Eq on Straw. Overlay problems
    #4234316 - 05/29/05 08:52 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I am using the double tub method. 2" straw, .5" sterilized coco/verm.


That guy was patched and exposed to light 11 days ago. The big cluster in the back probally pinned early due to a shallow casing dept there and light polution.






I think I have some serious overlay here. The second 2 pictures are close ups. That tub is only 7 days old, and 4 days behind the previous one. I was wondering what I should do with about it. I am so excited about the success of the first one, I do not want to screw this one up. Those balls you see are water dropplets and definately not any type of pin head formation. I am pretty sure I know the problem. When I cased the first one the casing soil was really light and fluffly. Grab a handful, squeeze it, like 1 drop would come out. The second one I believe was quite a bit more moist.

btw, I intended to turn this into a grow log type post.

oh If I could get some ratings as well as feedback that would be great

The one in the first pic seems like it has a ton of pins on it :thumbup:

If the second seems stalled or overlayed, just put a little bit dryer casing than the first so it will absorb some of that moisture sitting and straight in the fruiting chamber, tho slow, it should be fine :mushroom2:

Guy looks great. Will havest that big cluster tomorrow and collect the spores.


I covered all the suspect overlay with some dryer casing soil. However there was a cluster of pins that formed in the back. I guess I'll just let em grow.
I am over the 24 hour upload limit so I can't post the closeup with a few pins.

Yea sterilites. I put duct tape around em to seal it up cause the "lip" didn't match up that well. I think they are larger than the size most people use. 66 quart. Got em at target.

What kind of yeild did you get out of your setup?
