I have run basic varieties of cubes in the past, but I am trying PE for the first time...I am also trying a casing for the first time, as I've heard it can be helpful to PE in order to not grow weird fruits. If that is bologna, please let me know because the hyphal knots on the colonized substrate were beautiful before I covered them w a casing lol.

multi spore syringe -> agar -> wbs -> coco/straw/manure
Casing is coir w some gypsum
Temps are 74-79, rh is 92-98%

First pic self explanatory
Second pic sub colonized
Third pic tonight, casing nearly colonized, fruiting initiated
Fourth pic, close up of third pic

Thanks! I hadn't grown any in a couple years because I got stocked up, but I wanted to get back into it. I have a Pan syringe but I wanted to grow some cubes to get back into the swing of things first. Long story short, all my PE LCs, agar plates and grain bags were successful, so it looks like I'll be growing PEs for some time

I can't believe the concentration of pins on this sub! There are probably a hundred or more of them on here. The container is about 10"x6" and the sub is about 4" deep. I call it PE #10 because it is the 10th strain I got from agar plates, but it colonized the fastest. A bag of my PE#9 wbs just got put into some manure/coco sub. #7 and #8 are still on agar, and #1-#6 are all LCs from MS syringe. I'm excited to compare the different types of mushrooms that can be grown from one MS syringe.

They're looking pretty nice so far...one of them is growing an extra cap off of its cap

Hey everyone...came out to the shed tonight to refill the humidifier, and I find some of the fruits are looking like the caps have opened already, and they aren't even 2" tall. Are these caps looking like they've opened, or do PE just look like that? Thanks!

Some chunky little fruits you got there. They look like they've got a ways to go . I've only run PE a few times but there's always a few that start to curl up early it seems. Lookin good and healthy. I like the dark caps on those.

Thanks! This is my first time messing with them and I thought the caps weren't even supposed to open lol. They seem to grow very slowly too, other cubes I've grown in the past would've been harvested already. I think they've been fruiting for 8 days and are still only a couple inches tall. But if that's how they're supposed to look, then I'm happy!

PE genetics you can way a long time to harvest. Those have at least another week I would bet. Just keep an eye on them, healthy and growing you can wait till the cap edges start to curl up and the stipes start to soften.
