Eh, my tubs are struggling cuz of temp/humidity fluctuations and FAE probs. I had left the humidifier in the room on for 24 hrs when I forgot to shut it off & I had to work all night the other night.
I usually only run it for an hour or so 2-3 times a day because of the furnace drying everything out. Also there's no vents in the room(big walk in closet) and I gotta run a heater sometimes at night so It got really cold and humid the other night, so I'm pretty sure that was the problem.
A few pins started to get light brown sorta color like bruising on the stipes and split(around, not down), like the cap started separating early and the biggest one's cap is pre-maturely opening. Also the same color on a patch of myc on the sub.
I normally don't run a fan in there cuz there's good air movement but I put one in there to dry it a bit, the walls even felt sorta damp, and I ran the heater also.
Now, if a fruit drops spores on the substrate, does it really signal others to do the same? I kinda noticed they don't do as well after a spore mess and googled it, and found people on these forums saying exactly that. Is this true? Is it like a hormonal signaling or something? It's interesting.
I let a lot of my cake fruits sporulate all over, and the second flushes were kinda crappy, then a few had big thirds, but some only gave one or two flushes. Is the spore mess on the cakes/substrate causing this?
These tubs did start pinning really early and are taking a while to grow, I'm still dialing in FAE, replaced polyfil with microprore on one to see if there's much difference. They both seem to keep slight condensation on the top tub and they do seem to be recovering with the added tiny fan across the closet blowing towards the wall.
The pics are the same, but oh well I took em.
