Here are the 3 bags ready for harvest. I should have harvested 2 days ago, but I kinda forgot about them. This strain is Blue Magnolia, which is pretty wild still. With more domesticated strains you usually get better results, as there are less possible phenotypes. Still, it is a good amount of mush from the 1st flush of these 3 bags, made with 1 small bag of grain.

These bags were only opened once when they were put into fruiting, and that was to pour out any excess water in the bag and give it a quick fanning. Otherwise they were kept shut and ignored until harvest time.

Total from all 3 bags 1st flush:

This tek is finished, I hope you guys enjoyed it!!

(If a mod wanted to move this to the bag section that would be cool) :)

MM what would be a rough qt amount of substrate to make if you wanted a 2 inch layer in the 0.5 micron bag? For 1 bag or 4?

I am fruiting 3 bags I made 10 days ago. After 10 days in the inc they are usually pinning already. All I do is open them up, pour out any water that has pooled at the surface (usually only a few drops if anything). Then I fan them with a piece of cardboard or something, or hold the bag in front of a fan. I only do this for 10-15 seconds, and it's not even necessary :)

Seal those bad boys up and there's no need to open them again until harvest time!! Of course, you can open them once a day and fan, but it is really not necessary. I don't notice a difference in yield, it's just extra work.

The bags are kept in a room with a ceiling fan set on the lowest setting for fae, and there is light also. That's it! They should start pinning in a few days and the 1st flush harvest will be ready usually in 10-14 days after fruiting, somtimes sooner. I will post pics when there are fruits popping up in them bags :)

Here they are:

That is a really good trick! Thanks! Bags are ordered, can't wait to try this. Just to confirm - no casing? Would it help or have no effect at all?

I got my distilled water off eBay. I got 5 litres, but my workplace has numerous research labs, with good access to distilled water so I plan to top up when needed from there. Here in the UK at least it is also sold in petrol stations/garages as it is used in car batteries, radiators and engine cooling systems.

one of the four tamed out. Surprisingly the one i bled on is still good!  The rest are going pretty slow. The A+ is about 50% and the 2 Pan Cams are only 15%. Sloooooooooooooooooow. But i did do 3 bags with some left over sub and grain that didn't fit into a 56 gal mono and those suckers started pinning last Friday and are now taking off! Along with the tub. All is good
