I have several questions, instead of posting different threads I'll just post one...
    #4429239 - 07/20/05 06:22 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

1.  well first off, i dont have as much time as i thought i was going to have to finish my grow.  so, the cakes that will soon be fully colonized  i will need to save for a little over a month until i can case them. 
my first question then being - where would be the best place to store them until the time comes?  i heard they'd be fine in the fridge, should i put them in a box and keep them in there?  or should i just keep them in the incubator which is running at a constant 82 degrees.

2. I harvested a few mushrooms from one of my cakes that i've got, and i was wondering if i should patch it up somehow or put a little h202 on that spot?  i gently took the mushrooms off, i did it properly, i'm just wondering if i should patch the spot i took it off at?

- also, when the cake is fully finished with the first flush, i'm going to dunk again of course, but would it also be beneficial to roll it again?

i'm also having some trouble finding the aborts, they're growing a bit down at the bottom of the cake.  that's something i need to figure out myself though

3. on one of the mushrooms the veil had completely come off, i know you're supposed to pick before or right after it rips, but it went to long which is fine, it's just a small one.  but the veil looks exactly like a spore print.  wouldn't i be able to scrape the fresh veil with a knife and get spores from it?  or do the spores come directly from inside the gills?

4. once the cakes begins pinning should i cease misting completely, or should i continue misting the cake once or twice a day.  i've been misting the others which haven't pinned yet and thought it might not be wise to mist ones which are pinning, or to at least not mist as much...


<> there seems there were other things i was questioning, i'm drawing a blank though.  thx in advance for any replies  :stoned:

#3- u should just chop off the cap of the mushroom and make yourself a print. read it up on the site

#4- U talkin about cakes or casings? If its cakes u need to have the environment to be humid at all times, not spraying the cakes directly tho. If its casings I have heard both sides of this. Some say that misting the pins damage them, while other say that if the mist is very fine it wont hurt em.

Good Luck

#3 - yea i know about making prints, i was just wondering if you'd be able to get spores from the veil that breaks off.

#4 - i'm doing a few cakes currently. it's humid conditions, ideal, its fine. jw if misting will disturb the pinset - like you said, it might damage the fruits.

Ya i edited my post, i meant to add that misting the cakes directly isnt a good idea. Mist the walls of the terranium, for humidity. Dont spray the cakes directly.

1. Frig...just make sure the jars are sealed...and they will be fine.

2. No need.

3. If the cap is flattened out...
get a small container...and put a layer of alum foil down on the inside.
wipe the alum foil with some alcohol...close the lid slightly...let it dry.
drop the cap onto the alum foil...put the lid on slightly.
12 hours later you have a nice darkspore print.

4. I always mist my cakes...and haven't had problems from light misting.
