Pinheads form, but fail to grow (PICS)
    #1822894 - 08/17/03 03:46 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)


I am having trouble with growth after the pinhead forms. The first picture is day 5 after formation. The second picture is 2 weeks into it. When it is cut open the inside is very brown. Thanks for any help.

If it's brown inside, it sounds like it's begun to rot... it's almost as if you're getting thousands of aborts :sad: , although IME they are the most potent :grin:

try fanning a lot. and give it water. when my mushrooms abort, it's usually cause they're running out of water supply, and need rehydration. water is 90% of the mushrooms right? the pinsset is nice, too :laugh:

Yes, fanning is your friend. notice how the pins have mycelium growing up them? Looks like your humidity is a bit on the high side, bring it down. Also, make sure the casing isn't too wet, this will cause aborts and intro contams.

how many hours of light do you have on them, constant light would be a reason for your little growth. try one hour of light with 23 dark that should do it

12 on -- 12 off, but I think my roommate goes in there at night and turns on the light. will this harm them?

Open your terrarium and fan over the casing using a large peice of cardboard or similar to disperse C02 buildup and replenish oxygen

I exchange air 3 times a hour. Will this do the same as fanning?

More like 3-5...but that depends on the size of your terrarium and how many mushrooms are growing. But for one casing in a decent size terrarium 3-5 times a day will do just fine.

1- 3 times an hour is optimal according to stamets. (the mushrooms cultivator)

Right...if you're growing in a warehouse with hundreds of pounds of mushrooms consuming oxygen. But the few mushrooms that are growing in a r-made bin just don't use that much oxygen.

Look at the picture on 198...
