1st Grow SEA OF SHROOMS, Pics!!!!
    #4111929 - 04/29/05 06:33 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)











Hey everybody, these are pictures of my first grow. I used the sea of shrooms method. I cased with 50 / 50 verm/ peat moss. Each cup has 1/2 of a pf cake in it. The cakes are still pinning.
Im not quite sure what strain they are, we used 4 different strains when innoculating the cakes, and these were the only ones that made it.
Humidity was around 90 when pinning, but now is in the mid 80's. Temps are around 75-77 deg. controlled by a heating pad on the bottom of the terranium.
I am using a fish tank bubbler , and a cup of perlite for humidification

I would like to get some constructive criticism on these. What should i do to increase my first flush's yield.
Thanks alot

Looks nice to me. Your humidity says 53%. Is this correct or is it because the lid is open?

nice job, but if you want to see the real "Sea of shrooms" you should see some of agar's posts. :smile:

TODAY,
Mind posting a link?

xpaciscool,
Had you thought about removing the casings/cakes from the cup after pinning to increase yields? I am wanting to give this "sea of shrooms" a shot as a transition from cakes to casings.

Are yields higher using this method as apposed to just birthing regular PF cakes?

its incorrect because the lid is open, The lid was opaque and i had to cut two big rectangles out of it , and put plexi glass in its place, like a window. The window gets really foggy so i couldn't get a good pic.
What is the best humidity to have during the whole fruiting cycle, because the cakes are still pinning,but i recently have lowered the humidity due to white mycelium being on the caps. Will the rest of the casings still pin? Should i make it higher?
THanks,
xpaciscool

channelzero, if i removed them from the cups, then only the top of the cake wud be cased, would mushrooms still grow through the casings, or wud they just grow out of the sides?

They would still grow out the casing layer and the sides. Kinda like a double end cased cake.

I thought the mycelium on caps is an indication of low humidity. Yap, that's what it says on the PF Tek. Maybe you should try going the other way. I'm a relative newbie, so I would wait for a more experienced grower to give you advise.

Good luck.
