growth mainly on the bottom?
    #2063463 - 11/01/03 08:31 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

A friend is curious if the fact that most of the little guys pinned on the bottom means anything, this is on a cake BTW. And by bottom he means growing out of the vermiculite base on the bottom

sometimes they come from the bottom.



sometimes from the top.



sometimes they grow all over.



you'd have to ask the shrooms why.
as you can see D/E casing+plus a dunk roll and coldshock make no difference.
all i know is that if you inoculate it,they will come.

Fan dry first
Then use an airtight container with dessicant on bottom, then lay a screen over the dessicant and put the shrooms on the screen

They grow near the bottom normally. The humidity is much higher next to the perilite rather than on the top of the cake. Just more optimum fruiting conditions near the bottom.

ahh, so there is a good scientific explanation. So I guess I shouldn't worry about a high CO2 rate then since they are growing.

i read somewhere that perlite can reflect light, so the shrooms grow towards the bottom, where the light is being reflected.
