LIGHTING???
    #3066652 - 08/29/04 10:14 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I am doing a bulk grow with straw, and I can't seem to figure out why I still have a lot of aborted mushrooms. I fan and mist 3-4 times a day. The only thing I can think about is lighting. I use a black storage bin for the bulk grow, and lighting is mainly regular daylight from the window. Light does get inside the bin (i can see inside the bin), but is it enough?

Then what could it be? The substrate depth? The straw is 3" deep.

Misting 3-4 times a day is a bit much, imho. Doesn't bulk create some humidity by itself? Try cutting back on misting.

I'd agree..misting 3-4 times a day is excess. I'd say about once a day and keep fanning a bunch.

So are you saying over-misting can cause aborted mushrooms?

But when I mist, it's like a single spray, not much, just to help the humidity rebuild more quickly.

Yeah over misting can cause aborts. Even still I think that might be to much. Thats all your using for humidity though possibly since its bulk? Besides the casing layer of course.. Well light I've found causes smaller stunted shrooms. I like to drop light back to very minimal light 8 hours a day or so once the pinset has happened. I noticed on casings that were shaddowed by my previous light position grew far larger fruits and had less aborts. Seems to be working cool. I didnt have an outragous number of aborts before anyway..
