First time grower
    #553204 - 02/16/02 12:03 AM (22 years, 2 months ago)

ok im growing for the first time and just wanted a few tips if there are any for my questions. I Used the PF tek on the fanaticus page and my jar (i only made 1 for the first time to learn) is pretty much fully colonized.

When the fruiting begins can i increase the number of flushes and amount of fruit i get by controlling the surroundings? My room is around 70 degrees F almost all the time. I am going to put the cake in a semi-airtight container with high humidity.

Does it matter if the cake is in a dark place while fruiting or is a place with good light better? Also i plan on using a rubbermaid container approximately 24"X24"X18" should i put a layer of Vermiculite/Perlite on the bottom? will this release water vapor into the air as good as having a puddle or cup of water?

Any input is appreciated. No Flames Please

I dig your name. Out here me call them SOB's (har dee har har)

Use straight perlite. Not pelite\verm

If you want more, case. Other than that, sunlight or daylight flourecents might help get a few more shrooms to go...your temp is pretty good, a couple degrees higher is even better...make sure to fan once or twice a day...
