  1. I'm 14 days into one of my shoebox grows. It doesn't have a liner, I decided to try two without it and see how it went. The top of the substrate looks snowy white and promising but no real pins showing. I found some growing on the sides which I knew could be a possibility without having a liner. Then, for some strange reason I decided to check the bottom, and to my surprise... Holy Moly!! 😲 I couldn't believe what I saw. The substrate shrunk so much that even the bottom pulled up and left room for mushies to grow(a lot of them). I thought damn it'd be nice if these were all on top. So in my haste, I carefully flipped the whole substrate over (without breaking it) 🤞 If anyone has any experience with this kind of thing, do you think I made the right choice to flip it, or should I of just left it to be? Also, do y'all think these mushies will eventually reorient themselves to grow upwards?
  2. hello all. This is my first grow with PF Tek and shotgun fruit chamber. Everything has gone well and I'm up to the fruiting stage. However over the last week my pins haven't seemed to grow. Most appear healthy as far as I can tell. I'm looking for input on if I just need to be patient and I'm doing everything correctly or if I should modify certain parameters. Currently they are in a shotgun fruiting chamber between 70 and 73 degrees 12 hours of light 12 hours of dark in a window with a bulb on the other side of the terrarium. I missed one to two times a day and I fan 3 to 4 times a day. I have included pictures of the setup and of the pins themselves. Any input would be welcome thank you.
  3. Here are a few pics of the first pins. They popped up this morning, only problem is I only see these 2 . Im sure with time more will come but I thought they would all come up at once for some reason. Any tips on getting a even pinset? My tub is dialed in I believe .
  4. I have been doing a monotub tek for the second time, this time with PE strain Last time I did a monotub I had less than ideal conditions in every step(mold colonizing in 3/4 of the cake style jars, improper soil(yard dirt instead of coco-coir, 80-90 fruiting conditions, flooding my tub continually, 2 1/2 pint colonized jars in a 60qt mono) and still grew 20g's dry. I have a few questions: 1: I am wondering what dry weight I should expect from 3lb's of colonized rye seeds and approx double the amount of coco coir as there is rye seeds in a 60qt monotek. PE strain ?????? (setup is fan/mist often, 12hr light cycle) 2: I am having trouble fruiting and have not seen pins yet and it's been 5 days since I put my chamber into fruiting conditions.(fan/mist, 70-80degrees, 12hr light cycle) I did not wait for the chamber to create the white fuzzy layer entirely before introducing fruiting conditions, but I did wait until there were white fuzzy spots in quarter size diameter around the rye seeds. Did I do something wrong? is it going to be okay? Did I potentially affect my overall yield? Should I continue fruiting conditions, or revert to no light, no mist no fan for a short period? What the tub looks like currently is the attached photo: Any advice would help, or if you want to suggest any improvements.
  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.

  9. 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.

    The wait is over for now

    So thought I would share this strains wait time. P.E. has taking 30 days for the grain bag to fully colonize. And another 10 days for the substrate to be ready to be put in the FC. I truly enjoy this technique that I know. However I’d like to point out, tap water should never be used to fruit👍🏼
  11. Should I be misting less now? Any estimates on how long till harvest?
  12. Sorry about the bad pics. My iPad 3 isn't that great.... I dunked them for 12hrs in distilled h2o after birthing, then rolled them in 50/50 peat moss/verm. 5 days after getting them in the FC, I'm getting pins and other white blobs which I assume are clusters of primordia. I'm misting & fanning 3x a day. The FC is near a window for light. I'm at 99% humidity and 73*. So far so good.👍🏾 I'll try and get some better pics
  13. So I have a mix of 4 cakes and 1 brick coir. I mist and fan daily, have a little cycle of 12/12. Am following all the teks. Wtf is going on? Why is there this green layer(not dark green)? Why are the pins so smol, and why aren't there more of them? FIRST GROW closeup Pictures from like 4-5 days ago

    3 day old pfk Tec cake!!

    Hey guys I'm looking for advice on my pfk Tec cake.. I put it in the fruiting chamber 2 days ago and I misted once today and fanned then a cpl times.. I put them under my grow light for a few hours today.. then set them back down where they go by my fish tank on top of a small refrigerator. To many ppl in and out of my room so I've gotta be discreet about it.. any advice on what to do next or what I'm doing wrong is greatly appreciated.. I really want this to work out.. it will be my first time tripping..
  15. Very happy yall.. 😄I'm getting pins or fruits.. same thing I guess.. 🤷‍♀️been watching them grow all day long.. not very big still but I did good by breaking it up.. I've heard of crumbling it up also.. anyone kno?? My compost pile is doing the job.. this will make 2 times from out there.. my inside grow is taking it's sweet ass time.. patience.. 😥 you guys are gonna get tired of me always on here.. but I have no one else but my bf and he's at work🤣 to talk to about this shit.. thanks guys for listening n reading my stuff.. really inspires me to do good when I hear from everyone..
  16. Hey guys.. my first time growing n I'm wondering if this is my pins starting.. I'm getting excited but don't wanna get my holes up as I kno it takes time.. so much time
  17. Hey guys.. another picture of my beauties.. my knots are growing.. and advice or criticism is welcome.. I am only here to learn n be better.. I've already learned so much..
  18. So. Got three cakes in my SGFC. About three inches of Perlite and I mist and fan about 3-4 times a day. Only one cake is pinning and it's pinning very slowly. It's been about a week and a half now. Any idea why it's going so slowly and why the others aren't pinning? The pins are about half an inch tall at the tallest ones and there's about 18 total on the one cake.
  19. Hey everyone , it's my first ever grow ! It's just about time for harvest , but I've having some trouble with knowing if it's time to harvest ? I've read a lot of different opinions on it , but I think getting some first hand opinions on mine will be best. There's quite a few big ones but there is also a ton of smaller ones under them that just started growing. Could I just harvest the bigger ones to allow room for the smaller ones to grow or is that a bad idea? Any and all opinions are welcome. Thanks! -TopHatSaint
  20. Hey wanted some opinions on if my new pins are ok? It's my first grow so I'm equally excited and paranoid.
  21. I don't have enough exp points yet. Is this mass one cluster or a few smashed together? Why are they bunches up like that? There is a "mound" of them the sub was flat to start.would this make a good candidate for clone practice? The other tub
  22. I was wondering if from a self made ms syringe by the time the myc are at the fruiting stage are there still multiple colonies in that tray? If so some don't produce fruit right? So by cloning choice fruit to agar and doing a2g trans am I producing more myc that will fruit thereby increasing pin set potential? I'm still in the research stage of this and think l have a lot of questions about the materials.
  23. is it common to see a veil stick to the stem and open as the mushroom grows? here is a pic of how pretty it is... Thgis shroom has a sibling on the other side of the "cake". They look strange to me. I this what the Thailand strain is suppost to look like? This "cake" is the result of an experiment to ensure that FRESH rabbit shit is a viable sub. I conclude that it is with no need to age or compost it. I just did a test, but since it worked out I am trying to fruit it.
  24. Hi, all. In these pics, does this look like hyphal knotting and maybe some primordia formation? Or just mycelium reaching for the heavens?
  25. My growth has stunted the past day and a half and it's worrying me a bit. I have a nice pin growth in all three, however they've slowed way down. They larger boomers seem to be choking at the veil. I've been reconsidering my mist fan technique as I am still new to growing. I fan 3 times a day for 1-1 1/2 minutes and I mist every time I fan. Temp of my room is around 75 degrees. Is it possible the CO2 is choking my shrooms and stunting growth of the pins? Someone mentioned I should crack my tubs open a bit for better airflow. Do I need to fan more often and for longer? Thanks!
