First Grow, First Post - A Few Questions
    #25420526 - 08/29/18 01:48 AM (2 years, 8 months ago)

Honestly, I just want to know what everyone thinks? I'm growing the Cube Albino A++.
Are the harvested and partially dried shrooms turning blue normal? The caps have also turned black. Is Albino A growing this long and skinny normal? I have a few other mushrooms that are growing and they are much shorter and fatter than the mushrooms in Picture 3. Picture 2 and 3 are progress pic of the same cake after about 12 hours. I'm growing with vermiculite and BRF cakes, colonized in a mason jar. The cakes are fruiting in a modified TEK with Perlite as a base. Misted and fanned twice a day. If anyone has any suggestions or answers I would very much appreciate it.

Don't mist the fruits directly, try to avoid getting them wet as much as possible. Up your fresh air exchange, the fuzzy bases are telling on you. You don't always have to mist when fanning, evaporation of the moisture off the mycelium is a key pinning trigger. Mist as needed. Your perlite, if properly hydrated, should be maintaining your humidity for you so no worries about that. But yeah I'd say fruits look wet and needing more air. They'll stand more at attention, oriented toward your light source, when not heavily saturated. You can also ruin the potential of flushes that way as the persistent water can cause aborts of the recurring primordial formation (your sequential flushes).

This is whats causing your bruising on your fruits.

>>Up your fresh air exchange, the fuzzy bases are telling on you.
Mycelium growing up the base of your shrooms is a telltale sign of not enough fresh air exchange!

>>evaporation of the moisture off the mycelium is a key pinning trigger.
basically the evaporation of water is what tells the mycelium that its time for some fruiting bodies (mushrooms)




hope that I added something to what Noisecontrol said!

In 1965, Leary commented that he "learned more about his brain and its possibilities and more about psychology in the five hours after taking these mushrooms than he had in the preceding fifteen years of studying and doing research in psychology."

I love how long these mushrooms are while still being nice and thick and healthy looking. What size container is that you have them in and are they 1/2 pint cakes? Also did you put any holes in the container or you just cracking the lid/taking it off/putting it on upside down? Fanning and misting?

Makes me want to get some Albino A++ prints and make some syringes. I'll be making an unmodified monotub soon i think. Not sure what size yet. Anywhere from a 25qt to 60qt container.

Keep posting more pictures! :laugh:
