Good to know. What's the trash bag liner do and how min extra do I leave? Do I fold it over the sub when I incubate?

Yes.

Then cut the excess off at the top of the sub when its time to fruit.

Sweet. Spawned 2 54qt tubs and just innoc'ed some more seed using my LC. All new for me so let's see how things go. I'll leave the tubs for 10 days incubating. When should I see growth in jars?

hi Viking , fruit the tubs when the top is covered with mycelium, might be 10 days or so depending on temps , genetics ect.

oyster shells can be found at feed & grain stores or farm stores if you have any nearby.

( edit - oyster shells are often fed to egg laying chickens, if this helps- poultry supplies )

 I have some basic experience but still learning.

     good harvest

heres a pic of a mini 6qt tub that just started fruiting , grown in low temps around 68F. you will most likely have a better grow with your tubs.

Ok I'll post a pic tomorrow. Coverage is good but could be thicker I guess. What are the different types of growth? I see patterns growing out in a circle pattern and then other more fuzzy spots

I agree ^ they are ready to fruit.

the circle pattern of  mycelium growth is hpyphae fillaments - rizomorphic mycelium growth reaching out from all sides to connect to other mycelium and grow into one living unit. that rope like growth is very desirable - healthy/ productive growth.

 you should do very well.

you shouldn't need lime with coir/verm/shells.. none are acidic and the shells will help buffer.. you want lime more so when using peat moss or anything else that's acidic. use the 50/50+ recipe.. 50% coir 50% verm and about oyster shells, depending on the amount of the 100% you use

Sounds good. Do I want it just as wet as the sub (field capacity)?

So my casing layer is colonizing quickly, but I thought that wasn't the point but rather just to hold moisture and promote evap. Things look healthy but not as I expected. Any thoughts?
