spent cakes?
    #11178213 - 10/04/09 01:36 AM (8 years, 10 months ago)

so i'm on my 3rd flush with a couple cakes, 2nd flush with others, i dunk and roll every time but now when they pin the next day they look rotted, they'll come in blue and then turn to black.  i dont know why theyre coming in blue, i keep the rh between 95 and 98% and mist them every hour or so.  when i dunk them they sit for 18-22 hours depending on what i have going on that day and when i'm home.  are the cakes just spent? i have one that has a ton of pins which looked fine yesterday and today they're black.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Stop misting them. The high RH is good enough. Too much moisture is a bad thing in some cases. Just keep a good air exchange going without letting the humidity drop too much. If still nothing in a week then theyre probably spent..

^^i knew too much moisture is bad but because they were bluing i thought i was cuz they were too dry, i'll stop misting them and see what happens.
