First of all I'd like to say Hi to Everybody :smile:. Good to be here as a noobie.

Some time ago I started my first attempt. It's been almost three weeks since I mixed colonized grains with coco coir. Everything looks quite healthy I guess, but the surface is really weak. Is it maybe due to low humidity? Can I repair it somehow. I appreciate any hints and suggestions.








I nee knots in there, should get some pins soon.

So, shall I simply wait a bit more and expose it to fruiting conditions? Without additional rehydrating?

I would mist lightly and keep the fae the way it is.

Thanks :smile:.

I've just misted walls of monotub.

I will get it out from the dark tomorrow then... and see what happens :wink:

Best!

It would be beneficial if it were exposed to light 3+ weeks ago. Light is beneficial to mycelium and mushrooms in all stages of cult.

also mist the sub from about 2 ft above, misting the walls does nothing.

Ok. For the another grow then I will check this out. What would you suggest? Just keep it exposed to light but with low levels of O2 to prevent early fruiting? Or every few days - few hours of light?

Don't be quick to assume poor genetics. It's far more likely that it's less than perfect conditions causing the malformed caps and short stems. My first tubs were mostly like that too. Growing the same genetics later after I gained some experience looked so much better!

Some update.

Things turned out quite well as for a firstimer :smile:.
Although there are of course many things to improve - I'm fine with that. And to be honest the whole process is rewarding in itself. Treating it as a simple biology study, is fun as hell.

Uploading some photos of GT.
I've already picked up some growing from sides. The biggest one on top view photo has about 6,5cm(~2.5in). Most of them has already broken veils and are quite short. I've read it might be humidity/fae issue.
Also some funky curly edges (if its genetics indeed - I'll try another vendor next time).
Next step is to cut the biggest cap when it becomes more flat and try to capture a print -> syringe for further learning (maybe there is no point in that beside learning if genetics sucks :smile:).

Again, thanks for help.











MS  is a genetic crap shoot. A lot of those mushrooms are most likely smaller due to genetics. I'm more than sure the humidity was fine. Indeed, take a print of the one in the middle left!

Also, it's good to make your own syringes. A spore print can last you the rest of your life, without ever having to buy anything again haha. And it's a fun practice.

But, I highly would recommend training with agar? I'm going to assume you did ms>grain? Am I right?

That's exactly what I'm going to do. Taking print and learn how to make syringes.
I've started to read about agar already. Probably will give a try either, but the time will come for that :wink:.

And yes, you are correct. I've used a MS syringe > grain > mixed with coco coir after colonization (with quite a poor ratio) I didn't want to spent a lot of money for cheap grain I can do myself in the near future.

Thanks!
