Day 4 after spawning the GWM to sub

DSC01777 (Medium).JPG


I don't know whether to be impressed or worried with the speed of colonization. Worried by the potential harvest I might be facing, not a bad thing but my dehydrator may be inadequate to the task. Besides which I recently tore apart my cobbled together dehydrator made from a box fan that would have been up to the task. They are called monster for a reason and this is a 32 qt tub and if I get a canopy... I'm looking forward to getting a few spore prints. Everybody says 10 days is average but the surface was totally covered by day 3. This is as impressive as getting a shipment from China in 3 days. Has anyone else had this fast of a colonization? Do I need to worry about it coming after me in the middle of the night?


I'm hesitant to put it to FC so soon, any suggestions on how to proceed? I understand some varieties need a verm casing on top when putting to FC. Is this one of those times?

The day after the last post I put it to FC, it seems happy enough but no primordia development yet. The sub is pulling away from the tub sides. I put a piece of bubble wrap on top to try stimulating things but except for more mycelia growth nada. Do I need to put a casing layer of verm on it?

Pinning can stubborn sometimes
Most likely a little more time is all you need.
