Funky Pin **PICS**

ok so my cakes are finally pinning on my first grow :smile:

i have 3 pins. 2 look healthy, growing up at an angle, and then one on the opposite side of the cake has a thin base, and this is probably the reason its resting against the tin foil. whats up? first pic of 2 healthys, 2nd pic of the lazy shroom.

will he be ok? tomorrow he will be on the perlite. should i scoop out the perlite from under him so he is just sitting in the air, or should i just go get a strip of tinfoil to put under him? his base isnt attached to much, i doubt the base will grow any bigger. 2 nights ago it was like a half inch long, and the whole half inch was the same width as the base is now...

it will grow up to be a healthy full grown shroom. its not lazy in growth it just doesn't like standing up, his feet hurt. with cakes this happens alot, nothing to worry about. you will get these every time you grow(cakes). the smaller base never seams to inhibit the uptake of water so it will grow just as fast as any other shroom.

my foaf had similar problems...
he figured it was from the white perilite reflecting light and confusing the poor mushies phototropic tendancies...geolite might stop it...
but he said the mushie grew fine, it just looked a little warped from the perilite it had touched, and he picked it before the cap opened...

put foil over the perlite so the mushroom will grow on that and not the perlite

i just checked on it again, 8 hours after that pic was taken, and it has gotten longer, but the base is still tiny. so will it end up being a longass shroom with that tiny base? it looks like it could break off at any moment lol

dude, my friend's friend had the same thing happen.. the stipe was too weak to support the upward growth of the shroom, and it eventually grew down into the perlite (which was, imf'sf'sho, far too saturated with water) and got really slimey, but it was like 8 inches long or something.

i think hevvy psi has a picture of it somewhere..?  *cough*

seems like the whole perlite reflecting light and confusing the phototropic senses of the fungus played into that whole scenario.. like so-and-so who's name escapes me but who has already mentioned.. mentioned.  yeah.  that was confusing as hell.

btw, the shroom was very much so good.  it was huge, but it was quite potent.  my friend's friend said so :smile:
