Looking good!! I'm jealous, I love kings. They make the best bacon substitute. I like to slice them thinly an fry em with cinnamon, butter and coconut oil til they get brown and crispy.

Today, my only concern is that it wants water and that the vermiculite isn't providing it with enough. I mist it directly and through the verm 3-5x a day and it sucks it up. It literally can't get enough.

You're probably still going to get a good flush, but your cakes are gonna deflate like a balloon. Kings need thick substrates, bags work best, or fruit straight from full spawn jars.

That's what I was doing originally (see first post), but it got wet bubble.

I bet that one could set up a hydroponic grow with cakes with this species.

Re-positioned the cakes to allow them room to fruit properly.

Alrighty, I'm having my own moment of paranoia with the exact same species but in a different cropping container (6L shoe boxes).

I spawned 1L grain spawn (itself inoculated with LC derived from store bought tissue cloned to agar) on 12/12/2017 to 4L of a 50/50 mix of paper pet bedding and hardwood sawdust (pasteurized for 3 hours). The container was wiped out with 70% alcohol and bleached before filling. The container was fully colonized on 19/12/2017. It was then stuck in the cold (12-15C) to initiate fruiting. Pin set didn't occur until 27/12/2017.

Today (31/12/2017) looking at them I'm wondering if something is wrong with them.

The biggest of these is maybe 1.5" tall.

bf8ada61c79a16f98f71974780e74e2d.jpg

In a moment of paranoia I pruned out all the suspicious fruits but failed to take close up photos (kicking myself for not). What I will say is what appears to be pitting or tissue missing on the caps is actually the normal pigmentation of the cap showing through gaps in a white layer on the cap (Does anyone know if King's have a veil when they're tiny?).
Additionally those weird dark spots on the stipes aren't droplets of liquid. They are actually embedded or part of the stipe.

That thin and aired mycelium is not typical, may be the reason the smaller pins aborted. Not sure of the spots on the stem but the ones on the caps are typical. Did you have these guys in a enclosed tub? Just wondering because of the small caps. Generally the caps on king oysters when grown inside are not broad anyway. I have found that with all the edible mushrooms grown inside, they grow best in a clear plastic tote next to a window with the lid off.
You have done well to get fruits from this strain, they are not the easiest to grow inside. Keep growing and posting......

I just have them in a regular monotub with perlite on the bottom. The surface is a bit mangled where I cut out the pins I was suspicious of. Fortunately I've been home for the last week so I could fan them several times a day. I know Kings can deal with a lower RH but I wasn't sure the house is humid enough to just leave the lid off.

Here's a picture of another bin I haven't fruited yet. I presumed the airial mycelium was because of the very humid space between the substrate and the lid.

Lid off? Won't they dry out?
