    NEW GROW

    Hey everybody so I just got my PE spawn transferred to my substrate and my Puerto Ricans. After it colonizes, what should I expect fruiting to be like for these? I'm worried about the PE because I've seen so many blob and mutate. Is there any way to ensure that doesnt happen? As for the Puerto Ricans how do they fruit? These strains I'm unfamiliar with. I have an Albino A+ tub going but not well at all. I'm thinking that they got vert and I've quarantined the tub. They are growing short and super fat and there is just a few in the tub. Any advice or extra info would be helpful
  2. Hey guys. Some I'm running a monotub of penis envy for the first time. These things have been weird from the start. I have a 56 qt tub with 3 2 inch lower holes on the longer sides and 2 2 inch higher holes on the smaller sides. Spawned to Coco. Some of the caps are cracked and now the mycelium is turning blue. I hope this is just bruising and not trich. Any opinions?
  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. 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

  7. So I just noc’d up 4 rye berry jars with a spore syringe of penis envy. Reading a lot of conflicting info re this strain. What I’ve taken away from my research is: PE colonizes (time) just like any other cube PE likes more substrate moisture than other cubes. PE fruits slower than other cubes. Type of substrate nutrient & FAE has a lot to do with how big they get. Otherwise they fruit small. PE like more FAE. Is the above accurate or a culmination of BS?
  8. I thought these would have a fatter base.. They looked promising when they pinned but then got really skinny. And as always, thanks guys. Also, is there any problem with quality if they start to produce spores, other than becoming black?
  9. Hey community, I've been growing some PE mushrooms and I think it's time to harvest my second flush. Wow.. these things got a lot bigger. I have a couple questions. Any insight is appreciated: 1) Are these mushrooms ready to pick? Most of them have knots on the stamen and the cap has a white ring around the edge. 2) How about the shrooms in the second pick? If they still need time to mature, but others are ready.. is it ok to pick some of the shrooms and not the entire flush at once? Thanks!
  10. Hey Everyone, Thanks so much for all the great info. Made my first ever grow super easy and looking forward to many more. I have a couple questions and I'm hoping someone can answer. Really any insight or info will help! Questions correspond with the pics accordingly. 1) I included a pic of my first flush of PE mushrooms. Is it normal for them to all grow on top of each other like that? Any glaring problems or things that look like I could have done better (ie more FAE, less humidity, more light, etc..) 2) See how some of the shrooms have dark blue stamen.. Are those okay to eat? I think I know what happened, but could be wrong. I left them out in direct sunlight for a couple hours, also in a room that got down to 60F. Came home and they were all shriveled up.. some of my biggest so far too. 3) Some of the shrooms had these busted caps. I read this was can be caused by lack of light (hence why I put in direct light.. I know, stupid impatient mistake). Are they okay to eat? Is that in fact the case? Any other info would be greatly appreciated! Just want to learn as much as possible before my next grow.

    What niidaho has been up to

    Hi guys haven't did a thread lately so figured I would throw one up to share what I have been up to .this isn't a grow log per say but I'm hoping to add to it.the pans jams and Jalisco are def hard ones so may just be sharing what I think went wrong . I would like to thank don shadow for the Jalisco and I think the pans are mush flush Guadalajara I think are from Houston maybe it was printed in a jar I was skeptical but works a treat. been awhile and I don't keep names for security.if I got it wrong yell and I will credit you. Jalisco from spores Pan jam a sector transfer and pe pan jam and pe as u can see I have malt particles like usual! I have tried letting it sit in 24 hours straining it and still it falls out of solution! It works well just harder to spot tams .pepan jamsoakridgeaa+ Guadalajara from multi spore grow . I know it's not great ! I'm working on my greenhouse and wasn't getting enuf evaporation.second should be better .this was the strain of my first experience with mushrooms .they were great .laughed my ass off.u can see I loped off some tops for prints . First time using oats so I would love some input on moisture.they are cheaper then birdseed and prep is a breeze.
  12. So I started the fruiting process a few days ago. This first flush has been coming in rather haphazard with some large ones starting early and little pins everywhere a few days in. I understand that is sometimes normal and it's the second flush that's most often a "canopy" type situation but I'm just not sure when to start harvesting these suckers. Another problem is that I've found no clear guide as to when to harvest PE. I've heard to harvest just the as veils break a little, when you see the white line around the veil, when the shaft gets wrinkly near the gills, and when the gills become dark (hard to see that in a tub)... which of these should I go with? All of them? Should I pick them individually as they mature or wait and pick them all at once? Any help you guys could provide would be supper appreciated! Thanks!

    Open's PE Grow

    Hey Everyone! So its been a few months since I had a log going. Just got my hands on some new strains. Strain: Penis Envy Grain type: Red Milo Grain + Jar prep: Rinse and boiled red milo for 45-60 mins. Took off heat and put in drainer for 1 hour or till grains are cool and dry. Jared Without Verm. Tyvek suit Jar lid. Liquid Culture : Malt & Kero
  14. 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.

    Back to the lab again

    Well here we go again another round of jars made, pressure cooked and then inoced in my Ghetto Flow Hood. These jars are round one I have round 2 Pc tonight will inoc tomarrow. These jars are Cambo Mexican T2 and one Z strain. I just threw them in my new fancy incubator.....It's my new desk drawer. Now I will wait until tomarrow for the second round of inoc. Until then I will be cussing my jars and hopeing for the best. Btw at least 2 of these jars before I used them this time had contams in it lets see how this grows.

    My PrEcious!!

    YESSSSSSS!!! Please sir, can I have some more? This is from a friend. A pin on agar, then cloned and isolated. Simply the best PE culture, as far as myc running, i've worked with. We'll see how it plays out. Im thinking happy thoughts!

  18. Hey man, everyone fails. Here's a PE tub that's been in fruiting for fucking ever. Don't stress your fails, it happens to everyone, all the time. Bask in my failure! All those mush will shrivel up to practically nothing. I fucked up somewhere, but, please, ask me how many fucks I give. I dare ya. I want every new cultivator to know...THIS SHIT HAPPENS..it's all part of the yin and yang. This kind of shit either lights a fire under your ass, or you move on. Either way you are a winner. If you let these mush get you a little posterior discomfort, then they win. And I'll be goddamnshit fuck ass motherfucker if I let some fungus make me unhappy. Cause then I eat em, and I win. HA HA HA fuck you, you call yourself a cubensis? Pussy ass, no fruiting bitch...meet the great outdoors you time wasting asshole! See how easy and cathartic that is? Mush on my friends!
  19. Hey what's up guys.. This is my 1st post on this site, as it's my first time really coming here.. I've read several threads & decided to join since I finally got my new grow initiated & I'm working with a new strain, which has me feeling like a newbie again.. I've got several successful bulk grows under my belt, but it's been about 3 years since I've done anything, & now I'm working with PE uncut, & it's even more confusing, cuz it's not just PE, it's a hybrid.. Basically what I'd like to know is what the best substrate would be to spawn my grains to for the best results..? I plan on using coir, cuz I don't have the ability to use h poo this time.. I have 7 qt jars of wbs that were inoculated 2 days ago with a ms syringe, so I'm playing the waiting game, but I wanna figure out my game plan so I'm ready in a couple weeks. Any suggestions on what sub I should use for this strain, or anything about it that could help me achieve better results would be much appreciated.. Thanks!
  20. I'm nervous that the site either sent me different spores then they said they were. This is my first grow and I'm to the fruiting stage. They are pe and peu the mushrooms aren't getting very big and I am not sure if it's because of something I did wrong, the spores I received or if I'm just being impatient. I know they take a long time, but I feel like the somethings wrong. The first one on the right that is blueish is the one that makes me the most worried because it just stopped growing. What do you think? Thanks in advance I got them from sporeworks.
  21. Ok so I made a thread about my 5qt hpoo PE tub that put out 1 super poor flush & just quit.. Well that was the only hpoo tub I had, but from everything I've read, hpoo is the best substrate there is for PE, other than maybe straw.. So the last PE tub that I made (an 18qt) I made with hpoo too (this was before I knew my 55qt was gonna do doo poorly. Now I use a mix of poo, coir,verm, & gypsum) but it finally started fruiting 10 days ago, but only produced 2 pins, & the rest were blobs.. While I got some huge ones, & a good bit all together, I'm worried to death that this tub is gonna stall out now.. It hasn't produced any more pins & it seems the 2 it did produce are stalling.. The tub is healthy & only 31 days old since it was made.. Am I just freaking out? Or is there a chance that my spawn has been stretched too far? This tub was started with 2nd generation spawn so I don't see why there would be an issue.. Please help me figure this out
  22. Ok, so I've come to the conclusion that I have regular PE & not PE uncut, which is what I ordered.. But nevermind that.. The reason I made this thread, is because I have a bit of a dilemma.. Since I've never grown PE before, all this 2-3 weeks from day 1 of fruiting to pinning has got me feeling blind.. Especially with the casing.. The myc is colonizing the casing as if it were substrate.. Which I've heard is normal for PE but what I wanna know is, is the mycelium gonna have to devour the entire casing before it pins? I'm gonna post pics below of the tubs as of right now, so u can see what I have & share your thoughts.. This is the oldest tub day 12 This mono is on day 7 & these two 5 quarts are on day 6..
  23. Just got everything ordered and will be starting this log later this week. I have several goals with this log. Here are a few of them. [*]Liquid Cultures [*]WBS Grain Spawn [*]Construction of Indoor Green House [*]Comparison of Bulk Substrates [*]Spore Printing [*]Possibly exploration into strain isolation on agar depending on what I can get going on here Looking forward to getting started, can't wait to get the stuff in!
