I have bombarded this thread with topics.. Well no more! I'm gonna keep my posts and questions on here now. 

It's been approximately 2 weeks and 5 days since I've introduced my penis envy to fruiting conditions and I am patiently waiting for pins. 

56236253_378581289404990_7275876076339855360_n.jpg   This is my setup.. i keep my tub area at 70-73. I air out the area around my

tub 2-3 times a day. 

I mist and fan twice a day, 12 hours or so in between. My light cycle is the same, 12 hours a day.

7a.jpg    this is the current state of it. it has definitely spread out a lot more, hoping to see pins soon but not rushing them at the same time. Im sure the best advice y'all could give me is to wait so that's what I'm doing.

 

If you have any tips let me know! I will post all my progress here from now on.

Update me on that casing material.
It looks like it's got a lot of roughage in it.

 

Nice to see you start your own thread and keep everything about this grow in one place.

This is the casing i used. It does not specify what it consists of. Excuse my ignorance but what do you mean by roughage?

I have wondered about the big chunks and thought maybe i should pick them out if they're too heavy for the pins to get through. Each of the big chunks has fuzz under it but it also has a little bit on the bottom. Will these chunks keep it from pinning? some are flat pieces about a half in inch wide, One of them is like a stick almost, and the rest are like large chunks of dirt or bark or something. When lifting these up i can see the fuzz that i see on the top of the smaller chunks but they never escape from under the chunks. Should i remove them?

The big chunks were what I was referring to as roughage.
I don't know if it pick them out now.

Next time sift if  or better yet stay away from it and go with seed starter or vermiculite.

considering they have myc on the bottom of the chunks, How about instead of removing them completely I lift them off of the myc patches and set them to the side? would this be safer than removing them? It definitely seems like those chunks have slowed it all down.

Also, do you think since my tub is kinda translucent then my lighting might not be sufficient enough? I've thought about putting them on the tub instead of the inside of the chest.

 

Y'all have also said that they don't need much lighting.

They don't need much light. If you can see the mushrooms, they're getting enough light.

I guess my forecast for pins over the weekend was off!
I don't understand why these are stalled.

The picture is too small for me to see any knotting but the center area still looks like you have growth.

Im giving them their alone time. I make sure it stays wet but i havent been misting directly just very lightly and on the walls. 

Just gonna keep waiting. I know these are tricky, Hopefully it still works and i get some fruits.

Are they in a spot with ambient light? If they are in ambient light during the day just use that. If you have to provide light, turn it off a couple days.

I can attest to jkdeths suggestion.  My grow had stalled.  So I put a layer of bubblewrap on them and left for a couple days as he suggested (leave a little space on the sides of the tubs, aka don't completely cover it).  This creates a CO2 layer.

 

After two days of the bubble wrap, my tub had exploded with knots and I had fruits within a week.

This is how it looks now. It definitely has tons of knotting now. How should i treat it to make it pin? what should my misting and fanning cycle be?
