Early side growth (before pinning)
    #4033969 - 04/09/05 12:57 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I have a question regarding ealry side growth. AFOAF had colonized straw, then used a 60/40 core/verm casing. However, before the casing was fully colonized, (only a few small whire patches), shrooms began to grow up from underneath the casing on the sides, seemingly avoiding the casing all together. AFOAF decided to pin right away, and so the first flush was not all that great, as not much was colonized of the casing layer. My question is: Can anything be done at this point to improve the second flush? (i.e. can the casing layer be colonized more at this point?) and how can this be prevented? Thanks in advance!!!!

Sounds like side pinning. Make sure your container is completely darkened on the sides + bottom. Needs to be opaque, translucent isn't good enough.

Also, you should fill in any gaps along the sides of your container where the substrate/casing pulled away, with new casing material.

No gaps / no light anywhere but on your cropping surface. Stick to that in the future and it will help you out tons.

can't stress what diver said enough: cover the bottoms with tape, immediately. Diver has a nice 'tek' in his signature
