my cakes don't smell like mushrooms anymore. birthed a few days ago.
    #3254920 - 10/20/04 05:20 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

after they had been in the terrarium for 1 day, they REALLY smelled like fresh mushrooms, great smell! but when I fanned today they didn't smell nearly as strong. when I opened the terrarium a few minutes after having fanned (to take the pictures) they were smelling stronger. this makes me wonder if it has something to do with the amount of CO2. I've been fanning every 4 hrs. except at night they go 8 hrs without being fanned. do they look a little dry? I've got perlite in there, plus a water bath (72F), and I've been misting a couple times a day. there's quite a bit of condensation on the lid each time I go to fan, but the cakes don't glisten with moisture.

also, the mycelium on the pictured cake looks a little blue on top. this may just be bruising, but if you think it's something else please let me know. this is my first grow, which is why I'm not casing yet. all cakes were cold shocked (on recommendation from the spore seller for this particular strain Gulf Coast). you can also see I tried the double casing tek on two of the cakes.

thanks for your comments and suggestions  :thumbup:

still not too late to put some moist verm on top, though. Looks like it's still growing.
