What exactly is happening here? *pic*
    #790581 - 08/01/02 01:11 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)



A few questions (from a first time grower)....
1. Why would that one mushroom be so big and the rest so much smaller?
2. See the blue on some of the caps? Is that mold? There is also some white fuzzy growth on some too, cant really see it tho.
3. IF it is mold, should I trash the shrooms or would they still be ok to eat?
4. There was a patch of shrooms on the left hand cake (in the upper center) that got engulfed in either Mycelium or Cobwed mold..... Can you see anything wierd happining there?

lol sorry for all the newbie questions, I just have no idea if I?m really doing this right, or what I did wrong if anything.

1. shit happens
2,3.cant see in the pic. so it probably is the shroom starting to abort. it will turn taker and not grow any further. if that is the case it is okay to eat. if it turns out to be otherwise, i.e. mold throw out.
4. since you said that some of the other shrooms are getting "white stuff" on them also, id conclude that it is mycelium and it means you should be fanning more often and you could drop the humidity just a pinch.

The fact that you keep your shoes by your terrarium is not good..that's just begging for contams to get in there and destroy your grow.

I keep my terrarium airtight, aside from the small hole the tubes from my humidifier go through (and I have duct tape surrounding it so no air can get through that either). I highly doubt that the shoes in my closet are going to contam everything...

Beatle, you are probably right I havent been fanning enough. I only get around to it about once a day and I've missed a day or two in there also...

You can see the bluish cap in the pic.... look closely the first shroom up and to the left of the big one is one of the ones with a possibly moldy cap. Is it common for aborts to turn a bluish color?

Do you know how easily it is for spores and other contams to get into your terrarium? You don't even need to remove the lid, just crack it and it'll suck in plenty of nasties. But hey...it's your grow...don't cry to us that you may have contams growing on your cakes and caps if you're not going to follow basic sterility practices.

Peace,

Bop

point taken, however, its more then unlikley that my shoes are shooting off spores and contams, lol (especially since those havent been worn in 6 months or so)

Aborts caps will turn blue when they start to rot. Try to pick them if they seem to have stopped growing before the cap turns blue. Otherwise you can pick off the cap and the rest of the stem is usually ok to eat.

Lmao >>thats what im thinking here effed..how the hell he got fruits with used shoes sitting that close to
a terrarium HAHAHAH

Dude just because they havent been worn in 6 months dont mean anything. U wear it once, its got bacteria,
dirt from ya feet and all other nasties there and not to mention anything floating i the air could use ur shoe
as a landing strip. But it appears it hasnt affected ur success at all =D

I dunno if its my screen but i see some yellow shit around the bottom right hand corner and some speckles!
But thats a nice yield. wait til u dunk her ... u should really have a bigger family!!! They never
grow the same size at the same time...that doesnt even happen in nature. Everything grows
at different rates, so dont sweat it..just pick them b4 the veil breaks.

Nice pins on the sides where the mycllium is...i' cant seem to get that on my cakes...they r alwayz on the bottom
and sometimes they grow out from under ( a few shrooms) and it makes the cake a lil slanted LOL

Good job though never ending!

My fruits have the same color cap...urs grow about 6-7" in length , do they? And their stalk aint that
thick, right? Is it talpalpa strain??(sp??) or maybe ecuador???

I wouldn't worry about the shoe. Really, unless you are opening the terrarium right where it is sitting and disturbing the shoe hence possibly increasing the average mold spore count in the air you're fine.

I thought people were joking when they started talking about that shoe. Personally I have never had problems putting a terrarium in dirty spots as long as you don't open them in dirty spots. Not that anyone would want to tempt fate though.

I have often had the 'misfortune' of growing like what you see there.. basically one MUTANT shroom and smaller minions I remember a particularly big one weighing in at 40g's wet before.. it was really really tall, ended up falling over like yours, not before hitting the top of the terrarium.

..It looks like that cap is a rock sitting next to a tapeworm.. Sorry.. But anyways.. At least you have one big shroom. It's a great beginning.. I think it's safe to eat that as long as it's not rotting.

lol thanks for the replys...
The white stuff is Calcium Chloride... it basically sucks all the moisture out of the shrooms and sends it to the bottom of the bowl... and the pink rag is just to make sure the CC dosent fall right through So far this method of drying seems to be working well.



There they are today... the cake on the left is starting to go nuts And yes, I still havent moved the shoe, lol

THAT ONE SHROOM IS GROWING TOWARDS THE SHOE! I think I'm going to go buy a bunch of wal mart shoes and put them inside of the terranium to see if it promotes extra growth.

Your next time around, try filling up a big fat turkey pan with cow shit and straw mix in the mycellium until it over runs the cow shit case it and throw it in the light. You will then wonder why you ever went with the cake method. You will get more mushrooms in one sixteenth of that turkey pan, than you will get out of all four flushes if you do it right. look at your picture and see how much room you are wasting.
