White small fuzz dots....*PIC NOW AVAIB*
    #4666983 - 09/15/05 09:54 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

All my cakes are fully colonized and have been in the frutining chamber for 3 days now. Fully misted and getting light and darkness. 1 is starting to get these little random circular dots of white fuzz every where. Is this something to be worried about or is the mushroom growing outwards?

Help.
Ill have pics later if needed

well, pics are very key, but it sounds like it may be starting to knott, or it is the result of high levels of humidity. Can't really tell w/out pics.

knotting is not bad...it happens right b4 mushies start growing.

but in your pic, I can't really tell what that is. It could be mycelium growing because of High RH levels, or it even could be cobweb mold.

how is your Fesh air exchange?

If it is cobweb, you will be able to tell because it grows very quickly and will consume your whole cake in a coule of days. Although cobweb is a more of an offwhite/greysish color...so I'm going to say that is mycelium for now.

If you want to be safe, you can mist your cake with a mix of h20 and h202, and make sure you keep your air exchanges up. And keep an eye on that "dot" that appears green in the center of your cake.

That's Vegative growth..

How are your conditions now?...Sounds like not enough light probably...

That and I think you should have let it colonize a bit longer...Mycelium looks like it's just forming on the outside of the cake...

Should be fine but I wouldn't expect a great pin-set :P

i dunked all my perlite in water then sifted it out.
then placed it in the terr.
then i air out 2x a day, when i air out i also mist with a misting gun.
leave in the daylight for about 6 hours then they go into dark for about 10 hours. then reoccurance of 6hr light again.


i hope it is just knotting.


any suggestions guys?

well, it isn't knotting yet. (knotting looks like bumps/balls on the cake).

Your light sounds fine, mushies do not need a ton of light, 6 hours a day should be fine....you may want to try an aquarium light next time though. You don't want it in direct sunlight either.

I would increase your fresh air exchange. Adding a fishtank bubbler to your terrarium will help when you are gone at work.
