  1. I use the vented mushroom bags. I want to get a heat sealer for the top. Opened up all the way it is about 13" and folded it is 8". Will the heat sealers seal ok when folded at 8" with 4 layers of plastic or do I need to have a 16" sealer so it is only sealing 2 layers?
  2. So I'm currently in the process of trying to grow my first batch of Golden Teachers. I did quite a bit of research but not enough i dont think. Also, it seems like everyone has their own style and technique. I will write out everything I've done up to this point and add pics in the end. Please let me know where I messed up. 1. I got sterilized grain bags and injected the spores into them 2. after about a week they were almost completely white so I decided it was time to mix it with the substrate in a monotub I made from youtube using 8 1.5" holes with polyfill and lined with black co
  3. So about mid december i inoculated two grain bags. One contaminated while the other colonized with no issues. I broke up the bag and waited so it colonized again and mixed with bulk substrate on February 7. The substrate has colonized and I’ve been misting and introducing a schedule for light since February 17 but I don’t see any primordia. Am I doing something wrong?
  4. Do mushrooms NEED light when bulking/casing im hearing alot of both sides ?Growing in a monotub 18 x 12 x 12
  5. Hello I am new to this site. I have been cultivating mushrooms since October was minimum success. I have a 5 lb H poo bag that is almost completely my sealant and ready for fruiting I believe I will post a picture it would like some other people's opinions thank you

    Grow kit questions

    Hi there, I am hoping I can get some advice from you guys. I am trying to grow some Mexican mushrooms using a grow kit and grow bag. I have had the bag and kit for a week now and would like to hear your opinions on the following: The kit was delivered to an outdoor postbox and was left for one night in sub zero temperatures (i.e. -1 to -3 degrees Celsius). Would this have an effect on the kit? The instructions said to soak it for 12 hours, but I was only able to do it for 8 as I had to leave and thought 8 would have been better than soaking it for 16-17 hours, is this lik
  7. Golden Teachers, Midwest grow kit, 3 lbs Rye berries, 5lbs Midwest select bulk casing mix (layered) 9 day of colonization (last 36hrs covered with wax paper to start pinning, no pins). Should I wait for the pinning to start under the wax paper or should I start fruiting? and why does it look like crystals?
  8. So I have a crapload of oats, and I love Str0be's no soak, no simmer bag tek. What tweaks would I need to make that tek work with oats?
  9. I bought this bag from a vendor before I decided to make my own grain jars. I nocced it on 2/3. The instructions from the vendor say to basically, "Wait until 1/3 colonized and then mix the ingredients." If anyone has experience with this - do I only mix the bottom part only (the grains) and then when THAT's fully colonized mix with the rest? Or do I mix the entire thing (including the compost mix, which is the darker upper half of the bag). The myc is already spreading toward the compost. Thanks in advance - here's what the bag looks like right now:

    Bag Holder for Innoculation

    From the album: Random

    Had a little problem with contamination while innoculating bags. If the bag is moved at all during the process, it acts as a lung, and will suck bad air into the bag. I've always needed a 2nd set of hands during the process, but this rig allows me to do it solo with no problems!
  11. Hello again OLOGY I have a question for anyone out there watching. Ok I'm being really lazy this week and don't want to make my spawn bags. Does anyone know where I can buy quality pre sterilized bags at. I want to try my hand at a bulk grow.

    Bags. Z tubs. G2G

    Ok so here is my next round of jars I have 5 strains this time A+, ALA, APE, AJAX, PE. I inoced all my jars April 7th. Will post updates as they come. Ooo also I used WBS with verm in the bottom of the jar.
  13. So I came across a whole bunch of Oak wood chip/dust. I have heard that the mush like oak wood so i soak the wood over nite, drained and bagged with Vermiculite The next g2g i did, i just added a little to the Bag. then throw in the incubator on 5/2/15 I really forgot all about it. then went in to put a print i was going to make. and boom. Any ideas about what i should use as substrate would be great!? other wise its coco and coffee grounds.
  14. First time bag grow, can somone gimme some feedback? Pulled the biggies and the mids.. This is the first flush. What to do with the little guys. Will they become part of flush 2? This bag is from a kit, that's why no casing. Should I be misting this a bunch now?

    Hey im new to this forum, ive learned lots so far and am ready to start i think. I have a problem though, ive order syringes from sporeology and my orders been processing for two weeks. Is this normal or should i be concerned?
  21. I did a search and nothing about this came up here on the forums or on Google. Wasn't sure where to post this. Alright so I use a pressure cooker to sterilize my jars, but here's the dealio. I moved to this new apartment because my lease was over and this new place has a glasstop stove. I heard that you aren't suppose to use a pressure cooker on a glasstop stove. I haven't used my pressure cooker in almost a year so I completely forgot how this thing even looks like. I take it out and placed it on the stove and what do ya know, it starts rocking around. The bottom of this thing is convex and

Ocular micrometer eye piece 4. electric light source 5. controls to move stage mechanically 6. both a fine and course focus knob 7. standard interchangeable fitments If I have left anything out please add to the basic list!! Remember this is for the basic beginner microscope. Enjoy! PLEASE READ MZ's post below for other great options. I am going to get what he is talking about for
  23. I'm curious if any members can point towards a reliable source to get presterilized spawn bags or jars ready to go? I dontmwant to take any chances with my first attempt and I have not pirchased a PC yet! Any info would be appreciated! Especially, info on spawn bags or jars ordered before and that had succesful grows. Thanks!!
  24. Hello Ology! This is my first grow log! I have been reading for months but have finnaly reached the point that I have each step running at all times. A little details to help you guys out. First I begin with WBS that is loaded into micron filter patch bags and pressure cooked. I inoculate 3 days after bags have been in the PC. Mix bags after 25% and trayed up at 100%. I then mix them with Coarse verm 50/50, keep covered in closet for 10 days, case with more verm and put into GH The bags are Incubated at 75 degrees in the closed with the LC. The GH stays between 68-73 with ambient s
