Where did i err?
    #3531663 - 12/22/04 02:19 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

hi guys, any help advice would be great...

...i bought a spawn kit and followed the steps to the "T" but 9 weeks later there has only been a bit of white fluff that has since turned into old white tooth paste.
I took into account that my waiting period could be longer as it is winter here and temp cannot be more than 68-71 degs or i'll go poor in heating bills! (although i put an electric heating pad underneath my big tupperware container this week). And i keep it moist all this time...directions said boil substrate (1hr)..let cool at room temp (3hrs)...substrate into tupperware container pressdown lightly, darkness for 5 days...add soil, starter, a little h2o, spawn...mix, add to substrate....darkness 12 days.....then light for 12 hours/day....."fruiting will then begin/start"...

So nothing for 8 weeks then they recommended 115 ml of hydrogen peroxide sprayed over 'soil'.....surface crackled and turned almost all white, then dissapeared......continued hand-spraying to keep humidity right....is 10 weeks now..

Project kaput or can be saved/wait longer?

Hi

Best ask in the cultivation forum, you'll get a far better response there.

wow there is so many things wrong with your setup. i take it you just ordered the bag and didnt really do much reading up. http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23593 read this and understand it fully. answer this real quick so i can help. are you in the step of fruiting or colonizing? your post is confusing to me. it sounds as if the place you ordered from did not give good directions (wait 12 days, you cant just wait a magic number you have to wait untill its ready) and more. your temps are all screwed up you need 84-86F for colonizing and 74-76F for fruiting. you need high humidity. you need air exchange. but read that tek i gave you.
