Hi!

Hi everybody, I was put on to this forum by Researcher (also a newish member) and am really digging how well organised the info is here -- thank you all!  Looking forward to digging in and hopefully contributing something useful once I'm a bit less wet behind the ears.

Thanks everyone, and lol DirtBagDan!

Quick question from a newbie, but I'm keen to add some thoughts to Researcher's thread here but can't figure out how -- there's no text box at the bottom of the page.  Feeling very thick; can anyone enlighten me?  :)

I think you just need a couple more posts, in this welcome forum?  I think it is 5 posts then the training wheels are off. :thumbs_up: maybe a mod can correct me.

Aha, thanks.  Thought it would be something like that but couldn't find the rule anywhere.

Sooo.... this was interesting.

Lightning Makes Mushrooms Multiply

Lightning strikes can more than double some mushroom crops, according to ongoing experiments that are jolting fungi with electricity.

Possible commercial applications for growers, also wondered if it would help some of those harder to impossible to fruit indoor varieties??????

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.

yeah the articles where referencing a published paper, might have to dust off that old Leyden jar and use it as a fruiting chamber(:P).;

Improvement of Edible Mushroom Yield by Electric Stimulations

Quote

Pulsed high voltage was applied to logs for mushroom culturing to clarify an effect of the pulse high-voltage
stimulation on mushroom yield. Inductive energy storage system was employed to construct a pulsed power
generator with compact size. Copper thin fuse was used as opening switch to interrupt large circuit current in short
time. Four stages Marx generator was used to supply a large current to a secondary energy storage inductor. The
output voltage of the inductive energy storage system pulsed power generator was 120 kV with 50 ns pulse width at
5 kV charging voltage to the primary energy storage capacitor. This pulsed high-voltage was applied to
sawdust-based block for culturing Lyophyllum decastes and natural logs for culturing Lentinula edodes, Pholiota
nameko and Naematoloma sublateritium as an electrical stimulation. The experimental results clearly showed that
the yields for four kinds mushroom increased to 1.5-2.1 times larger yield by applying pulse voltage as electrical
stimulation.

      Yum, the bottom looks like it's full of bacteria hence the gooey looking grains, and if it takes 2 months to get to that weak looking myc then something is wrong. With GT it should look more like a big cotton ball. 
    • DonkeyHote
      It looks ok to me. I would proceed to the next step of your tek. I assume you're going to mix with a bulk substrate.
    • AmySorg
      So I bought two grain spawn bags (from shroom supply). They took forever to grew the mycelium (almost two months). The first one was very weird so I just threw it away (sadly). The Second one is weird so I'm not sure if I should proceed with it.    There's white all over it but it doesn't look like mycelium but it doesn't look like mold either.    Can you guys help me please? 
    • Sonshyn
      So the tek says you need an oven bag with a blue ship about 1/3 from the bottom  of the bag, and a tyvek patch 2/3 of the way to the top of the bag that you tape on or use rtv.    My my question is it says to cover the patch with foil so the tyvek doesn’t get wet ... so just tape some foil over the patch or???

      The 2 kits I tired had straw substrate. The first kit I had dozens of pins that stalled and one clump that grew quite nice. Big, tall, healthy specimens. I had some mold issues that ruined the 2nd one entirely. The pic I attached was early on kit 1.  Since I bought those kits, I've started reading and researching on this site and a few others. I've now got a few jars of grain PC'd and innoculated. I'm on day 3. I have all the other supplies as well and it cost me less than what the kits cost. HOPEFULLY, I'm on the verge of doing small bulk batches.  Stropharia Cubensis Cuban is the strain that was in the colonized jar that shipped with the kit and I managed to keep some of the spawned grain from it that I've used for the other jars I've started. My own version of g2g, I suppose.  I quite liked the strain, very mellow an warm, not too potent.
