Hey guys. Just signed up. First post. Sorry ahead of time if it’s a common/annoying question.  I’m only on my second bulk grow and I see what I think is a potency loss. I grew some GT’s and A++ previously using the jars. My bulks, did B+ and I currently have Nepal chitwans or some shit. Now ive seen on a few searches that GT’s and A++ are fairly decent in “potency charts” better than what I grew in bulk. But I was just wondering if there might be some common errors that you run into in bulk growing that I Might not be aware of that would cause potency loss. I had no contamination from what I seen. Can too much humidity affect anything? Can too low of temps affect potency? Anything....

Low temps are preferred, longer window between pin to veil breaking the better maybe try one the PE varieties

 

68-72 is ideal. Inside the tub or whatever

I’m in HVAC so temps are controlled in a tiny room under my basement stairs that I sealed with poly sheet. I’ve been toying with humidity because it just feels like it’s too humid. I reduced the cycles of the humidifier but then I get worried about not enough air exchange.  I’m just at a loss because I thought doing a bulk grow on manure would have made them at least a little more potent. Or does it not work like that. Does it all have to do with strain?  Like I said I’m a fairly new grower so I might not understand the mycology aspect, among other things. I had an ok 1st bulk grow with about 5.5 oz produced off one tub but I just don’t fell there as good as the cakes. I’ll try PE next I suppose

Harvest right when the veil is tearing for beat potency gram for gram

make it colder in there, the longer the time it takes for the veil to break the more time spent making magic. Once veil breaks mush moves energy towards making spores for next gen 

 

manure isnt going to make it anymore potent just more nutrients for more flushes as opposed to a one flush wonder

      Thanks for the info. So I went on and tried to create 2 jars of LC. One with maple syrup and one with honey. I did them just like the instructions on this forum and was as careful as possible not to get contamination like sterilising the needle after each injection and so on. The jars you see in the picture are for more than 20 days ago if you look really close there are some tiny strings are visible in there but I'm not sure if it's mycelium. And the two jars of grains are a mix of grains and wild bird seed. It's been 5 days since I injected them with spore syringe but there is no sign of mycelium, not even a green mold of contamination. The syringe is b+ from Avalon . I'm thinking maybe I've got pure water inside a syringe. Give me some hope guys it's really frostrating to see the only hope of fun I had is going nowhere.😑😑😑 I don't even care about taking shrooms I just want to see mycelium grow... Btw I've been keeping the jars in a room temperature in the dark of course.

      Now that you have pins I would cut back on the fanning.  When my mush stays small, it's usually a lack of FAE. My setup is ultra low tek. I start sgfc with the holes taped up on sides and top. After I get pins I untape some/most of the holes to adjust FAE. It's kind of bootleg, but it's working for me at the moment. I usually average 3g per cake, per flush.    Congrats on getting those to finally pop.

      Thank you for the library of information & community! Questions regarding the Mush Zombie 60 qt monotub: During the "spawn to tub" (Section 3) 1)Do the holes need to be in place at this point? 2)Would it be ok to have the trash bag fully encapsulate the environment or does there need to be sufficient air exchange at this point? 3)If this is an issue during day 1 of 10 incubation, should one open the tub once a day to provide fresh air, or will it be ok for this 10 day period? The tub is in a 81*F bath (Cold House) & placed inside another tub to float on top. If all is good great, otherwise any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Again!

      I don’t think you’ll be able to post anything without me reading it in Bill’s voice .
