Could be lack of water in which case id suggest misting between flushes, also tell her to put em in the fridge overnight to cold shock. Never had this prob myself but that should do it

not speaking as an authority here, but i've heard of cakes drying out after a few flushes. i've heard by dunking your cakes you can get more flushes out of them. so have you ever considered dunking your cakes? if its something you'd wanna try the procedure is something like this: put the cake in your 1/2 pint jars and fill them with cold water. refrigerate overnight and then drain the water and incubate. I suppose you could probable case them after dunking and then reincubate and try fruiting again.

i would definitely expect more flushes than just one, so i would tentatively say try dunking your cakes if you're sure she's doing everything else right.

Bad strain for a beginner first off.
There is no SUPER strain of KS...

Until you have a little more under your belt...
I would go with EQ, Aussies, B+ ,Creeper or the excellent Pamana strain.

Just my 2 cents...

My friend had the same problem on their first grow. I believe it has to do with the water loss from the first flush. Also, incubation should not be necessary between flushes... it is not natural. My guess is that heavier mishting should be applied during the days that the first flush mushrooms are getting big to make up for them sucking the water out of everything.


Someone with good casing results needs to help us out here with how to get a good 2nd flush.

you need to dunk those casings,a 175g first flush means that over 150ml of water has been lost from the casing.
unless you replace that water then following flushes will be poor.

Also - I don't think you need to pick off all of the PINS after the first flush - I think that's essentially the second flush waiting to happen. (?)

Thanks ralph, that is the first time that I have seen specific names of shrooms that would be best for the first time grower in canada where it is at least quasi legal .
