  1. hey there everyone, I'll just start out with a little preface: - I'm a complete newb to mycology (even consuming) and am mainly interested in this as a hobby - my background is in technology; software, electrical design, custom circuit boards, robotics, mechanical designs and prototyping, etc A friend of mine asked if i could help him build a system to maximize/standardize growing for consistent and big yield results with a minimum of human intervention. There's definitely lots of ways I can accomplish that, but there's some parts of the puzzle I'm missing. I have done quite a lot of reading so far about bulk and shotgun methods of grow chambers, and that got me thinking about some of the things I'd like to build into an automated fruiting chamber. I'm hoping you, as an experienced community, can give me feedback on what parts of that concept can work, what's unnecessary, and what's dumb and should be avoided. planned automation features: NodeMCU (ESP32 or ESP8266) units for each chamber, featuring air temp/humidity sensor (DHT22), and soil/substrate temp/moisture sensors (D18S20 / ADC comparative circuit), as well as environmental control units. Environmental control will be effectuated with: Peltier TEP on the air intake. Applying voltage causes air to be either heated or chilled depending on the polarity Piezoelectric transducer for vaporizing water in the case that humidity drops PWM controlled LED lights for fruiting stage (not sure what wavelength to use yet) Intake/outlet fans controlled on the a schedule by host server over MQTT with activated charcoal sheeting to address any escaping odors MQTT Enabled host server (Raspberry Pi or other cheap SBC) for data acquisition and aggregation (this will be used to host a web interface displaying sensor data and allow for manual control over environmental devices) Theoretically one rPi server could handle any number of these units physical construction plans: 1x 105qt sterilite tub outer chamber with polyester batting insulation and RTV silicone gasket seals 6x 12.9qt iris storage bins (they all fit when stacked 2x3) HEPA intake and outlet filters using 86889 filters, 120mm fans, and a 3d printed mount for the 105qt bins 50x10mm fans plus carbon filter sheeting for air circulation fans on the 12.9qt bins Let me know what you guys think!
  2. 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.
  3. Salutations everyone, noob here. Can someone give some advice and rate my cakes? Well somewhat cakes, using pf tek method and golden teacher strain. One fat quart jar survived out of the 4 during incubation and it had a lip on the jar so I just had to rip apart my cake to get it out and this is what it ended up being in the chamber. Been about a week since I've plopped these in the fc, but I can't tell if this is some type of infection or just bruising and piss. Started misting and fanning a good 4-5 times a day when first placed in fc, but I've been working alot recently and moved down to 2 mists a day and 3-4 times fanning. Temp stays at 71-75F outside of the fc. Any advice and recommendations are greatly appreciated y'all, mush love.
  4. Here are some photos of my FC. [day 2. after putting the spawn to bed.] Nothing really seems out of place, but there are some small details i want to check. See this dry area? It was larger than the 12" lamp i had center top of my FC. the other thing i noticed was that the center of my FC was getting dry'ish. (-coir turned light brown instead of being dark) i really want fruits growing in the center mass of my substrate bed. That's a measure of success /increases yield? So i did this to my 76 degree F room: Removed the one lamp I had center top. The new lights are much farther away. There are 2 to keep brightness high and the heat transferred to the FC is now much lower. Other than the above mentioned, how is my general condensation?

    Colombian (photos) and B+ cubensis bulked to coco coir/verm/gypsum. After birthing, BRF cakes (brown rice flour cakes - see PF Tek) were left for 2 days in clean water with some gympsum added and then layered with coco coir in small circular plastic pots that can be easily added or taken out of the fruiting chamber as required. My new fruiting chamber is an aquarium with a 6500k grow light. I lined the bottom with prepared perlite and placed a bucket of bottle water in the chamber with fish tank ceramic buublers to increase the humidity and provide FAE (Frequent Air Exchange) There is an air pump pushing air through the ceramic bubblers which can be bought at any decently stocked pet shop. I currently have 8 pots in the tank with another 10 on the way. Second ever grow and its already much improved over the first thanks to SHROOMOLOGY. I will write a detailed tek in full for the third if anyone is interested.

  7. ok this is my first grow log, wish me luck... this grow actually started a month ago and i dont have pics of every step ive taken but i will try to fill in all the gaps as i go. i started with a ms pe syringe i used to noc 10 jars of wbs, once they colonized i used one of the jars for g2g transfers to 8 more jars and the rest were spawned to a mix of coir, verm, gypsum and a bit of lime. these are pics of the first flush...it started with a bunch of blobs and i thought i had verticillium but they cleared up and finished quite nice.
  8. I'll start by providing a little background. this is not my first grow but im still a newb, maybe a dozen grows under my belt. the trays are 12qt. i spawned 3qt of wbs to 6qt of coir/verm and some gypsum. when they were ready i cased with a half inch of 50/50+ and fruited. my humidity runs 80 or so and sometimes it dips low overnight. i mist and fan 3 to 4 times a day. the pins are covered in what looks like mycelium. if i touch it it goes away leaving a normal brown cap. these are pe so i expect odd but this is the second time ive seen this, whats up?
  9. Hi, this is my first post, and I'm not sure if it's in the right forum, so please accept my apologies if I'm breaking any protocols here... but I'm at the stage where I'm trying to fruit and I'm wondering if I'm doing it right. The room is in the 70 degree range, and I have a humidifier running. I leave the lights on all the time, and I'm misting twice a day. I've gone by the book so far, and been pretty successful up to this stage. I cased about four days ago, and I hope I did it right. But I see pictures of your fruiting chambers posted on here, and I wonder if I need something more elaborate. My question is basically, can you see anything wrong with this picture? It's humid in the room, not too warm, and there are holes for gas exchange in the plastic lid-thing. Thanks.
  10. Hey just wanted to post a couple pictures of my auto fruiting chamber. Wanted to get some feedback, see what you guys think about it. It's my first attempt at anything like this. Before this I've only used mist and fan tek. Using a 80qt storage container. Hydroponic rocks instead of perlite. A second container with air stone and mister Got it hooked up to a timer set for every six hours to mist. The air pump is on always. Temp is around 72-81 and rh is always 99 Doing a test run now, wanna do a comparison between this and the mist and fan tek. See if it will perform less just as good or better. Got a tub in there an I have another tub outside doing a mist and fan tek with that. 20151023_002711.mp4
