F A T, I say FAT ASSES!
    #1130750 - 12/11/02 12:54 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Got some cakes in a chamber. One is far ahead to the others and had two FAT asses growing off it. They are each about 2 inches in total length. For about 2/3 of the stem, they are over an inch thick each, the last 1/3 leading to the cap is almost normal looking in thickness. Many of the pins and primordia starting on the other cakes look pretty fat to me as well.

I wish I could take a pic for you guys.

I've heard contradictory theories on fat asses. I'm using a fairly small and deep Styrofoam cooler with perlite humidification. I have no humidity gauge yet (I'm literally broke) but can see no condensation on the cooler or plastic lid.

I'm guessing air exchange is the problem? I'm going to elevate the cakes and try to fan a couple extra times a day.

Thoughts?

That sounds like there okay, Its nice for them to have a fat meaty stalk, and even fat asses are alright.
But it the head looks normal, like you say, when the the veil breaks it will be much nicer looking.
BTW, What strain?

Are the cakes directly on the perlite (known to water-log)? Also, how long have they been in the terrarium since you've birthed them?

These are beyond "nice meaty stalks." I wish I could take a pic.

They are as described and the veils are breaking now.

The cakes are on lids on top of the perlite. They've been in for about a week and a half.

I know what your talking about, It is usually do to overhydration of the cake, not really much to worry about, if your gonna eat them anyway, (IMO) they tend to weigh a little more once dry.
Just cut them into 4 quarters down the middle.
What was your means of hydration?
Did you dunk?

Perlite for humidity, no dunking.

BTW, these suckers were growing together forming a BIG mass, lots of thick mycelia coating them.

The veils began to split on the fat asses.  :grin:  So I picked that whole mass, along with some pretty sizeable aborts, and ate 'em!  I also made tea with that cake and drank most of it. (This has just been a short grow project, for I knew I'd be leaving for holiday break)

The fat asses and aborts were 50 minutes ago.  The tea was 20.  I DO beleive I feel it!  My first little trip on somethin I grew.  :grin:

It's kind of odd, for I felt tingling in my feet BEFORE that familiar tingling in my torso...
