Newb question
    #1569533 - 05/22/03 04:18 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Lets say that BRF cakes have been sitting in a terranium for about a week and a half and the only place that they are fruiting is on the bottom of the cakes and nowhere else. The fruitbodies that are growing are looking normal but there are only like 5 or 6 total on 3 cakes. There are no pins anywhere else on the cakes. The cakes get new air 2 times a day and light for a few hours. What is the problem and is there anything that can be done to cause the cakes to fruit correctly or should patience be sought?

Patience...mushrooms tend to fruit where ever they please, and sometimes not at all.

i am no cake grower, by any means, but the best cake successes i have seen involve the use of wet vermiculite on the top of the cake, as well as underneath. do a search for 'double-end casing'. :laugh:

I double end cased my cake and it turned out great. It's first flush was up top the second was on the bottom and it's third in the middle... Each flush had like 10+ fruits on it! At least your cake is fruiting, imagine how bummed you would be if there were no shroomies on it. So it sounds like you've done something right. Like Shirley said search "double end casing", it's somewhere in the pfk.

Thanks for your help. I'll look into double end casing, sounds like it might be a good thing to try.

Light gets to bottom of casing and shrooms pin there because of light stimulation.

VICTIMIZER>>>forget the double ended casing and dunk the cakes, then do as you like, but dunking will change the "bottom only" phenomenon. and double end case if you like, but dunking then casing how you like is by far the better recommendation.
