Just a couple of plastic Rubbermaid bins with perlite on the bottom, I mist maybe like twice a day if I need too, they only have a couple tiny holes for air exchange but I hand fan them whenever I check on them, I let them sit in the jar for like 3 days after 100% since they been colonizing for so long, I'll get pictures up

You mean recommended to skip on the very first roll? Or the one after my flush,
I've only been able to get one jar to fruit out of like 7 or 8,
I read somewhere you have to re-dunk it after you scrape the Verm and pins off with a fork but it hasn't worked, I tried it with a half pint

Hello all, so I need help figuring out what I'm doing wrong here,

So I have 4 cakes in my terrarium right now, 3 1/2 pint and a regular sized jar cake,

2 of the half pints have been in there for like 2 or 3 weeks with only 1 having maybe 4 or 5 aborts and after that it sat for like a week with no pins or anythong so i dunked and rolled it again, and still nothing, and the other hasn't done anything yet, my temp is at 75 to 82 constantly and humitity is 95 to 99 the whole time, I can't figure out what is the deal.

My bigger cake had a decent flush for my first time grow, but now idk what to do, I harvested yesterday and left some of the smaller pins on, am I supposed to leave it be till another flush comes in or dunk and roll it again and take the pins off?

Please any help is greatly appreciated :) good vibes everyone

Yea I think you were right about the humidity problem... I made another batch and mixed with my last mycobag, that one bag made 2 smaller aluminum trays and a medium sized one,
this time I pasurized it like you said and I hung it up and let it drain for a day 1\2 close to 2 days and it wasn't really dripping anymore so I went ahead and mixed it,

 I did 2 of them with layers so its poo substrate layer in the middle and then a layer of poo on top, and the other I just mixed it around all over,

Do you think it would matter if it froze? Cuz I hung it in my garage to drain out and it froze over night, so I put it inside to finish draining and thawing it out

I cooked it at 170 180 deegrees for an hour or so and i let it drain and cool down for 2 or 3 hours
, i dumped it into my tub with the crumbled up substrate, and mixed up together very well with steralized latex gloves, and after I put a small layer of manure on top to kind of act like a casing layer,
I cut 4 larger holes in the bottom, in the corners and 2 up top on the ended for air exchange, as of right now all holes are covered with tape to keep humitity inside while it colonizes,
  Well it was more manure and straw than colonized substrate, I only used one bag to spawn to the bulk, is that ehy its taking so long?

 but some small spots in The corners of the tub are looking good and white but some spots in the middle look fuzzy like hair or something. Uh can't really tell what colors they are cause I've been keeping it in the dark and just checking on it with a flashlight, but it almost looks greyish like a darker color. Is that normal??

Yea I'll be sure to do that , my iPod is usually how I upload pics and stuff but my charger for it has been all Fed up so I don't really have a way to shoe you, I've been meaning to get some pics uploaded for a while  now

I guess it had to rebuild itself or something but it was all good after awhile, I spawned the bag to a monotub using steer manure and straw pasturizrd in a pillowcase, its been sitting for a week or so and I'm starting to see some kind of growth in there but idk if its normal, it looks fuzzy like lil white fuzzy spots on top in really small patches in the corners of the bin, is that normal?

sorry couldn't get pictures up couldn't figure it out,

is it normal for the bag to look like it has silvery lookin flakes all over it? i mean the mycellium is all over in the substrate but its not like super white its just kinda all over but i can still see brown pretty good through out the bag. im just a lil concerned..
cause i broke it up the first time cause i thought it was done but it wasnt so i let it wait some more and i broke it up a second time and it still looks about the same,

like its not totally and completly white but it is white and kinda like a brownish silvery flaky stuff all over, is that the vermiculite in it or what? im sure its just the BRF thats making it look kinda darker than normal but idk,
 i broke it up so i could fit the substrate in the bottom of the myco bag so the mushrooms could grow upwards ya know, but it just looks funky to me.

is that normal? ill try to post a pic of it a lil later tonight so you can check it out and see what you think... am i doing something wrong??

ohh ok well that doesnt sound that bad, almost sounds pretty simple. so you dont have to spray or fan it out daily?

so does it matter what kind of dung to get? or can i just go to wal mart or a garden store and just get any bag of dried dung?

does any pot work just as long its submerged fully when your pasturizing it?

one more question then i think i have everything i need haha

how long does it usually take before pinning starts?

like what kinda steps? isnt a monotub just like a mini bulk grow??
so thats it? just get 1 or 2 bags and mix it in with the compost in a bin? seems simple enough,
what about temp and humitity? or spraying etc...

what do you mean about the foil tray thing..? sorry im just a lil lost about that

Awesome! thanks for the advice dude, if you dont mind tho i have a couple more questions...

if i do the bulk substrate do i just wait till the bags are colonized and put them in a tub with the dung casing covering it? or wich way would be easier/more productive/faster? Because i was thinking of colonizing like 1 or 2 bags and put them in like a plastic bin or foil tub thing under the casing layer... thats what a mono tub is right?

so if i just put the bag in the light it will start to pin? 

does it mater if i break up the myceliem in the bag? ( cause i flated it to colonize faster)

thanks for the help dude, its nice to have someone respond so fast
sorry about so many questions... just like to be sure..

Hey guys! im new to this forum thing and just now figured out how to do this, but anywho i have some "noob" questions i cant seem to find answers for, i just wanna make sure. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Anywho this is second attempt at growing mushrooms,  first time i tried BRF cakes with ecuador strain, 2 good jars outa 6 1/2 pint jars, i put them into my terrarium and keept temp. humitity, and light up but nothing for like 2 or 3 weeks. this time around i have a BRF mycobag i ordered from Earthstounge, i steralized and innoculated 2 or 3 weeks ago and all seems to be going good so far, i just have a few questions about what to do next...

1. can i spawn the mushrooms directly in the bag itself?

2. should i keep it sealed untill the first flush? or should i take it out and dunk it?

3. whats a casing layer exactly? or what can i use for a casing layer for my bags?

any kind of help would be awesome,
thanks guys ;]
