Two lonely pins, one crappy method, what do i do know? (pics)
    #3904053 - 03/11/05 06:51 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

So I started my adventure in mycelial developement about two months ago now and was unfortunate enough to select the "shroom wizard's grow guide" as my tech of choice (:thumbdown:). At the time I found the shroomery to be confusing and the wizard's tech to be pleasingly simple and easy. I have since come to the realization that simple + easy = shitty yields + wasted effort. Anywho, I've since traded up to a PMP with double end cased and dunked cakes (back to basics).

But none-the-less I now have three cases sitting around which are non-optimal at best. They're cased with a 50/50 verm/potting soil mix on the bottom and straight potting soil on top (not peat moss or anything like that, just straight-up sterilized potting soil w/o any additives or shit like that). Here's a pic of the three cases:



So first off I think I let them incubate or whatever (kick it with their tops on in the dark) for too long (about 7 days). Also I don't think that the casing method/materials were so good at all. So far I haven't had them in a terrarium, I've just been misting them about 1-4 times a day as needed to keep the surface not-dry (the RH in my house is around 70%).

Yesterday I saw the first pinhead in one of the cases, today it appears that there are two, but that's it and they're both near the sides. I think it might be overlay but the mycelium peeking out still looks fluffy and not matted at all. (I know I probably should have spot-covered the mycelium peeking up, but I didn't know that when I uncovered the cases).

This is a pic of the case that's pinning and a closeup of the section with the pinheads:


And here is larger pic of one of the other cases that's not pinning yet:


Oh yeah, all three cases are ecuador strain and the room temp is around 69-75.

So basically my questions are: Are these cases overlaid? and what should I do now? I've accepted that these cases are pretty fucked up but I'd still like to get at least some good prints or something out of them, and hopefully as many of our little fungal friends as possible. Do I do something now or wait till after my first flush, etc.... any suggestiongs?  :grin:

There is absolutely nothing wrong with them with the exception they are WAY too dry. Mist them pretty heavy. Don't be affraid, Just don't mist them to the point water is standing on them. Then cover all 3 casings with wax paper. Kick back and watch the fun begin.

mushrooms growing just on the side = a very dry casing.  It's sad to see :frown:

Cool.. yeah, I've been afraid to overwater cuz I read too much about overlay :tongue:.... oops. I'll be sure to water them a lot more then.

Won't that mess up the air exchange? Or should I poke some holes in them or somethin?

BTW... thanx for the tips guys.

you could try fanning them a couple of times a day for air exchange. dont think poking holes ontop of that would hurt anything

Oh yeah... another question. Do I keep misting after the cases start pinning (keeping in mind that they are not in a terrarium)? I read that after the pins show up the mycelium already has enough moisture to finish the job. Or does that only apply if they're in like 95% humidity?

IMO you should stop misting once pinheads form. in your position, however, i would continue misting because that really dry casing layer is going to fuck you more than misting would.
