yukoncornelius posted a topic in General Mushroom Cultivation Questions & AnswersHello comrades, i was just curious as to the reason(s) why these mushrooms grew so funky... As you can see, they have super wavy stems which are almost completely hollow. As they grew, the stem eventually split open to reveal the hollow insides, and those that didn’t do this ended up with split stems upon being picked. Anyone have the issue before or know why this would happen? For the record: They were grown using BRF cakes that were shredded and combine with Coco coir & verm (50:50) and converted to bulk substrate in a mini plastic Tupperware container with air holes poked into it with blackout paper glued to the sides to prevent light from entering where it isn’t supposed to. They’re misted 2-4xs per day w/ d-H2O. I’d guess maybe too much water/misting? But hey, if I knew, I wouldn’t be posting this question on here right now lol Thanks in advance! -YukonX
Basola posted a topic in General Mushroom Cultivation Questions & AnswersIm a first time grower so I am working off of the limited research i've done and the posts on the online forums,. Ended up getting the inoculation and incubation down pat after a few attempts but now that i'm in the fruiting phase I feel as if i'm doing a few things wrong. I've have had theses babies in the fruiting chamber for about a week now and the caps on one cake are developing wayy more than the body of the shrooms. And now I'm a bit worried because there are little to no pins on the other cakes and the ones that have developed seemed to have stalled or are growing abnormally. I mist above the cakes, far enough so that they only get misted and not drops of water on them, a couple times a day and fan about 4-5 times a day. The first three images are of the one cake with good development at the start. This is what they looked like at day 4. This is how they've developed after one week (present)
Hi everyone! I’m new to the magical world of mushroom cultivation. Just had my first harvesy of Blue Oysters and they were gorgeous and amazing. This is pinning off of some new blocks. The photos were taken 24 hours apart. I’m worried about the mounds that look like stunted growth. Is this contamination? The substrate recipes are slightly different but both the blocks I just harvested and these have the same LC source. Any help or info would be much appreciated!!
