Need Advice with Mushroom Kit(stalled growth and flushes)
    #4345532 - 06/28/05 02:30 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

My girlfriend and I have this grow kit we bought at a local head shop. The kit has produced very well thus far, but we are now having some questions about growth (where flush intervals and chamber conditions are concerned).

^^^The kit as of now^^^


^^^Closer view^^^

We have recieved about 45 mushrooms(most were good size) over 2.5 weeks. Our last harvest of 10 was 3 days ago. We don't have any explosive growth occurring right now but there are quite a few itty-bitty pins. Problem is(maybe, maybe not), is that most of these have existed for at least 1.5-2 weeks. Conditions have stayed between between 80 and 86 degrees with a good amount of humidity inside during the entire duration of growth. The outside of the chamber stays right about 40 to 45%.




^^^Few shots of the pins^^^


My big questions are that if this is just a pause between flushes or something else(like the end), and if it is normal for some to pin upward, and then stay at about 1 cm height with some slight shrinking. The pins have all taken on a silvery blue appearance compared to the previous ones that were all ivory with reddish-brown caps.
If this is just the way it is, and there is no problem, just let me know so I can chill. If there may be a problem with the kit, any remedies or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, there is still plenty of cake left with a good bit of uncolonized compost on the bottom.

Thanks for any help I may recieve.

Have you been fanning them? or getting air exchange some other way. 80-86 is colonisation temps, lower the temp to 75 for fruiting. It is not normal for them to stop when 1cm high. Pick off the small ones before they rot.
You can try dunking the cake in water, but it is 2.5weeks old and may be spent.
I would suggest taking a spore print or cloning one of the shrooms.

Thanks for the advice. We discovered that humidity and heat was definintly the problem so we picked off the rotted growth and dunked the cake. Already we have new pins growing and its only been a few hours. Thanks again.

Its very normal...those pins were there from the last flush, not all pins from a flush make it to mature mushrooms, some abort, heads turn black and blue and they stop growing. Pick all little pins when you harvest, they are part of the flush your harvesting. New pins will develop if nutes arent spent.
