Nice Work.

I've done it that way for quite some time. Works well.

Less Glass to deal with.

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.

      I am confused on this comment. When the mushrooms grow they won’t all grow at the same time. I am confused. I don’t pick them pick right before the vail breaks and before they release spores. Can u explain the answer a little more for this newbie?  Thank ya!!

      Hooray, I can finally chip in!  Let me start right out by saying: this is a very cool idea. I have been musing for a while on how to create a cubensis growth system that places psilocin production under positive selective pressure, without having to actually assay every individual, and what you've come up with is by far the best route I've considered. I definitely think it's worth a try. I'm not as sure as you that psilocin / psilocybin are actually involved in the HSR; I think it's just as likely that it's the increased trp flux that improves heat tolerance through downstream components, and the increased psiloc* levels are just a simple consequence of more trp. Regardless... the question is how to actually translate this idea into a selective program. This is where I have to do more reading, as my experience is that this is quite organism-specific. I think the most ground would be covered by multiple cycles of mutagenesis-growth-selection, but the specifics of mutagen and selective pressure are very hand-wavy right now. But in summary -- nice find!

      Ouch, glad you're ok. I've worked in both microbiology and cell biology labs. In micro they flame and don't use gloves. In cell biology they use gloves (and a shitload of 70% EtOH) and don't flame.  Never the two shall meet -- I've been reliably told that a Class II cabinet + fire => a very bad time.

      Ha you have a knack for finding these cool things.  Apt username!  Do you know if they've published anywhere?  If it's the E field alone that's doing it, that just might be practical to manipulate for a hobbyist.  If it's the current though, that'd be more of a pain.

       I posted this in an old thread of mine, I was hoping for a quick answer but got none, just cuz I need to figure out what I wanna do with these, so I'm posting it here to hopefully get a response, thanks in advance.  I made some BRF/water sort of "pucks" to use as an agar substitute when I was waiting to get my actual agar, just to use up the last bit of a B+ syringe, and they are fully taking over and running the plate/jar.  I took wedges and isolated some from them and I don't really have a purpose for em now, but I hate to waste great looking, un-'tammed myc, actually it's aggressive, it's climbing the underside of the lid, very rhizomorphic, it looks like it wants to fruit, so I'm thinking...  If it is able to fruit, they will be tiny, as the BRF water was only 1/2" deep(the myc is up to 3/4" thick), but they would have to have an aggressive set of genetics to fruit from a culture medium, and would be very clean, as it's in the 1/2 pint jars(GE w/micropore, SHIP).  So if I cloned the biggest fruit from the medium(if it fruits) I would have something that, when spawned properly to bulk, could fruit with vigor as the BRF jars are a thin medium and genetics that are able to fruit from that would have to be aggressive, at least that's what I'm thinking, I got the idea from reading something on another forum about fruits from an agar culture that someone was cloning for this purpose.  I don't know if this theory is correct, I'd like advice on it, whether or not anyone thinks it'll fruit, and mostly the question, How do I get em to fruit, do i open the jars in a tub? Or would they fruit eventually in-vitro? THX  Oh, and how long would these be viable, they're a month old now.
