what the hell am I doing wrong?
    #740567 - 07/11/02 11:29 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

okay I know all you people that actually can grow mushrooms are sick of these posts, but damn it sucks! I mean the jare where colonized perfectly not a spot of contam. on any of them!! I put them in the terrium about 10 days ago and nothing. On one I think I see knots but that about it, the others are flat and lifeless. Okay my setup:

I have a styrfoam terrium with an ultrasonic setup. I know the humidity if very high, at least 95% and the temp is kept between 75 and 78 degrees. I also have a seperate humidistat which is inside the terrium hookup up to the humidifier. The mist fills the terrium with dense mist and then turns off. The mist depletes and then the humidifier is turned on again. There is no moisture forming on the cakes, they just will not pin! I've read uncountable posts and it looks like I am doing everything right but i guess not, and yes there is plenty of light, and I fan at least 2 times a day. I make sure all of the Co2 is gone. Please help.

I love growin shitake mushrooms!!

Just be patient my friend. They will come. Perhaps you might want to look into cold shocking. What strand are you using? You might want to take an ice pack and throw it into your terrarium. That would drop the temp and hopefully force some pinning.

Patience is the key. A few of my cakes never did anything until after 15-20 days then they blew up. Just keep doing what you are doing, good things will come.
