FP mushroom kit problems
    #4705472 - 09/24/05 03:56 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)


I ordered a nameko kit from FP around early July, and it refuses to fruit.

It had a thick red rind on the surface of the block when it arrived, and I was told to open the bag when I called FP. Weeks later with regular misting, the block had not changed at all. Eventually, there was a spot of black mold growing on the surface of the outer rind.

I read in GGMM that the surface should be disturbed to expose living mycelium should the block fail to fruit. I removed the rind, and it was hard and brittle. Almost a week later, there's still no sign of any goop.

Is there anything I can do to make this fruit?

Also, I currently have a maitake patch that is fruiting, but one side of the mushroom looks to be aborted, and it is cracking open. Should I be worried about this?

If all else fails, maybe you can bury it half way down outdoors. Or ask FP for a replacement, I think it sounds a bit fishy that the rind was hard and brittle.

There is a very nice growlog here:
Maybe you can get some ideas from it.
