Welcome to shroomology Clusterfuc#d!

Sorry to hear about your condition, and I hope that we can get you growing to maybe find some relief. Sounds like you have a bit going on and I'm curious as to what strain you went with!?

Feel free to ask any questions that you need to ask as you'll find we are like family around here and everyone is always willing to help each other out.

Firstly, welcome to Ology. :)

And we are like family here with great information. I have read about what you are going through. The help of mushrooms is real for cluster headache and many other thing like ptsd and depression. Micro dosing has helped alot of people but I would encourage you to do research on that and not take my word. But get some spores and grain and get to it man! Ask any questions you got and we will get you going

Flawedprophecy, I have been gathering info on the topic for quite a while. There is research info on nih.gov website, and many other reputable sites pertaining to using hallucinogenics for treatment (experimental) in microdoses. I plan on starting out with quarter gram doses once weekly, and increase if necessary. Thanks for the  welcome and the input!

Mushinist, thanks for the welcome!  I'm starting out with golden teachers. I have heard that they less difficult than other strains for novice growers. I'm more concerned with successful propagation than potency. We shall see I guess?

phish,  I appreciate the response! I never even thought about capsules. Using them would be a great way to administer in measured dosages. 

  My Neuro is trying her best to fix my head, but there are a lot of people in the same boat as me. No, or very little response to a long list of meds. Unfortunately, Neuros can't recommend trying "experimental" treatments, and most people wouldn't even think to go this route unless they looked at a lot of research. I haven't told my  Neuro what I'm planning on doing, but if I have improvement, I will be able to tell her how many mgs I was taking, and how often. Maybe more factual evidence could help someone else. I guess I will see what happens.

  Patience is a hard thing to do.

I practice Chinese medicine.  FWIW I have had some success herbally w/ this condition.  The formula is called Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Tang.  It is not a cure, if it is effective for you you will drink it until there is a cure.  I know most of the big players in my field all over the country (US) if I know a city you can access I might be able to steer you or you can just do a search on your own.

 The first round of pf  tek jars seemed a bit dry, and no growth after 9 days, so i thought I screwed something up. I started fresh jars yesterday making sure the moisture content was better. I checked all the jars (the older ones, and the jars I did yesterday) to temp them and they are holding steady at 74 degrees. While checking temps, I discovered that overnight my "too dry" jars started to colonize., very nice surprise. The rye jars are doing well . No contam yet in any jars yet. SO FAR, SO GOOD.

    Ok, first dumb question... The all in one grow bags( rye,straw, manure) which were in an incubator at 84 degrees are having mixed results.  The higher temp seems to have caused the bottoms to dry out and led to condensation at the tops. One is doing ok so far, but colonization was good in some sections but seemed to stall possibly due to dryness , so, I mixed it  up, and  the mycelium is spreading thru out that bag now.

    The 2nd bag of the same type has less colonization, and the straw layer is showing a small amount of yellow sliminess.

I was wondering if the straw was starting to decay from the moisture oversaturating that layer as the moisture in the rye layer evaporated?

If I disturbed it too much due to my cuiosity and stunted the growth and freaked out the myc.

should I let it alone and see what happens, 

or if it is contam and I should immediately get it out of my house?

  The first jars and  and bags were innoculated  with spores from a supplier who has notoriously clear syringes. The jars I did yesterday were done with syringes from a different supplier, and they were loaded with spores. I will find out how much difference that makes in a couple weeks I guess. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

What recipe did you use for the BRF jars?

Of course you now know that 84 if much too high. You can let the bags sit to see what happens, but at the first signs of color other than white, toss 'em. Pay close attention to the white tammy myc and you'll be able to spot it faster next time.

Lot of conflicting info on temps. Live and learn. Yes found out 84 is MUCH too high!  I was seduced by the promise of faster colonization time. Mistake. Probably contributed to bacterial infection because of it. I used 1,1,2 water ,brf,verm. I mixed the verm and water first and it seemed to wet so I added a bit of extra verm. Mistake. Did the water and brf first this time. Much better. I will stick to instructions I find here in the future, I would rather do it right than try to do it fast...no matter how much I am tempted to take shortcuts. Thanks!

      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.
