Thanks! My best advice for noobs is:
1. Mist gently with a good water mister (I use this one: Beautify Beauties Flairosol Hair... [link])
2. Be as sterile as you can. Nitrile gloves and 70% rubbing alcohol are essential.
3. Lots of patience.
Mush love to everyone! 🍄❤️🙏
I have to wet mine down each morning and scrunch with a bit of gel and leave in conditioner. This spray bottle is wonderful.
I personally use distilled but I’ve used tap water in a pinch to mist and to soak. I’m lucky to live somewhere with very clean tap water...if you don’t or have hard water, go with distilled. A gallon is like 89 cents at the store. But yeah one of those fine misters works great, definitely recommend over a normal mist/spray bottle. You want a beauty/hair spray type or “flairosol” type mister.
Not sure if I can add a link, but here’s the one I have and it’s perfect
It depends on your hair type for sure, but after several months of trial and error I've found a method that keeps my hair looking nice (or better!) on days 2, 3 and 4:
• Sleep with my hair pulled up in a velvet scrunchie on top of my head ("pineapple")
• In the morning, spray it all until it's pretty damp but not soaking with one of these, and detangle it a bit with my fingers (hard to describe but I make this kind of pinching motion and tug down on the strands until they line up better)
• dispense a couple pumps of Innersense I Create Lift foam into my hands and scrunch it back up into my hair
• let it air dry and then scrunch out the slight amount of crunch
I do have a little bit of frizz, but it isn't bad, mostly it just looks like "volume." But it only takes about 5 minutes to refresh and really reliably looks good!
How much do you mist? Do you have a good water mister? This is the one I use: Beautify Beauties Flairosol Hair... [link]
I might be wrong, but your substrate looked pretty dry from the pictures. Did you rehydrate your substrate overnight after harvesting? Mushrooms take in a lot of water from the substrate so it needs to be rehydrated for each subsequent flush.
Hope that helps!
Get a micro spray bottle, you are probably getting pooling water with the regular one. Trust me it's worth it. You need tiny beads of water, no big drops
I think you might be throwing gravel in the fine machinery by trying to automate the process. Misting and fanning manually let's you keep an eye on conditions and get a feel for what's appropriate.
From my experience with a fogger for reptile enclosures, they can easily saturate everything in moisture. It doesn't take much. And since you want the surface conditions to be tiny droplets of water, a fogger might actually be overdoing it.
This is the mister I got. It releases a really fine mist that you can easily control. Better so that a traditional spray bottle with a mist setting.

If you scroll up above, you'll see that u/Lit-Logistics said this one is good
Something lime this?
I saw this one recommended here & it's the one I am getting
If you don't want to shower in the morning, a good spray mister should refresh your curls.
Does it atomize the water?
It needs to turn the water into a cloud essentially with something like this.
Get yourself an ultra fine mister. 100% worth it.
Having a this has changed my routine for the better. I can’t recommend it enough! I’ve had this one for over a year and use my Kikumasamune Sake Skin Lotion in it.
