Cased Pans Cyanscens white puffs.

Question

My first tray of Pans.Cyanscens.

Spawned on rye berries. Cased 50/50 peat/Verm.

Covered in foil 10 days. I misted the casing after 5 days.

Opened last night and discovered this... I don't think it's mycelium...20161004_083200.jpg

I should add... there is a slight musty smell, similar to decomposing straw

From what I have read pans are slow on plain rye .and the mycilium on the one I have done so far looked really Cottony .i would sit it out in the light way away from your gro area I'm betting it turns green .sorry.

so you put a casing on then incubated the casing, after incubating the substrate?

I think there was a missed step. But you should send to fruit and see what happens!

Maybe we have a new tek... Not likely tho

Yes that is what I did. Ipasteurized 50 50 peat and vermiculite,  took the colonized rye berries and placed them into the bottom of a tray. Then I covered the berries with the casing. The first time I did this was with the initial colonized substrate from the Spore syringe. Results with this we're not super impressive although successful. However that was with Treasure Coast. The tray and this picture is pans cyans. Also the initial colonized substrate from Spore syringe but this time not the Treasure Coast. I do have a tray of Treasure Coast which seems to have successfully endured this casing colonization but time will tell. Other forums do not seem to indicate the requirement for this spawning substrate ie Coco coir and poop. Perhaps I read too many teks and got myself confused, but for example the PF Tek which I used initially early this year did not have this spawning step. In fact I did not even case these cakes but let them grow in a fruiting chamber and got two decent flushes. I am prepared to change my procedures because I want to be quite successful.

probably but doesnt look like much value for the money. my experience wih caribsea products is they cost way too fucking much. I have a lot of aquariums.

I'll keep looking. Also, is humus suitable as compost? I can get 50 lbs of Black Kow manure for a fiver at wallyworld..

yes humus works. it is basically compost. Just don't get anything that has added fertilizers or nutrients. And preferably no added peatmoss or anything that will lower the PH beyond normal levels.

7.5 - 8.0 ph you will need to adjust it most likely with pickling lime or the sorts.

Niidaho, one of my Ology heroes. Thanks for the space Coast spore prints it was super clean and I hope I'm about to get a monster flush. 

Thanks

      TT, I'm asking same question about a pe swab. If u find out anything definite, be sure to let us all know.       Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Got my PE today thanks!

      First time working with a swab based innoculation vector, Agar and LC are not options atm, are they any methods i could use besides making a single Grain jar then doing G2G?
    • Fungi2b
      All that stuff can be found in the salt water fish section. You would have to read what is used in the ph adjust kit.

      U should definitely not have any snakes calling over ur sub. I once read that diatonicmaceous earth would scratch reptiles belly plates & cause them to dehydrate. That's what it said.lol   Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Read my teks. None of them use gypsum at all. Then look at the results. I'm positive I can grow many species of mushrooms. Not just cubes. It can definitely be skipped! Although you do need to adjust pH with most bulk substrates. You can use gypsum to adjust pH, I just prefer using calcium hydroxide for that since it instantly adjusts pH. Gypsum is a pH buffer meaning it helps keep pH stable, but this is not effective against mycelium, as mycelium does excrete acidic enzymes as it decomposes the substrate. But because it is a buffer it doesn't really increase pH as much as calcium hydroxide will. It more so just keeps it steady in dirt.
