Blue cake. Dry?

Recommended Posts

AmySorg

It was made with bird seeds and bulk. Water and faning 3 times a day. Temp is around 63F - 66F (I'm in Massachusetts, it's pretty cold here right now) 

I thought it could be just bruise but I haven't touched the cake so Im not sure. 

 

Does it look healthy?

I think it's bruising.

It's harder to keep high RH with lower temps like that. You should have cased that tray for sure, but keep doing what you're doing.

I'm pretty newbie at this and English is not my first language. 

Two questions:

What RH means? 

What exactly do you mean by "cased the tray" and why is that important? 

 

Thank you so much for helping! 

Maybe it's not perfect but I'm getting tons of good shrooms! But still, I want to learn everything that I can.

Relative Humidity.

If you can't sustain RH above 85%, you should do this...

Just to make sure, that mix goes on the bottle of my substrate, right?!

That mix would be sprinkled on top of your substrate until it is between 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick. right before putting into fruiting conditions, which is after your myc has fully colonized your substrate.

Case on your next round.

Does it matter if your RH is above 95%? A lot of the time my cakes stay around 99%. But, they seemed to be dry so I started misting and fanning twice a day as of the day before yesterday. They started turning blues a few days ago.

Yo Holmes, miscommunication. I was reiterating what you said. Directed at amy.

Thank you guys. They look healthy, at least I had a crazy intense trip with just 3 shrooms. (about 18 grams fresh) 

Do you guys have any pics of yours just to have an idea?

Of what? Our casing?

Like a fork split english muffin... lots of nooks and crannies...

      Peeked again today.   3 of the 10 Corumba jars appear to be 100% colonized or real close and may be ready for the fruiting chamber in 7-10 days.   4 of them have some, a failed to pack area, near the glass side and I am assuming that was due to me not wanting to pack them to tight while loading them.   The one I missed a noc point on is the farthest behind obviously and I'm hoping it doesn't stall out before fully colonizing.   The A+ are coming along slowly.   No signs of tam.   Next Sunday I'll know more at the 3 week point.   So far so good.

      Only one way to find out for sure.   Mix it with a good substrate and see if it colonizes cleanly.   If so case it and put it into fruiting conditions.

      Yum, the bottom looks like it's full of bacteria hence the gooey looking grains, and if it takes 2 months to get to that weak looking myc then something is wrong. With GT it should look more like a big cotton ball.

      It looks ok to me. I would proceed to the next step of your tek. I assume you're going to mix with a bulk substrate.
    • AmySorg
      So I bought two grain spawn bags (from shroom supply). They took forever to grew the mycelium (almost two months). The first one was very weird so I just threw it away (sadly). The Second one is weird so I'm not sure if I should proceed with it.    There's white all over it but it doesn't look like mycelium but it doesn't look like mold either.    Can you guys help me please?
