Hey guys! Just a few comments about the second fruiting on your bags. My bag that was made on 4/03 just started its second fruiting 3 days ago on 5/25. That is 3 weeks between fruiting! Don't give up on your grow bag!
It can take up to 3 weeks for the second wave. My bag from 4/03 just started fruiting on 5/25!
I placed 4-8 cups of ice in the top of the bag and let it melt and soak into the substrate two weeks after the first fruiting and set it outside during a few cool nights as well. Brought it in and it fruited in my den just a few days ago! I also set the ceiling fan on low.
Time between fruitings was 3 weeks! So give your bag time to rest and recharge. It should fruit again.
Here are some photos of the second fruiting. I think my second crop of mushrooms will weigh about 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound when harvested! Less that the first fruiting because the mycelium is getting weaker and running out of food. It is still enough to enjoy in a stir or fried rice (our family's favorite dish).
