  1. Hello! First grow here and using the PF tek, noob yada yada I am 5 nights into the fruiting stage. Been keeping the temp around 72-73, humidity 95-99, 10 hours light/14 hours dark, and a more or less constant supply of fresh air. ~half of my cakes were noc'd with golden teachers, and the other half with tha lipa yai. I have many questions but will keep them concise, and hoping someone with experience can help a brother out since there is an incredible amount of contradicting information on the web about every step of the process. Questions: 1 - Does anything in these pics look like aborts? 2 - Any signs of contamination, or cause for concern? I am noticing tiny spots on many of the lil shroom heads (#1). One shroom head looks hollowed out (#2) and one looks a bit dilapidated (#3) 3 - Any recommendations for speeding up the fruiting of the TLY cakes? Does my FC in pic #5 sound any alarms to anyone? ....7 GT cakes on the left, 9 TLY cakes on the right and bottom center, and then 1 cake top center that I noc'd with both GT and TLY just because I was curious what would happen. (The humidity is down because I had the top off for a bit. ) In general, it looks like the TLY cakes are lagging. In fact. 4 out of the 9 TLY cakes don't have any pins, but it appears the mycelium is taking over the verm from my dunk/roll. I see nothing other than white in the cakes and in the perite. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. While this is my first time, I'm really trying not to fuck it up. many thanks!
  2. Hi, I'm using the PF tek for the Golden Teacher and I happened to get this on one of my cakes. (see pictures) I've isolated it because at that point, the color was kinda subtle and I wasn't even sure if there was a definite color. The plan was to isolate it and see the evolution. But I forgot to take care of it (no water or anything)... and in spite of this, the purple-ish color became definitely purple. Even though it is beautiful, am I looking at the infamous purple mold that can trigger meningitis? Is someone able to tell me what is it exactly please? Thanks
  3. Hey guys, can anyone tell me wether this is contamination or psylocibin? The cake was totally white while birthing and i boiled the water (let it cool ofc) before birthing. Thanks everyone!

    Colorblind needs some help

    Hey Guys, Might be too early but I'll throw these pics up to ask for help with contamination on account of I have some color blindness. This is all one cake, it's one that I have quarantined, since I had issues with early pinning and early birthing. thanks
  5. Hi, I've inoculated Penis envy (PE) in november. First time grower. Cakes were ordered from a popular website (I will do mine next time, but for the sake of giving you the most accurate information) Spores were ordered from a liable source. Light : I gave them light, didn't go for the total darkness for weeks. Something around 12/12, or maybe 10 light, 14 darkness. Temperature : 20 Celsius only for the main part. (68-70 F) Didn't want to put a heating mat under it for different reasons. Took them about 8 weeks to fully colonize and then I got some weird looking mycelium. I know that PE can do blobs, but I can't find any solid information about it, especially on cakes. Smell : When i opened the jar, no smell. After adding some water to get it out more easily, the characteristic mushroom smell came to my nose. Hooray! Am I ok with my thinking "If it quacks like a duck, walk like a duck but smell Psilocibe mushroom, then it is a mushroom" ? Dunking : 20-24h each cake Chamber : made a shotgun chamber with perlite Blobs : I kept a few, dried it and stored it, waiting for any knowledgeable input The others are still on the cakes. A few of them overnight became oddly blue... :/ As we speak, the weirdest jars and/or incomplete colonization are still waiting patiently. Didn't want to put them in the same SG chamber. I have a few things that remain unclear to me : 1) what can I possibly do with a stalled jar ? (I know that I should use with mouth mason jars btw, bought some for the next experimentation) 2) What am I looking at ? Is it PE, could it be something else? What do I do with the blobs? 3) Do you consider blobs as mycelium or as mushrooms? I've read that a shocked mycellium can become blue temporarily, but what about a blob getting dark blue overnight? More pictures to follow soon (featuring dark blue color that came out.... out of the blue) badummm tssss Thanks for your help

    BRF cakes poser

    Ok so I decided to do some cakes to keep me busy. I used BRF course verm and distilled water. I only put 4 holes all along the edge then wrapped with all foil. Pc 15 psi 90 minutes. Let cool over night then inoced with pes Hawaii. I used around 1cc per jar. I have 4 jars going I put them all in my incubator at 77 degrees. Hope these come out well. Any tips will be greatly appricated. Thanks again in advance. Mm I hope I can follow your tek. Also when I get home after work I will take new pics to show the tops of the lids.
