2nd flush questions...
    #3236996 - 10/09/04 06:35 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

im on my second flush,,, 1 casing has already began fruiting, the shrums are growing much bigger then they did on the first flush but there are less of them (doesnt seem like there are any aborts though.)

also there are small dimples forming on the tip of the caps on many of them (where on the first flush there were little bumps, theyre EQ's btw)

the other casings are just begining to pin,,, but there are not many... after first flush i dunked, and placed back into tins upside down and packed the edges with some verm (as well as adding a thin layer on top.) I put them back into the chamber at about 85 for a couple days, then dropped the temp to about 75, and turned the humidifier on as well as giving them about a half day of light every day...

can anyone tell me what is causing the dimples, and why there are not many pins forming?

Dimples are normal and there arent many pins because you flipped it over. Why not keep it fruiting from the same surface instead of confusing it? Second flush will usually have bigger and more shrooms then the first flush. Thin substrate will give you much smaller flushes after your first too.

Next time after dunking, do not flip it and stick some new casing in the sides and in any holes but very light. Chances are you already will have primordia formed ready for the next flush all on the top but if they don't get fruiting conditions won't grow. After patching mist it down well and throw it back into the fruiting chamber.

damn,,, yeah i though i read somewhere about flipping,,, i think it might have been talking about cakes though... it almost makes me want to flip them back since i know the other side is good and colonized... but im sure that would just make things worse, since they have been this way for about 4 days now... if this flush is smaller then the first one was do you suggest that i flip them back over to the original way after i dunk, or should i just keep them the way they are now?

Keep them the same way they are now. Just make sure you dont flip them nixt time.
