Bought Mega You Grow Kit... GOT 5 Shrooms, Please advise!!
    #26120211 - 07/20/19 06:40 PM (1 year, 7 months ago)

I Bought this kit, and followed all the directions in the pamplet, I did grow some shrooms but so few that I might as well got none. I m trying to figure where I went wrong. Here is how I proceeded:

1. did all pasteurization of straw substrate, added colonized pellets, let grow for the two week period.

2. sterilized and cased the colonized substrate, kept temperature in range and allowed the appropriate (5 days) of darkness period before turning on the lights.

3. grew 5 shrooms... :frown:

4. put the whole damn thing in the fridge overnight to help wake up the tub of shit.

5. posted frustrated plea for help on here.


Any advice other than "dont buy kits online" would be greatly apprecited.. Thank you.

Jeez a grow kit made you deal with pasteurizing straw? That's pretty terrible. No need to put it in the fridge. No one can help you if you dont post pictures of your grow tho :mushroom2:

Have you noticed signs of contamination? If its not heavily contaminated maybe its just a variety the does poorly on the first flush... Rehydrate and hope for a big second flush?

Don’t buy kits. Once you get a few basic pieces of equipment growing becomes very cheep. This mono probably cost 6 bucks in materials and $1.25 in power. This tub is MS to boot.

OK here are some pics, I took just now, its basically just a sparely colonized casing layer, I took the lid off to take a photo, I have them at 25deg C and 90% humidity in a closet that I made with a 25 w light bulb hanging over top. I loosely place the lid to allow some airflow.

well there was a really small amount of what I think was mold on the plastic above the casing layer, where the plastic has folded down. But I wiped that off with alcohol and havent seen anymore since.

Mold isn’t good ever. Wiping it off is even worse. I suggest you don’t plan for too much from that and start reading some teks.
