Hello all Help needed.
    #11199868 - 10/07/09 01:11 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

Hi not long joined and what a great site it is too, I really want to start growing myself in the future so will be doing lots of reading but for now wondered if any of you could help me out please?

Here goes, I traded some smoke for a growbag with a tupperware box, in the tupperware box was a nearly fully mouldy cake (the white stuff) now the person I got it off said all I had to do was add some water to the vermiculite in the bag(white)and then place the tupperware tub on vemiculite inside the bag with the lid off and exchange the air a few times a day as well as misting the cake.  So done that and a couple of weeks later got some shrooms from it :smile: I wont be seeing that person again so am a bit stuck on what to do next.

There is tiny mushrooms forming but there not growing big anymore, is that the end of the cake? or can I revive it is what I want to know and how?

Its been about 7 weeks since the lids been off and about 2 weeks since anything big has grown on it.

I can provide pictures of what it looks like now if needed.


Thanks in advance

TheNewt

Pics for sure. You will get much better results doing it yourself anyway.

remove the pins that are not growing (called aborts) and then dunk the cake in water for 12-16 hours.

then place the cake back into the bin (called a fruiting chamber)

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

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.

dunking is the process of replenishing moisture to your substrate that has been used or evaporated during the fruiting stage

That shit looks slimy. If it is, your substrate is infected with bacteria. Toss it, if this is the case.

Yeah id say toss it man. No worries though, there is plenty of info and people here willing to help you do this all on your own.  You could have a nice personal shroom factory going in a month to a month and a half.

Ah ok thanks mate. Nah its no problem at will deffinatly be doing my own thing soon, got the bug lol and I still have a few G's from this bag so its all good :smile:

From what I read on here the verm should be moist but the verm in that bag allways seemed to have to much water in, so it being too wet in there is what made it go slimey maybe?
