    First attempt,but long time lurker looking for some help

    Escondido spore syringe
    2 qts sterilized Rye Berry
    5 lbs. Sterilized Substrate

    1 modifed monotub
    1 small shoebox

    * inoculated 2 qts of Sterilized rye berry with 3ml of Escondido spore from HDS.

    * sat for 5 weeks untily fully colonized, shaken at 4 weeks.
    * mixed with Substrate and wrapped with saran wrap, placed in dark for 15 days.
    * I then placed both tubs in indirect light (12hrs) and have been waiting for pinset.. Tub has continued to colonize, as pics show. Should I be more patient, or did I miss a step ?
    Pics only of smaller tub. But both tubs look very similar , thanks for any help ! 20201014_160955.jpg 20201021_183604.jpg 20201024_220519.jpg 20201014_160955.jpg 20201021_183604.jpg 20201024_220519.jpg

    Here are recent pics of both tubs, both have pins. Question, I should be spraying on top and sides of container only with distilled water and NOT the substrate, correct? Thanks again, all. 20201027_163758.jpg 20201027_163905.jpg

    You're looking great. I dont spray anymore but have sprayed the sub without issues. Keep spaying the way you are.

    I usually just mist the walls, maybe a little quick mist over the top and let it fall to the sub and then fan.
