Toppling shrooms, too much oyster shell?
    #1757356 - 07/28/03 07:56 PM (20 years, 10 months ago)

    I did a 50/50 casing exactly as your supposed to but I might have ether gone a little heavy on the oyster shell or my mix might be a little too wet, I'm guessing the former. All my shrooms, four so far, are coming up and growing sideways w/ funky-ass oblong stems (none are evenly remotely round) and into bizarre monstrosities :devil:, one did start to look normal but mutated anyways. The problem is they get too big/tall (just wait) and barely have a chance to open their veil before toppling over under their own weight, the tub can't be moved at all or any decent size one will fall right fucking over. Don't get me wrong I love big shrooms but I also like ones that grow to full maturity better, and ones that look normal so I don't have to worry if their diseased or not. So I'm making this a dual pointer/question. Question: might it be the moisture content because I have noticed the tops of the caps feel slick, not slimy but like they're always wet. I have an air pump for each tub so I don't think it's a O2 problem. How do I get normal looking shrooms  :mushroom2:that won't fall over. Pointer: If it's not the moisture content, fist timers such as my self might want to go a bit lignt on the oyster shell for the 50/50 or whatever Tek.

Sounds to wet to my friend, from what little he knows about casings.

i've seen the same thing happen on a coir/verm casing over horse poo substrate, so i don't think it's the oyster shell .
the strain was pr, from a multi-spore inoculation, they had roots in the casing layer, but they didn't go down into the substrate .
some fruits grow normally, but there were several 25 gram monsters that looked like Jubba the Hut .
lol we should all have such problems .
:lol: :laugh: :lol:
