Are my teks stalled ?
    #1189661 - 01/04/03 09:34 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

hmm... i have been using this awesome site for most of my reserch and am probably just being impatient but I am also a bit nervous abot my progress. I started out with 8 1/2 pt cakes that colonized perfectly. I made two casings 50/50 with 4 and 3 cakes each and now have mycelium poking through the top very evenly. I put the casings loosely covered with saran wrap into the growing champer i made with wet perlite on the bottom and a clear top for light to get through I'm scared that i might get overlay. I also put one cake in a large gallon size glass jar with perlite on the bottom. It has been over a week and i see no signs of pins the RH in the jar is well over 95%. Am i on the right track ? The species is eq. My main concern is with the casings. I want them to fruit and not die. Please help. This is also my first post here so hi and its nice to meet everyone

Get the Goddamned plastic wrap off of them, and lower the RH, casings require a lower Rh to grow.

well, you should mention if you are fanning or not, if you are giving light or not and how much of each.

what is the temp they are in...

these all can effect the time it takes and even if they pin


btw: welcome aboard

1 week is not long enough for overlay, and 1 week is really not long enough to worry, if its been 7 days, i would give it 3-4 more....

yeah man, take the plastic wrap off & try not to let the Rh to get quite that high (i think you need about 80%-85% for casings, more for cakes) dont worry too much about overlay, I get the feeling (from what people have said on here) that it doesn't happen that readily with Psilocybe Cubensis

good luck!
