My shrooms stopped growing is 68-70 degrees ok.
    #2985574 - 08/10/04 12:50 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

My casing finnaly started to grow about 5 days ago. The mushrooms are about 1/2 ince to smaller, but seem to have stopped growing. They are not black on the caps. I read somewhere that when they start they grow to full size in about 12 hours. How long does it take for them to grow out. What should I do.
Also my plastic container cracked at the bottom so I cannot hold water. That means I cannot run my heater. Will they be alright to fruit at 68 to 70 degrees, or do I need a new container.

Misting directly can make them abort.

May be outdoors, indoors it takes several days.

That is a fine temp to fruit at. They don't need to be incubated while fruiting unless it is colder than that in the house.

i suggest going to wal-mart and buying a new rubber maid container($4.00) , then get your temp up to 78-80 and they will fruit alot faster.make sure you have a spray shield.it sounds like your losing humidity.peace!

I've seen them grow in the 40s and 50s, albeit much more slowly. Aborts from direct misting are an accepted fact and is pointed out in most every grow guide. It's possible to do, but is it really a good thing to encourage newbies to do?

In nature cubies don't abort when rained on ya know why lots of fresh air thats whats makes the difference. I agree water delivery is something that is learned not read. Grow guides have alway discouraged forcefully misting casing directly especially during pinning because #1 it will "pan" the casing surface locking out oxygen and leaving it with little to no microclimate. And #2 ANY type of moderate to heavy misting during pinning can/will destroy developing pins. Over the years I've owned and read most of the growing guides out there because of my obsession with mushrooms. But alas through my obsession I can hear what your saying newbies are not the commercial mushroom industry and they have no clue as to what a very fine mist or a moderate mist even looks like. Water delivery is an art in itself and learning it right (correctly) from the beginning is in my book the best way to learn anything. GL guys
