    I pulled this tray from dark 78 degree incubator and pulled it on day 10 because it was well over a hundred percent colonized. It has been in the shotgun fruiting chamber since then no pins nothing no foul smell just been dabbing the yellow liquid off of it every now and then when needed other than that you see everything else can you please tell me why I'm not seeing any action.. Oh so frustrating I don't understand I feel like I'm doing everything right but I am getting the same results every single time which are nothing what the heck is going on this cannot be this hard I've fruited some mushrooms before mostly from a brf cakes and not from substrates. I've gotten a total of two alacabenzi mushrooms from a substrate a little bigger than that and I fruited to mushrooms off of a mini mono penis envy substrate and then it got contaminated and everything else I've gotten was off of brf cakes

    You could try giving it some wood ash mixed with water that might initialize pinning. You can boil the combination to make sure it is safe to use.

    What water are you using? Fruiting setup?

    Bottled water..regular purified..not tap..although if heard from a few places tap water is fine..also some say distilled..what do you say? And my fruiting setup is just a shotgun fruiting chamber filled with perlite as you can see in the picture just a smaller mini mono 25qrt

    Wood ash could be a lime alternative , but the ph would vary and need to be tested.
    could be used in pasteurization applications .
    I do not recommend starting a fire to mix ashes in water to pour on your colonized sub to get pins
    Stick with basic fruiting conditions till you perfect those parameters
