Twisted shrooms ?
    #3165991 - 09/22/04 07:26 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)



These were grown in a poor man's pod with a nightlight attached to the roof of the pod. The container is opaque, so this should have been the only source of light.

Why didn't the shrooms grow straight up? One of them is twisted completely around and is growing downwards. Did I do something wrong?

Woah that looks crazy. I have no clue why it would grow downwards even though the light is on top

How long each day is your light on, and how bright is the light you are using?

and how hot is it? If it's on the lid it is very close to the fruits. And how much surface area does your perlite have uncovered? It looks like it could be several things. low humidity, uneven heat, length of time light is on etc....

The light is on 18 hours per day now. The night light is very bright. I thought I had the temps stabilized with a water heater...it is much colder outside than inside the container.

I hope it is not low humidty, but most of the perlite is covered with my casing boxes.

I should also point out that I have a layer of water drops over much of the casing. I posted about it before, but nobody seemed too concerned.

Id suggest getting a better light if you cant handle having od shaped shrooms. Really it doesn't matter if your shrooms dont grow perfectly straight. A dual bulb flourescent shoplight, which you can pick up at like a fred meyers would correct this problem.

The more retarded the shroom, the more retarded you get.

You shouldnt have a heater on in your fruiting chamber unless your chamber is in the low 60's without it (keeping in mind even if the outer air is, the myc and light will give the chamber some heat). I'd take out the heater for sure.

Also is your container like white? or reflective? Cause the shrooms could be growing towards the light bouncing off the sides. Tends to happen in any containers that arent black if you have the light that close and especially actually in the terrerium.
