    10 days into the run

    I wouldn't worry until I see some kind of funky growth. A casing on your next grow will help.
  3. Just an update (and inquiry)... how do you you know when the cap is about to open? Some of these opened before they were picked. Also, there aren’t nearly as many pins as when they were in the jars. Are they too dry or something? They were dunked for 24+ hours. Thanks

    10 days into the run

    Ok. So I plan on chiming in on this thread until harvest. Right now, there are maybe five pins (shrooms at this point) which are only a day or two away from maturity, whilst the rest of the cake is covered with knots and looks like it will be a BOOMER of a tub. However, should I be worried that it’s coming up on three weeks and I’m just now starting to see what may become an ocean of pins? Contamination has not been a problem yet, fingers crossed, but if it’s going to be damn near a month in fruiting conditions before harvest I’m just a little worried thoughts? @mushmouth @MagicalCriminal
  6. Doesn't look very colonized. Or maybe that's a shadow looking like the side.

  8. So this is how it's been for 5 days. No growth on any of the pins. The only thing is the big guy in the top left opened its veil as a pin. Kinda weird
  9. That's a great tip. I have the biggest problem with condensation during the cool down period when you can't turn them over. If my flowhood was assembled I would leave lids off in front of the flowhood. Until then, the hot mason jar does a great job. Usually only a couple plates in the stack will condensate and not enough to drip.

    Grow log 2

    Update pic of a couple PE. After the last pic, gave them a shake. Now have myc on all grains. Won't be long. Something I have noticed and I'm sure most of you have noticed in your own grows, where it touches the bag (in this case, each grain) growth is slower. Previous grows have had the bottom uncolonized while the rest is a white block. Fixed those before by laying the bag on its side. Now I wonder if I pull the bag away from the grain, will the grain pressed against the bag get a kick start and finish quicker? Something I plan on trying when I get home.

    First time grow, is this ruined?

    Yep. The more grows you do, started with your own spores or clones or what have you, the safer you'll feel.

    First time grow, is this ruined?

    For me, particularly as a newbie, I always start with more grain spawn than I’m going to need. Basically, I plan on losing 10-20% of my spawn to contamination. Even if I end up with a 100% success rate (which hasn’t happened yet due to contam that surfaces after about two weeks of routing conditions), having an extra quart or two gives you way more room to work with. Also, for whatever reason, I don’t think many people know that you can refrigerate a fully colonized jar for like at least a couple months.
  13. Storing them upside down in the inc will stop condensation from forming.

    How's it smell through the tyvek? Pic seems to show myc on the glass preventing visual inspection.
  15. Check tec section for agar recipes. Just about any agar will do. MYA, PDA, etc. Best tip I have is after pouring place mason jar of hot water on the stack of plates while cooling. This reduces the amount of condensation on your plates. You don't want water running around your plates.
  16. Possibly aborts from first flush. Sorry can't view pics right now.
  17. That's what I do with LM. Cubes I put to bulk in tubs.
  18. So I harvested the first flush which came out great. However the 2nd flush pins havent shown any signs of growth in about 5 days. Whereas the first flush was almost fully grown in like 3 days. The pins were there when I harvested the first flush and they've been the same since then. Any idea as to why?
  19. Just roll down those bags instead of cutting them off and you can reuse them. Idk why it wouldn’t work but you could do a bag grow and have good luck with it as well.
  20. If you have good clean jars of grain it doesn't matter how you nocced them, you should feel safe to use them in a bulk grow. The lazy mans agar... Fungus is a very strange life form. Mushrooms seem like just a concentrated amount of the mycelium it grew from.
  21. It sounds like something I've seen many times. Have any pics?

    Bleaching hay

    Straw is a by-product of seed (or grain) production. For example, a farmer who grows wheat will harvest the grain; the dry plant that remains after harvest is straw. Hay is grown specifically, and it’s cut before the plant goes to seed. Because the plant pumps nutrients into the seed or grain, hay will have more nutrients than straw. -copied from http://www.usaforage.org/products/straw-vs-hay/

    Wheat straw is hay. The most common one. Good luck with finding other types.

    This is what I've always heard.
  25. That doesn't look like Cube myc to me.

    Got a feeling you won’t be able to reach high enough to get that “big boomer in the sky” lol

    How do I make magic mushroom spawn?

    My best suggestion to you would be to dig deeper in this website, there are many tutorials/teks for everything you want to know in the forums. I’d do a lot more researching if you want to have a successful grow.
