are the cakes sitting above perlite? ive heard that perlite reflects light so the mushrooms may see light coming from the perlite, thinking that is the way to grow. there were a couple threadsthat dealt with this same topic, you could probably find them using the search.

they are on the jar lids on a screen, over perlite. I give them about 3 1/2 hours of light a day

it could be the perlite, but there are many other factors that could easily cause them to be facing down. sorry but i do not remember any of these. im pretty sure that nothing bad can happen from this, and a lot of people's cakes have mushrooms growing downwards. IMO you should be fine but maybe somebody is going to prove me wrong.

your question can't be answered with any certainty because you didn't give any information that would help someone pinpoint the reason. that is not an excuse to break two rules.

things to include, humidification [we know to be perlite], average RH, temperatures, air exchange, etc.

I'd say that it is because of the vermiculite layer.  As Magash's pictures of the dunk and roll show us, pins form more on cakes that have a casing layer, even if very thin.  The likelihood of a pin forming on mycelia that is covered with some form of casing layer are higher than on bare mycelia.  That is why your cake is producing more pins there. Try a dunk and roll next time.  When the search feature works again, I'll get that link for ya.

Good luck on the p1ns :smile:

because that is where the conditions are right. try misting your cakes directly with with a sprayer, perlite generally doesnt put off enough moisture.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Whatever you have the cakes sitting on is holding moisture. Some people sit their cakes on a layer of wet verm and notice more shrooms growing from the bottom. I like to do the same thing but put the moist layer all over the cake.

This generally happens to me too, and I generally believe it is because the cakes in the fruiting chamber are sitting on a paper towel that just happens to be wet, a simple flipping of the cakes usually does the trick, imho. Not a problem at all.

dude, they are shrooms, they will grow wherever they want to.  If you have something against that, then pick the ones that are growing on the bottom, and touch the bottom up wiht your hands... that will for sure stop any more from growin on that area.  :smile:

it maybe because you only have a vermiculite bed for them to sit in, try roilling the whole damn cake in vermiculite, and see what happens.
