PLEASE HELP ME, I'M SO CONFUSED HERE!!
    #3285795 - 10/27/04 07:43 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I recently purchased an oyster shell grow bag off of a website, along with a syringe of Amazonian strain spores. I got the bag to cover with white fuzz, but I can't get any shrooms to grow. Someone told me to take the stuff out and to put it into ziploc bags along with a humidifier next to them. No shrooms are growing, but the fuzz continues to cover the growing medium. I have a 15 watt light in with them, but pointed away as to not give them direct light. Should I leave it as is, or what should I do?
I don't have any money right now to go buying anything extra. Is there anything I can do?

How long has it been since it fully colonized.

They have been fully colonized for about a week, maybe a week and a half. I checked them this morning, still nothing.

You haven't opened the bag yet have you?

If this is your first grow, I advise against opening the bag until your first flush is ready.

Put your bag in a warm place where air can exchange, try to keep it around 73 - 75 degrees (basically room temp). I would just throw it on my dresser because I imagnie you have an air-exchange filter in the bag.

Just keep waiting, give them the ideal temperature (maybe your humidity isn't very high where you live?) and light 12/12 hours a day until pins start (idealy, even .02 seconds of light can initiate pinning, but not like 12 hours does), and when pinning starts use a 6/18 light/dark cycle.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

yeah, the original bag was opened. But the one's I put the colonized stuff into i have kept closed. I have them in a small closet about 2 feet high, 2 feet deep, and 3 feet long. I have the humidifier and light in with them. They are still colonizing, and look great. It's been about two weeks since I could see the first signs of colonization. I had a couple of spots that looked like the were starting to pin, but the shrunk back into the main chunk.

Sounds to me that the bag ISN'T fully colonized yet, in which case you should get that light out of there and let the Myc. do its work. After the WHOLE thing is covered in the white fuzz, leave it alone for ANOTHER 3-4 days than throw your light on them, cold shock, and try to get alittle more gas exchange going, not sure how you do that with those bags, filter patch included on bag? Everything is going good, relax and let them do what they do.

:thumbup:

The only additional suggestion I would make other than turning off your pinning triggers and trying to keep it colonizing, is break the substrate up real good inside the bag unless it's already over 80% covered with mycelium, in which case just listen to sublime and wait another 2-4 days after it's 100% covered, then introduce your pinning triggers.

Thanks alot. It's nice to have quality support. Everything my friends told me never worked. You guys seem to know what to do. I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes.

Those ones that are colonizing need to be in the dark if at all possible! :wink:
