A few fruiting ?'s
    #4582442 - 08/26/05 01:35 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

1 After harvesting, how much should I mist my casings? I did about 6 full pumps from a misting bottle, from about 12" away, on each casing, this first time.
2 Why are my flushes so small? This first one I harvested about a dozen small mushrooms. My substrate is 1" thick + 1/4" casing.
3 Is 85% Humidity too low?
4 Should I be running my aquarium pump more than 6 hours per day? I don't fan. It pumps air into two bubble stones, each in the bottom of a tub of perlite and water, and the tubs sit at the back of my 40 gallon tank.
5 Is lighting that important? I have just been leaving a 40 watt soft white light on in the bathroom. Do I need to buy a timer and a Grow-Lux bulb?

1. till the casing glistens..you dont want it saturated
2.could be your humidity, could be that you not fanning,or your  substrate's not that thick (the thicker your substrate the more flushes and the bigger shrooms you get.
3. yes i would get the humidity up to at least 90% or more wouldnt hurt some people say you dont need alot of humidity with casings but all seen people say thay had much success with casing's at 99% humidity
4. i would say your fine on that could maybe even let it go longer but i dont know
5. lighting is not real important. as far as how thay get it. but most people here prefer 12 on 12 off with florressents.

hope that helps
good luck :smile:

I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

1. you could dunk your casing that might help, its like dunking your pf jars just fill your casing container up with water and cover and put in fridge overnight then drain..

2. how big of a pan do you have it in.. you want around 2" of grain in your casing, atleast thats when ive gotten my best results, and your casing layer should be good you want it 1/4 the thickness of your spawn layer

3. i would say 85-95% is what i try to get.. when im fruiting..

4. do you have just a regular aquarim hood on your tank or did you make up a new one for growing?? i would say to fan it.. but thats me, not sure if the air stones going would create enough air exchange, do your mushrooms get fuzy on the stems? if so i would fan.

5. mushrooms are not plants.. so a grow light is not necesary as long as they get light.. if your using a aquarim hood just put the light on the hood on a timer..not to sure if the light cycle plays an important roll or not.. but you can go to wal-mart and buy a timer for like 3-5$..

well theres my opions on your questions.. l8r

1. You got
2. Agreed, read my pinning strategy to optimize your pin count.
3. 99% is too high and will totally inhibit transpiration which is what really helps pins proliferate. 90-95% for casings works great and allows for more fresh air exchanges.
4. Fanning is most important during the pinning process, why? Because pins develop in the humid pockets of the casings surface this also happens to be the place CO2 settles. Pumping air into the FC will not disturb these pockets,see where this is going? :wink:
5. Ah not quite, light is very important especially during the pinning stage. Not only duration but intensity, now we're not talking HID intensities, 20-40 watts above the FC's will be perfect and 12-16hrs. works the best during pinning, 12/12 during fruiting. IME 12/12 gets you to harvest the quickest and keeps your fruits standing tall which has benefits in itself. You can certainly get by with less light duration if thats not convenient. Shrooms grow the most during the dark cycle FYI.
