NiceMyce posted a topic in General Mushroom Cultivation Questions & AnswersHello! First grow here and using the PF tek, noob yada yada I am 5 nights into the fruiting stage. Been keeping the temp around 72-73, humidity 95-99, 10 hours light/14 hours dark, and a more or less constant supply of fresh air. ~half of my cakes were noc'd with golden teachers, and the other half with tha lipa yai. I have many questions but will keep them concise, and hoping someone with experience can help a brother out since there is an incredible amount of contradicting information on the web about every step of the process. Questions: 1 - Does anything in these pics look like aborts? 2 - Any signs of contamination, or cause for concern? I am noticing tiny spots on many of the lil shroom heads (#1). One shroom head looks hollowed out (#2) and one looks a bit dilapidated (#3) 3 - Any recommendations for speeding up the fruiting of the TLY cakes? Does my FC in pic #5 sound any alarms to anyone? ....7 GT cakes on the left, 9 TLY cakes on the right and bottom center, and then 1 cake top center that I noc'd with both GT and TLY just because I was curious what would happen. (The humidity is down because I had the top off for a bit. ) In general, it looks like the TLY cakes are lagging. In fact. 4 out of the 9 TLY cakes don't have any pins, but it appears the mycelium is taking over the verm from my dunk/roll. I see nothing other than white in the cakes and in the perite. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. While this is my first time, I'm really trying not to fuck it up. many thanks!
Hey guys. since this may be a noob question Ill do my best to keep it short. Bellow is a picture from of 1 of 3 dub tubs I have growing. (that picture is one occurrence of many other similar areas in the tub). Which are from the same WBS and the same casing recipe and the same the strain. Each dub is on its second flush now and besides this one tub things are going swimingly. I have dunked them and I am convinced my FAE is at least adequate considering I mist and fan at least 3X a day. So I cant figure out why this one dub is producing such strange fruits. They seem almost gelatinous and are very dark in color. Not to mention I am picking out new aborts almost everyday. So are these boys fine? Or is there something I may be overlooking? Thanks in advance for the help.
Do any of you guys scrspe or cut aborts and thick myc off used ou subs for the purpose of making tea or alcohol reductions or anything? Or is that just too much to do since you have grown actial shrooms already?
