ahborts, why?
    #693342 - 06/21/02 10:29 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

aborts...

whats the reason for ahborts!! The strain is EQ and PF growing technique. rH is at 95%+ and fanning 1-2 times a day.

What is causing the ahborts? Cakes pin and then only one will fully mature and the rest abhort!!!

The reason is because shit happens...
Just pick the aborts, discard the cap, keep the little stem (it's good).
Very often a large shroom will grow in it's place.

Aborts happen...It's a fact of (shroom) life. If you're getting all aborts, somethings wrong.Just for the record: The word abort does not have an `h`. (abhor? who could hate an abort?)There seems to be much confusion about the word, because the word abort is a verb. Technically, those little babies are abortions. But who wants to eat an abortion? So, the shroom community has changed the verb `abort` to a noun.Ahhh! The beauty of the Englsh language...it changes and evolves.

if I am doing everything right... why is it that other people's cakes, don't have as many aborts as mine?

I see cakes in which almost all pins go to full maturity... But for my cakes, I will only get 1-3 that go to full maturity and like 10-20 ahborts?

I am also growing EQs with BRF cakes, and I get these huge pinsets....one or two shrooms will make it to maturity and the rest will abhort. Like you, I have near perfect conditions...it may just be the way this strain behaves with this style substrate. Ive had better results when casing, usually getting 4 or 5 fruits, but still, from a large pinset I will get mostly abhorts. The trip from the EQs is definately worth it, they are very potent.

You are getting aborts because you're doing something wrong. Aborts do happen, but most growers are not happy to get them. I try not to have any aborts. I feel its a waste of time for me to just "let them happen. Especially in large numbers.

Ways to reduce the numbers of aborts:

1) Make sure you are fanning enough. Excessive C02 levels greatly effect the way the mushroom forms into an adult.

2)Your humidity is too high.

3) There is not enough fresh air, once again more fanning...(BUT NOT TOO MUCH!!

4) The strain could be faulty, but probably not the problem.

5) The substrate/casing is too dry.

Review your methods. Make sure your fresh air and moisture content is more frequently checked. Dont just let your aborts happen, do something about it. Its not a good way to think, that they just happen on their own..

the water content is pretty good I think. cakes are dunked after each flush for 8-16 hours.

I don't think my strain is faulty, i got a print from a very big shroom from a set of cakes before

if the terrium smells a little, not a bad odor, could that cause problems?

oh yeah, rH is atleast 95% + (from my hygrometer)

fanning is about 1-3 times a day (usually, twice a day)

hmmm.. weird.
Sounds like things would be OK. Only thing I would think of is lack of air exchange. Maybe cut some 1inch holes and fill with polyfill if ya want mroe gas exchange while your gone at work.

The PF Tek says that the abhorts are more powerful than the normal mushrooms. So, if abhorts let you trip harder, what's the problem with them?

'Cause they're black and rotten, so If you WANT to throw up when your trip is just coming up, then go ahead and eat the tiny black rotten little suckers!
