First-time grower lookin for advice on some VERY BASIC stuff
    #2931358 - 07/27/04 04:55 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hello all...

I just bought myself a DIY kit (hawaiin cubensis) the easy 1 and theres a couple of things i could do with knowing. My kit advises the temperature best at 24 degrees, this is so in the daytime however in the night / early morning can drop to as low as 20-22 - is this a problem??

Secondly I have a 4 foot long 40watt flourescent tube that i was thinking of using....is this appropiate or too light?? how far under would i place my terranium and for how long each day would i leave this light on for. any feedback would be HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

Cheers for reading
Kev

that's kind of cold so they're probably colonize kind of slow. you should check out the grow faq's for some basic plans on making an incubator.

once the substrate is fully colonized, just give them the light 24hrs. a day until they pin.

pin??

does this mean when theyre almost developed?? what exactly do i look for, or can u explain the term "pin" for me please?? i'm thinking if i leave my light on all the time even now then it'll warm it up a bit, its been in 2 days and theres mycellium forming already.

i have no idea of your setup and how it's going to grow mushrooms. what did you buy and where from? what came with it? i need some explanation on what exactly you have there as a 'kit'. did you get any instructions with this kit?

basically, you need to put spores into some type of sterile environment on some type of grain such as brown rice. once that jar becomes totally white from being fully colonized by the mycelium, (ideally)that's the time for the light depending on how you are going to grow from there.

you seriously need to read this:

aah sorry, thanks for that link i shall read through thoroughly. my setup is basically a small tub of substrate in like a plastic container, this i have placed in the botton of a bucket, base & sides of tub covered in tinfoil. about an inch or so of water in bottom of bucket and given it a fine misting. i have covered the top of the bucket in clingfilm & pierced several holes, after 2 days now the mycellium is appearing. i have taken care to sterilise all equipment used. am i right in saying this should be kept in the dark until pinning occurs??

oh i got the kit from gizmos-uk.com. the instruction said to place terranium straight into light or use low watt flourescent...however i just read on here to b in dark until colonised hence im a little confused..

so i'm thinking until the small pins appear, or until its covered in mycellium i should put the bucket in a dark cupboard perhaps??

pins won't start apearing if you put it in a drak cupboard, the myc needs light to form primordia

But until its fully colonized store it in the dark so that nothing forms prematurely
