thanks so much for your advice dub, I hope to be posting some pics soon.

I failed miserably - no fruiting at all.  There's several things I may have done wrong... anybody know of a good simple idiot-proof tek for pans?

I'm a first timer and so more than open to suggestions.  In fact I'd love some advice.  It sounds like you would fruit them as cakes or in the jars, whereas I thought casing was necessary with pans... Considering the first stage (colonization) has been rather problematic, what would you suggest is the safest way to fruit?

I did inject the jars with distilled water and the growth sped up considerably.  The bluing is still there, but it's a lighter blue... I'd say all jars are fully colonized now, maybe five out of six... I'm going to wait one more week and then case them... should I submerge them completely in water for an entire day before casing them?

So what is the bluing on the mycelium?  is it dead or damaged mycelium mass??

Would casing them with perlite be fine?  or would you suggest something else?

Malabar - some of my jars seem to be reaching full colonization, but what does the presence of bluingm mean?

Thank you dub and malabar, I will try injecting distilled water to the substrate and see what happens...

Here are some examples of the most and least colonized jars I have after 60 days...





The most colonized jars have a light blue coloration where the mycelium is thickest... any ideas?

Should I perhaps be casing now?  Could I send you some pictures...?

Now, question - if it's been 60 days and some jars are only halfway colonized, should I think that in 60 more days the entire jar will be colonized or is the pan's mycelium simply too fragile or too thin to fully colonize a vermiculite and brown rice jar?  Is there anything I can do now to help the mycelium grow?  I already have it at about 84 degrees Farenheit.  Why must the entire jar be colonized before mushroom fruit can grow?
thanks again...

Thank you dub 504, would you mind elaborating? "spawn to straw, case then fruit."

I am growing a very small and potent type of psylocibin mushroom (Panaeolus Cyanescens) in brown rice cakes... The mycelium has been trying to colonize my jars for 60 days and it's not quite there yet... wondering if there's any way I can help them out...
