Hopefully get to harvest soon. It’s my first time and I just want your opinion in case there’s something I’m not seeing or could do better

I think you should turn that container into a shotgun fruiting chamber

Well done OP, looks like a good first grow.

Enjoy.

Congratulations, and enjoy :smile:

Nice flush, I wasn't so lucky the first time.

But I wonder why your mushrooms grow from the bottom of the cake. Did they get light?

They need indirect sunlight or blue LED light or some people say flourescent light. I like this study: 'Effect of Color of Light Emitting Diode on Development of Fruit Body in Hypsizygus marmoreus'.
They showed blue LED light is the best.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23610542

Their conclusion should hold for cubensis as well.

I personally used a ~10W blue LED plant light. 1 hour a day was enough.

I was wondering the same, its funny to see all those shrooms coming from the bottom.

It looks pretty wet in there, what kind of FC are you using?

They all grew from there because that's where the best surface conditions were. I imagine a proper sgfc would help

Still looks really nice tho.

Your fruits and FC are soaked compared to mine. I wonder if mine need more moisture.

I have it sitting in a walk in closet not a lot of light can get in from the frosted window because of the angle. I ended up turning on the light inside the closet and covering it with a beanie hat. I’m going to need to modify the container to have bigger holes. Now they are a little larger than a dime. Thank you! I’m very proud that they’ve turned out so well. I’ll have to modify for the next time around.

I don't think your best potential results will come from a monotub full of perlite. You want holes beneath the perlite- a bunch of em. Small holes 2 inches apart across all six sides. And then fill the chamber full of cakes- a fuller chamber does better. If you wanna fruit cakes in a mono, you're best best would probably be to fill it completely with unbirthed jars and top-fruit them, or break them up and mix them into a bulk substrate. Mono's aren't designed to fruit birthed cakes. An sgfc is. A proper sgfc can give you good surface conditions across the entire surface of the cake

Yeah you managed the hard part! I don't think a regular light bulb gives enough light in to trigger pinning in the direction you want. I would invest in a LED plant light, if you want to keep it in the closet. Amazon has them for 30 bucks.

I think you might get away with the few holes if you fan them enough during the day for air exchange. I didn't have a shot gun fruiting chamber either for my PF tek cakes and I got three flushes out of them.
I used a fruiting chamber designed for monotub, because I wanted to switch to that grow method, it yields more, but also more complicated. And didn't want to waste a grow box.

Light is important. Use something around 6,500k on a 12:12 schedule.
