First Flush - Shroom Directions
    #3935366 - 03/18/05 01:23 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey,

So I'm running my first flush and was wondering why my shrooms are growing in strange directions (some anyways). How do I get some good straight up growth for more even, pretty growth? I'm growing in a aquarium on perlite if that helps.

Happy shrooms,

Z

Mushrooms the use light for direction to grow. Most likey you're not lighting from directly overhead, or light is coming in from different angles, causing some confusion as to which way to grow. Try to have the light coming from directly overhead if you want vertical growth.

Hm.. they are growing already.. just in strange directions. The light cycle is 12/12 already b/c it's in a room with a window and I've got a bud plant flowering in there.

So what do I do? What's up?

Could it be that some of the shrooms were pins already growing when I birthed them?

Does it matter if they grow vertical or not?

Sorry for the delay, but I would also like to know if vertical growth is important or not. Although it is a pain to try and figure out if the caps are open or whatever.... Any ideas?

It doesnt matter really, can make a pain to print.

Your problem is your using a clear container with other light sources in the room besides the one right above it. They'll stretch towards the brighter light (you bud light). Cover the sides of the aquarium with black construction paper and put a flouro light directly overhead. And once they start pinning, you can cut back the time the light is on (directly over head) to 2-6 hours every day or two. 12/12 for prepinning is fine (even while the mushrooms grow its fine, if you want). Lights not as important for shrooms as bud..
