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.

      After mixing together a bunch of wbs jars with substrate,I underestimated how much it would make, I've been trying to do away with the big monotubs because it's hard to hide so I've been doing bags ,well I ran out of spawn bags so i put the remainder of my spawn in 4 one gallon ziplock bags that i cut a hole in and taped tyvlek to. The problem is the substrate is 4 inches thick in these one gallon bags . I let them colonize for 12 days, during the spawn run the mycelium went nuts , it even grew through the tyvlek patch , its strong and healthy looking growing up the sides of the bags , and it's already pinning. The thing is  I cant  possibly see how it could work with the bags being so full of substrate , I was just kind of rushed and didnt want to waste anything so I threw it in bags not really expecting it to work . The bags are so healthy looking I hate to throw them out , but I'm not sure what to do . Any suggestions? Two of my bags are just verm and the other two are cmc, coir ,and verm... any help would be greatly appreciated ... thank you

      I just ordered the 23 quart presto pressure cooker. Does anyone use this type for sterilizing jars or bags? I’m thrilled that I can start doing my own substrates now but I’ve never used a PC before is it pretty easy?

      Pulled a gallon bag of substrate out of the freezer.   I'm going to spawn some of the Jalisco jars this next week.   See what happens.

      So today was a busy day! Transfered ropey strands from the fully colonized GT and KSSS bags to Petri dishes, really hope that some beautiful ropey myc comes of it.  Dycorotic and rizomorphic growth is beautiful.Just a quick peek of a Thai strand going into the dish before we finished up there and went on to start setting up the tubs to spawn to substrate 1 to 3 ratio. This is the Golden Teacher just placed and not spread out yet, ready to be foil wrapped and moved into incubation for 10 days.Volcano at around 10 days and will be getting the casing put over as well today along with two others to be shown later on this day. A wonderful picture of the inside of the greenhouse with what we have started and growing bigger everyday lol. And the final picture showing the humidifier and fan in working order. Would always be welcome to any ideas or different ways to look at things in getting them to grow better! Thank you
