Cake Problem
    #1047391 - 11/12/02 08:15 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I have a couple of cakes in the fruiting stage, but for some reason, the mushrooms only grow from the bottom of the cakes. In every picture I see, mushrooms are coming from everywhere on the cakes, but every single pin I get is on the very bottom. I'm not getting very large flushes so this is starting to get on my nerves. Anyone have any idea why this is happening? I do have my cakes directly on the perlite, but from my understanding, the only downside to this is getting fat ass mushrooms, which I have not had a problem with.

I have not tried this yet, but try this: take a syringe and fill it with 10cc of water, stick this into the cake and inject the water, but as you are injecting pull the syringe upward so that the water is evenly distributed. The problem you are having is probably that the cakes are too dry, so this is what I suggest.

I am fairly certain the cake is not too dry, as my terrarium is too humid almost, because every time I open the lid, water just poors off of it.

the cake moisture is ok,,maybe a little high,,because the cakes are directly on the perlite,,you should put them on foil or the lids,,they are growing toward the moisture,,so they are spouting on the bottom,so just flip them over and let them grow sraight out toward the sky,,mine where on a rack and sprouted on the bottom ,and turned out great,,just dunk in between flushes and get them off the perlite

or you can rest the cake on something dark so the light wont reflect off the perlite and your mushrooms grow down towards it
