My opinion is less water and more air. Just based on how huge and stunted they look. Maybe someone else with more experience can chime in.
After soaking it 24 hours last Friday I hadn't really watered other than a few spritzes here and there. I have a 4" PC fan on a smart plug timer set to run 30 minutes every four hours. I figured that would suffice instead of fanning the lid for air exchange. I had the fan on constantly but I think it was drying the substrate, well helping it dry.
I was thinking that it looked a little dry. I feel like if he were over-misting the caps would look more translucent. Plus I don't see any condensation on the tub, but that's also not the best indicator of humidity.
The substrate feels moist, although I don't know how it should feel for prime growing. This seems to makes sense though, the photo of the three, the one in the middle if you pinch the cap it feels hollow, and along with some of the last pickings had hollow stems. Maybe hollowness it is due to not enough water to properly form solid bodies.
Being neither of you mentioned contamination, I might as well play with it. Probably have another month at least until bag two is ready to fruit.
At this point as well, with not much to loose, thinking I may break it all up again and form it better and put down some perlite. I have some 1.26 cup storage containers, could mold a couple of those.
