Re: Terrarium fuzzies....

Part I - My personal opinion, although i may be wrong, is that this situation has got to be very hard on these poor shroomies. It is common knowledge that organisms like a STABLE environment, now that is NOT to say they won't grow. BUT, they may not grow as big or be as potent. The constant change of temperature will confuse the shrooms. Also i'm worried about the boiling water that you add three times a day. That is just too much!!!!! Mushrooms like humid air, but too much humidity is NOT good!! I would recomend getting and electric blanket and wrapping it around the terrarium or under it and put it on very low for half of the day and just adding water when you need it. (Are you using perlite? If you are you only need a thing layer of water at the bottom. Stick your finger in the perlite and feel how much water is sitting, you should have no more than a quarter inch)

That is just my hypothesis on what will happpen, but please show us pictures and tell us results when you are done!

Part II - I think the environment may have to do with your situation with the abhorts. I know that stringier-looking mycelium is more prone to pinning but that should not stop yours from pinning anymore. Please give more information on how long its been since you birthed and how long since abhorts were plucked. What kind of shrooms are you growing? How much light are you giving them?

Even without knowing everything the most logcal answer is that your poor mushrooms can't take these extreme situations that its trying to grow in.

An Electric blanket...... Good idea... but I don't actually have one...or even the ability to immediately get one. I never would have thought of it though.

You arguement for stability makes sense. I picked the Abhorts about two weeks after Birthing, and placed them in the fridge for 4 days. The mycelium " fuzz" may be growing from too much steam humidity. Maybe I can come up with an alternate heat source. The thing is no one knows the terrarrium is thre... I cant just run a cord to it...

You know what.... They are getting almost NO light!!! that could be my pinning prob.....doh!!!

Hi There:-)

No worries about the temperature. Try to keep it AT LEAST at 60 degrees or above. The "optimal" growing temp for p. cubes is in the mid 80's range. Remember, mushrooms don't have exact conditions when they're growing in the wild:-) The temperature in the wild wild nature always fluxuates:-) Between 65 and 75 degrees...you may notice your mushrooms grow slower, but thats about all:-)

And the abhorts...they are a but more potent, but you still need ALOT of them to feel anything:-) Also remember, there is a different in dry weight and wet weight. Mushrooms are about 90% water. SO...if you picked them off of the cake and ate them, even if you had 5-10 abhorts...it probably wasn't that much. Most mushrooms weights go by the dry weight or when the mushrooms are dry;_)

Ya know...If I wasn't so wrapped up over the temp, I probably just coulda put in the boiling water.....let it cool... THEN put mu mushies back in. I bet the humidity would have ben enough for a couple of days...

Any ideas on making the "fuzzY" one pin..other than light??

Just dump some wet perlite in there. All problems solved. It's the easiest, cheapest way to humidify a terrerium efficiently. Forget about the temp. It will be fine unless the temp is a some extreme.

I'm with Krupa. Forget the boiling water deal. If I'm not mistaken, fruiting temperatures should be in the mid 70's while incubation temps should be around 85 degrees.

Go with perlite for humidity and chill with the temperature. Room temperature should be just fine.
