Possible Treasure Coast problems.
    #942135 - 10/08/02 09:39 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Okay, so I waited until the jar (1/2pt) BRF/Vermiculite was totally colonized on the outside, then waited another day until dunking. Mushrooms are getting 5-6 hours of light a day in 75 deg weather 95% humidity. What am I doing wrong?? It's been almost a week, and there's only one small bump on the second one that was birthed. I'm thinking maybe they didn't colonize all the way, so I'm waiting an extra 4-5 days until I birth the other ones that have already fully colonized. Any possible answers to what may be wrong?? The outside of the birthed ones are fuzzy, and white. Smell like mushrooms. That's all I have.

Be more patient. If the cakes are getting more fuzzy while in the fruiting chamber, you may want to drop the humidity a little to induce fruiting and stop vegatative growth.

So fuzzyness =vegative growth?? Hmm.... what are some signs that it's coming out of veg growth and into fruiting when I reduce humidity?? What amounts of humidity should I have?? Also, is 5-6 hrs of light under a cool blue 20w floro good??

good things come to ones that wait............
maybe try to give them a cold shock (70 degrees)

don't forget to fan atleast two - three times a day

They are being fanned 3 times a day at a set schedule. Pearlite is the humidification.... and they look and smell good. A cold shock eah?? How long do you sugguest I keep them at 70deg?? I threw them in the fridge overnight (12hrs) while dunking. So I thought that might induce some good pinning.. guess not huh? Is the light amount okay? How will I know it's gone from veg to fruit?? (Meaning... what should I look for in the difference in fuzzyness on the outside of the cake??)

in my opinion, one day after 100% isn't long enough. not that it should cause problems, but i wouldn't expect pins until after the full cake is colonized inside and out and that will probably be a while after 100% of the outside is done.

Some guides say to wait 3-4 days after the outside is fully colonized, some say to wait a week or two. What would you reccomend to wait after the outside is fully colonized??

4 to 7 days. i did some just when they were 100% and they seemed to sit there forever before finally pinning. my guess was they were finishing up the food inside first.

Cool, thanks a lot. Just that last question about lighting. I'm using a 20w cool blue w/ a piece of mylar on the top to make more reflection in the bin. The light is about a foot from the top of the mushrooms. Is this too far?? Too little light?? But my main question is ... Is 5-6 hrs of light / day good enough??

i've read so many conflicting stories about lighting from no lighting is okay to 24 hours of light is okay. some people have excellent results with little or no light, but i wouldn't recommend that. it seems to me that you any light for a few hours is enough. i'd say that no, your light isn't too far away and 5 to 6 hours a day is fine. i use 12 hours a day, but only because it's between none and 24 ;-)

Expect to wait 2 to 3 weeks for pins with this strain!
It's the hands down slowest strain I've ever seen :crazy:
High yeilding but very very slow.

sounds like you're getting alot of advice from people who have read a lot but never seen a grown shroom :wink:

it's fine, just wait - sometimes it takes a while to initiate pinning - in the future you can cold shock them.. but right now I think you are fine. Just wait.

patience =)

you guys will be happy to know that I have over 16 mushrooms on one cake and about 10 on the second. The other 5 got birthed a day ago and they should be pinning as well shortly. I love seeing these cakes explode and do well our first time at all but hey I was successful on my first time around growing pot thanks to cannabis culture's forum.

Listen to Psilocybinjunkie, the strain is slow to pin.
