Do these look right? (pic)
    #2740759 - 05/28/04 10:21 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)


I'm making my first attempt at growing mushrooms. I'm growing the B+ strain following PF tek. After birthing, I dunked all the cakes for 12 hours over night in the fridge, and then cased top and bottom with damp verm. I have two questions:

1. out of 5 cakes, one is doing very well (see next question), one has two half inch shrooms which are growing OK, but the other three aren't doing much. They have promising looking bumpy cotton wool looking growth, some of which has grown onto the verm. But they seem to have stalled. They were birthed about 20 days ago. Should I be worried?

2. the best cake has many shrooms, and they are getting bigger by the day - it's very exciting.... :laugh:

One of the shrooms has two stems growing into one cap (you can't see it in the pic, but it's the shroom just under the left most shroom). My concern is the colour of the stems, which have brown streaks running down them. These marks are also on the two smaller shrooms on another cake. Is this normal for B+? I've looked in the picture gallerys and the shrooms there seem to have white stems.

I had some blue/grey marks on some of the cakes while they were in the jars, but after checking on the Contam forum, these turned out to be bruising. All the cakes are now white in colour, with no contamination signs.

I beleive my terranium has high enough humidity (I'm using perlite, walls are dripping etc.), but my ambient temperature is a bit low. It varies from 19 to 21 deg.c. (67 to 70 deg.F.) - could this be the cause?

Any comments would be welcome.

Everything looks fine to me. Sometimes it does take quite a while to get them to pin. Your humidity sounds fine, but you want to try and keep your temp between 74-78f. Make sure they're getting good air exchange as well.
