Skinny Pesa
    #3568530 - 01/01/05 06:33 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Pulled my first flush from the pesa strain. They looked great, but most were very skinny and dried up to nothing. I don't think it was from a lack of moisture,I'm using perlite and now misting my casings and tank to make even more moisture for them. Please help i want fatties.

I used whole cakes, and cakes sliced into three pieces with a decent layer of casing on top. Also I did fan alot, but not as much now.

U should crumble ur cakes. The mycelium grows back stronger. Lots of ppl have told me to crumble, not slice. I suggest dropping ur cake into a sterile (Wiped w/ lysol wet wipe for example) baggy, and crumbling it from the outside.

from what i read today, you might want to try a thicker casing layer, like 1.5" or so, i guess as they grow through it it helps make them a bit more hardy

well done, you got fruits! many achieve less early on.
fat shrooms come from good genetics, plentiful nutrients (esp straw & poo), deep substrate layers, and perfect environmental conditions. it's fun to practice - i went from these


to these


in 3 months, and so can you  :laugh:
