The 7 PF TEK were noc'd 8/17 w/ the last of my Ecuador strain.  The 5 bags were noc'd 6/24 w/ PF Classics, lol I have NO IDEA what that even means.

UPDATE

Checked on one tub and I must have prematurely introduced the grain bag to the sub b/c spawn run was only about 30% so back into the incubator.  I'm guessing the middle of the bag the grains were not yet fully colonized.  I took precaution and checked the tub in sterilized glove box so cautiously optimistic no tam should occur.   Will check back in 2 weeks.

1 tray tam'd out in IC.  Considering I took every shortcut available, (3rd party grain bags, substrate :facepalm:) and my temp issues before making the tubntub IC which I was sure came too late and everything likely stalled, this should not be happening.

Shortcuts d/t lack of confidence, not lazy.  No more, no shortcuts!  I have one bag remaining, (sweet jesus noc'd 6/24), that I loaded into 2 more 6Q tuba w/ substrate I made from the tek and PC'ed 90 min that just went into the IC to check in 10 days.

 

None of the tubs fully colonized maybe that's why pins are all around the edges, except the middle tub.  There's a pin in the center of that one.

Comments/criticisms welcome.  Happy Monday good people  ^_^

Harvested a few.  Not abundant.

I moved some cakes out 2 days after the tubs went to fruiting.  The cakes, like the tubs, appeared stalled and none were fully colonized.  I went ahead and dunked 24 hrs and myc growth started right up.  I have read that if the myc stalls it's game over?  These are from this AM, about 10 days in the SGFC:

I don't know if they'll come to full fruit, but I am impressed w/ the resiliency.  Happy hump day friends.

I think 3/4:1 grain to spawn is the problem with the poor pin set in the tubs. I usually use a 1:3 ratio. Rehydrate and start fanning again.

Keep those cakes moist looking.

Hey Bud - Thanks for the input.  I typoed that ratio incorrectly.  I meant 3-4:1 sub to grain.  I was measuring weight vs volume b/c I was using grain bags so actuals were about 6-8 lbs:2 lbs.  I was chalking up the crap pinset to the age of those grain bags.  They were noc'd late June and moved so many times trying to pin down the temp I was sure they stalled, like I said none of those tubs or jars fully colonized.  I plan to go for a 2nd flush.  If you don't mind, how do you generally dunk those tubs.  I was told a 2 gallon ziplock but can't remember by who. 

Leave the liner in the tub while I dunk?

Recase?

Super appreciative of the feedback!

May have been phish that said that. It will work fine just use distilled or spring water.

You don't have to recase.

At least you got some mush from your tub too after the others failed.

YES it was phish.  I'm feeling the same, total gratitude for any mush from those tubs on my 1st try and slacker efforts.  You guys are really so much help.  If there's a donate button I'd help w/ server costs or whatever.  If there's not I think there should be.  It's a wealth of info. here and education is so rarely free.

I just spray the holy hell out of them for 24 hours then dump off any standing water.

Hey who turned out the lights? 

Tubs were dunked and back in FC conditions.  PF cakes exploded, I'll upload some pics soon.

My tub cakes broke, 2 in half, the other quartered.  Will that be an issue?

Glad to see the place again.

Have a great Tues. good people!

It's strangely addictive, both the hobby and the site.  I'm on my third grow since I started in June and am trying the results for the first time tomorrow.

I never try to anticipate how it will be. Good or bad, if I eat enough of them, I always want it back when it starts going away.

I set up in a cozy spot with my laptop, TV and vape. If I start to feel like I'm going to puke, I just go ahead and do it. Things are much cleaner and nicer afterward.

Also, bring a lot of good, cold water to drink, lol.

      Not sure what your problem is but I am sorry u feel that way!!!
    • mushmouth
      Bullshit. One of your questions was,  "Does spores have magic in them also which makes them stronger?" Not to mention your inability to comprehend many replies.
    • Tripster727
      Lmao i will do that! The other tub is cased.. Just waiting for it to fruit!!! I got a huge ass mono that is almost colonized, im gonna put wax paper on top of the sub so i dont get plastic and what not and use a hot can and melt some holes and use tyvek double maybe triple tyvek unless i can get time n get polyfill or you guys think i can just leave the lid ofd centered and gapped? I can mist and fan if i have to... I will keep y'all posted lmk wat ya think  They do look bare without a casing.... Oh well 
    • rachael47
      Serious about what? I just wondered why they were stronger before the veil breaks. Trying to put things together. I guess it was a stupid question. Sorry
    • phish
      And I stand corrected on the generic Tyvek too Bro ! Lol Forgive the dumb question that I have to ask. You do have a one-hole lid, rubber side down, underneath those Tyvek lids right ?
