Only a few mushroms
    #3880865 - 03/07/05 01:53 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I was wondering what is the reason for the small amount of mushrooms that are growing. This picture there are only 3 and the other cake I have only has 1. In all the pictures I am seeing, the shrooms are growing out from all over the place, mine are only on the top of the cake.

Many reasons...ill list a FEW

A) Too much c02 in your terrium
B) You didn't Dunk
C) You didn't roll in verm.
D) You didn't cold shock
E) You didnt put in Fruiting conditions at the right time.
F) You didn't read up enough dot dot dot

Not trying to cut ya deep, just trying to help you out, Best way to learn is to first Fuck up, Then read and then try again and either you'll be rewarded or you'll fuck up again...All depends on how much effort you put into it...Gl

I would try harvesting them ones you have and increase the humidity. Or maybe dunk them and leave them in the frig for 12 hours and try fruiting again.

Cold shocking is not necessary and has not been proven to increase flushing. I cold dunk, not cold shock. The difference being dunking in the fridge to help prevent any possible contams. I usually never even do this and have beautiful results. I do agree that if you just leaving them as cakes, then you want to dunk, but a cold shock is not necessary to get good pinset. Also in my experience, high CO2 levels can still have good pinsets, but the fruits tend to be very thin and scrawny.

In short yes do all these things that ignostic has suggested.

1.Increase air exchange.
2.Dunk and Roll after you harvest.
3.Increase your humidity-Unless your allready at 90-100%

How many air exchanges a day is good?

You can get away with 2-4 a day.

sludge is correct. Using the PMP is the best way to get automated air exchange other than a martha. Search for the Poor Mans Pod.

How many are good...3-6 per hour. Which is why a fish pump or cool mist is WONDERFUL. Like Diver said though, you can get away with 2-4 a day.

I have been fanning 3-4 times per day. And I am using perlite so my humidity guage is always reading above 92%.

I did not dunk them. I have a few more jars that fully colonized about 4 days ago. Should I dunk them now or wait longer?
