from pins to mushrooms in 5 days??
    #754820 - 07/17/02 10:49 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

My cakes started pinning 5 days ago, it started with about 5 nice lookin' pins, and thery're definatley not mature mushrooms yet. I think something maybe stunting thier growth. They're not growing quickly at all. On average they get about 8 hours of light a day, and they temp stays between 73 and 78 degres. They humidity is always high 95% or above. The only thing that I can think of is that when the mist is pumped into the terrium from the ultrasonic humidifier it engulfs the entire terrium with dense mist then is shut off via a humidistat that is in the terrium, the fog goes away and then the humidifier is turned back on again. I know it isn't light I know it isn't Co2 and I know it isn't humidity so this is the only thing that I can think of. I am being patient though I just wanted to know from someone who would know if I should worry or not. Some pins seem to not even grow at all. Most of them after 5 days still pretty much look like pins but they look pretty healthy I mean they're growing a little a very little. What should I do or should I do nothing? Is there anyway to tell if they're getting not enough humidity? Thank you all!

I love growin' shitake mushrooms!

try raising your temps a little higher. like around 80degrees. also are you fanning at all? just a thought. hope this helps.

the truth and reason for the above post has been diminished by its very beginning..holding no facts,, but squeezing every bit of fiction...

how 'bout a hug??...

You don't need the humidity so high now. They might get waterlogged, stop growing altogether and rot. Also, they start out slow and speed up as they get bigger. Some of those are likely aborts and will not grow anyways.
