Growing well, although...
    #1324639 - 02/21/03 12:21 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

A few aborts. Ok. Fan, fan, fan. Point taken in the last thread. My next question is why is it that only my shrooms are growing around the side of the growkit. I have a feeling that high humidity is the problem. Ok I'll try and fan see how it goes. Although faning air in from the outside seems to be a good way of increasing the likely hood of contaminates to me.

Any thoughts?

My dog has never had a problem with contam after it was time to start fanning.
It is usually strong enough by then to fight it off.

Pins growing from the side are a sign of low humidity.

maybe they're only growing on the sides because thats where the light is hitting them.

True. I just read a post about painting the inside of your fruiting chamber/terrarium black, this way you can help control where the light comes from and force the mushrooms to grow upward.

Paint the OUTside. Or wrap. You don't want the mycellium touching the paint. Even if its exterior paint. Or better yet marine enamel

Oftern on flat cakes i get a flush from the side followed by a flush from the top then another from the side.Do you still have the cake in a plastic tray? if so get it out and sit it on a sideless tray so the side pins have more room to grow else you might get this happening
