a dumb but baffling question (for me at least)
    #1589537 - 05/29/03 06:27 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hi all, my pet rock has been reading and learning for months from this site, he thanks you all for all the great info provided here, but rocky finally decided to give it a go.
Here's the details, then the question
Rocky decided to give the PF tech a go since it was reccomended by many for newbies, he is using 1/2 pt. jars with brown rice and vermiculite.  Half of the batch is Golden teacher and the other half is Equadorian.  Now, rocky got thru everything with quite some ease and luck and is now fruiting the cakes, after a good dunk, in his terranium.  He has harvested one flush already but after looking at many posts and pictures something doesn't seem right. Many of the pictures show nice clumps of 6 or more shrooms growing from the cakes and many reports of 3-6 g of dried shrooms per cake.  Rockys cakes pin all over and little mushrooms start to grow to 1/4" all over but usually only 2 or 3 keep growing too full size. this is the case with both strains.  yes, rocky is happy to have shrooms, but from the first flush of 3 cakes rocky only harvested 6 dry grams :confused:.  Rocky is quite confused, as well he should be, rocks don't have brains, but he appreciates all help that comes his way.

Thanks all!!

Yes, cakes can get up to 8 dry grams per cake, but that is after multiple flushes. You should be getting more then 3 shrooms though, maybe someone else can help you with that.

Thanks for the quick reply,
rocky has the cakes double-ended cased, and always keeps the casing moist, next time he will try rolling in vermiculite, but that doesn't seem to be the problem since many of the tecs don't even call for the double end casing. hmmm

Thanks!

Seems like your cakes are a little dry. How long did you dunk?

Also this helps for me: Harvest only the shrooms that veils tear. Leave the closed-caps to mature further and harvest them only as they're veils tear. This way you can assure yourself that each mushroom has grown to it's fullest potential before harvesting.

oh yeah, and of the three shrooms rocky usually gets per flush there is usually one very large one, approx 6-7 inches tall then the other two are usually 4 inches tall. hmm, any suggestions?

Thanks again!!

rocky dunks 24 hours and only picks mature mushrooms, so harvest usually lasts a day or two so he can get them as big as possible.

Thanks!

another thing to look into is the variety....if they are puerto rican you will get lots of pins that remain small for some time...they take a while to mature if they ever decide to....

Yeah, i have this kid i kind of sort of know... and he grows shrooms too rocky. My guess is that the huge mushroom is sucking all the nutrients out of the cake maybe... if its a beefy ass equadorian 7" mushroom it could be sucking juice from the others. I think this is feasible anyways even though it is just my conjecture and not based in fact enough to qualify as scientific advice, just logic. What happens after you pick the big mushroom? Do the little guys start to grow, or just abort?

^^ditto, sometimes pf cakes just dont have the nutes to keep up with the amount of pins formed-just wait till you move on to dung...well casing at least.
