Messed up cakes (added pic)
    #3324315 - 11/05/04 01:57 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hi,

I birthed my cakes about 5 days ago after I was forced to let them hang out in a closet until I was ready.

Anyway... I only had a few shrooms (some funny looking ones from lysol I think as well). I did not dbl end case. So, I scraped off most of the verm layer when I birthed... some was really stuck on and had to stay. I put the cakes in the chamber with the leftover verm side down.



As I said, only a few mushies.

Well I noticed some of the cakes appeared to be getting pushed over. For a test, I flipped over a cake and noticed about 20 mushies growing out of the bottom!!! Well I was amazed to find every cake this way!

Questions... they look a little squished, but healthy. Can I get them to stand up or do you think they'll do it themselves no that they have light? Should I worry about the formerly exposed to light top side, now the bottom popping shrooms (none yet)? If they do grow from the bottom again, should I worry about rot?

The moral of the story I think is to double end case or roll. I will be on the next flush.

they should fix themselves out i would think. keep fanning them and have good light so they grow up from now on.

Thanks ... I fan about 4 times a day. The light source is a window ... The only artificial light they get is when I turn the light on for a few minutes at night.

Wow ... just wanted to add the smaller mushies are already starting to point skyward!!

Boy am I excited.  For a while I was thinking I must have messed up with only a few pins and shrooms.  My yield so far apears to have gone up 10x :wink:

I predict next Friday is going to be a very, very good day :wink:

Sorry for the extra post, just want to share my joy with people :smile:

im intersted in finding out why you got pins on the underside and now the top or sides fisrt where you light source it hittinh.....

- what kinda terrium do you have setup??
-how do you mist and get the humidity up?
- is your container clear or light source only from top?

Hi Mykro Guy

1) I've got a rather large rubbermaid with bubblers in it. Local hydro stores would only sell me huge bags of growrocks. Too many for me and perlite was to messy. Drilled holes in the bottom to drain excess water from bubbler spray. Added shields around the bubblers to keep spray off the cakes seems to work. Humidity stays at 97-100%

2) I have not been misting with this set up... humidity is high so I did not think I needed to. Should I?

3) Clear container, cakes sitting on lids from deli containers which are clear. Rubbermaid sits on a dark surface.

COuld some light be "reflecting" off the bottom of the rubbermain I wonder? Maybe I should get some dark coloured things to set the cakes on?

**Important question** ...

Many of my veils seem to be breaking early. It's too early to tell if this will happen with all but I'm worried. Even on small mushies some of the veils seem to be tearing off. Ideas?
