tips for next time (W/PICS)
    #3928120 - 03/16/05 11:29 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I just harvested my first bulk grow. I was pretty dissapointed at how the pinset came up and the total yield. here is a pic right before I harvested:


As you can see, most of the surface area was full of aborts or nothing at all. The container is an 18 gallon ~ 68 litre. I fanned by taking the lid off and using it to fan it out 3 -4 times per day. But it sometimes went as long as 12 hours without being fanned. I was also misting until I saw pins coming up. Substrate was about 3 inches of chopped straw spawned with 3 qts of wbs and casing layer was about 1/2in 50/50 verm coir. Any tips for next time would be greatly appreciated. BTW total wet weight 550 grams

looks like your pinset wasnt as even as it could have been,next time try to patch over colonized parts of the surface,the 12 hours without misting couldve been the reason for aborts,and so could the misting until pins show IMO i mist after pins have established themselves,and thats a light misting at that...still decent,but you learn from your mistake..keep shrooming!!

only bad thing was the uneven colonization of the casing, the fanning and humuduty was cool. Wait for the second flush

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Don't use a lid next time. Simply use a clear piece of plastic or wax paper over the casing instead. If you use the lid, leave it on very loose. Otherwise put the lid on crooked a bit to ensure good air exchange.

Add 50% pasturized horse manure - to straw - next time. Patch casing cover, until you get even myc showing. Rig a coolmist to blow into the set/up. Doing so, gives you high rh & good air exchange. That should resolve some issues.
