I`m new here and quite curious as well.
Has allmost landed after my best tripp ever, and feel very familiar with your description :)
I`m a newbe to growing, and have made one successful cake that has birthed out.
but made some mistakes, where dumping was done wrong, was one of the mistakes.
not alot of shrooms, but some
Got several cakes on the way that seems promising, where i wait for pinning signs on two of them.
Learned that they should stay "cold" before pinning
can see some clusters of "knots", is that early pins?
