FAQ missing something?
    #768145 - 07/22/02 05:29 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hey shroomerites!

I was checkin the FAQs yet again today and i remembered something i wanted to ask a while ago. The FAQ has 2 main sections for basic PF growth "The PF Cake - Recipes through Inoculation" and "The PF Cake - Incubation through Birthing".

What about "The PF cake - Birthing through harvesting", i think it would gather some needed info into 1 place.

I have looked around the FAQs for pinning questions, fanning questions, more detailed abort info etc. and cant find it. Maybe i am just not good at looking up things....

I think we should put together "The PF cake - Birthing through harvesting" or is it already in the works?

Thanks
Fd

Since those things are not only PF tek specific, they are in the section Casing and general growing

Although there might be such a section in the future...

Could you compile a list of questions that would go in this section?

I know these are stated else ware in the FAQs but they would be good to have in the list.

What is this white fluff growing on my cake(referring to the new mycelium that newbs often mistake for a contam)?
What conditions are optimal for pin formation?
Can a PF cake become contaminated after birthing?
What do pridomina (sp)/pins look like?
How to tell when a pin aborts?
What is this black stuff growing on the cap of an abort (referring to rot)?
Why do pins abort?
Can you fan/mist too much?
When is a mushroom at its potency peak?
When is a mushroom ready to be spore printed?
How do i harvest a mushroom?
What do i do after a cake has flushed?
How long does it take in-between flushes?

That?s all I can think of now, someone else help me out here. I think having questions like these all arranged in 1 spot is a great idea.....

Good....although some of those questions are already in other sections, it might actually be a good idea to put them also in this new category..
I?m going to work on this, if you feel like you can provide good answers to those questions, please post them here or pm then to me. Thanks!

Also, how can I tell when a cake is spent? And what should I do with the old cakes? Compost them? Bury them outside? Grind them up, simmer, strain, and consume?


--------------------
Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
Yes, I've been eating them, for six or seven weeks now, haven't got sick once.

Another good thing to add would be, like the guy above me said what to do with a spent cake. Options could be something like: Dunk and cold shock for 24 hours to attemp another flush, try the Moe's oudoor tek **link to outdoor tek**, and how to prepaire a cake cranberry drink to trip.

If this section is made it would gather some good info into 1 place and would probably reduce the amount of questions that are asked on a daily basis.

Thanks for considering the idea Anno!

Hmm, let it be here today, I think here it might be the better place to put together some questions that should go into the faq...

Yes the suggestions forum would be the place you would automatically think this should go but it has alot to do with cultivation questions, answers etc so its better here...

I'll see if i can think of some more for ya Anno!

Another important question is something like "What is this blackish gooy stuff on the caps of my mushrooms?". I am reffering to a bacterial infection that newbies ask about at least twice a week. Also it should be stated that eating infected mushrooms may not be health....

Here's one that comes up alot: "What is this white fluffy stuff growing on my cake after birthing?". Its referring to the new fluffy mycelium that grows on cakes before they pin.

Well, here are the questions from above still without answers:

What is this black stuff growing on the cap of an abort (referring to rot)?
Why do pins abort?
Can you fan/mist too much?
What do i do after a cake has flushed?
How long does it take in-between flushes?

Do you want to provide FAQlike answers to them?
That would be a great help.

I don?t know all of the answers myself but ill answer what I can. For the answers to the rest ill PM roadkill and the other pro's to see if they know...

What is this black stuff growing on the cap of an abort? : When the cap of an abort begins to turn black it is rot beginning to take over the dead mushroom. The mushroom rots because it is no longer growing or being supported by the nutrients from the mycelia (sp).

Aborts that show a lot of black rot should be harvested from the cake/casing soon because the rot can introduce new contaminants to the cake or other fruit bodies.

Why do pins abort?: **I am just assuming here, I have no real evident of this** Why pins/mushrooms abort is not entirely known. It is most likely because the mycelium is using up the majority of its water/nutrient/energy to grow the other fruit bodies. The reason certain pins are chosen to abort in unknown.

Can you fan/mist too much? I know you can mist too much but I don?t know about fanning so i'm going to ask a few people.

What do I do after a cake has flushed?**Assuming this means after the first flush, not after the cake is spent** There are many things that you can do with a cake after its flush. You can use the Dunk Tek ( http://www.mycotopia.net/teks/dunktek.html ) and you can also cold shock it. These step are not necessary to initiate a new flush but they don?t do any damage so their is no reason not to.

How long does it take in-between flushes? The time between flushes can vary from a few factors- strain, pinning condition (temperature, humidity, air exchange, light), and weather the cake was cold shocked or not.

Generally it takes 4-10 days in-between flushes but again this can vary greatly.


That?s all I know, feel free to change anything if the info is wrong or not worded properly. I'll PM a few people about why pins abort and if you can fan/mist too much.

Again, if anyone can think of a few more questions or new answers than feel free to post them!
Fd

please don't post anymore untill you've been around longer. If shroom growing was idiot proof, then there would be alot of idiots with mushrooms, and nobody wants that. Your not an idiot are you?

You have accumulated 500+ posts in a few months. Please just listen for a while.

Man whats your problem, i answered all i could and the abort one may be wrong but i figure the rest are right.... What do you know that i dont? If there was somethign wrong with my answers why didnt you just correct me? I'm just trying to help make the FAQs a little bit more simple for the newbies.

"if you don't know the answer, read "the Mushroom Cultivator"."
Well if you refered me to a book i would assume you have read it. Why didnt you just help out a little bit and give the right answer?

Anyways i PM road about the abort question and the fanning question, havet got a responce yet.

Anno was there anything wrong with my answers?
