Why do they always stop growing?
    #2171505 - 12/11/03 09:16 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello,
Bob has been trying to cultivate for a few months now, but bob can't get any pins or primorida to form. When bob sees the mycelium coming through the casing, bob takes the tops off the tupperwares and trys to get them to pin. Bob has a hepa filter system and a "Grow-Lux" 15 watt light in a box thats about 20"x40". BOb runs the filter 24 hours and the light 10 hours and mist the casing every 3 or 4 hours, except at night. After a few days the the casing and sustrate ( By the way, I'm going by Paul Stamets "The Mushroom Cultivator" book) start pulling inward and then after that they do nothing. My friend told him to "cold shock" them at 60 degrees for 24 hours and if that didnt work, put them in a fridge for 24 hours. Bob has tried both and still nothing. Does bob need to put covers back over the tupperwares? Should he not run the filter all day?
If any one could help me it would be greatly appriciated!
-peace

by the tupperware statement i'm guessing your humidity level might be off...you can't hold in the humidity level needed for pins unless you raise that of your entire growing area if you don't hold in the humidity...well that's just what I think the problem might be, but i'm no expert

your humidity is probably fucked since you run the filter all the time, the casing shouldn't be pulling away from the sides like you say. you should put that filter on a timer or just fan instead.

Like they said....you need more humdidity....I had the same problems as you for 4 months until I finally decided to just make a humidifying chamber. Then I was gettin full flushes. I live in Florida too and the humidity is high so just know that shrooms are 90% water so you need it too me really humid. THe filters fukc with the humdity too (as mine did)
