Looking for reinforcement as to what went wrong
    #11187684 - 10/05/09 05:23 PM (8 years, 20 days ago)

Ok, so I did BRF jars for my first grow.  I birthed one jar as insurance for future prints, and spawned the others to coir.  The others are still spawing the coir substrate.  The one cake I birthed has very small fruits(biggest being 1.5") that are at harvest maturity.  Im going to pick them off, dunk again, and see if I get better fruits on the second flush.  I think that I birthed the cake to early and the myc kept colonizing in the fruiting chamber, which in turn, drained most of the water it got from the dunk, leaving not much for the fruitbodies.  The cake is very light feeling.  Hopefully, another dunk will remedy the small fruitbodies.  What do you all think?

You got mushrooms so I would say nothing went wrong. Cakes naturally produce smaller shrooms. You will get larger ones from bulk methods.

This cake was only for more spores, and the rest went into bulk growing.  I dont have a PC yet, so Im still stuck with brf cakes to spawn with.  It was a success in the sense that I got mushrooms, you are correct there.  But most cakes I see have much bigger mushies associated with them, so thats what i am fishing for.

the first flush can tend to be a little less "hearty" than the second or third, especially if you didnt dunk before the first flush.

but it can be genetics, i have had cakes that throughout 4 flushes only produced 3 mushrooms per flush but they were about 15-30 grams a piece. and I have had cakes that produced about 10-20 mushrooms per flush at 3-10g a piece. all under the same conditions.

thats what happens with ms inoculation
