Falling Mushrooms?
    #650908 - 05/29/02 11:02 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

My friend is having some issues with mushrooms falling off cakes and cakes tipping over.

Recently EQ and b+ have been making some big sized mushrooms. Some of the real tall ones (8 inches or so) have been falling off the cakes completly or only staying partially connected by a strand or somthing. This kinda sucks cuz they will lay in the perlite and suck up water. Some times its not even the big ones that fall off. What makes mushrooms stick to the cake? Is it a strain to strain thing??? TC seams to hold on a lot more tenaciosly then the EQ and b+ do?

He has also had isssues with b+ thinken its cute to make all the mushies clump on one side. And the whole cake tips over which is a pain. Perlite sticks the fruits and cakes...............

Anyone got any ideas to combat this kind of stuff?

Start casing baraka!

Well as you probably know that some strains are more attached into the mycial network than others. EQ's and B+ get big, and if you're dunking and adding that extra water they are going to be a lot bigger.

Once I had this problem, and I took some tooth picks and stuck them in the sides and propped them up. As for them falling off the cake completely I have never had that problem

See if anyone else can help...

Hehehe yeah he should case. He started out trying to case and had poor results with contams. GOt the hang of cakes and just been doin cakes for a long time. I guess he should try casings again, even though he got so mad at them swore to never use again

++ Baraka.
friend had the same problem with CASINGS.
Wish I had a pic, but all his shrooms fell over onto the casing layer, where they attached themselves to the nutriets in the casing layer, and got even larger. when picked it was evident that they were only connected by 2-6 thick stands of mycellium at the base.. no effort to tear them up. most that fell over weighed in at 50grams wet, others as high as 71 and 73 grams wet. HUUUUGGGEEE!

whats with these falling logs?
