what will i do with this?!!
    #1161035 - 12/21/02 09:33 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

hello guys! i have a problem. i have 6 cakes pinning in a terrarium which i fan 5x-6x daily and mist the walls 4 times daily. when i mist the walls some water drops fall on the tops of the cakes! yesterday i misted and then went out for a drink. when i came back home i saw all the top of the cakes having greenish dots. anyway,now, 12 hours later the greenish dots havent spread so i don't think it is contam. Also the smell is shroomy!
the previews time i tossed my cakes for this reason  :crazy:

has anyone else xperienced this? also 2-3 pins have a greenish dot on them. but i am 99% sure that it's from the water drops

Try using perlite instead of misting, then you wouldn't be dripping on your cakes.

Are they green, or more of a green/blue? The only thing I can think of is to keep your eye on it.

Stop misting entirely and see if the condensation on the sides of your terrarium stays, if it does, you don't need to mist at all. If you see it getting a little dry, give it a quick squirt.

You could install a drip shield. A piece of plastic or saran wrap or something to divert the water droplets to the side of the terrarium.

Look up the Magic Mushroom Grower's Guide (MMGG) to see a diagram of this.

If you have perlite, there is really no need to be misting.

Alright.... now basic economics might be able to help you. A lot of people here seem interested in spending as little money as possible to cultivate. That's a noble cause! Being frugal would make all of your mother's proud.... But, I doubt you are willing to risk your shrooms for your mother's pride.

Having said that: Go and buy a fish tank bubbler. I installed a bubbler ($15.00US) and an air stone ($1.00US) in a resevoir of water and it rose my humidity in a dry chamber from 31% to 91%...... Results are achieved. You've spent only a little money and you can avoid water droplets.

A drip shield works if you only have a spray bottle, but why not just spend less than $20.00 and save the effort. Really?

I totally concur with gee_bone. My friend did the same thing (even made a post about it!) and it did wonders to his growing chamber!!!! I SWEAR!!!

That depends on where you live. It's usually very dry here in the desert. I grow with casings and pearlite still isn't enough during pre-pinning. I'd imagine if i was doing cakes i'd need even more humidity.

i dont know how large of a bubbler system for humidity these guys are using, but here's what ive seen, the pickle jars, the bubbler, fish tank heater all in one combo, humidity uncontrolled until pinning, and then regulated for fruiting.
