sickly shrooms, why???
    #482398 - 12/06/01 08:06 PM (22 years, 2 months ago)

i had some wheat that was colonizing in its terrarium, on top of some perlite, i was going to case it but it started growing shrooms before it finished colonizing. the shrooms are really thin, flimsy, with inky black caps that fall apart easily. what could be the causes of this?

i'm planning on casing tonight or tomorrow now, because of this, even though the straw isn't completely colonized. but i'm worried that the shrooms that grow from the casing will be the same way...

now i'm just shooting from the hip, but it could be the glucose in the wheat that is causing this pre-mature pinning. the spore could have colonized on the glucose which has no real nutrients to speak of, which would result in flimsy shrooms. Use rye berries next time. However, I could be wrong.

i used rye grain to spawn the wheat. hmm. this is my first time using straw as a substrate and, even though it didn't work out right so far, i'm reluctant to try rye berries or go back to cakes because they did grow pretty fast, wheat lends itself easily to bulk growing, and i have seen some *awesome* yields grown directly off of wheat straw..

so i would like to stick with wheat if i can figure out whats going wrong... maybe its humidity? air exchange? i tried the shrooms too, i got nothing from them.. didn't get sick though, so i guess that's good. :)
