Decent pinset but 100% abhorts?
    #4747672 - 10/03/05 02:09 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I have some 50/50+ cased WBS in the fruiting chamber now that had a fairly weak first flush due to uneven casing colonization. After cropping, patching the divots and giving a good watering a pretty good pinset developed but now three days later nothing has progressed (as in all the pins look like abhorts). On top of that, much of the mycelium has taken on an unappealing greyish hue. It gets 3-4 air exchanges a day, humidity looks good and I don't see any signs of contams so I'm at a loss. Is it possible to get overlay after the fruiting cycle has been initiated (in which case I would deep scratch right?)? Any other thoughts? Sorry not to have a picture...camera is on the fritz.

You mean the casing or the ambient humidity? I think they're both ok. What is the gray discoloration though? That's what's worrying me the most.

more air exchange would be good. what's your setup like? Light schedule? humidity? temps? give us the 411 so we can hit you back... i don't know what to tell you without knowing how you're growing.

If you have overlay, I would scratch. If you see a greyish hue, you may have cobweb mold. If you don't regularly fan, that may be a problem too. You need to do some searches for pics of overlay and cobweb mold. Without pics of what you are talking about, nobody can really tell you what the problem is.

As a general rule of thumb, mist day one and day two post casing,
but after that, no more misting should be done due to the risk of damage. If it's been saturated, it will stay moist enough for the 1st flush, given humidity is kept at optimal levels 90 -95 + % RH and temps around 75-80 F.

Thanks for the advice everyone. It's just strange since the conditions haven't changed really and all of a sudden, the second flush just petered out. Cobweb this early would be a real let down. I'll try to get a pic up tomorrow sometime.

But for casings you want the RH a tad lower.



But not during pinning then 90-95% is perfect.

i ahve experienced cobweb... i never would have noticed the difference between that and mycellium?!?!?! my monkey sprays his casings with H2O2, untill they start to pin. (even then, he won't stop till they get a bit taller) (h2o2 kills cobweb)

i use diluted hydrogen peroxide all the time when i mist and yes it kills cobweb mold like you wouldnt believe but cobweb mold is super fast it will colonize a casing in just a matter of a few days so that is how i can tell if i got cobweb or not ( and it is grey and not white btw)

is cobweb mold dangerous [Re: xaxphaanes]
    #4815255 - 10/17/05 10:33 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i mean, are there spidermolds climbing around on the cobweb mold?
Is it poisonous? Can it kill me? Is hydrogen peroxide like as in bleach yo and also doesn't that do some chemical anti-organic activity with the mushy mycelium?
