cake problem I think....
    #1993410 - 10/09/03 03:11 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

One of the cakes sitting in the terrarium right now have only seem to be able to produce one pin. Its been about 3 days since I first saw the pin and nothing else has appeard. I give them 12 hours of light a day. Am I just being a bit paranoid or is something wrong like Humidity? Also Another cake seems to be Covering up in a thick mycelium I'm not exactly sure if is alright or if its cobweb. Ill post a pic when I can. If anybody can help me I would appreciate it. Peace.

You need high humidity, fresh air and stable temp (70's), the light is the least important part as long as there is some.

If you are misting and using h202 in your terrarium water it is less likely to be cobweb than myc. Keep it very damp and fan at least a few time a day & wait.

Yea thats what I was thinking. Whats a good way to raise humidity? Add more perlite? I have been misting about 1-2 a day so I guess a lil more wont hurt. And I fan about 3-4 times a day, is this enough?

about an 2 inches of perlite, of water, better still build a pod!

You are just misting the terrarium sides right, not the cakes direct?

Oh and, a picture is worth a thousand words.

This is my terrarium, its just a bin inside a bigger bin with a fish tank heater warming the water up.



I have done some more inspecting it turns out its not cobweb and i do need to add more perlite which i will be doing in the next 5 min.

I live in a basement so it does get kind of chily. Im not sure what the temp in the terrarium is I have nothing to use to figure it out. But from my guess im thinking maybe around 70-75.

ok, the temp is fine, but I think you might need a more blue light as there is no outside lightbeing a basement, are those xmas tress lights you are using? are they LED's or lamps? Shrooms need blue spectrum light to pin, blue LED lights, or a plain on florseceant will do a few few hours each day.

You know im not sure what kind of light they are. Yes there are x-mas lights. There the iceicle type of lights. I was told they would work fine. But if I had already gotten one pin by using these lights I would imagine they were fine for using.

I guess they are ok then, just give it time more humid, if is a bad contam you won't get healthy pins.
