slow growth
    #2165048 - 12/06/03 09:30 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hey shroom lovers

I've got a little problem. I have three cakes, grown on the brown rice and vermiculate. They are in the fruiting chamber now, with perllite on the bottom, the chamber is a clear plastic storage type container, I also fed a tube from a mumidifier into the box, which I run everyone and a while to keep air moving and increase humidity.

The problem is that they are pinning and fruiting slowly. They've been in the chamber for about a week ( I waited until the cakes stared to pin) each cake has a couple of shrooms growin, but even they grow slowly, the biggest one has been growing for about 5 days, but it's not nearly mature yet.

I checked the optimal conditions and the temp and humidity are fine...what could the problem be?

I f you need any more info, feel free to ask.

might be the strain, or its your mumidifier! If you notice the bottoms of the shrooms are covered in a wrapping of white bandages, then your mumidity is too high. Turn it down before you are forever cursed!

Seriously what you need is proper humidity, Co2/o2 ratio, and temp.

75F with over 90% RH is what your looking for, but it may be a slowly developing strian. Other than that I don't know what to say.
