strange growing
    #2595812 - 04/23/04 07:52 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Alright party people I have been very patient with my pftek and finally I am starting to get some guys growing.
But this has been a bizarre affair.
This is the 3rd time I have grown using pftek andt his time has been the longest ever.

I innoculated on feb 22 and up until this week only 2 shrooms have grown on 12 cakes. I know there not dehydrated nor is the RH to low, Temps have been less then 80 maybe less then 70
But now I finally have * growing on 4 different cakes
But whats weird is they are growing off the caps that the cakes are sitting on.

I have a perlite terrarium with wire mesh sitting above the perlite, and the cakes are resting on the the jar caps.
So when I put the cakes in the terraium the mycelium grew to cover the rubber seal around the inside of the cap now nearly all the shrooms to grow have been off that mycelium and not really off the cake itself.

they grow nicely and i know the mycelium is transporting the necessary nutrients but damn this has been odd.

what you are describing sounds to me like a micro-climate issue. the surrounding area has provided the most hospitable ideal fruiting conditions due to the idea humidity of the perlite...

bottom line is, you've got pf tek cakes working albeit weirdly. step up and try casing :laugh: its a whole new ball-game of fun

i'd love to see pic's of it
