Brief vacation fuck up growing?
    #706116 - 06/27/02 06:37 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I have 11 jars that are very close to 100% colonized. I will be gone 1-3 days while they are in the growing phrase. This is my first time growing and I'm going to use the poor man's terranium(I know it's not the best setup, but that's what I have to work with). From reading numerous threads, faqs, etc. I know it's recommended to fan them 2-3times a day and they need indirect sunlight(I've heard some say a few minutes a day, others few hours). Anyways, if I leave them be for a few days, will the lack of air exchange damage/destroy the shrooms? BTW, I plan on using a 1" layer of perlite and keeping them in a 72-78degree environment.Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Since you are going the poor man route.....I'd wait til you get back to birth them.
they will be fine waiting for your return.

being in a smaller fruiting chamber like that will need 2 to 3 fannings a day for sure.

I have done several poor man 2 liter bottles and other self made small fruiting containers.....and they will suffer badly if you don't fan them...IME

I had 20 large Whip Cream containers with clear plastic candy containers from Costco for domes.....these worked the best.

Road is right, take his advice and wait to birth them. its better to wait a week after they are completly white any ways.

Thanks for the advice, however the problem remains because I'll most likely be gone July 11-13. I innoculated the jars on June 15 and I didn't think it'd be healthy to get them in the jars for close to a month. Sorry for not specifying the dates in the earlier post, additional help/advice would be great.

This is not even a problem...just dont birth them till you get back....keep them in the dark...end of problem...its not gonna hurt anything...its better to leave them in longer than to take them out early or not be there to take care of them.

Unless you have a shroom-sitter, wait. Another option...supposedly you can store fully colonized cakes in the fridge until it's convenient to birth. By July 11 your cakes should be colonized. Why not cold shock them while you're gone and birth when you get home?
