  3. Ok here is my Puerto Rican mono. Just put it into fruiting my Penis envy mono is looking good and will go into fruiting soon. I'll be spawning another batch of Golden Teachers to substrate in a few days and I have 2 grain bags going of PR and 2 Nepal Chitwans. So I keep posting pics as it comes along

    Grow Log #4

    Put some 2 day fan dried shrooms into the ziplock gallon bag with damp rid last night. Should have been cracker dry this evening. They were not as dry as they were before I put them in there. Glad I checked. Maybe the desiccant needs replacing? I'll give that a try after a couple of days air drying. Always check. If I hadn't checked them in just a short time they would have been blech non-useable. Catastrophe averted.

    Grow Log #3

    Now all I have to do is keep them alive and learn how to properly mist a casing and learn what it looks like when it's dry and what it looks like when it is wet enough vs not wet enough. I'm thinking it'll take a heavier misting than cakes and it'll dry out sooner than I would expect.

    Grow Log #4

    Pulled the foil off the other two 6qt tubs of GT. They both looked like this. Bulk grow on this tek 100% successful. Four 6qt tubs of GT are now in their FC's. 5 more cakes to roll and reintroduce into the FC today and I'm done. Started doing something new. You know how cakes get concave on the tops and sometimes water will pool on them and they are the first to turn blue from stress? I've started putting them into bathe top side down and after rolling in verm I am placing them top side down onto the wet verm lids. This leaves a nice flat surface for the fruiting cycle. It also puts the bruised from stress myc next to the wet verm in the bottom of the lid where it'll stay more hydrated.

    Raising humidity

    I have been wondering about some of this stuff too with the room my dubs are in . My IC is down at the moment . Ive got weatherstripping on the tubs and was thinking about putting a small humdifier in their room on a timer .

    Fruited cakes 12 and 13 this morning total combined 84g. The last 4 cakes are lagging behind and will be less fruits. Interesting how some produce more than others.

    King Oyster - Grow Log 1

    I ordered a King Oyster LC. While waiting for the LC to arrive, I tried Strobes WBS tek, doing my best to read over the tutorial multiple times to not miss any steps. Filled up 12 quart jars and PCed 7 of them for 90 min at 15 psi then did the other 5 jars the same. (I thought I maybe burned my WBS by the smell I had.) After the PC unlocked I immediately removed the jars and shook them, trying my best not to disrupt the 1/3 cup of Verm I put in the bottom of the jars. I shook the jars 2 to 3 times daily to help move the moisture around throughout the jars. The King Oyster LC arrived. With much excitement I set up my SAB, Lysol, alcohol, etc.... Worried about the moisture of my WBS and if I did everything right I only decided to inoculate 4 jars and save the other 8 jars just in case something went wrong with either the WBS or the LC being contaminated. It has been 2 days since inoculating the jars. I am seeing growth in 2 of my jars and could not be happier. I understand contamination could likely occur still but so far things are feeling very positive. (Pictures of jars will be posted in a few days when more growth occurs)

    Raising humidity

    I just came up with a really good idea while putting the lids back on after fanning. It's not "simple" but it's something that would do the job and not involve additional FAE beyond the 15 min. x 3-4 a day. I'll shop around for parts and see what's available out there to make it inexpensive as well as functional. The earth is slow but the ox is patient. ✌️

    Haven't been able to get the gallery to work so putting it here.

    Raising humidity

    Cool mist humidifier. Pond fogger. Both are way overkill for single tub environments but you asked for simple. Another method, fill jar with water and drape an absorbent cloth in and over lip of jar. Aim a computer fan at it inside tub. This would work for cakes since the jar would be sitting on the perilite. No room for it in a single tub bulk grow.

    Grow Log #4

    Fruited cakes #9 / 62g, #10 / 54g, and #11 / 33g today. Put together two new FC's and set up another FC table for them. Put 25g air dried shrooms in the final drying chamber to free up a drying rack. There are about 50g more. Mixed up 2 qts. of casing and PC'd it to case the 2 remaining GT 6qt. tubs tomorrow..... if they are free of tams. Busy day today. I'm tired. Kitchens a mess. Time to decompress. Unlax.

    Raising humidity

    Something I have been mulling over for quite some time.

    Wow. Nice pictures, and they're very helpful because this is my first grow. My cakes have far fewer pins, and some none at all. (I have four kinds and the B+ are doing the best.)

    Need help! What to do !

    So I’m better off just letting them sit in the same spot they have been the whole time until I get back from vacation ? That will be like 3 weeks past full colonization This is my first grow so I’m very protective of it. I tried to do them so they would be ready for birthing right when I got back from vacation but they actually colonized incredibly well and quickly. Much faster than I had accounted for. So now I’m going away right when I should be birthing them. Do they require much attention that first week after birthing

    Grow Log #4

    Fruited cakes #6 / 72g, #7 / 71g, and # 8 / 61 grams this morning ( pic #1). Three more cakes are waiting to be fruited. First I need to roll 3 and reintroduce them into the FC, that still won't get over 75% Rh. I will be making sure I get a good coarse verm coating on the cakes this time since Rh is not ideal. I also looked at two of the 6 qt GT tubs I put to spawn 12 days ago (pic #2). I cased the two I opened before I ran out of casing. I'll be mixing up more casing and PC'ing it tonight for the other two 6 qt tubs of GT that will be cased tomorrow IF they are without tams. My first possibly successful bulk grow so far.

    Decided to look at the p. mexicana. There may be hope yet MZ and I owe that success to you for the increase in IC temp that you recommended. I cased 6 of them that looked pretty good. My first grain to substrate success without tams! The 4 that I put foil over instead of lids dried out. There was still some living myc so I put them out under the tree in the backyard, misted them down to see if growth would restart and will let Mother Nature have a chance. One tamed out green on me and was buried in the cake graveyard under the tree in the back yard. Pics: #1 partially cased p. mex, #2 & #3 p. mex before casing, and #4 is the p. mex that greened out on me for contrast (it had a lid). The containers I got sucked. I'll be using ziplock from now on if I can find the right ones.
  22. What are some simple methods to raise humidity level that doesn't involve me misting a thousand times a day

    Mushroom drying

    Purchased an excalibur dehydrator after struggling with long dry times from fans and desiccant. And bulk harvests accumulate quickly, limiting space..excaliburs are pretty spacious as well.. 9 trays fully loaded at 135 degrees for 6-8 hours. Use silica gel packs in ziplocks after cracker dry for reassurance.. best purchase I ever made

    Fully colonized???

    That’s what I meant by dunk and roll. Fruit now.

    Fully colonized???

    Thanks buddy for the info.So I checked them today and I'm starting to see pins and a couple small fruits but it's so strange they are coming out of the not fully colonized part towards the jar lids. Since I see fruits and there are no contams do you think I should fruit now. This is pretty strange myc.THANKS AGAIN.

    Mushroom drying

    This can be a problem....you can cut the cap off the stem and dry as separate pieces, or as I have done - dry in front of a fan first, just to get some of the bulk of moisture out and let it shrink down enough to fit comfortably in the dehydrator trays. Also because they are already smaller going into the dehydrator, you can fit more into the trays at a time.

    Fruited two more cakes this morning. #4 was 68g and #5 was 72g. Messed up and didn't take pics. I was still bleary eyed. And, yes I cut a cap for a spore print from this thick stiped beast that is curling on the above pic 2nd cake from the left top row. It's on foil under a jar for a few days.
