Growing Question
    #628969 - 05/13/02 11:50 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Right now im on my second grow. My first grow was some eq's and hawaiins cased with coco-coir/oystershell. The eq casing had 3 1/2 pint jars, and then I had 2 smaller casings for the hawaiins that had 2 1/2 pint jars in each casing. Well, the eq casing caught green mold during the second flush so I threw it outside and the hawaiin casings were still doing alright. They were producing shrooms, but they were reall little. I think it was only b/c I used 2 1/2 pint jars for the casing. Well, I then had to take out the hawaiins b/c i needed the room for my new kah samui casing. What I did with the 2 hawaiin casings was, emptied both out into this big ass bowl, I then filled the bowl up full of water so that the coco coir could get some more moisture b/c it was pretty dry. After I let it soak for a while, I then drained out all the water. After that I had an extra 9x13 pan, so I just dumped everything into that 9x13 pan and covered it with some peat moss that I had never used. I then just stuck the casing on top of a shelf in my grow room, but not in no fruiting chamber or anything. Just out in the middle of the room by the window so it could get some sunlight. After a couple of days they had myclieum(sp?) that was really really fluffy start eating away at the top layer. Now yesterday I noticed that there was a pin that was forming. Well today, it is still growing and its like 1/2 inch long but pretty fat, and I noticed that they had a couple other little pins starting to grow from the sides of the casing where it is pulling away from the pan. My question is this, how come they are growing without the humidty having to be right and all. I checked the humidty in my room and its like around 40-50 percent. Anyone know about this? Can you grow shrooms without having to put them in a fruiting chamber and worry about the humidity? Just wondering. Also I have this kah samui that is mutated and has two caps that are connected but the body is one big fat stalk. If I were to take prints from this shroom, would they all be mutated? ......thanks.....killa

No, you should atleast stick them into a rubbermaid container with mistings. This way you'll yeild a lot more than you will at 40-50% humidity. Usually the casing layer can provide a good mycoclimate but in low humidity areas it will dry out very quickly.

No, they will not all be mutated.
