what is wrong with my grow box??
    #11390087 - 11/05/09 12:45 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

hey..i have a cubensis mushroom growbox and i waited 4 weeks to see the first mushrooms.i think most of the water inside the box is vaporized in that period..now my mushrooms seems like dried.they grew 1 cm in 5 days.i guess this is because lack of water cuz i know that %90 of mushroom is water..so what should i do?can i add some water into the box?will it harm my growbox??please guys help me..

umm.. pick those.. dunk the sub and try again. It looks like you have too little sub to support the growth/retain moisture/too little humidity in the grow chamber to help.. they all side pinned where the moisture and humidity were up (in a micro climate between the sub and tray).. so it was a problem from the get go.

low moisture/humidity.. You need to explain your exact set up for better advice. I would eat them.

final answer is that there is not enuff moisture in the air.

mist and fan your box on a regular basis.

yes they are fine to eat and would have been amazing looking had there been enuff moisture in the air.


what type of fruiting chamber are you using?

actually i put the box in a room thats just it.i did not do anything special.there is a radiator in the room and the temperature is around 25-27 Celcius all the time..it was staying away from the window and i did not do anything to fan them

i did not do anything to moisturize them(i dont know how to do that).

the box was staying at my room my room takes sun light but not direct sunlight and at nights i turn on the lights to study etc. (i dont know if shrooms have a light chamber)




by the way can i do anything to save them now?Maybe by moisturizing and etc can they become normal???

no.. they are done.. pick them. You need to put them in a container of sorts, next time.. Search "MONO tub" or "Shotgun FC".. both are cheap and easy. Take the sub, and dunk it, again search "dunking sub" .. you can revive it with a new pin set and grow out some better ones, but those are done.

Open air could have worked a little better had you used a clean spray bottle to mist them with water.. in open air, it would of have to of been constantly, but would have still turned out better.

do what the others said and pick the mushrooms
submerge your substrate in water and put back in the tud

to make a humidity tent just put a plastic bag over the top
and poke some holes in the bag,mist the inside of
the bag a few times a day this will increase your
humidity as well as prevent the substrate from drying out

Yikes!  Those are frighteningly dried out.  They look like they have potential though, if you follow the advice everyone gave above, specifically the part about dunking and putting into a tub or putting a bag over top to give the mushies lots of humidity, you will definitely have a monster flush coming up.

dunking is putting water into the box right?i will do that for 13-14 hours..should i put it into a bag right after pouring the excess water?or should i wait for the first mushrooms to pup up??

also COVER the damn thing.

you need a fruiting CHAMBER.
that means the mushrooms should be enclosed in a box of sorts
not sitting out in the open air.

thats how you maintain humidity.

Then you poke holes in it to allow for FAE (fresh air exchange)

there are a ton of ways to make a fruiting chamber, i sugest you do a DUBTUB style since you already have a tray going.

but a shotgun FC will also work

generally.. the substrate is submerged in a much larger water tub.. a larger container. Sometimes you will need to find a way to hold it down, as it will float, a plate works if using something that a plate will fit in.. or get creative, but be clean.

You want to put a humidity tent or use a fruiting chamber right away.. do not wait for the pins.. and don't let humidity be your only concern.. fresh air is equally important. Which is why the suggestion was made to poke holes in the plastic. Also, fanning them is going to keep things right.. this doesn't mean to put an electric fan on them, but for that size pan, just fanning the air with your hand will do. If you are going to use a bag/humidity tent.. just lift it and fan. Generally, one would mist the air gently over the sub with a water spray bottle, then fan to get fresh air exchange, while helping the water vaporize into a fine mist humidity. You want to fan as often as possible, without losing humidity.. and that my friend is the thing we are always trying to perfect.
