Dwarf shrooms
    #557465 - 02/20/02 12:44 PM (22 years, 4 months ago)

This is my first attempt at growing mushroom. I have some cubensis on rye and also some Panaeolus cyanescens on dung. I waited for the substrate to be fully colonized then cased (compost for the p. cyan and coconut fiber for the cubensis). I droped the temperature and introduced light.
The cyans gave me a small first flush of 15 quite big shrooms (in a 3 x 5 inches box). Approx. 60 pins are now showing up but not really growing, though some seem to mature.
Same problem with the cubensis. There are approximatively 150 pins wich do not grow.
It is now more than a week the pins formed and they do not really grow.
What is the problem ? What should I do ?

Need more info, as in temps and humidity...They are obviously aborting.

Problems associated with abortion:
Insufficient nutrient base, excessive co2 levels, humidity too high, insufficent fresh air, or excessive loss of moisture from casing.

Temperature is approx. 72 F and relative humidity approx. 90%. Fresh air is introduced by a fishtank bubblier. There are also some holes on the top of the growing chamber.
The strange thing is that some seem to mature (veil rupture) but are very small (1 inch).
The other strange thing is that some p. cyan grew well in the same conditions.

I did not wait any longer to case them when the substrate was fully colonized. Did I made a mistake ?

I definitely can say they are maturing, even if they remain small. Veil rupture and cap expansion are obvious. I harvested some of them. The smallers are 0.5 cm and the biggers are about 5 cm (a little less than two inches). The biggers are the last to have grown.
I put a tablespoon of malt extract to the rye (200gr) to obtain a faster mycellial growth. Is it possible that due to the presence of that readily avaible sugar a lot of pins grew (10 per square inch) and that they soon ran out of it, and so the growth of these numerous pins could not be supported by the sugar provided by the rye grains.
I'm sorry, my english isn't perfect.
Thanks for helping me.
