3rd attempt. did i fail again?
    #11283293 - 10/20/09 12:45 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

so this is my third attempt.  my first time i was able to produce mushrooms (very small ones due to no fae and too much moisture). and my second attempt i just fucked everything up. this time im trying a casing.

I broke up a half pint brf cake onto about an inch of sterilized coco coir.  after spreading the brf cake into the container i realized my container was too big :thumbdown:

so instead of keeping the broken cake to one side like i should have i spread it out and there were gaps between peices :thumbdown:

afterwards i put a layer of coco coir/vermiculite/calcium carbonate casing over top.  i later realized that you dont want to do this until after you incubate the brf on top of the coco coir for 5 days.

my incubation chamber is pretty good, it hovers between 75 and 85 but occasionally spikes at 90 (can this kill the mycelium?).

but anyways..

my question is,

do i have any chance of getting mushrooms out of this container?

i put it into the incubation chamber about 2 days ago so i guess ill find out soon, but i'd still like to know the opinion of all you pros on here.

well you should have just added more coir and increased your spawn ratio instead of spreading it out and 90+F is alright you dont want to go too much higher tho

make a checklist and keep it posted with your grow, step one gather materials : jar/pc/spores/sub/etc... step 2: sterilize.. blah blah blah

break it down to 1a 1b 1c for steps like mixing the sub or casing, make yourself a walkthrough guide... I used the pf tek videos pause and play while I was doing each step...

and I were you Id duplicate my first grow and fix the 2 simple issues

no you can get pins below 60.  when its colder you'll notice your shrooms take longer but are thicker more dense

no one said they were

mine are in a garage 55-80 and they are fine slower but fine and they are stronger when grown in the cold anyway.

You guys are right.  They are growing wider, and not out, they almost look like big circles, and the caps are growing almost as wide as the stem (only about an inch long).  HOwever, its supposed to warm back up to the upper 70s starting tomorrow so that will probably help them along.
