Slow maturation time AHHH HELP.
    #4317510 - 06/20/05 05:18 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Is there something wrong with my friends babies? My friend has 3 casings that are 1qt popcorn each, cased with 60/40 coir/verm. It took them about a week to pin, another 4 days to have a solid pinset and now they have been growing very slowly for about 3 days. When my friend did pf cakes he could practically see the mushies growing, they sprouted and went to maturity from pinset in hardly any time at all, but despite a healthy pinset his babies seem to be growing slowly this time. My friend is aware that popcorn is not known for the most prolific flushes, but would this have anything to do with maturation? Also, my friend used a fairly thin casing layer (about A little over 1/4") would this effect it?

its the sub, popcorn is not a good thing to case, but it is good to use as spawn like wbs it lacks what shrooms need alot of, and that is moisture!!!!!!

I know popcorn isn't the best thing to case, i've never heard because of water content though. When preparing popcorn, you should probably be adding about as much water to it as you would to rye grain or other substrates , I think its the nutritional content of popcorn that makes it a less than ideal medium to fruit off of. Anyways, I have always heard that popcorn produces poor yields, not slow flushes so i'm guessing its not the substrate... but you never know.
