Problems with stalled cakes
    #2046927 - 10/27/03 11:15 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, I have 7 cakes which will be 2 weeks tomorrow from first flush and I havnt seen a single pin 4 cakes were dunked there getting 4-5 hours of ligh a day is this enough? Could this be the reason they have not pinned yet? How much more of a chance will I have of getting pins if I change the lighting period to 12\12?

Thanks

Not light -- just keep them happy and they'll grow.

Should be at 75 deg F, >95% rH. Light won't matter that much.

Yes, but there only has to be *some* light; the amount and intensity aren't really that important.

Micro is that >95% rh mean less than 95 or at least?

Thanks

They are being kept in a aquarium heater type terranium, I really need more mushrooms because I forgot to take a print :frown:

One last question how long until I should just giveup on the cakes and throw them away (burying them)

Sorry for the double post.

Ok, I have no idea where this light is only needed for a few minutes a day stuff came from. This isn?t the way it happens in nature so this isn?t the way it should be in your chamber.
I don?t know maby people just don?t believe Stamets or what but I?m gonna go by him.





My flushes went up on cakes, logs, and grain casings by upping the light. I use to use 4 hrs a day and went to 14. I?m not going back.
