First flush = 7 gram wet? help
    #1377749 - 03/15/03 08:57 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Today I picked the first flush off my 3 cakes... it was one shroom weighing 7.2 grams wet. Why such a paltry first flush? Cakes are pf tek 1/2 pint, BRF, cold dunked/shocked and in a rubbermaid with perlite on bottom.

Now there are 2 pins about an inch long but extremely skinny with huge amts of mycelium around their base. I don't have a hygrometer but it's gotta be good humidity in there, possible too much? Temps are 70-75F.

Any suggestions?

Keep trying......

Most get pathetic flushes their first go around. It's in learning what the shrooms need in the environment that you are dealing in that is the trick...

You don't tell enough about your conditions to get a good response about humidity......

I had three cakes start off poorly. Then .......wow........they pinned like crazy!

Keep humidity up to 100%! That is what they need. The myc. on the stems is fine.

Cool thanks guys
should I dunk the cake for round 2 or let it be?
There are find drops of water on the walls and I'm sure it's nearly 100% in there.

I dunked my cakes before the first flush. If you did that then I would not worry about it. If not, you might consider it.

I use a little h2o2 in the water.
