I am a real, real beginner when it comes to growing mushrooms. The thing i started with is a Treasure Coast growbag. I started the kit on july 11th, and this is how it looks now, july 26th:
Pinning has started like 3 days ago, and I can count around 35 pins at this moment. I know TC can be a bit on the slower side, but my question is about the white funghi on the pins: is this normal? And some advice on humidity maybe? I spray the sides of the grownbag once every day.

And the good news is: I just ordered a pressure canner  :rolleyes: So I can start making my own cakes!!!

Looks to me like humidity is high... Myc will often start growing on the fruit bodies themselves when the humidty is through the roof... I would say that you are likely in good shape... Increase FAE (Fresh Air Exchange aka fanning) a little if you are concerned...

Thanks for the fast reply. Luckily for me that was what I was already thinking. I will spray a bit less water in the coming days.

July 7 I could harvest. The middle stayed mostly a big open spot. But around the edges of the kit I picked 99 grams fresh.
I read the first flush of TC they might be a bit smaller... We'll see the next round.
