A lot of excitment, and just a little bang
    #4477806 - 07/31/05 06:42 PM (12 years, 21 days ago)

Ok, I've been floating around these forums and others for quite a while trying to learn every damn thing I can.  So I went ahead and decided to start a little shroomery of my own, and to the surprise of many, everything has gone great thus far.  However, now that my jars have been fully colonized and birthed I've hit a speed bump.  This being my first time to grow, I figure I'd consult those who are in the know.  After birthing my cakes, it took only a day or so to start seein wee mushrooms.  Only one or two on a cake, but nonetheless, exciting.  Until all of a sudden they just stopped growing!  I am using perlite in the bottom of a large Tupperware container, kept in the mid-70s, fanning it about 4 to 5 times a day.  No contamination that I see so far.  It's just really puzzling why they grow for 2 days and that's it.  They just stop.  Any opinions?  Thanks! :thanx:

Oh, and it might help to know that the cakes have been birthed for about a week. I've got an el cheapo humidity gauge in there, and it says that it's at 80, but judging my to condensation on the sides and top of the tupperware, it just might be closer to 85, 90.

As long as they're getting a little light, just wait. I'm sure they will eventually come out to play.. I wish you the best of luck..

did you dunk/roll your cake? They could be a little dried out if you didnt.

I went ahead and dunked one of them last night. i thought they might be a little dry and I wanted to do just one to see what happens. If there is one thing I've learned around here is that experimentation isn't a bad thing. Being that I've dunked one, I should/could see results in a few days. If I see an improvement, then I'll dunk the others.

Impulse: I am fanning every 5 to 6 hours, but when I work, they go about 10 w/o being fanned. They are sitting right under a window, facing south, so they get some indirect sunlight.

Coda mentioned "dunk/roll." I am familiar with dunking, but I've never heard of "roll." I'll research it.

yah, good thing to do is get some verm wet to capacity and put it on top of the cake as well as the bottom.  Helps keep moisture all around the cake.  It will help your cakes look like this :smile:
