stunted gowth
    #3654521 - 01/20/05 06:40 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have a nice harvest coming in and they looked beautiful, color, size, etc. then it seemed that mycelium started growing on the cap, and the growth has pretty much stunted. Any suggestions?

KSSS? just a guess but what strain is it? the mycelium on the caps is normal.

nope, there's one fat guy, but there pretty much idle, it might be not enough light, all other conditions are fairly good given my setup.

well its fairly simple right now. its PESH on straw in like a 10 quart rubbermaid, housed in an 18 gal rubbermaid, fanned and misted 4-5 times a day, light minimal(as in only when fanned, i gotta get my setup set up) temp is 70's with some fluxuation, thats pretty much it.

i've found colder will give you slower growth but mushrooms end up thicker fatter and bigger for it...

If your temps are in the 70's I would not do anything. My temps are in the high 70's to very low 80's (up to 82-84 OCCASIONALLY, usually more like 80-81) in one closet and more like 70-74 in the other. Temps cant really be controlled so the closets must remain that way and both work....but the low temps in the other definatly benifit the final weight.
