This is my first time growing mushrooms (me and friend actually).
This is how we went and how we are right now:
April 5 we started with rice, "esterilizing" (we don't have a pressure cooker so we boiled the jars a couple of hours) and so on.
After a week or so.
After two weeks.
Mixed colonized rice with coconut fiber.
After another week.
Applied a thin layer of vermiculite.
After 10 days or so.
Some days after.
This is from 2 days ago.
Wer added a LED light light as the room is quite dark.
We collected the bigger mushrooms and use the 2 bigger hats to make prints.
I have a couple of questions:
- We are not sure why the mushrooms are small and we also expected to grow a lot more, maybe a weak FAE? my friend opened only once a day this last days. Maybe lack of light?
- We plan to collect all of the mushrooms and get ready for a second flush but we are not sure on how to proceed here.
- The current container has 2 inches (aprox) of water at the bottom with a fish tank heater, but It seems humidity is droping (we never misted as we thought the water in the container will give the needed humidity), any thougths on this?
