What am I doing wrong
    #1980575 - 10/05/03 03:53 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I am using a coleman cooler for my terrium and am not gettig any good resaults, I also have a onic humidifier for i thought I would have to fan using it. I work long days and can not be there to fan often. My cake are BRF. I am getting plenty of small what I am thinking are aborts but no decent size. I am unning my humidifier for an hr every 2 hrs. No guru here but from what i am reading and what I think I am understanding I am not fanning enough. Would appriciate any and all advice i can get. My cakes dont seem to make a second flush before they seem to be used up. I havent tried soaking them again to see if that works.

DUNK THEM, IT HELPS A LOT BETWEEN FLISHES. YOUR CAKES SEEM FINE. LOOK INTO MAKING THE POOR MAN'S POD. IT IS BASICALLY A SELF-AUTOMATED TERRARIUM. THOSE ARENT ABHORTS. ABHORTS HAVE BLACK HEADS. GOOD LUCK. KEEP HUMIDITY UP, TEMPS AROUND 75 - 80 F AND YOURE IN BIZ.

that pic took me back. ahh the mmgg (condenser bottles, dripshields etc) - this was my first ever grow:

you don't need any of that stuff, btw, but it is fun to set up.

anyway, that all looks okay to me, maybe they're just a small strain. whatcha got?
you have plenty humidity, and an hour every two, plenty air exchange as well.
temps?
time taken to colonise cakes?
dunking will probably help.

Yea I agree with Shirley you dont need any of that. A reason why your shrooms are not large is maybe they are not getting enough nutrition. Mycelia needs a surplus of nutrients to form shrooms and it looks like your surplus is not very large. However it could be the humidity. Small mushrooms form when there is inadequate supply of water in the air. You have several bottles and a drip shield hooked to your humidifier. That takes away too much of the humidity. Take away the drip shield and one of the bottles. You dont have to worry about water condensing on mycelia because you are using cakes. Water runs off vertical slopes. Or you could case with vermiculite and add gypsum. That would take care of both problems. Also an hour of humidification every two hours provides enough O2 ciculation because the air in the tub is displaced by humid air coming in from the humidifier.

Ditch the humidifier and just put wet perlite on the bottom of your cooler. When you're home, just fan every 2 hours. If you get up to take a piss in the middle of the night, fan it again.

And yeah, the dunk and roll method is kick ass!

I have a problem with frequent urination so I get to fan, on average, about 3 times in the middle of the night. What a fun life, huh? I've never had a full night's sleep without waking up to pee....ever.
