Caps opening up too early??
    #4033662 - 04/09/05 10:28 AM (12 years, 24 days ago)

I'm about 3 days into pinning my 1st grow. Growing GT. The largest mushroom is only around 1 inch long and not very thick (1/8th inch maybe). I'm noticing that some of the caps are already starting to open up. Is this normal? I didn't expect the caps to start to open until they had some more bulk.

sounds like you need to regulate you temps better. also, how often do they get fresh air?

Right now I only fan twice a day. Once before I go to work, and again when I get home.

I'd invest the 20 bux for a PMP setup so they get more constant fresh air...

What's a PMP? just an air pump? Also, should I pick these or let them get a little more bulky, even though the caps are starting to open?

If the veil just started to break, I'd say hold off a day or so and see if they get any bigger, but they won't get much bigger if they do.  This is a PMP... GL bro :stoned:

Thank you for the link and comments!  I will def. have to modify my chamber into a PMP.  Looks like it takes some of the hassle out.  I work most of the day so I really can't tend to the chamber except at night, this is just what I need.  :tongue2:

Yea, I'm on my last casing before I move to bulk, but it's WBS cased with 3" of colonized WBS, top is 3/4" of verm/peat/coco PH balanced. A ton of pins came up last week and they're been growing quite consistent but slowly. They're equadors and they're about 1" but it looks like the veils are starting to tear on some. It's in a martha setup w/ultrasonic and gets fanned about 5+ times a day. I also don't understand why they're opening so short yet my temp and RH are always consistent.
