shrooms starting to wrinkle
    #16047958 - 04/05/12 03:25 PM (2 years, 4 months ago)

info:
used PF Tek: cambodian, full 24hr dunk, then roll on perlite Shotgun FC. my hygrometer reads around 60-70.

I managed to pick 2 shrooms that reached the point of their veil breaking. the others were about to reach that point but suddenly stopped and started looking dry and wrinkled around cap area. next day they look even more wrinkled and stem is turning blue-ish tint.

i've been misting, but i can't seem to keep humidity over 65, and fanning. temperature has been around 75-80.

pictures (cakes on the left are Cambodian, the right are Treasure Coast but were placed there about 1.5 weeks after, so i'm not too worried about them now.)




this is my first grow.

I can tell by the fruit that your humidity is fine.  Your hygrometer is fucked.  That's just splitting on the cap caused by rapid growth.  If the substrate is dry, simply pour some water on top of it or set the cake in a saucer of water for a few hours.

RR, 

How should a properly hydrated cake feel, slick almost slimy or kind of tacky/sticky

i think it has more to do with the weight of the cake

If you do like RR said and set it in a saucer of water with a weight on it, just let is set for 8 hours or so, it'll be obvious that the cake is hydrated because you'll notice a lot of the water has been absorbed by the cake and also the cake will be noticeably heavier.

Never be afraid to speak your mind, but always be willing and able to expand it.
