3rd week with 3 pins..... (pics)... help please.
    #4292794 - 06/13/05 09:13 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

ok here is the deal.

a friend of a friend of a friend... yadayadayda.. asked me to post these

my friends cat tried to grow these. they are in their third week of fruiting. the cat grew these for 2 and 1/2 weeks with out any pins. (he lost 6 other jars due to comtams... so the cat only has these two. anyways. after not pinning and getting pretty fusturated, the cat decided to try the dunk, roll and shock... and two days later three pins FINALLY formed.






here are some specs...

PF-tek cake.
temp. 69oF
in a clear blue rubermaid  container in indirect sunlight (Poor man pod set up)
humidity got very low when the cat didn't check it for 5 days. *the cat grows off site*... this is just before he dunked it.


my question is, now this is 3 weeks after the cat birthed them.  now 3 pins are FINALLY starting to show on 2 cakes. (they were at the bottom first before the cat flipped the cakes over) do you think these will produce some mushrooms for the cat? any suggestions? the cat didn't mist because he thought PMP would be enough humidity. should he buy a spray can? and where should he spray?

these are B+ strain. they colonized super fast but fruited slow due to low humidity im guessing... is there a better strain for cats who have a low intelligence? one that fruits fast? roadkill told me south american was a pretty fast fruiter. (thankyou man if you read this!) any help will get you +mushroom rating :smile:

the cat changed the container tonight to the one in the pics... and was also wondering if it would help to supplement it with a 20watt grow light  and maybe raising the temp by a few degrees... the cat took apart the pmp obviously.. just relying on fanning it a few times a day now. :confused:

73 to 76 degrees F. is ideal for fruiting.

95% humidity or more.

air exchange is important...either have an automatic system or fan them 4 to 6 times a day.

give them light.

I always had a hard time getting B+ to pin too.

where oh where is your rh at? cakes do need a high humidity to do well ime.
what is up with your perlite, looks like lots of dirt and shit in there with it.
the strain is not going to help much if the conditions for prime growth aren't being met.
good luck to ya
peace

well the perlite was covered and such. the cat just scooped it out and put in a new container... what you see on top of that is what was on bottom of the other container, after all the water washing all that crud down.

RH=... hopefully high with the new container... heh

do you guys think the 20watt light would help pinning?

never have supplemented lighting. what comes in the window has always been enough for me. if i can see the cake then it is getting enough light is my theory.
what do you mean by that was what was in the bottom of the other container? referring to the perlite question.

do you have water droplets on the side of your fruiting chamber?

if not...add a little more water to the perlite.

and mist the sides a little...with a spray bottle.

do you have a humidity gauge?

your light will trigger pinning.

where would be a good place to buy a sprayer? would walmart have that? and no i don't have a humidity counter, but i could buy one easy... i think they are only like 10 bucks. the new container the cat made does have water dropplets on the side, which the rubber maid in the pmp never did.

and as for the perlite i mean, in the first container it was in, all the water washed all the fine stuff to the bottom, then when it was transfered to this container, all the fine stuff is now on top, because it didn't need new water, it was still wet.

i still need help on the best fruiter for newbies :smile:

roadkill, thankyou so much again man, i really do owe you. this guy was sending me pms and helping me.


also, do you guys think these pins will be ok?

i have a comment , that cat it appears , did now let the mycelium fully colonize , hence taking so long to pin seeing that the mycelium hasnt fully colonized that cake yet , looks like partially colonized cake got put in the light too soon and the middle of the cake might have just now matured and begun to produce mushrooms


--------------------

While i was in the grass, i picked them..

well my cat did let them fully colonize for 2 weeks before birthing them. what u see there is just what was rolled on them a couple days ago. soo 5 weeks now. 2 to colonize and 3 after birth. 1/2 pints.

think they will still produce even with all the trauma my cat has caused them?

you can get a sprayer anywhere...walmart, hardware store, drug store...etc.

it's a good sign that you have water droplets on the side of your fruiting chamber.
:smile:

you still haven't said if you have a humidity gauge...answer me damn it!~
lolzz

your gonna still get fruit.
no worries!~
