  1. Here are pictures of a couple of my cakes from my SGFC and just wondering if the white fuzz is good or bad... I birthed the cakes a few days ago and they were already growing fairly large mushrooms as well as pins so I went ahead and followed thru the rest of the steps because they smelled like healthy mushrooms to me, nothing bad. Some cakes have very healthy looking pins coming out, a couple of the more mature ones got bruised large shrooms I had to force out of the jar a little and they didn’t detach from the cake so I just left them thinking maybe they’ll get even bigger. Now they’re fuzzy
  2. I have a jar that has completely colonized on the outside just the other day and I want to know how long until I can dunk it and birth it? it is a 125ml 1/2 pint jar
  3. So I have a small macro type experiment I wanted to do and it deals mainly with casing and the expectant results from such methods. What I’ve done is fully colonized a 4 oz. container (small I know for sake of speed) and then prepare with a 12 hour water dunk and as you can see a light casing of peat spaghum and some spent coffee ground mix on approx half of the cake. I’m hoping to be able to see some real benefits/disadvantages for going one way or another. As it stands now tho I’m getting some very different myc growths depending on which side you look at. Now this is where your more experie
  4. So my question is this if I take one cake and inject (4 different varieties) of psilocybin cubensis what will the resulting outcome be? Will it eventually fruit only one variety that was ultimately genetically stronger or will so many recombinant mycelia families be produced that the cake will fruit several “mutant” and “new” mushrooms that can be isolated and cloned on agar and sold eventually as my very own?Or a third possibility is the mycelium networks will create a patchwork of “fiefdoms” that produce fruiting bodies of the original genetic variety? Also could someone explain why the
  5. Just a fun true story that happened a couple years back. Any similar expieriences?? So it's my first grow and, of course, I'm doing a BRF cake tek. You know, the one with the perlite and holes. Anywho, a few weeks after dunking I wasn't getting pins. My cakes were dried out. Ego: deflated. I got pissy, put them in a trash bag, and threw them on my porch. A week or two passes. I come outside one day and see the bag I forgot. Upon picking it up to throw it away I feel something soft in the bag. Sometimes nature knows best.
  6. I have a set of cakes that will be ready in a few weeks and I want to go off my pf tek course and try something different with a few cakes, ten per chamber seems too crowded anyways. Any suggestions? Would they survive in my garden perhaps? Should I try a bulk grow tek? Which I plan to move to, in the future anyhow. They are GT.

  8. Hey everyone I'm starting over, on my posting methods among other things, now that I have a flush or two down from a few diff cakes I still obv consider myself a scrub at cultivation but not so blindly stupid to the terms and teks and how it all comes together. Any input on this topic should be constructive or feedback of experience, as I am in an ongoing learning process, like many of you(no dinosaurs pls I don't want to hear about what ur 20 year old Tek did for you on one rainy weekend years ago. If ya gotta be negative, at least make it something to work with! Now that I have completed the

    Contaminated?

    Hello Everyone, I hope this post is in the correct section of the forums, but given this is my first post I'm not %100 sure. If not I'll happily create a new thread in the correct area if someone would kindly direct me to said area. With that out of the way I come to you seeking aid. This is my first attempt at cultivating mushrooms, and I have one jar that's developed a dark discoloration at the very top of the cake. It appeared about a week ago and has slowly claimed the upper 1/5th of the cake. I can't tell if it's contamination, dead mycelium, or natural discoloration of the mycelium
  11. What's up everyone! Let me start off real quick to inform everyone this is my first post, so bare with me please. Been studying, studying, and studying some more. Just want to clarify on a few steps while I'm doing it. No point to not ask for help if there is some out there right?! I'm doing these methods because I want to see what works for a single fruiting chamber and I didn't want to risk contaminating all my cakes. So I went and bought some 2 liters, tubaware containers, and a few others. There is so many do's and dont's on cultivation and it's confusing the hell out of me. I only ha

    First rodeo

    These are the first jars I’ve ever made.. First bags as well.. new to this site but it looks cool. If anyone can see anything wrong with what I’ve got going on please let me know.
  13. so i have finally got some growth in my FC and am very excited but i noticed today that one of my mushrooms have some weird stuff on that cap of it. not sure if its anything to be concerned about or not. i have looked all over the internet to see if its mold or not but cant seem to find anyone who has the same problem as mine. here is a pic of what im talking about.
  14. so my jars where colonizing really good for the first 2 weeks. but then when they hit 100% colonized they seem to have stopped growing. this jar has been fully colonized for almost 2 weeks now and it looks the same. the mycelium does not look any thicker. the temp for my jars have been right at 75 F the whole time. should i just birth the cake and see what happens? i feel like the mycelium does not have a good enough hold of the substrate and will just fall apart when i take it out. any suggestions on what i should do. here are some pics.
  15. Is it possible to switch from pf tek to the bulk dub tub method with already colonized bro cakes? is it recommended?
  16. Here are a pictures of a couple cakes I am growing I noticed this round all the mushrooms seem to have a white shell over all of them almost like a protectant of some sort you can clearly see in the picture wondering if anyone has any ideas thank you. Here's another picture of 1 I grew same condition and environment but y does this one have no outer shell? Any tips would be great thank you.
  17. I have some Liberty cats that should be starting to pin anytime this seems to be the point in the cultivation that I experienced the most problems with, if any of you could give me a tip just by looking at the pictures I would appreciate that if it need more detail I can give you all the information in the about the set up I'm running, I have a full time job so I had to buy this automated system. on the right are some Amazon's that have been producing just fine, on the left are growing Liberty caps that for some reason smell and look a little off for some reason.
  18. Very thin layer of a manure based substrate casing. Really excited to see how these come up (B+). So.....should I mist and fan or just leave it alone?... (Thanks MushMouth!)
  19. I had 2x nicely colonized BRF jars so before I left on vacation and I crumbled them into some field moist sterilized substrate made of cpoo, verm & hardwood mulch. I used a 6QT tub lined with a thick black plastic bag. Here are the results after about 12 days. This is an experiment and I'm a noob so please keep that in mind.... My whole point in doing this was to see if I could make a bigger "cake" (its now a 4" x 13" x 9" brick) out of the 2x much smaller BRF cakes.... It looks like its working... is this fully colonized or should I give it some more time? le
  20. In a rush I used old sauce jars where the neck narrows up to the lid slightly, so the myc cakes cannot slide out freely, does anyone have any experience or advice for this (besides get new jars for next time) ? Im thinking if they wont come out to just follow the old McKenna Brothers method and just put pasturized soil on top and see what pops out, as long as i can get one good cap to make a spore print with I'll be happy (i started with old, dried caps from my gf and worked like a MF'er to get some mycs going, took a while but its going now). Also, new to the site in general but look forwrd t
  21. Hello gang! I am wondering if there is a 'use-by' on spore prints once you receive them? how soon after they arrive should I be inocculating? is it an issue to leave them a few days or is there some storage technique I should know about? Thank you in advance anyone who takes time to answer !
  22. I was wondering if my cake looked like there was more pins on its way? cause I have only had the two since ive birthed it which was 2 am on the 20th. The pins started in the jar so I birthed it but they haven't grown a lot since then, why are they growing so slow, should they be bigger after two days?
  23. I innoculated the jars on the 20th of sept within alacabenzi lc it is now the 9th day, I innoculated straight downwards into the Substrate because I didi not know you were supposed to inject it to drip down the glass, there is healthy mycelium growing on one part but at the bottom there is some yellow orange, Is this bacteria or is it just early mycelium metabolites?
  24. I innoculated some jars with some Alacabenzi Liquid culture syringes and one jar that has some healthy Mycelium growing at the innulation point downwards but when you look at the bottom it has some yellow/Orange color on the bottom of the jar in the middle that is the size of a quarter It is just plain substrate though, is this early Mycelium Metobolites fighting a contaminent or is it a contaminent?
