    #2941136 - 07/29/04 05:14 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hi all...Complete newbie here so bear with me, just had a Stropharia Cubensis kit thru the door and followed all instructions...I'm just wondering now if I used enough water as it said "moist on the top". What would happen if I didn't use enough water?....Should I open the bag and add more or just leave it and see what happens?

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Well the number one rule for newbs is let the damn thing be. That said I think most people agree that "field capacity" is where you want things. I'm sure if you followed the instructions that came with it you should be fine. Field capacity is when you squeeze it you feel the water, its moist, but only 1 drop maybe comes out if at all. That is perfect. When the material compresses in your hand and you can feel the moisture. Other than that you can tell certain substrates/casings by looking at the color of the material (like if its too dry, if its saturated it will just look wet)... I know peat, coir, brf, etc are easy to tell this way.

You may want to read around some of the faq's there are some great teks here and let me be the first to welcome you to the shroomery.... congrats on your kit.
