help needed for bigger flushes
    #579887 - 03/15/02 06:52 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I've got 8 cakes in a terrarium, they sprout shrooms, but not very many, and they're not all that big, what can you do to help them grow faster and get more of them growing?

B,
What strain are you growing?
What is your humidity level?
Are you fanning?
Are you using "cakes"?

I've got 2 PR, 3 Hawaiian, and 3 B+ cakes; I fan twice a day, and it stays quite humid from me misting when it needs it.

I'm not sure what you used for your substrate, but the first clue that came to me is your shrooms being 1...small 2...low quanity.....I'd be willing to bet your cakes are drying out to fast. Next time you mix your substrate give it alittle more water. Sometimes if not most of the time, you can't be extremly acurate on the amout of heat/pressure we use in the sterilization process, no matter if you have a gauage or not.
GoodLuck!
