what should i do? leave, crop, eat bin?
    #2607694 - 04/27/04 07:49 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i got a kit (allsalvia.co.uk) and so far i'm in this stage.
setup:

cake: a 18x11x6 cm cake from allsalvia
box: shown in pic, protected from water driping by using inclind cling film
heating: 50W with thermostat aquarium heater submerged in the water/perlite
5L perlite
Loads of water
Digital thermometer
no humidity gauge

Brief log:

3/4: kit posted
5/4, 16:45, 22.3C:kit recieved, put in the box, insulated with bubble wrap and covered with a towel to make it dark 22.3C
5/4, 23:45, 23.5C: increased heater temp setting
6/4, 05:00, 25.0C: aired it, very misty
6/4, 09:00, 23.5C: moved heater to the center set it to 29C
6/4, 20:45, 25.4C: placed cake in supports so it is not in the perlite/water
7/4, 04:15, 25.0C: raised heater temp setting to 30C
7/4, 12:45, 28.4C: set heater to 28.5C
8/4, 03:15, 26.7C: set heater to 29C
9/4, 13:00, 26.2C: Myceliul showing up
9-16.4: mycelium growing
13/4: allowed indirect light in the box
16/4, 13:00, 27.0C: saw what i think i twas a bit of green about the size of a match head or less, boiled a spoon for 5 mins and scooped it out.
Looks like it has a 3x3cm green patch on the underside of the cake in 1 corner
Also first pin made visible
from then on the mushrooms started to grow but not steadily.

What are those big white blobs?  I'm having a hard time figuring out what I'm looking at... :confused:

in my opinion they are mycelium. what is funny is that some shrooms look healthy and some decaying. and there are no shrroms in the middle. and how they grow varies

i really need some guidance before i loose it

cheers for replying

I would harvest and make sure to give them better air exchange for the next flush. What's your air exchange schedule?

well it varies
like it says in the faq i try to air them min 3 times a day to 2 times a hour max
but i was out and about a bit so they might have been about 18 hours without airing
do u think that think on the shrooms is mycelium? why are some bowing?
it doesnt look like anything bad
should i air them every half an hour?

sorry for the too many questions, but i feel i have to do something quick, and as i cant make any cakes right now, this cake is my only hope

Cheers

I would give it a day or a little less until the little ones start to open up, give them a little time to get a little bigger. You could harvest them now, though with no regrets.

Wow. There's some crazy shit going on in there. I'd definately cut back on humidity for one. Did you go crazy with lysol around the casing or anything? I don't know what would cause those large growths. And some are definately starting to rot. Pick any that have torn veils and any that are rotting now. After you've gotten all you can off the first flush I'd strip the casing completely, dunk if you like, recase, then try again maybe without the perlite.

now temp is 76.6F/24.8C (following the guidelines 74-78F)
In order to reduce moisture and increase the air circulaton should i lift the cover a bit? i guess i should have used a RH gauge.i will go get one tomorrow.
what is lysol? Should i keep the abortions and the growths? ofcourse any rotten will go. y should i not use perlite? i dont need it anyway..

Thanks for the advice
