help!!!!!!!
    #4253227 - 06/03/05 07:49 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

hi,. i have a couple questions for ya guys,. i'm new to this forum,. though i've been reading your post for a couple months while i have been growing mine.,. i used popcorn for sub.,.coir/verm for casing,. i'll include a pic in here,. but here's my questions,.
first of,. i have some decent pins growing but there not growing in the middle,. should i patch the middle area lightly or just let it go, and hope it pins next flush? also i have alot of myc growth around the bases of my shrooms, why is that? i have humidity at about 80, and temp at 75,. i know i should have humidity at about 75 but i can't get it down,i fan it atleast 5 times a day. maybe my guage is broken though,. i have an air pump with two stones for better air exchange, and two inches of perlite 1 inch water,.
Also about 20 of these are growing faster than the others, should i pick them when they are ready and let the others grow for a few days or just remove them all at the same time?
another thing, the veil has just started to break on two of them, but they are still pretty small, about 4 inches, how much longer should i let them grow?, the caps aren't opened yet just the veil has started to break.. [image][/image]

Hmmm. It's too late for patching you have pins... You will need to wait until after your first flush to do anything. You should pick them all at the same time.. so maybe wait until some are more mature. Your humidity is fine... no need to get it down more.

After you pick you can patch the casing... or dunk.. or do all sorts of things. But wait until after.

Hope that helps some.

Get a coolmist. Keep the humidty at 95+ until pins form again.(Once pins form lower the humdity to around 80%) Keep misting until pins form. Drill some holes in your tub and stuff them with polyfil for better air exchange.

I am not sure about this yet.. but I think adding a CPU fan to the lid and running it until pins form is a great way to get a better pinset. But I'm not sure of that yet.

Good luck

One more thing. This is an excerpt from Paul Stamets:
"Work done by Lambert (1938) has shown that a pinhead of Agaricus brunnescens with a diameter of 2 millimeters fully develops into a mature mushroom in twenty-two days at 50 ?F., in ten days at 60 ?F. and in six days at 70 ?F. Although mushrooms develop more quickly at 70 ?F., overall yields diminish."

That is a different species.. but I think that will hold true for P.C. although I have not tried it yet. Some may disagree.. I think lower temps will help increse yields.

Why? I have read several different things on it.. while not all pertaining to P.C. they all suggest lower temperatures will increase overall yields. Since I just started.. I have not been able to verify it personally.. So I would love your input. What temp do you suggest? What temps have you tried.. with what success?

I was not very clear.. I mean lower temps until pin formation. Then raise them slightly to the normal mid 70's suggestion.
