grow so far, and some questions
    #3262996 - 10/22/04 12:50 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)





There are alot of pins all along the bottom that aren't growing, and even more smaller primordia that the camera couldn't get very well. There are only about 100 that are over an inch now but tons more pins that arent taking off. Why is this? Also take a look at how much mycelium is covering the pins and on the bottom pic its all the way up the stem... is this bad? And how can I avoid this... sorry its my first grow.

fyi it is rye+straw. The strain is either camodian or GT (cant remember which tub is which) but im sure one of you can distinguish them. Thanks for the help, and im open to any tips to making my grow skills better. I think next time instead of a 60qt casing, ill make several showbox size ones. but let me know what you think

You may need an increase in your air exchange, the CO2 could be settling to the bottom and suffocating the pins. What is your RH, the humidity is probably too high.
"I think next time instead of a 60qt casing, ill make several showbox size ones but let me know what you think."
You may want to look into bulk (much more practical than a huge casing), or if you'd rather have several small casings you should look into the martha stewart setup.
Beautiful shrooms by the way, congrats!

i figured the humidity may be too high.. we fan probably 5 times a day if not more no misting or any humidifier or anything. light is on ~12 hours a day, notice how all the mushrooms lean toward the middle?

not sure of the RH, as i dont have an accurate hygrometer. one i have goes up to like 85 before it just says "HI"

ya they are stumpy little guys, duno why, but they have huge stalks, with fur coats at that. i bet they'll be extra potent.

what would i do differently for bulk? I have 10LBS of worm castings... i decided against it this time since its my first grow and the straw was colonizing well anyway in my other tub so i stuck with that just to be safe. could i just mix in worm poo next time?

is the mycelium growth around the pins going to affect their growth?

pasteurize bulk substrate, let it cool overnight, spawn myc to subtrate, and add a casing layer at your discretion.

so wouldn't the straw casing i did be considered a bulk casing? I added 4 rye jars to a bunch of pasteurized straw which filled like 4-5 inches of a 60qt tub.
