First attempt at growing with a growkit
    #2035300 - 10/23/03 07:14 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi

I attempted mushrooms hunting and was unsuccesful due to not having transport to get to the decent habitats so i bought a growkit, ive had it setup for about 24 hours now, its just a rectangular plastic box with the cake the mushrooms grow off in and ive got it in a bigger plastic fishtank, ive got about 1 - 2cm of boiled and cooled water in it and ive spraid the mushroom cake with boiled and cooled water, theres Myclieum growth around the sides of the mushroom cake and theres patches of it on the top, the humidity is quiet high ive got it by a raidiator and theres condensation around the sides of the fishtank that arent faceing the radiator and across the foil which i have as a lid for the fishtank, the foil has holes in it for airflow

Sorry i havent got pics but i dont have a webcam/digital cam but does this sound like an ok setup and how long should i expect to wait untill the pins start forming

thanks

>across the foil which i have as a lid for the container, the foil has holes in it for airflow

??

is it in the light (for fruiting) or in the dark (for colonising)?

its in the light out of direct sunlight

I have foil over the top of the container that contains the growkit, water etc

I've put holes in the foil so the container isnt completley sealed off

EDIT - im sure someone must know if this setup is ok and how long roughly myclieum takes to pin  :confused:
