Dead mycellium???
« on: July 31, 2007, 07:56:30 PM »

could use some input, like for reals.

How can I tell if the cakes are dying? the myc not looking too good on the cakes in the tub with holes tek. it looks like the myc has gone flat or something, not good white color anymore.

they started out real good. now lookin kinda sickly. gunna be sad to waste a dozen cakes.

I have a few other cakes in a plain dark dark blue tub with wire mesh over perlite and
covered the top with saran wrap which I fan out three times per day and spray the sides.  and very small light about two feet above for approx. 6-8 hours/daily. don't know what the RH is but still lookin good. almost two weeks now and cakes are not fully covered with fuzz.

Well, I think you can answer this yourself.... 2 tubs, one with holes, one without...
One looking dry, one not....

The holes are either to big, or you put to many holes in it.

Take scotch tape or some other kind of tape and tape off the holes until you get the RH correct.
You may not be misting it enough also.
If you are the guy that don't have a hydrometer you need to go buy one.
They are very important.
