Mycelium Question...
    #1449117 - 04/11/03 10:25 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

My grow kit currently has 6 patches of mycelium on it... In total I have 3 tiny pins coming through and one little monster. They only seem to be pinning from the mycelium, here's my question:

Will shrooms only grow from the mycelium? Or will some sprout through the vermiculite where no surface mycelium can be seen?
Also, I have dozens of pins under the surface of kit squeezed up against side of kit container,
how do I pull these up out of the soil?
With light?
How long should I 'light' them?

Thanks very much!
Nirvana

yes, mushrooms will grow where you don't see mycellium on the surface - the network is still formed under the casing layer.

as for the pins against the side...i don't know the safest way to go digging them out since you'll probably disturb the mycellial network. the way to avoid them forming at all is to put tinfoil or duct tape around the sides so no light will get to them

Even putting tape or foil around the casing won't stop light from getting to the sides if the container is clear. Clear plastic, glass, water, etc. allows light to "travel" through it. Myc don't need more than a fraction of a second of the right kind of light to form primordia. Your best bet, IMO, is to use a coffee can or something that is in no way transluscent. You could also completely wrap the container in foil, essentially making a non-transluscent container.

Thanks very much guys, that's put me at ease a bit E Tard. I have another kit coming in tomorrow and I've noted what you said johnson (and shirley) I will try wrapping many layers of foil around the sides very tightly!!
Thanks very much for your help and time.

Nirvana, after your next "kit grow" give it a shot on your own.  It's not too hard and i bet it's cheaper than your current methods :smile: Just a thought though, do what you like! Have fun and learn.

Haha don't worry Pillsbury, I will! Seeing my mushrooms come through on my kit was a VERY satisfying feeling! I will definately have fun growing and *consuming* the mushrooms! Thanks for the words of wisdom  :laugh:!

*I will not actually be consuming the mushrooms, I will simply throw them away once they have grown*  :wink:
