If it were me..... and you said 6qt's that I assume are clear, I would just put the lids on until you see baby mushrooms starting to pop up. Once you see them, then take the lids off and put them in the fruiting chamber. Or since you already peeked put the other half of the dub tub on and just wait it out. Try to stick with one tek instead of mixing multiples and asking how to fix. Save the casing plan for a different experiment after you get a few more grows under your belt.
So, yes the tubs are clear, but with black liner. Original lids (not clear, dark blue and not transparent) with holes covered with pore tape have been placed on for colonization, then I trimmed the excess liner away, per DonShadow.
I have followed DonShadows tek, I feel to a T (with the exception that his tubs appear a slight bit smaller & I am keeping the standard incubation temp going as opposed to Dons 72° because I have the tools to do so. His tek was assuming one does not have the means to). I have also kept wharfs tek in mind since it is using 6qt and I went by his 10 day advice at the incubation temperature because I could control that temp easiest. Outside of that its Don.
Both teks are utilizing a cover method for colonization be it tinfoil or the original lids with pore tape. Colonization days are from 10-16 depending on incu. temps.
I have followed that exactly. Both teks call for a casing. Yes I understand that people say cubes do not have to have, but, follow the tek right???
I could be misinterpreted, but I don't feel like I have asked for anyone to fix anything nor do I believe that I have "overmixed" multiple teks.
I did ask these 2 questions:
"Any suggestions on how many more days I should give it"? "How many times is too many to uncover and look in on"?
I have read and been told on multiple occasions that if I have a question don't hesitate to ask it..... Is this no longer the case? Just looking for some insight Brother. Not looking to agitate anyone.
