Very soon you will have harvested your very first mushrooms. To recap, you have now completed your 12 hour soak, and your cakes are ready to begin growing. Get your sanitizer out (Isopropyl alcohol). For this step you will need 3 things, a humidifier, a storage container, and a small light you can place inside (and of course your isopropyl alcohol to sterilize but that should be a given at this point). First, sterilize your humidifier and storage container, all areas, give it a good wipe down. Second, place your humidifier in your container, this will provide the moisture content needed for fruiting. Lastly, place your cakes in your fruiting chamber. The humidifier will provide plenty of moisture but it may be beneficial to open up the fruiting chamber and spray the cakes down with your pure water as well. Additionally, as a personal measure, I also take the time to wipe down any standing water building up within the chamber. This is just asking for mold which can potentially contaminate your grow. This process typically takes a week
You can find the humidifier I use in the resources section.
Hey how're you? Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. My name is Emmanuel. I hail from State College, PA. I grew up always enjoying the outdoors, it's so peaceful isn't it? Even though I wasn't good at growing at first, I stuck with it, I honestly just wanted the satisfaction of creating something. In 2012 I joined the NAVY, and for years I got away from my passion, and really didn't like my job anyway. So, after a while I decided to jump back into it, and thus was born, "Growers Unite". In here I'll cover all the fundamentals, tips, tricks and my own trials and tribulations, lets get started.
