I get chunks of mycelium and even some mycellium dust but never pins. When I take it out if the incubator, it dies back. When I leave it in the incubator it dies back then grows orange mold. Any advice?
This is the first time I have tried it with individual bags. I was previously using laundry baskets inside large garbage bags.
I would think that it would pin when it thought it had run out of food. This could also be seasonal, as it would like to display its spores at a time when they could grow on any other substrates that would likely be around at that time. I have found that if I remove it just before it pins, it can keep growing, but I would need to add more substrate.

So your theory, assuming the "season" is right (i am growing inside) is that the substrrate is not yet fully exhausted of nutrients?
