Welcome aboard friend!

I hope you get some success out of those jars and the LC. I don't have any advice on the ksss, I'm sure the growth parameters can't be too much different from any other cube. Good luck!

Peace

Welcome to Ology! 

 

We all learn by the mistakes we make and it is the best way to learn. Your jars are looking good and you got this. As far as a vendor our forms sponsor is source of spores and i would highly recommend them.

On my first go I didn't put any holes in the lid till after cooking them. I may as well unscrewed them and farted into them. The results would prob be the same. So I switched to poly but I seen this tek using hi temp silicon and tyvek  to make auto healing inoc points does anyone currently use this method or is it old skool by now? Also what's you guys opinion on using wax paper as a casing layer? Have you heard of this? Or did I mis understand something?

Yeah its old school, but it works good. Although, clear 100% silicone adheres better than RTV high temps stuff. Plus, being clear makes it easier to find the hole in the lid. And, its cheaper.

One little trick I learned is that if you put black silicone on the bottom and clear silicone on the top you will you see a black dot through the clear silicone, which will give you something  to aim for when inoculating.

Oh ok. I've used lids with just a hole stuffed with polyfil for grain jars, it works just fine.

I've have some jars with the synthetic filter disks for gas exchange, and the poly works just as good if not better. Plus, its easier and cheaper.

Getting back to the strains, now remember this just me,

OI: While throwing out majestic fruits had  a lot of body load

KSSS: Fast pinner (7 days), nice ride like from all of the Asian strains strains that I have grown. Nice canopies, but they were surprising light in wait.

TC: IME and that of a personal friend there were dissappointing. Nice sized fruits, but just very many of them.

Creeper: I have never grown them; I understand that they are slow, but worth the wait.

BTW I love all of the Asian strains with the exception of Burma and Pink Buffalo. Both of which just didn't do well for me.

LOL!

 

The best thing about using Tyvek with a silicone SHIP is that you can noc in open air. No GB needed.

Going to make new lids with ur method it makes perfect sense to not inoc through those ports. Thinking of ordering those plugs tho.  You said clear on top and black on bottom right? I got the tyvek today b4 work.

Yes. But, if you are only making a few lids, then using just clear save you a couple of bucks by not buying two tubes of silicone.

I don't know why that image keeps popping into my posts. I have tried several times to edit it out, but to no avail.

It's OK about the pic just a reminder of what I want lol I'm gonna be here awhile I'm new but experienced. I'll be reusing my lids so I want to built the best ones I can. Where would you recommend buying p.cable plastic bags cause I think in the long run that's where I'm heading.

I still rock the poly filled holes, have never had a tam in the jar. I just have so many from the get go I continue to use them, every so often I replace the poly fill. As long as they don't fail me I'll continue to use them, lol.

I hope the new ones work out for ya!

The bottom looks a little too wet.

I would recommend shaking it to distribute the moisture. But, you filled it too much, so you don't have room to shake it up.

Best size hole for under the tyvek if I only want one of them?  And should it be the same for both qrt. And pnt. Lids?

      That is a decent amount of time. Honestly I couldn't say. I would just let it do its thing since you have more stuff going. Sometimes they like to be difficult lol

      Beautiful trays, mm!!! 
    • magicman
      It's harvest and printing day for the Leucistic GT tray Before prints   After prints were taken   I cut these with a knife again, but I had some extra casing so I did re-case this tray over the stumps.   Total harvest on a cookie sheet   This tray filled almost all 5 trays in the dehydrator, almost as much as the 4 GT trays combined

      I think that's just some old vermiculite I missed while scrapping it off, it looks like the stuff I scrapped off earlier. It's been 16 days since I dunked it, how much longer do you reckon it'll take?
      Thanks for your help by the way
