Hey guys i want you to look look at my brf cakes and tell me how they look I’m 7 days in after birthing and dunking them and no signs of pinning but the mycelium has grown over the casing and clumping up on top of the cakes.
My fruiting chamber has no holes i couldn’t afford a drill and I've been misting and fanning about 2x to 3x a day and I’m using a small LED lamb that sits off to the side any advice?

Its been a while since Ive done this method , but they look clean and healthy to me. Nice. 

 

Whats is your temp range and do you have a digital gauge for humidity? 

 

Be patient You are almost there.

Maybe someone with more recent experience will chime in.  :)

good luck

Looks a bit dry. You can get by without holes. Keep up the misting a and fanning. And close that lid between fanning. You should see some condensation. You did soak the perlite didn't you?

So i should keep the lid closed all the way no gaps and I keep them around 70-75 degrees and no I haven’t bought a digital thermometer/humidity reader yet

I think I've read that a build up of CO2 at the early stages of fruiting is not a bad thing and can stimulate pinhead formation. Just my 2 cents. 

Good luck!!

I would think you should leave it on, if you're really concerned about fresh air I've heard people putting the lid on upside down? I'd definitely leave it on until a more experienced member can comment.

It doesn't look like you have any holes in the bin. I'd still say close it up. Maybe don't lock down the handles.

You really should have holes inthe in the sides and bottom, covered w some tape or polyfill

Also looks dry
