Need some help (pics)
    #11368097 - 11/02/09 12:15 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)






I got this boy on MY cake since last week (its been 6 days). He started growing really big, then stopped for some reason. Even if the cap is not black, he decided not to keep on growing. I ve got about 10-15 smaller pins on the same cake but they seem to be just as slow-growing as the big one. Now,this is what I've done so far:

- Pretty fast colonization then waited a full week
- Dunked 'n rolled
- Put some wet verm on top
- Shotgun Terrarium (3 inches perlite)
- Fanning and misting 3-4 times a day
- Temps 76-72 (day) 72-69 (night)
- Humidity: 94% - 96%

In the 2nd picture you can see another cake that is dangerously going the same way: 20-25 SLOW-growing pins. No black caps though. I am sure they cant be dry but they could be waterlogged. Any help appreciated.

sometimes fruits grow slow. in my opinion they are probably a lil bit more potent when that is the case.

Some strains are slower fruiters. What strain you growing?

EQ. I don't think it's a strain related issue though...

So you are saying it's just a slow flush... Any other tips? Anyone?

How are you measuring humidity?  Maybe its off?
FAE and Humidity often seem to be the culprits, so that's where I'd start.

I've got a digital hygrometer. I know it's crap, but I payed it 25 euros and I can't afford a second hygrometer right now. Anyway with 3 inches of perlite humidity should be ok. But your advice makes sense. I will look into rh and fae. thx
