Mushroom Growing need help! PICS
    #15250866 - 10/20/11 06:48 AM (3 years, 2 months ago)

This is what they looked like first the temp was around 75F and 99RH.

Then in a day or 2 they started turning blue and if you notice they started growing from the bottom of the cake so I flipped it over.






This is another cake that had to flip over again and is pinning from the top.


My question are do these cakes look contaminated?
Why do the mushroom caps dry out?

It looks to me like there is a lot of aborts on those cakes. And that maybe some of your bigger mushrooms are either intensely bluing or rotting. How heavy are you misting? Is your FC up to specs? Also don't flip a cake over that is not your problem and the mushrooms form where they will strive the best. I would say your problem is a contam or to much water :shrug: wait for some other opinions but don't flip your cakes anymore.

What does rotting mean?
I mist every time the RH goes down to 80.
My temp is 73F and RH is 99.
So I shouldn't flip them back over?

Rotting as in spoiling or going bad. Can't say for sure but thats what it appears to me, and a lot of those pins are aborts for sure. What kind of fruiting chamber are you using? If you are using an SGFC with 1/4 in holes on all six sides and 4-5 inchs of damp perlite your RH should not be dropping to 80 percent. You should be misting about 3-4 times a day, and fanning 5-6. Just in case they are not contamed or rotting I would flip them back over. But any that are black pick off because they are not going to grow and will begin to spoil your whole cake. If they are not rotten then you can save them and eat them.

Well man I would put 1/4 in holes on all six sides, it also lookis like you only got an inch and a half of perlite you need 4-5. Thats why your humidity drops the way it does. I mist when the cakes look like they need which does average out to about 3-4 times a day. But also my SGFC has enough perlite and holes.

For some reason the water from the perlite evaporates easily and water comes out from the bottom when I strain the perlite through water.

That looks like bluing and they look really dry. I would harvest and dunk for twenty-four hours.

I don't quite get what your saying here. But man there is good reasons why you should have a properly built SGFC and 4-5 inchs of perlite. Your RH should not be dropping to 80. Fix those problems and mist 3-4 times a day and I would bet my bottom dollar that your problems will go away :shrug: If 4-5 inchs of perlite and 1/4 inch holes on all six sides was not the best way to do it people wouldn't ya know? Don't take this the wrong way but unless you follow a proven tek without shortcuts your not going to be gettng optimal results. Thats the plain and simple truth.

If the veil is broken underneath it is ready. Looks like it from here but can't say for sure from this angle.
