my Foaf in deep space orbit sent my these pics.

He says he "spawned" 2 qts of WBS to 1 qt of verm and cased in 1/4" verm. There have been some tiny fat pins for arround 4 or 5 days, and the number is rising but they arent getting much bigger. They are really fat and funny looking. Anyone know what could be causing this? is this what happens when you grow in no gravity?

Just keep fanning and misting of the sides of the tub or tetarrium a few times a day. Don't directly mist pins at that stage of growth. Misting pins direct at that stage could stunt or abort growth.

these were not misted after pins showed. They are in a greenhouse set up so they should be getting air.

Could this have anything to do with it? Never heard of spawning to straight verm before.

i'm not sure, but they look pefectly normal to me.

i've had many pins that look like that and grow into nice mushrooms fine.

i do admit though, that spawning to vermiculite is a little odd. i would've added something nutritive to it, at least.

this is based on highflyers rez effect post in archives. it sounded kinda funky to me too, but it also sounded easy and stuff. The pins do look pretty normal its just that they arent taking of like i usually see.

On a second note, has anyone figured out what causes really hollow stems?

I THINK that it is caused by overabundance of CO2/lack of fresh air.

I had some pins that took days and days to grow, but they were like 4th flush. Well all you can do now is wait and see what happens. If those pins don't do anything, more will probably form and mature.

90's too high for casings. Works good for cakes but, 70-75% rh works better for casings IMO.

there isnt any condensation on the casing so i figure its not TOO high. it actually varies from arround 75-90. depending on when the humidifier is going off.

thanks cheffy. My foaf injected it with arround 100-150 ccs of water.

Think that its 'too late' for these pins to mature? Maybe is hould dunk it, i mean its nothing but verm and WBS so it should hold water good...i mean its suposed to be rez effect lmao...

more water tomarrow via injection then more the day after that, get a pint or two in there, my tubs realy take alot of water, I mean alot.

those pins might be ok , I wouldnt mess with them.

I am assuming those are bus tub size casings, hard to tell by the pics.
