First time grower, first flush, how does it look? (pic)
    #2736577 - 05/27/04 01:54 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Im a little concered that my mushrooms are really droopy. Only one of them stands up, the rest are dragging in the perlite. Is this normal? Could low humidity cause droopy mushrooms?
How do they look?

Your input is appreciated!

they look good for a first grow. do you have a humidity gauge in their? if so what is it reading? as i recall i think you want 100% and as far as i can tell in the pic the walls are dripping wet. hope this helps

some nice looking shrooms in their. The only thing is you don't want so much humidity, as where water is constantly dripping on the cakes.... water dripping on the cakes is not good. Humididty does go over 100%, keep that in mind.

Also, I wouldn't let the shrooms lie on the perlite. I have never read anything on this, but I think this cannot be good. might cause rot etc.

i dont have a humidity gauge. i went to walmart and couldnt find one? does anyone know if wally world has them? maybe i just wasnt looking in the right place.

yes, the walls are dripping wet constantly so i guess there is pretty good humidity. Also, how often should one spray down the perlite with water?

unless your gonna spend around 200 bucks on a gauge, dont bother.

and again, too much humidity is bad man.

hmmm, does it look like i have too much humidity? the walls of my plastic container are constantly sweating. also, would too much humidity make for droopy mushrooms?

ohh and my input on the reason they are down near the perlit is cause the perlite is reflecting light they dont know which way is up normally they would have light only on top there for they grow twd the light. thats jus my input i could be wrong u look like your humidity is fine tho

too much humidity would make what looks like fuzz i guess u can say climb up your mushies and when they dry that fuzz will be real soft

thanks for all the input, i really appreciate it!
Some of the bases of my mushrooms look fuzzy, maybe too much humidity??  Maybe i'll fan them out a few times a day instead of once a day to get rid of some of that humidity.  Its not soo humid though that the water is dripping on the cakes, there is no condensation on the lid.

I used brown rice flour and vermiculite and the strain is Equadorian.

I cant wait to taste them :smile:

never said it was bad but its a sign of high humidity
also it seem to make the stem a lil more hollow where the fuzz is

thanks for all your help guys, this is a great forum!

Thanks again!

as far as the low pinset, he probably didn't initiate pinning (exposure to light) before 100% colonization. This resulted in only a sparing amount of pins, which turned into Large shrooms.

Usually you will either get alot of small shrooms, or a couple big ones.

you are right mycoguy i didnt. The next set of jars i do i will put them where they can get some light before they are fully colonized and hopefully this will fix it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
