    After two years without growing, I’m finally starting some small grows. Lots changed, I used to have an entire room dedicated to fruiting and a closet for incubation. I’ve moved and have nearly no space to do anything, have had to be creative just to find a space to keep my current supplies and SAB. oh and I got rid of nearly all my supplies before my move. My pressure cooker is pretty much the only thing I kept. I inoculated an agar jar on 8/19 from an AA+ spore print. Today I transferred a small piece to more agar and used the rest to inoculate three grain jars. The grain is wheat berries. Never used it before but I wanted to give it a try. Also just for fun, I cloned a couple two year old dried fruits. I transferred each of these today to new agar. Burma: and Ecuador:
  2. So me and the bro's were talking ( @mushmouth @thekaratekid @DamionDeamon) and decided to have a grow off. I happened to have an AA+ print from a fine cultivator in Croatia which was the perfect size to split four ways. The rules are very simple, and the parameters will be flexible as we go along. THIS WILL BE A SKILL BATTLE! There is no hard and fast rules in fungus cultivation, so there won't be here. We'll all try and keep on the same timetable. There are TWO solid rules: Rule The First: Though shalt all use the same print Rule The Second: Though shalt all use a 6qt dub tub for fruiting. (KK is a cheap ass ho ) Parameters are as follows so far: We all agreed to a span of time for AGAR WORK. This will be flexible to a point. We've all inoculated, so as soon as everybody has some growth, the agar time will start. Once time is called there will be three weeks for agar work. No rules, no limits. ONCE TIME IS CALLED AFTER 3 WEEKS, we all go to grain...That's when the fun starts. We will use however many jars, whatever fucking grain, doesn't matter. The only time limit is for the agar work... You may be asking yourself, "What's in it for me? Sounds like a fucking dorky circle jerk" Well, you may be correct, but the winners in this contest will be Ology. We will throw out little mini contests over the course of this where you can throw your two cents in and win a prize. There will be a Winner of this Battle in each of these categories: A: Cracker dry weight, first flush (of course) B: Best Looking Flush ( by member vote) C: Biggest Single Fruit (by weight) D: TBD ( maybe the community comes up with it?) Please, I know y'all are enthusiastic, but no memes or retardedness in the reply section. That being said don't be afraid to comment, but just know that from time to time there will be a clearing of comments to keep the continuity of the contest clean and easy to read. Mini contests will be separate threads that are pinned here for a short time, until a winner is determined, then deleted. I hope everyone in the community has as much fun as us. I wouldn't complain if this becomes a regular thing. NOW GENTLEMEN, START YOUR AGAR! LET'S KEEP IT CLEAN.... FLUSH THAT MOTHERFUCKING MUSH!!!!
  3. 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 rant part; into experiments, recent, ongoing, or soon tbd. Hope many can learn thru my mistakes and vice versa maybe a tip or two along the way will save a strong flush or revamp a thought to be dead sub. Started with Pf Tek (brf cakes) Used PC 90min lowtemp Reliably sourced syringes Initially started noccing jars late Sept/October randomly thru January. Used space above fridge and top of the dark side of my closet when they started overfilling. Think we nocced close to 80 jars(pints) had issues with air inside, had mold removed, got a purifier hepa type for the house. I imagine I will not lose as many to Tams or failed nocc next time but I probably threw away 30+ jars of the 80 being unexperienced. realizing later, 10 or so of the tossed ones we're probably fine, just being too cautious at the time. Had to mix diff strains in sgfc's based off what was 100%noc first..so confusion was caused there somewhat but good for experimentation nonetheless. Today, there are 15p.e ready to birth, 4 Ecuador to break and dunk, a couple tams on the ones that saw decent fruits already dunked those last night in distilled with a splash of h202, I use iso and perox alot trying to find it's capabilities with myc, gonna set a planter up on the patio for contammed cakes, also getting 3 fresh 44qt FCs in the Martha. Last weekend I got everything I think I need to get subs and casing for bulk started, good brand wbs, no corn, no sunflower, fresh pack of coir lime etc who wants to help me smash out these PEs or advice on anything else so far, will post lots of pics and be more detailed in my future posts, without dragging on, guess this can be the start of my amateur grow log, pics are the first fruits from cake 3 in Martha posted below. B+ Setup basics: Sgfcs or the like in a Martha. 44qt tubs, 3-4" perlite strained lots of holes of course, was playing with polyfill and then leaving some open, for the totes I'm putting in today, will be trying plastic micropore tape(2 layers on bottom holes ,1 layer on lid holes, playing with 1-2layerson side holes, have small random spots of perlite fuzz recently, one light greenish a couple purplish, a grayish cobwebbyspot, going to bleach spray Martha and put everything clean back in later. Regarding perlite tho, have read where you can just strain it thru tap water..done that, the FC I prepped last night had the perlite strained then soaked in peroxide and water for a few hours then I restrained at sink and dumped in, also saw German guy talking about pressure cooking it hAha just too much shit. What to do next..

  5. Hello folks, So my shrooms are getting very large and they are about to finish, they are very white mushrooms even though they have a darker zone near to the cap. This seems ok, but now I am noticing that there are little pins in between the large ones that ar blacker and make me think maybe they are aborting as the cap is growing darker. I took one out, I fear it is indeed an abortion and that contamination can happen. I´ll attach a couple of photos for you guys to check (you can see the little one has a darker cap than the ones on the first photo.

    Multi strain, mono-tub madness

    Title Kinda states it all, Have multiple strains Knocked up By MS, bad weather destroyed all my cultures so i am restarting. Should all be ready to go in 2 and 3 weeks. Using WBS and Rye grains to look at differences in times and potency, takein the golden teacher to Agar as too the MS syringe is tamed. 66qt tubs, not much more to be said at the moment either than, this will be a large grow and will start posting pictures of progress for educational purposes when my master jars are about to be G2G. i have 16 master jars and plan setting them all to 10 jars (160 Qts of spawn). lets see if we can get pans to run strong in a mono, thats really all i care about, spore prints of the cubes will be available for trade or just for fun , Pans are up in the air as to experimental on my part Ask questions ill answer to the best of my ablity if your curious, until then, you wont here back from me happy trails

  8. Two dub tubs, one is coir/verm the other coir/verm and 5% worm castings. Recipe was 1 quart spawn, 2 quarts coir, 1/2 quart verm for the first tub. the recipe for the other tub was the same but with 1/2 cup of worm castings added for a 5% total of the bulk substrate.

    Hey guys things have been growing well for me. My lil monos from the other thread are all still producing albeit kinda poorly but I think it's my bad ISO selection and agar work. So mush more to learn in that aspect. I decided to scale up some this is a attempt to fruit Aa+ from a m.s sample in a 72 qt sterilite tub. The Content will be 4 jars of spawn and up to 13 jars of sub. I'm gonna be kinda lazy with it as I go so I'm not sure if you new guys wanna follow along to learn from...this is more for the entertainment value lol. I tend to fail epicly when I fail. Let's begin the tub, no holes yet cause I've got no idea where to put them yet. A normal person would dump 16 or 17 jars of material in there and draw a line, but I'm far from normal. My process lol. I'm gonna take a garbage bag and dump all my jars in it and mix it up. This bag will also be my liner when I'm finished. I'm gonna open them all in front of a flow hood but I question if I really need to do this anymore. I learned a very important lesson "if your spawn is clean you really can't screw this up". OK so while what passes as a f.h in my house is set up I did g2gs on all the jars in case I fail. Now all the spawn is in the bag.so it looks like it takes up about 25% of the space @ about 2.5 inches thick so I'm gonna add about 12 jars of sub it looks like but I'll add 8 at first so I keep my 1:2 ratio I like to use. after 8 jars of sub. Now I've got 2 issues to work out for the future, I think I'm packing my sub too tight in the jars. Secondly one of those jars smells "hot". So I think it didn't sterilize right. It's not a fish or yeast smell it's something else. It's too late now tho I didn't notice till it was dumped. So this is prob a fail already but I'll keep on keeping on. OK so my liner is a lil small but it's no big deal. I cut and rolled it back and it's time for foil.you can't see them but I used a thumb tack to poke a few holes in the foil. Now in hindsight I should have did my holes before I cut and rolled back the bag and added foil but too late. I chose a small hole configuration because I can always make them bigger if needed, and my lid is not air tight. I'll MP them up and set the tub in the room, since it's made outta the same tubs I use as tits it should fit in one like a glove. If not it will just have to sit a lil longer at room temp. I'm kicking myself in the ass guys that one jar of hot sub is gonna ruin this whole tub I think. I spent 2 or 3 days talking to @OpenBar about whether to do a mono or 4 z tubs. And I flipped flopped back and forth for days finally deciding to do a mono tub. But now I have all my eggs in one basket. One of the great things about z tubs is the ability to throw away a bad tub if you have one. I now have to hope my myc can adjust and compete or that by some miracle the bacterial tam ends up beneficial in some way. (Highly unlikely). My predictions at this point. In 10 to 14 days I'm gonna open this up to a stink and a bunch of myc piss. If you wanna learn what not to do just follow me. Check back After my run to see if I can save it.
  11. Seen this little mutant in one of my tubs.
  12. Help Me Please I inoculated 11 jars of substrate with albino a+ and 1 with blue meanie. I let them fully colonize, then sit for about a week, before birthing the cakes. I didn't dunk them, but did roll them in left over vermiculite. Currently, I have them in a growing chamber with about 2 inches of damp perlite, sitting on top of paper towels. The blue meanies started pinning quickly and I've already harvested two fully grown mushrooms from that cake. It's now growing new pins, along with 2 aa+ cakes, but no others show mushroom growth. The temperature stays at roughly 75 degrees (24 c), 95% humidity, and 12 hours on/off of indirect sunlight and LEDs. I allow 30min of FAE about 3 times a day, and the growing chamber has an air filter. All 12 cakes also have a blueish tint, like they've been bruised, but I scarcely touch them, and am sure they're not contaminated. It's been two weeks since I birthed the cakes, so am I being impatient, or has something gone wrong? Thank you in advance for your advice.

    AA+ mono log

    Hello everyone, Its been a very long time since iv done a mono tub so wish me luck, I went with the WBS and Tek that can be found all over the site. I used a bag instead of jars. Strain: AA+ (From fellow user) I did not keep track of time line till today, as just started fruiting . Here are some pics! AA+ LC This pic was about two weeks befor i used it. The bag was totally white. I forgot to take pic. Mixed bag with just coco and coffee, then put in Incubator. This is after 6-7 days I did not case this tub. I did a really heavy spray till pooling.Cut bag down closer. I have a box fan about 3 feets away from it on timer that will go one for a hour every 6hours. I think I wont need to case tub because it has a constant 95%RH. Questions and Comments Encouraged !!

  16. Here are some pics of some pretty AA+ myc. The genetics were from a friend
  17. What's up guys.. I need some info/advice about AA+.. I have 2 tubs that were made the exact same day, with the exact same ingredients & ratios, & they have been in fruiting for almost 17 days now at about 68°, & haven't done ANYTHING! They colonized for 12 days, & are only 18qt tubs, so they had plenty of time, & looked good when I fruited them, but I still haven't got one pin.. I decided to case one of them a week ago, & it hasn't showed any change either.. They both get fanned every 3-4 hours, & misted every other fanning.. I'm just wondering if it's normal to take this long to get pins from this strain..? It's starting to drive me crazy.. If I need to raise the temp, let me know, but 68-70 should optimal.. So what could it be? The sub/myc is thick, solid, & healthy btw.. Not even any bruising nor metabolites.. & I swear there's been knots on there for weeks, but how could they be knots & develop that slow? This isn't Penis Envy. I'm very puzzled with this one..
