S.O.S. - Birthing/Fruiting Help...
    #3310751 - 11/02/04 07:51 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Dear Mushroom Gurus,

Please help!

First time grower here - PF tek.

The first batch of Amazons (4 cakes) and Golden Teachers (1 cake) were coldshocked in my fridge for 10 hours, then placed in a clear Tupperware tank with a lid on (not the tightest fit - no condensation) with 2 inches of perlite and 1 inch of water in a 85'F room with a 40 watt "Daytime Deluxe" fluorescent lighting at 12 hours per day - the cakes sitting on aluminum foil squares.  After two days, I lost one to green mold, and today (after two more days), I lost another.  The other ones in the container look "iffy."

I should add, that when the first cake was contaminated, I added a humidifer into the room, and I left the Tupperware container slightly cracked so it would become more humid inside.

I have 8 more jars ready to go (4 Amazon and 4 GT), and I don't want to lose them.  Can someone, please give me a simple and effective birthing/fruiting method?  I'm planning to coldshock the jars tomorrow night...

I've read so many different methods, and I'm feeling overwhelmed - having come this far.  Suggestions?

Thank you for your time and support.

Sadly, I lost the first five cakes.

I built the PMP, and it is giving me 95% humidity.

Lowered the temp, and the cakes (4 Amazon, 4 GT) are dunking.

Thank you very much for the assistance.

I'll give a follow-up shortly.

That sucks...

You need to be cleaner in your environment.

My house is by no means sterile.... I haven't had any problem with contams at all. I'm not sure what my secret is.. lol

No condensation on the sides doesn't mean that it isn't humid in your tubs. Keeping the lid cracked was probably a bad idea.

Go buy a couple of in-line air filter for your pumps or you can make a couple. If nothing else, try putting your pumps in a tyvek envelope. That is if you want to take the extra steps...

I'm sorry about your loss. Good luck

Sam
