veil tearing guestion (pic)
    #3841704 - 02/27/05 04:44 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

OK this is my very first pf cake and it seems to be doing well . My question is it looks like the veil is starting to tear already on the biggest mushroom. Is there some sort of changes i can make in the environment to stop this from happening until there bigger. I don't want a bunch of inch and a half shrooms

Bad luck
you can stop this by putting them in temps beneath 60F, they will stop growing then.... :laugh:

The smaller will grow a bit more, but such is life dude!

The veil tears when it wants. If you want bigger shrooms, you need better and more substrate. It aint size of the shroom that counts anyway, its the punch it packs. Those look to be nice and thick. I've always found nice thick ones to pack wonderful punches.

No, It varies with subs and environmental conditons.

Better subs.=more nutes

That means either bigger flushes Or more mushies Or more shrooms per flush

yes I'm using perlite but like others I'm having problems finding an accurate hygrometer . And it looked a Little dry in the pod. I have an air pump and a bubble wand in there i fan and mist but I'm thinking the humidity is a little low.. the pod doesn't seem as moist as others
