No, give those at least a few more days to consolidate. It should look pretty much solid white everywhere.

The one on the left is 99% done, but you should still give it at least 2 more days.

The one on the right needs at least 2 or 3 days to finish plus another 2 or 3 to consolidate and thicken. So 4 days absolute minimum I'd say, but more likely 5 or 6.

PES Hawaiian. It’s growing pretty slowly but it’s very thick and solid....

That’s what she said.

And, for Canadian growers...the equivalent 3M Nexcare product on sale around here (Quebec, Eastern Ontario) doesn't say "micropore" anywhere on the package. Look for the phrases "Gentle Paper" and "Ruban en papier".

Yeah, I get the generic kind here too. It says "gentle paper", and in the description on the back it say's "breathable" as well.

 

I like micropore to dial in the FAE on mini monotub holes better than polyfil, and jar lids.

Sucks if it turns out as trich. To get the verm off, I use my fingernail not, when they're dry it will shave off, with dust from the stump. I used to use a toothbrush on dried ones, but that was tedious. When I had a big supply, I stopped worrying about wasting any active material. Plus you can collect up the dust/cut off ends with the verm, and make tea. Or make an alcohol extraction.

Don’t know what that is but the two I trashed smelled and were super white with no pinning. The rest are pinning well but I can smell it on them. If they all have it hopefully I can at least get a harvest before throwing them out.19c27fad4a083e2c1ac75a08deb812a0.jpg
This cake is a beast. There were even pins inside the mushies I picked.

Trich is mold, isn't it? It's the forest geen mold.

That looks like the stump of a previously picked mushroom to me, like you tore it off instead of twisting.

You can see the hole where the hollow stem would've been.

Deleena, exactly.

DoB, I was going by what RR said on "lets grow Mushrooms" vid. He sai, "trichoderma, the forest green mold". I googled it-

I got 5 1lb bags of substrate. I want to do one bag just to try it out, then maybe a couple trays in a tub. I’ve seen a lot of teks where you noc up the bag but not for already colonized grain. Would it take less since it’s already colonized? Pint? Quart? Is it as simple as dumping in, mixing, close, and wait? Add any water?
Sorry for all the questions. Searching multiple sites and I still struggle with finding specific answers.

Yes, that blue spot is from a picked mushroom. I’m hoping I’m mistaken on the trich. One cake definitely had it. The smell is what’s worrying me but maybe it’s nothing. I’m getting a little more patient and just waiting it out.

Never apologize for asking a question...

 

It is as simple as dump, mix, close, and wait... No water needed until after first flush....

 

I would dump a quart of grain in there, close her up with office clips, and let her rip....

Exactly. 1 pint will also work and colonize quickly, though. Good luck! May you recieve the beautiful canopies I do with the method!

I saw earlier in this thread, caked dunked in some water filled tupperware sort of tubs. I tried this recently and thought it was really super easy, more space efficient and seems to work.

 

Use the jars they birthed from. Replace the cakes, fill with water, close the lid and soak. Does anyone see any problems with doing it this way.
