Cultivation / Fruiting in darkness
« on: December 22, 2008, 07:38:06 PM »
I've noticed that keeping my FC in the dark with a blanket over it produces faster growth of mushrooms. In comparison, when I give them light for half the day the growth slows. Why is this? The only time I don't have them in the dark is for the brief moment of fanning the FC. Once I've done that I put the blanket back over it, shut the closet and leave it be. What effect does the light have that benefits growth? I certainly don't see any benefit. Seems like it takes them longer to grow with light. Has anyone else tried this?

Cultivation / Which strain is the fastest?

Under correct conditions, what would you say is the fastest colonizing and fruiting strain of Cubensis?

PF - Tek / FC Holes Necessary?
« on: October 19, 2008, 08:52:29 AM »
I was wondering if drilling holes in the FC is necessary? If I fan it a few times a day? Doen't that create more humidity?

PF - Tek / Re: FC humidity staying at 85%

it's a smaller FC. Have about 3 inches of perlite. Still no condensation. How will this effect the growth cycle? Does it stop it? Will they still grow? Or just slow down? I'm still going to add more.

PF - Tek / FC humidity staying at 85%

Why is one of my FC holding at 85% with no condensation on the walls? Using perlite. I spray occasionally but it doesn't want to move up.

General topics / Inactive jars
« on: October 17, 2008, 04:43:47 PM »
a little over 4 weeks ago I innoculated sixty jars using 6 different strands from 2 separate suppliers. Of the sixty, I had 9 turn green, 14 fully colonize, and the remaining jars have done absolutely nothing. I used the pf tek method and the temp is steady at 82. What is the problem? I had one strand (Blue Meanies) take right off. Another strand (hawaiian) take longer but finally came through. But the remaining ones have done nothing. No contamination, no spotting, no nothing. Could it possibly been that I bought bogus spore syringes?
