It's been while since I've completed a dub tub style grow of cubensis. I usually wait untill I see fruiting body's to expose "open air" FAE (fanning). I've got a quite a bit of cube grows under my belt, so I'll say I've had more success with waiting untill the fruit body's appear befor FAE. Could be speculation. But I'm in a sort of rush due to no supply.

My question is, when is the best time to expose open air? After knotting? Or when actual fruit body's appear? Also my bulk substrate consist of 50% grain spawn 50% coco coir.

only after fully colonized, risk contamination beforehand. That's usually the time you start seeing knots, perfect time to initiate a primo pinset with some fresh air.

Is the picture not displaying "knotting"?. I sometimes only use straight coir in the substrate and there are parts that appear uncolonized throughout the whole fruiting process.

Here's an example of knotting and primordia forming. End result where clusters Corumba Brazil Clone. I hope it helps.Knotting.jpg ccbb2.jpg You can see knots around the mushrooms and in the first pic around the primordia. The little white knots. I can kinda see some in your pic but it is hard to tell.

There she goes, see what I'm saying though about the substrate being only coco coir and resulting in what appears to be uncolonized substrate? It throws me off when gauging the appropriate time to expose open air. IMG_20211107_200640748.jpg

I found myself with too much spawn once, had to use all six of tge tubs I had for "" bottoms". I melted a few holes in lids, covered holes with micropore, and let it run til pinset, then added the top tub. I've done it tge same way ever since. Being lazy, and a pro procrastinator Ive had the pins nearly push the lid off a few times.
