Sooo, I wanted to experiment with microgrowing. I had some leftover Vigrow garden soil mixed with perlite, but I added some Menards garden soil I found in the garage. I filled all my little pots, planted 4 mystery seeds in 0.5 gallon , and 1 Bruce Banner in a 1 gallon pot. Over the past few days I’ve noticed what I thought was fertilizer swelling up. To My amazement it wasn’t fertilizer but little mushrooms growing with of my mystery sprouts. I haven’t done anything with them. I thought to let them grow since they produce natural CO2. What should I do? I never had a mushroom problem with garden soil. I think the soil I found in the garage probably had the spores bc I have 2 autos growing in the Vigrow garden soil with perlite added; and no mushrooms in their soil. Only little seedlings I think is lettuce.
Mushrooms are a good sign
Agree with @Caligurl I have been getting more mushrooms popping up. I contacted the manufacture of the nutrients I am using (Earthdust). They replied that mushrooms are a sign of a healthy biome. Mine dry out under the HLG light very quickly.
Was he growing psilocybin somewhere close? Those spores can blow in from miles!
I’m just messing around aha my buddy grew them, we’re in the mitten but it’s possible they’re growing locally when in season
@JaneQP that’s what I noticed too but they’re getting back. I just treat them like the seedlings. Oh the other seedlings I found are indeed lettuce . I’m growing it too since it’s a shallow root plant they probably won’t compete for nutes.
Thank you and @Caligurl for your input
I would avoid getting leaves wet with lights on as it will burn the leaves. Otherwise gonna follow along quietly and watch the progress happen. Good luck
Thank you for the tip. Are you referring to the seedlings or the mushrooms? They’re in a 3x2 tent, 2 Lumi LED lights 24in away from the plants, humidifier, 2 fans, and an open window to help keep the temperature around 74-77 degree F. The Lumi lights don’t put off as much heat as my MarsHydro TS1000 but I’m constantly monitoring. Thanks again.
