what is going wrong?!?
    #1635914 - 06/15/03 10:58 PM (15 years, 8 days ago)

hello all,
a friend has been unsuccessfully attempting to cultivate for a while now. everything seems to be going fine up until the very end of the production. the cakes pin and start to grow mushrooms, but after about two or three days they always stop growing. i don't think he has gotten even one to fully form. what do you think is going wrong? he thinks that the humidity might be too high because the cakes generally begin to grow very fluffy mycelium. he uses the perlite method detailed in many teks. could this be the problem or do you think its something else? thanks a bunch for your input!

he is using 2 inches of perlite with between 1/2 to 1 inch water. he fans usually 3 to 4 times daily, but with no misting. the temp is always between 78-86 degrees. can you lessen the humidty by using less perlite?

Make sure there's enough water in the cakes for the shrooms to grow. Dunk the cakes if necessary.
