Mushrooms never growing straight? why?
    #3095946 - 09/05/04 08:22 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

hey
I have done alot of casings, and it seems they never (at least the last 3) grow straight up. They enjoy growing sideways, and they grow limp sometimes too. They look strong when pinning, but after like 5-6 days when they are to grow, they go limp.
Any help with getting them to grow up and straight? I have a cool light shoplight on them for 6hours a day.

I believe they grow towards light? So possibly move ligh directly above terriums?

And give more than 6 hrs per day.

A lot of people on here will tell you "a flashlight once per day" or 6 hours/day will work, but if you want mushies straight a a pencil, use 12light/12dark and like the abvove perosn said, make sure the light is centered above the terrarium.

Last thing: make sure the sides of your terrarium are opaque, no matter how much light you give - if the sides are clear there's a possibility your casing/cake will look like a bad hair day.

Make sure the light isn't reflecting off the sides either. If you've got your casing in a white terrarium (or any light colour really) the light can bounce off.

Besides more light from above which does help it sounds like they maybe dehydrating also if they're limpy are you continuing to mist on a schedule? You know they suck up a tremendous amount of water as they mature if casings are to dry in the first place the shroomies cell walls will not be swollen with water as they should be then they can go limp as limp as a.........

Woops. should have added. I use the martha with a coolmist and a ultrasonic, with a coolight on, now for 12/12.

Should I cover the sides of the martha?

I'd think that would be fine. I know Magash doesnt cover the sides of his...does very similar to you. Sorry I have no more advice for you :frown:

Yeah, he used to cover the side with foil, but he said it doesn't help. I'll just keep experimenting. thanks.
