Too Small
    #2765149 - 06/05/04 02:38 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Why are my mushrooms so small? I'm growing Golden Teachers, using the pf tek, the temp is kept pretty steady at 75 Farenhiet, the humidity is at about 60 or so and my mushrooms are small, they grow fast, everything seems fine but they're only a couple inches n the veils start to open and they pretty much stay at that size...how long are you suppose to let them grow after the veils open fully and the cap is flat? aren't they done then? my mushrooms are short lil stubby things...I'm startin a batch out on millet...maybe that'll make a difference? anyone with some advice please help me out...

oh yeah, and I fan two to three times a day and they're kept in a glass 10 gallon aquarium...with lighting provided by whatever shines in the house, nothing too extreme

using the pf tek


humidity is at about 60

Too low humidity for cakes. The low humidity combined with low-yielding PF cakes = small mushies. Raise your humidity first off, then try casing the cakes or using grains. Better yet, spawn a bulk substrate such as straw or manure if you want good yields.

The PF Tek does the job, but you shouldn't expect to get monster flushes from it. It can and does produce well, but nothing like bulk.

To give is to live...
