WIMPY MUSHROOMS
    #824889 - 08/18/02 06:05 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I am in need of help. I have 5 PF style cakes that are fuiting in a perlite terrarium. I had one cake produce a nice sized mushroom. And that was it. Now all I am getting is little tiny worm-like shrooms, with little or no cap. I am fannig my terrarium, once in the morning, luch,dinner, and before i crash. And lighting with a small 5 WATT night-light sort of thing. I think it is flourecent. My humidity is at HH on my gage, that means over 99%, but i see no water on the sides of the terrarium.

Has this every happened to anyone else. I am using a amazon strain I bought at a head shop. That one shroom was very cool , now I have a few little shity shrooms, What canI do?????? PLEASE HELP

You should be able to see condensation on the sides of your walls if the humidity is that high. Try misting the sides every time you fan. Also have you tried dunking? Its suppose to work really good.

Yeah, you definitely should see condensation if yo uhave 99% humidity. Your gauge probably needs to be calibrated, or it is just junk. Go to a cigar shop and look for a hygrometer there, you can buy a pretty reliable one for around $20 I think, or you could just check the sides of your terrarium for condensation and judge the humidity level from that. What humidification method are you using? If you are using perlite you may need a larger surface area, or more water. If you are hand spraying you may need to mist a little more, and possibly fan less. I'd say you should only fan twice a day, once in the morning and once at around dinner time (thats what I have always done with good results).

Good luck man

yes, fresh shrooms are much more potent than dried. if you can handle the taste and consistency, you'll enjoy the effects very much.

Actually if you dry your mushrooms properly you`ll battle to notice a difference in potency.
I`ve eaten fresh and dried, ultimatelly all you need to know is that as long as they`re homegrown and cared for they're gonna be potent.

To be honest, I prefer them dry. Too much bulk for me when wet and I hate the taste. Almost makes me want to puke thinking about it.. LOL

I hear you mickey.
Lately I haven`t been to partial with fresh shrooms, I never used to mind the taste but latelly I can`t eat them fresh, I think I don`t like the taste of normal edibles fresh anyway.
So dried nicely they go down well and they`re smaller when dried.
You ever tried eating a big-ass mushroom fresh??? Makes you retch.

condensation doesn't really tell you about humidity at all. Condensation occurs when the temperature of the gaseous h20 is not of the surrounding air. When this occurs condensation forms. If both the gaseous h20 and the air are at the same temperature, than no condensation will form. Even if the humidity is 100%

Hell yes! I remember the days (years ago) when I used to eat fifty grams fresh. I had to choke them down every time. Last time I ate them fresh, they made me puke, so now I always eat them dry. Not only is there less to eat, it doesn't have that aftertaste.

The shelf life of properly dried shrooms attract me as well. Nothing like putting some away for a rainy day..

Hi

The problem may be the light.
I once tried to grow under a fluorescent light for only 4-6 hours a day. The cubensis grew tall with small caps and the panaeolus cyanescens failed to reach maturity.
You may need a more powerfull lamp. Indirect sunlight works well for me.
