fucked up looking shrooms
    #2928196 - 07/26/04 11:59 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I have two casings going weird. Colonized fine, verm/peat/crushed oyster shell/lime, 1/2" on bottom, 1" substrate, 1" casing (i know a little thick but it worked fine)

problem... its fruiting now but the mushrooms look weird... i can get a pic if you need it. They only grow about an inch or so and are about as thin as yarn. I'm guessing its a humidity or CO2 considering im only using pearlite.

Anybody know whats up? I gotta fix this asap.

Lack of available moisure in the casing. dunk it and you'll get a huge second flush.

that came across my mind as well, but i really didn't think that was the case. will do. do you think i would be able to just pick the shrooms growing/pins forming and dunk it, or would you recommend waiting until the first flush is finished fully?

Also, this could completely be a too much Co2 problem too. Make sure you get a good air circulation in there so the Co2 doesn't build up.

These are some PF cakes I did a long time ago...not enough air exchange = too much Co2 = fucked up mushrooms.

Pick the largest ones off,all the smaller pins will be fine as long as you dunk for less than 24 hours.
I always found that half that time is plenty.

Because you used such a thick casing layer the myc had to use up more moisture to colonise the casing layer leaving little for fruits.
Think this way....a wet 200 gram flush needs 180ml of water. shrooms being 90% water as you know. Casings need plenty of available moisture. Do a search for "starter" and "rez-effect"

interesting, i didn't even think of the casing layer/mycellium issue.  I'll do that asap. I fan plenty so i doubt its a co2 problem, but you never know.

thanks a shit load you two, shrooms for both :thumbup:
