Will these things EVER MATURE?!!!?
    #579617 - 03/15/02 01:07 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

My cakes flushed last month, yet the shrooms still have not matured....
How do I get things growing faster?
Do my terrariums need more air? More heat?

The spore race is psilocybe cubensis, PES Amazonian strain.
The type of cakes I'm using are finch seed mixed with vermiculite.
The temp. inside the terrariums are 74 degrees.
I don't know the relative humidity, but I'm guessing that it's a little too high since some of the stems are furry...
My terrariums are made of translucent purple plastic, and rest in the conner of a bright room -- sunny durring the day, well lit at night.
I fan them 2--3x a day, though occasionally I'll be away 3 days at a time.
The mushrooms sprouted a month ago, but their caps have yet to open, nor are they growing much larger.
I'm at a loss on what to do?!

mushrooms grow fast and reach maturity very quickly. they've most likely aborted.

what causes aborts? shocks or some sorts?
can they abort at ANY stage? or do they generally abort when they're small (like 1")
or are abots purely gentic? or what

i noticed one time that not all aborts are visiably recognizable, they just stopped growing at about 3 inches tall, perfect in every aspect, just not mature, they didn't get dark or fall or rot or anything, i let them go for around 10 days looking to get a print but they did nothing, all my conditions were good too, it may have been because they were low on nutrients or something, lil' bastards are high maintenance, fan me, spray me, turn my light on, eat me....
