Hey there. I am a newbie at growing mushrooms. My friend and I just began growing some Z-Strain shrooms a week ago or so. We will both be posting on the boards either as ALpH(me) or dIZZY. We set up a total of 12 jars and so far I have 2 in my grow-tank, 2 infected jar, and 8 jars that are just about ready to be born. I am using a tank with the perlite-humidification method. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them. Thanks and I'll be sure to post agian very soon.

Thanks for reading. ~ALpH~

Good luck. But out of paranoia, i suggest you come clean and tell us the truth. Its really your friends growing isn't it? you wouldn't have any part of that and then post it on the web. get my drift homes?

Totally. We don't want any illegal criminals and their underground drug factories on our nice clean board.. Now if you knew some awful terrorist bastard who was breaking the law, we'd be more than willing to hear about it.....

There is a plastic Tank with water in it and an identical plastic tank in side it touching the water. The bottom tank with the water is heated with an aqaurium heater and the perlite in inside the top tank. as of thus far there seems to be very good humidity in the tank. any questions or comments... lay em on me. Suggestions always welcome.

LOL...sounds like a STP setup....
anyhoo...
nows the waiting game..keep yer humidity high....
since yer tubs in water...does not sound as if you have an air exchange technique going on...so the best thing you can do is fan yer cakes a couple times a day....making sure to spray the air wit lysol...giving a few secs to kill anything airborn before you take the lid off and start fanning. CO2 buildup will put a hinderence on growth (in my most humble opinion [and experience])

In addition to air exchange, it is beneficial to lower the temp. for a good fruiting environment.
80-85 F for colonization
70-75 F for fruiting
