These cakes just wont fruit! Pics- try and analyze whats goin wrong here
    #4041988 - 04/11/05 06:46 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I placed these mushrooms in the fruiting chamber on 3/21 the first flush started to come with about 3 medium size mushrooms between 2 cakes after the first few were picked the cakes just stopped growing full size mushrooms. They continued to colonize slowly and when new mushrooms sprouted they only grew to about a centimeter before they dropped spores.
Also check out the pictures of the casing and let me know if you think everything is going good.

Room temperature of 73 degrees
Fanned 2-4 times daily
Sprayed 1/9 hydrogen peroxide 8/9 water on perlite every other day around the sides of bin.
Light is on for 8-12 hours a day

It's probably just a poor fruiting substrain, or could need water....
give them a dunk and see what happens....

What strain, BTW???

I agree it looks fine. If no more fruits after that first three, it sounds like you indeed got screwed by the luck of the draw with multispore injection. Some substrains are simply very poor fruiters. It will probably work better next time.

Case them Bitches up.. I bet it well start pinning soon after that .. If the subsrate is poor maybe a peat and verm case will add enough nutients to fruit better.

Those casing layers are getting overlaid for sure...notice the rhizos forming together into puff balls and all that water sitting on the mycelium?

Everything is way to wet in there IMO which is leading to continuation of veg growth, and not letting it start pinning. If it were me, I'd cold shock everything with no pins/shrooms on it.

>If the subsrate is poor maybe a peat and verm case will add enough nutients to fruit better.

Would you mind explaining to me whether its peat or verm that has all these nutrients in it and how nutrients in a casing layer would aid fruiting without providing an open road for contams (if you were to add nutrients since verm and peat dont contain any)...

By the way...GT's that werent cold shocked for me, took 14 days in the chamber to pin and turned into overlay, JUST like yours.



In the end they fruited fine:


But a cold shock helped future casings...thats the only strain I've had to cold shock so far (of 16).
