Small frutis because of too much FAE????
    #9855934 - 02/24/09 02:16 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey everyone,
Just wondering if small fruits could be from too much FAE?  I have follow large doses coffee/coir tek and this is my 2nd time.  The 1st time there was a nice pinset but very small fruits...i dunked that one and the 2nd flush i got big fruits.  Now my new batch is looking like it is going to do the exact same thing and I'm wondering if maybe i should just dunk now before the 1st flush really starts?

Are you misting enough? Your substrate is probably on the dry side if you are getting small fruits. Are you acquiring field capacity when preparing your substrate for grain spawn? Also, what is your RH?

I sure am...

a tab bit over a gallon for one brick coir, 1 qt verm, 1 qt coffee the same as large doses tech and he is getting 6 oz 1st flush...

I am not using a casing, but i just birthed it so it shouldnt be low on water just yet.  Anyone think i should dunk before this 1st flush really kicks into full gear?

I think you should let the first flush go, then dunk. But you might be able to get by dunking in the middle of the flush. Too much FAE could lead to too much evaporation leading to smaller mushrooms, but if you are misting adequately, then that shouldnt be an issue.

mushrooms are 90% water.  every lil bit helps but dont leave pools/puddles or standing water more than a few drops.  a nice heavy mist every few hours is what i do on my uncased sub and I can get some big mushies.

every time I see this starting to happen(smaller mushies)  I pour water around the edges and let it soak it up for 12 hrs or so, then remove excess water.  the next day you will notice the diff.

Its safer not to dunk before or during the first flush, for reason of primordial establishment.

Most of your pins are made during that flush and you risk getting less pins if their underwater (not to say it won't work it's just more risky).

It is often that first flushes are smaller fruits, and then (especially when dunked, but even without) the large to average come in the next flushes.
