Sweet! A tek even I can't fuck up!!!

 

Where is the best place to source these things....Filter patch comes to mind...Gypsum? Is limestone powder the same as pickling lime?

 

is the coir in a brick? or 325 gms dry non-comprssed? does it matter? (I've seen the video where the sawing of the coir is very painfull :P )

coir comes in a compressed brick or loose in a bag, but thats why weighing it is a much better idea then measuring it by volume.  Because 325 g's of compressed coir weighs the same as 325g's of loose coir.   see what I'm getting at ?    

 

2 cups of loose coir is not the same as 2 cups of compressed coir..

I'm a newbie at this but plan to hang around for a while. I bought an all american PC because I DONT want the thing to blow up. Also it seems that whatever industry you may be in, these are sworn by.

I was wondering, can I just knock hole in the wall and bust up some gypsum from the white dry wall, or should I definetly go with fertilizer grade calcium sulfate dihydrate. I just don't know if the garden/home brew gypsum is processed in some way where as drywall may be harmful or cause failure.

not sure about using dry wall gypsum.   if not having gypsum is all thats stoping you id skip it,  thats why it says "optional".   I have always used gypsum ( because thats the recipe i started with ) but a lot of people never touch the stuff and still have great results.

      I'm new to this site and new to growing as well. I am using a mail order grow- kit and I am at the spawning stage, 14 days in and I'm worried that I've killed it by overheating my grow room. The space heater I was using was wildly inaccurate and I think was pumping up the temperature to above 30°C for over a week. I have a new heater now and it is set at 28°C and it appears I am completely free of contamination however I only have about 15 to 20% mycellium spawn throughout the straw substrate and would like to get an opinion on whether I've killed things or if I've just delayed growth. The growth that is there looks healthy but I have not seen much progress lately.

      Thanks for the info. So I went on and tried to create 2 jars of LC. One with maple syrup and one with honey. I did them just like the instructions on this forum and was as careful as possible not to get contamination like sterilising the needle after each injection and so on. The jars you see in the picture are for more than 20 days ago if you look really close there are some tiny strings are visible in there but I'm not sure if it's mycelium. And the two jars of grains are a mix of grains and wild bird seed. It's been 5 days since I injected them with spore syringe but there is no sign of mycelium, not even a green mold of contamination. The syringe is b+ from Avalon . I'm thinking maybe I've got pure water inside a syringe. Give me some hope guys it's really frostrating to see the only hope of fun I had is going nowhere.😑😑😑 I don't even care about taking shrooms I just want to see mycelium grow... Btw I've been keeping the jars in a room temperature in the dark of course.

      Now that you have pins I would cut back on the fanning.  When my mush stays small, it's usually a lack of FAE. My setup is ultra low tek. I start sgfc with the holes taped up on sides and top. After I get pins I untape some/most of the holes to adjust FAE. It's kind of bootleg, but it's working for me at the moment. I usually average 3g per cake, per flush.    Congrats on getting those to finally pop.

      Thank you for the library of information & community! Questions regarding the Mush Zombie 60 qt monotub: During the "spawn to tub" (Section 3) 1)Do the holes need to be in place at this point? 2)Would it be ok to have the trash bag fully encapsulate the environment or does there need to be sufficient air exchange at this point? 3)If this is an issue during day 1 of 10 incubation, should one open the tub once a day to provide fresh air, or will it be ok for this 10 day period? The tub is in a 81*F bath (Cold House) & placed inside another tub to float on top. If all is good great, otherwise any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Again!
