    #556275 - 02/19/02 03:14 PM (15 years, 10 days ago)

Is this the right stuff? How do i initiate pinning so not to get overlay?
Everthing is different today, some green contams, and the white stuff seems to be disappearing, whats wrong now?

Also i have one single cake fruiting another way in a soda bottle. Take a look and see what you think. Will it work? Its now day six and still no shrooms, i think i see pinning starting to occure, or am i mistaken?

The very small casing on the cake is just vermiculite

However in the setup with the casings it is a 2 pt peat, 2 part vermic, 1 pt calcisand,1 pt cow manure

there both at 75 degrees (so not to get overlay on the casing)
via/ water incubators converted grow chamber
humidity is unknown because of inefficiet RH gauge but it is high i think because there is visible water droplets
air exchange is three times daily

in the encloser surrounding the casing there is a stack of devices from the bottom up: hepa filter, first bin with fish tank heater and submersible pump,2nd bin with a layer of perlite with drip shields and widow cut in lid, light placed on top


Any suggestions would be greatly helpful and appricated!

there is a small plastic cup w/ vemiculite surounding the cake on the bottom so the cak does not dry out. Is it wrong to use the vermiculite?

6 days isnt too long, and it looks as though primordia are forming...although dont quote me on that cause i cant see very well. Id only be worried if 6-7 more days passed and still no sign of pinning.

That doesnt look like anything compared to what Im seeing with my casing, I might almost say thats not right, but Im very new at this myself. If your getting green contamination then the casing wasnt sterilized enough or somewhere along the line it came in contact with some unwanted bacterial room mates. Be as clean as you can, dust masks, lysol, alcohol.
