Conor, while the pin set is good, the caps are under-developed. You need to fan out your terrarium more frequently or start using a bubbler or something. Otherwise, the caps will fail to develop.

Definately PF. My PF's always had small caps until they matured. Never got as many from this strain as you though Good Work.

The setup is simple. There are 2 more terranium's also filled and fruiting as well, but I only took pictures of this one.

The cakes are in a 10 gallon tank. For humidity and temperature I placed a canning jar(1 pint) inside and filled it 3/4 with water and used a small fish tank heater($20) to heat the water. The fish tank heater will keep a constant temperature to what you set it at. Also I have a fish tank cover and light combo used to seal and give light to the terranium 12 hours a day. This was done during pinning stages.

I actually ordered 2 spore syringes from PF, but only received one with no label on it.

Thanks for the advise ShroomGod, I will be sure to do that.

Update:
The mushrooms are growing out of control now!
I've picked about 20 mature ones already and they just keep popping up. I will take more pictures as they progress.
Im so excited :wink:

I'm surprised the fish-tank heater is providing enough moisture. Do you have a hygrometer in there, and what does it read?

I'm worried that humidity might be overly hurt be more-needed fanning. But if it doesn't, cool man. Still nice though.

Conor, I know it will cost you a few buck, but it might double your production. I'd recommend you go down and buy a small aqarium pump. Put an airstone on the end and put it in the jar with the heater. The bubbles will rise in the water and humidify and keep the air fresh in there.

I too am afraid if you fan it out, you might dry it out. That's why the bubbler is so good. Man, if you lived nearby, I'd give you a bubbler. I got lots of spare. Going to the fair in San Fran?

I would love to go to the fair in San Fran, but I live across country(NH).

Thanks for the bubbler offer though!

I think I might invest a little more and do that, thanks for the tip.

Gaget:

If I remember correctly, that picture shows growth around 20 days. They took a while to colonize.
