Spawn bag questions NOOB

Recommended Posts

Iamchefmo

Hello I am very new to mushroom cultivation. I believe I am doing a good job so far I just wanted some insights/tips from some more experienced growers. I knocked up my spawn bag about 3 weeks ago, saw first signs of mycelium on day 13 or so. I believe now I am about 50% colonized. I did an initial shake after inoculation and another shake when I believed it was around 20% colonized. I used 5ccs of golden teacher spores. The mycelium looks healthy but thin in some spots. Also I had a few questions about incubation temps/ lighting. I have been moving it back and fourth from a tote by my ground heater that usually stays around 75 to a shelf on my closet that is a little cooler. I ultimately want to make sure this bag does not fail, this is my third attempt. I have uploaded pictures of my progress.

Like @Sonshyn. Said u don't have to worry about light at all try and keep between 75 and 80 looks like u are on your way .

Thanks for your replys . I also was worried about the condensation, seems to be kind of wet on the walls of the bag. Smells like straight mushrooms no signs of visible contaminations. I plan to spawn this bag some time next week.

That is due to a phenomenon known as dew point. The air in the fruiting chamber is much warmer than the plastic of it. This causes the moisture in the air to condense on the walls. Like brining a cold can of soda outside during the summer.

the goal is to cool the air in the fc to about that of the plastic. 68-72 degrees. 

Condensate almost always indicates temps too high

Makes sense. So do you recommend that I put the tote away from the heater so it falls back to room temperature? I know contams are higher risk at higher temps but I also read it promotes healthier mycelium and faster colonization times. I thought I'd give it a shot since my other bags failed on the shelf

Oh I apologize I was confused as to which thread I was commenting in. My last reply was about actual fruiting chambers and conditions. You are incubating. You need to maintain 77-80* air temperatures during incubation but do not sit your bags directly on a heating source.

Learning a lot reading your posts keep it up.

I have them in a tote on the floor next to a space heater but I moved it to my closet I will let it finish colonizing at room temp before spawning to my substrate. I will keep updated. Also what to expect for yield? Hoping to get a few dry ounces at least. I guess the bags and substrate have enough moisture for 3 flushes.

      I've got mine fruiting next to my GTs hopefully they come just as beautiful!! How long did it take you to see pins on the albino? I've had mine in fruiting conditions for 3 days got some hyphal knots going but no pins yet! Good job on yours! You are now the object of my envy haha

      Hmmm... that makes sense. Wishful thinking I guess lol

      No. By breeding homozygous penis envy x homozygous penis envy would result in 100% homozygous penis envy. By breeding homozygous penis envy x  anything else would result in 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% anything else, as long as anything else was dominant. If it was homozygous co-dominant or homozygous recessive then it would be 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% heterozygous anything else. You would not see the mutation again until you produce more homozygous penis envy. Breeding them back to each other to strengthen it is not a real thing in genetics.

      See? I was thinking the same thing. If you could somehow breed or grow the genetics back to each other to where they both have it then take a baby from them wouldnt it no longer be recessive in the offspring? It should by logic strengthen it and cause it to become common. Then couldn't you take that gene and make it stronger until it becomes dominant?
    • Mush Zombie
      Any homozygous mutation is still a mutation. I’m not sure how to answer your second question.
