Grow Question ???
    #818327 - 08/15/02 04:30 PM (19 years, 5 months ago)

Hello,

A friend of mine tried the Horse Poo Tek with Alien's Substrate using Golden Teacher's and cased with Coco Coir. my question is this. He got a really good pinset by cold shocking problem is that the shrooms are really tall but not very thick. The caps are only the size of a quarter. The Humidity is 89-90 Using a digital hygrometer. Fanning 3 times a day. Also there seems to be fuzzy white stuff growing at the base of the shrooms.

Any idea's on how I can get these to grow bigger?
Any suggestions or tips?

Thank you in advance!

i'm kinda new at this but my guess would be that you need to get our humidity up a lil higher. but thats just my guess. the white stuff on the base of the stems is probably mycelium (once again i thnk that is because of the humidity.) but i could be wrong. wait for more answers from more experianced cultivators

Well your problem with the skinny shrooms is probably c02. Try fanning 5 times a day to solve this problem if you can. 95% humidity is good but as soon as you see pins bring it to 85- 92% humidity (it seems that you are right on track! ). Now I just need to know how big the pins are. Usually when pins first start they tend to have some of that "white fuzzy stuff" on them. If they are reasonably big (pics please!!) now your digital hygrometer probably isn't very accurate and is aiming a little high.

The ting as well is that if you ave a good pinset then there really isn`t a problem at all.
If you are getting a good flush maybe you`re just being fussy?

When you fan, try to give it a good deep push of air to force the CO 2 out of the growing chamber, or, lift your tray out of the growing chamber, turn the chamber over to pour out the CO2, then turn it back over to the correct position, and put back your casing tray. Golden Teachers need alot of good oxygen, my friend has found that they tend to grow nice and thick with large caps when exposed to fresh constant air. bluhoney

Yeah sounds like co2 you could go to a bigger deeper tub like me if this isn't a problem. i only fan twice a day and my stems are nice and thick. Other than the thin stems it sounds good!!

instead of doing all that extra work, how about just putting a couple holes near the bottom of the chamber....if it is possible. and even better, put 1 or 2 holes near the top to get some flow. and EVEN more better, get an aquarium air pump....they're cheap.

but i don't even think co2 exchange is your problem.
