I thought it was a little low also...maybe 2nd flush will be a little better.

Thanks for responding !

Well, I wouldn't know if it was average or not.  Seeing as how I haven't grown.

But, that is still looking very good.

Nice job :smile:.

don't really expect much more from a second flush. although it could be possible. ime that is not the case though.
are you dunking and rolling?
peace

I coldshocked and dunked them for 20 hours, but didn't have any more vermiculite to roll. I did dunk and roll for the 2nd flush...and seem to have a few more pins than on the 1st flush:

cool, pic of 1st or 2nd flush?
here is something i noticed from your pic: the sides allow light to penetrate thus not letting the shrooms know which way is up. cover the sides at least over the height of the cakes a little to allow no light into the bottom.
this will make your shrooms go up to the light and not just go all over.

Does the size of the fruiting chamber have any factor on the size of the shrooms ?

the 1st photo is the results of the 1st flush and the 2nd photo is the new flush now emerging.

I have the sides of the chamber taped with masking tape...I thought that would help them grow up to the light above...but they are still all over the place !

no not the size of the fc but rather the size and depth of the substrate. you really can't expect that big of fruits from brf cakes. although there have been some shown here that are large, it is not typical.
bigger shrooms will come from casings and bulk substrates with a good depth and plenty of available nutes. poo has been giving me some very nice ones lately.
peace

I tried WBS with 4 jars and had no luck...they all did well and then stopped at about 75%.

I know BRF is not the best way to grow...but I know I'll be at least somewhat successful using it !

I had problems with stalling WBS too, and realized from asking some others... they were drying out.

Now I make sure to keep plenty of water- but not too much- in my jars before PC'ing. Sor far I've had better success.
