How can I get multiple flushes?
    #2443937 - 03/17/04 05:35 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Recently I constructed a greenhouse, and its working wonders.

However, I can only pull off one decent flush per casings...the second flush consists of like THREE mushrooms only, on average.

Im wondering , what can be done to inhibit better flushes.

Greenhouse is humidified by humidifier, maintains 90-100% humidity at all times.

I only fan , or exchange air about once every 3 days, but there is a small opening at the bottom.

My possible conclusions:

- Not enough CO2 Exchange
- Casings are becoing too acidity, I should add oyster shells or lime to balance it out.


The casings are a desired moisture themself, so that isnt the problem. I mist after a flush, pretty well, and add a VERY THIN layer to help re-moisten the casing.


Any advice

Contamination aside.

You got a first flush, and still get some on the second flush. The problem can only be lack of available nutrition(substrate) or lack of water content within the substrate/casing.

My bet is on the substrate composition. Straw? Sometimes the latter flushes only produce a few mushrooms, on any substrate, but the weight of those mushrooms is only slightly less then the weight of the entire first flush. IE they are large fruits. If this is not the case you need to alter your substrate, or grow a sufficient amount of trays to get what you want.

Popcorn.

You are probably right! Good thinking!

I only use 1.5 Pints of popcorn per casing.

My first flushes are always 3/4 an O dried, give or take a little. Then like 1/8 dried or so on the second flush, and maybe one or two shrooms after that.
