hey guys.
been working on this for awhile now and i finnaly made it through this stage.
spawned some colonised grain to bulk sub and put then in containers.there are still small little patches but the white myc is strong and moving along quickly.i have one container in the fruiting chamber already along with one i'm fruiting inside the jar that i topped with some sub.:)

I would have put all the substrate in one big bin, thats what is meant by 'bulk'...lots at once! The bigger chunk of mycelium usually results in bigger mushrooms. Your size tray will still be ok but I think there is room for improvement. It all looks healthy though, good job!

A nice layer of straight verm would be my next move and get them in a fruiting chamber.

Looks good. You will want to be careful. That thick tall mycelium can easily over lay to create an inpenetrable layer. Cubes usuall do not have a problem with overlay but if it gets to thick then it can be a problem. Just make sure it does not dry out any and try to keep as much condensation off of the surface as possible.

Yeah, I mean since your bulk sub looks like its ready, case it up and attempt fruiting. It looks very healthy, and should be able to take off. Dry verm would work nice, or you could even try a mix of verm and coir.

I'd case with damp verm and give em some light and air. 1/4 inch of verm is all that is needed imho.

Great job!

Fruiting is the next part.
I put all the trays into the fruiting bin.
Might add a casing layer to the smaller trays.

looking good, keep your humidity around the nineties, expose to light and fan a few times daily and within no time at all you will be blessed w/ fruits.

I added a casing layer to the trays.

Purchased it from a vendor not listed here.
It is made up of fine verm coir and calcium carbonate.

btw I prefer a medium to course verm to case with. In no way do you want to not allow the shit to breath or foul things happen.

more pics as promised.
I'll get better ones as they mature.

I'm not happy with the pinset i got but next time i'll try harder.
Hopefully i'll have big fruits.
I've got my fingers crossed.

Keep an eye on the bottom of those if they are clear trays cause you will get fruits on the bottom.
