  1. So for a bit now I've been talking about trying the edible side of mush growing and finally have done it with pink oysters. There will be others coming soon (golden oyster, king oyster, reishi and lions mane). I will just add them to this thread as they come along. I used phish' wood substrate recipe, so far it has worked great. The only change I had to make was I used alder pellets because the store I went to didn't have oak pellets. I will get oak soon for next round. You can find his recipe here The first couple of pics was when they started bustin out of the bags, and then
  2. I was inoculating some cakes here recently and wanted to see what happened when I inoculated the Wood loving sapprohictic Reishi species into a simple BRF cake formula.I assumed nothing because of the lack of said wood that isn’t present but lo an behold I do have some mycelium growth after a week!!!It doesn’t seem to be the strongest by any means but my question was this....If I do by chance get the reishi mycelium to throughly colonize can I use to transfer to a bulk substrate consisting of wood and what not so as to bring about proper fruiting conditions or is this a experiment bogged down
  3. Hi all, I'm pretty new around here. I got into this hobby for several reasons. One main one was to explore microdosing. There is a 2017 video where Paul Stamets proposes a nootropic "Stack" for "Epigenetic Neurogenesis" (about the 27 minute mark): I'm wondering if anyone here has tried this stack. I have, for about 5 weeks now. I took the dried mushrooms from my first grow, ground them up and put them into #00 capsules. I did this for consistency of dosage, as well as ease of use and a less conspicuous form of storage. I've seen reports of people getting up to 0.5g i
  4. Hello everyone, was reading up on medicinal mushrooms and was highly interested in these two. I found LC syringes at a decent price from a reputable vendor and are on their way. First will make 250ml LC jars for each one, then play. I know they are wood lovers, but can't decide if I want to try logs, hardwood chips, or sawdust blocks/bags. Which would be the easiest route to get my feet wet? I understand the WBS jars colonization is the same as cubes and it is just the substrate/growth/fruiting conditions that change, right?
  5. Hello fellow hobbyists! This will b my first official attempt at farming up some delicious healthy fungus to nom down on being that I'm obsessed with the fungus and 20 bucks a pound sucks so here we grow. So this log will start solely with the lions mane simply because i have made some liquid culture of this and i figure i could add strains as the log goes on. this is 1 of the 4 cultures i have and they are pretty close to equal. Now tomorrow is pay day so i will b getting some grain to prep. Was going to get corn kernels, Millo, and rye berries to prep into some o my wide mouth quartz. I
  6. This will be Air-O-Fusion's first grow log. The King Stropharia and Reishi have arrived; however, the King Stropharia is not as described. Both the King and Reishi were described as liquid culture syringes. The Reishi Syringe says "Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) Culture Prepared: 11/2/15." The syringe has cloudy white fuzz accumulating at the tip. i did not try to evenly disperse the cloudy fuzz throughout the liquid. The King Stropharia says "Mushroom 'Seeds,' This pack contains mushroom spores. OUTDOOR USE ONLY." I did not expect a manila envelope. The manila envelope was stapl
  7. How to grow Reishi Mushrooms Dedicated to Fast who so kindly sent me five plugs that will last a lifetime. For many months I have been drawn to reishi, mostly for its medicinal properties, but as a secondary interest, mastering its forms of growth. Reishi has many forms in the wild, antlers, turkey tails, and conks. All of these forms are achieved successfully by manipulating its environment correctly. I plan on doing just this. Following the completion of this log, which will be months down the road most likely, I will also provide a "double" exctraction technique that will allow one to c
  8. Hey everybody! So I am very new to the mycology scene but I have found someone to send me some reishi spores so I am planning on growing reishi's. I've been doing quite a lot of research on mostly this site and Youtube and sorta have a few questions. During my research I realized that reishi are wood loving. I was planning on using WBS before I found this out. Should I use some pet wood bedding instead of WBS or am I good with using WBS for inoculating my jars? If I can use WBS would it be better if I mix my WBS spawn in with some wood bedding at that point as my substrate then case it with
  9. Hey guys, been working on reishi for a while now and gonna do this log right, my previous ones got abandoned due to my laziness. NOT THIS TIME!!! Don't inoculate logs, use this method, lots faster, lots less patience required. Also I want to share what else I've been doing with this reishi. I have given it out to several family members as well as friends to try it out. Even a few unbiased people who don't just love the thought of being around me So far, every single person has reported some type of benefit. Mostly it has been allergy relief and improvements in breathing. My mother ha
  10. If you do not know what Rhumatois Arthritis is and you would like to find out please click here for a better understanding. http://en.wikipedia....atoid_arthritis NOTE the picture of the fucked up hand was probably someone who never caught it early enough or didnt treat it until it was too late. I am going to grow Reishi because I am hoping that it will help someone I know and love dearly, There are all kinds of experimental drugs on the market and some that are aproved but riddled with nasty side effects. My goal is to use these and give as a supplement to control this auto immune type
  11. Ryen's Reishi Grow Log Shiznit Thang This is a log of my very first grow. I started by doing 3 jars of reishi, 2 reishi LC's, 3 AA+ and 1 AA+ LC. This is my incu-cabinet filled with the jars noc'd. I did one Reishi and one AA+ on 9/5, the rest on 9/8. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The first AA+ i noc'd showed NO growth what so ever so I dumped it. The other two AA+ are showing verrrrry slow growth. But the reishi took off so i'll just dedicate this post to them. These are the r

  13. Fellow Mushroom Lovers, Purchased two syringes from Ralphsters Feb 2013. The two spore syringes arrived with two different lot numbers/dates of cultures listed on the syringes. This was exactly what I was hoping for just in case the need of another syringe was needed I would have one extra one chillin. I used the one mark November 2012 and created 6 pint sized of lc using a ratio of 4ml to 100 of light karo syrup. 2-3 weeks later it was like i now had the equivalent of 6 new syringes. On a side note i used 5 ccs of my original syringe on an experiment that totally failed. The syringes
  14. This reishi substrate was started on 10/19 and I experimented with supplements. Total volume of sub was ~400 oz (12 quarts) composed of 70% hardwood sawdust from heating pellets, and 30% aspen chips from reptile bedding. Supplements were: -1 cup gypsum -1 cup wheat bran -8 cc molasses The sub was divided between 2-16 qt tubs, and an experimental 20 oz plastic drink cup, wrapped in foil, with four 1/4" holes punched in the sides. Subs appeared to be mostly colonized after 3 days at temp varying day/night from 68*F to 74*F. First primordia seen on all 3 contain
  15. My original plan was to make a 60 qt monotub, thinking that 145 oz of substrate and 50 oz spawn would easily fill the tub to 4.5". Nope! I quickly got a 16 qt midi-tub ready, which worked out well with half the footprint of the 60 qt tub. Some of the chunks of spawn were large and very tough requiring a knife to break them up. If I could have used a food processor w/o great risk of tams, I would have. My experimental 100% sd spawn jar had the largest knots--not trying that again!. It occured to me too late that I should have showered and changed clothes before the noc, so I'm on trych watch
  16. Anti-tumor and anti inflammatory activites of polysaccharides isolated from Ganoderma Lucidum Abstract: In this study, polysaccharides were isolated from Ganoderma lucidum (Polyporaceae) and their antitumor and anti-inflammatory activities were investigated using in vivo models. Potential antitumor activity was shown by G. lucidum polysaccharides (GLP) against solid tumor induced by Ehrlich's ascites carcinoma cells. GLP at 100 mg kg(-1) body mass showed 80.8 and 77.6% reduction in tumour volume and tumour mass, respectively, when administered 24 h after tumour implantation. Again, G
  17. wish me luck, if things seem to be turning out ill will make a log. Did 5 or 6 jars. http://localhost/shroomology-test/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=view&id=357
  18. hi, I compiled a lot of good info on the Reishi mushroom for a friend that could used it now, but his to closed minded to accept the mushroom Reishi ( ganoderma or lingzhi ) the mushroom that boosts the immune system. http://altmedicine.a...a/ganoderma.htm Hailed in ancient Eastern medicine as the "mushroom of immortality" and the "medicine of kings," you'd expect reishi to offer you some pretty astounding health benefits, right? Your assumptions are correct. This prized fungus may be able to boost your immune system, fight cancer, ward off heart disease, calm your nerves a
  19. Looks like it will do pretty well here with only karo water microwaved, would eventually like to do it in hippy piss one of these days.
