Stalled Fruiting Growth?
    #1813117 - 08/14/03 12:35 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I have about 24 BRF cakes fully colonized with either B+ or Huatla strains of psilocybe cubensis. I have them in a humidity chamber where RH is always above 90% but not so much as to form moisture beads on cakes. Temp is usualy 75-80. Light is being provided by two 15 Watt flouros. I had some pinning innitiate, and some moderate slow growth. The fruits were a little elongated and skinny for what I would normally expect. Then the fruits that were growing shriveled up and shrunk some. I have seen no new growth in the last two days. Is it simply a temperature issue? I've heard that temps should be 70-75 degrees, is this accurate? Should I have more light for 24 cakes, or is the current light I have now sufficient? Thanks for the advice.

Update:
I switched to 12/12 light cycle. Also, the cakes that had fruits/pins growing on them and then stopped are all kinda starting to bruise blue. I know this can happen but I haven't handled them very much. Only the pinning/fruiting cakes are bruising though. Any advice?

24 cakes in the same container? the bigger the container the more effort it will take to maintain proper temps and/or humidity. Everything sounds right though, light should be 12/12 at this stage, watch your humidity and remember to fan daily.

how long do you have the lights on for? they make your shrooms grow all short, slow and stumpy if you leave them on. try cycling the cycle like 8 hours light a day

Sounds to me like your cakes are too dry... did you dunk them?

I did not dunk the cakes prior to fruiting, but I think they were still fairly moist considering how much water I saw on them when I birthed them. I have been leaving the light on 24 hours though, so it sounds like I should definitely change that. I am using ultrasonic humidifier for humidity, it was difficult getting it set up right but I finally got the humidity perfect, so I don't think lack of air exchange is the problem. Even with the humidifier putting constant fresh air into the chambers, I still fan once or twice a day. I'll switch the lights though and see if that helps. Any other advice. Thanks.

My pit bulls have the same thing with their cambo casings, they switched to a cool mist humidifier, but that still hasn't help them to stop stalling.  The Aussies in the same chamber are doing fine, what else could it be? :smirk:

UPDATE:
It's been over a week and the cakes are just sitting there. There are some pins and four of the twenty-four cakes have produced some real shrooms, but aside from those, there is no growth. How do I get these suckers to fruit like I see some people getting them to? Humidity is good, mayber slightly on the high side, but just barely. I'm using an ultrasonic humidifier for humidity. Temp is hardly ever over 80 or under 70, usually 74-76. I'm running about 60 watts of flouro on 12/12 cycle. The only thing is I let a friend look after them for a while since I left town. He hasn't been fanning them out very much. Could this be the problem?? I got him to start fanning them again. Any advice? Thanks

the cakes could be bruising because of water dropplets hitting them. if water dropplets arent a problem then i havent got a clue. i'll keep you posted if you do the same for me. hopefully they'll just explode with crazy style mushrooms :thumbup: :eyemouth: good luck
