The monotub has since fully colonized. It was set back a week because of humidity issues. I was using a press'n seal cover with a fan pointed indirectly at it to promote FAE while I was out of town. I ended up using the original lid to much better success.
I cased it a week ago with 3/4" of pasteurized vermiculite. Yesterday the surface began to pin:
The side started pinning a bit earlier :loveeyes::
These fruits are between 4" and 6" long and put the mushrooms I got off of the cakes to shame. The caps on the large ones are much darker than the others, although the pins on both grows have been uniformly long and thin.

There was a lot of invitro growth between the substrate block and the walls of the monotub.
Still, I pulled a few big guys off and ended up with a few ounces of mushrooms.

Still, the surface is knotting up pretty well and I think I'll get a much more even pinset on the second flush. :loveeyes:

There's postal grade tyvek taped with the print facing in, is that what you mean?

Since this was my first try with it I'm wondering how you guys do your air exchanges with Press N' Seal lids. Do you take them off every day and fan manually or just let them sit and exchange passively?

Research indicates the Huautla strain can deliver strong hallucinations and 'spiritual encounters'. Any advice from anybody would be very helpful!

The cakes yielded fairly average for a multispore grow, there were no contams and colonization was relatively quick. I've had great luck getting prints from mature fruits with hardly any effort - all my prints were dark and the spores fell readily. They pinned quickly and I had few aborts. You could do a lot worse than starting with Huautlas - at the very least they were forgiving of my neglect.
Strong hallucinations and spiritual encounters indeed! I don't think you'll be disappointed, friend.
Edit: And welcome! You should start an introductory thread, and let all the growers say hi :)
