2 simple questions
    #419477 - 10/09/01 01:22 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I'm on my second batch of shrooms, and one of my oldest cakes has a blue-greenish color of mycelium appearing on it, I believe this normal, I just what to make sure ( The color is similar to the color on dried mushrooms). My second question is on air circulation. I have a large palastic container and I want to know the best way to keep enough o2 for the shrooms in the container. Would a 20-60 gallon fish tank air be enough, or would I need more, or is there a better way?

If the cake doesn't smell then it's probably bruising/blueing from the cake, it's ok.
The container size depends on the amount of cakes you put inside, more cakes, more Co2, then more space is needed so you don't have to fan all day. You can solve this problem by using an air pump.

The size of your growing chamber should depend on the amount of cakes/casings your planning to put in them and your method of providing humidity I would think. As far as providing oxygen to your shrooms there are two basic methods a) fanning manually b) air pump. Which one you'll want to use depends on you. Both are effective if done correctly.

Tell me something good then I might agree with you..

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create."

"There is a wealth of information built into us, tucked away in the genetic material in every one of our cells. The psychedelic drugs allow exploration of this interior world, and insights into its nature."
