get about 1 oz from that before it got retardedly knocked over upside down onto the floor . I have a second also but it seems to have developed a greenish blue hue the past 2 or 3 days . It has much healthier looking fruit on it so im hard pressed to Chuck it out.  All be it they are growing from the sides but beggars can't be choosy I figure. :huh:weird putin GIF

Wish upon a mushroom

Ive been doing alot of research on this as well. And everything ive read says if the fruit is growing it's fine as long as the fruits themselves dont have mold or slime on it.

      Hey guys, I was at home depot and picked these up, cool thing was the guy maintaining the tropics room and cacti was a hippy/stoner/psychonaut, and came to chat plants seeing if I need help. Had the hallucinagenic cacti wiki page open and he must have glanced it, took me right over to this guy Pachycereus pringlei and said I think you may like this one, I googled the name (its listed as edibal/psychoactive, although not sure of alkaloid content) and I just kinda looked at him, and he kinda laughed and told me you would be surprised what they some times get in shipments. Took out his phone to unleash a amazing image of a room filled with all cacti and and a few massive pots of Peyote buttons (I'm guessing) he also had some grafted.   I think I ought to keep my eyes peeled at home depot lol  My other cacti is a prickly pear cacti.

      You would probably be better off using a humidity controller to manage your humidifier instead of a timer. A humidity controller (humidistat) will turn your humidifier on and off as needed to maintain the % humidity you set it for. There are other really cool features you can program, for instance you can set the controller for how many % humidity you want the FC to drop before the controller kicks the humidifier back on. That's a nifty feature because that allows for some evaporation which is said to be a very good pinning trigger. Timers turn the humidifier on and off by fixed intervals you set. The problem with timers is that they run the humidifier when they don't need to be running. Sometimes they don't run even though the humidity is low. Pins are good, even if they don't appear to be growing during this flush. Often the following flush consists of mostly of those pins that continue to grow. Aborts are different. Aborts are pins that literally die and are of no use to a flush.

      PF cakes would have been the way to go if you intend to fruit from a fully colonized jar. This is not a quick hobby. Having a plan from the beginning is important because how you begin, PF cakes or grain, determines how you fruit. You asked if you can PC grain and bulk substrate in a large jar, inoculate, let it colonize then fruit straight out of the jar. Yes you can, but it may not fully colonize. Think about how difficult it would be to thoroughly shake/mix a large glass jar or how difficult  and how long it would be for the MYC to make its way completely through the entire jar. It sounds to me that the closest method to what you are describing would be the following: 1. Place properly prepared grain in the bottom of a grow bag . Place properly prepared bulk substrate on top of the grain. Use whatever ratio of grain to bulk you prefer. 2. Sterilize the bag/bags. 3. Inoculate the grain within the bag/bags through a self healing inoculation port. 4. Allow the grain to become 25% colonized then by hand mix the grain that's on the bottom of the bags. 5. Allow the grain to become 100% colonized then mix the entire bag and leave until 100% colonized. 6. Once the bags are 100% colonized you can fruit right inside of the bags.
