For my very first bulk grow I inoculated bags of Uncle Bens Ready Rice with a Golden Teacher spore syringe. When fully colonized I mixed it with a bulk substrate of pasteurized coco coir at a ratio of 1 part rice to 2 parts coir and laid it 4-inches deep in a 12-qt Perlite tub. Instead of a casing layer I applied 2 layers of cheesecloth and misted. I have kept the air temperature in my closet mycochamber at a steady 77 degrees.
Now 6 days later the cloth is pretty much fully colonized, with cute little protuberances emerging, which I assume is mycelium but not pinning. Attached is a top view and a side view. As you can see there is plenty of moisture on the sides of the tub, but no visible moisture droplets on the substrate surface. How does this look to you? How much longer should I continue incubating before introducing fruiting conditions?
Thanks and best wishes..
