First Grow. B+,PF Tek, 50/50 Casing, grow log [Lots of Pictures]
    #7543789 - 10/21/07 07:53 PM (7 years, 11 days ago)

Prologue: I have ordered a 10cc syringe of B+ strain Cubensis from Spores101.com, so far ive heard good things about them. Anyhow, I have purchased all required supplies and am just awaiting the arrival of the spores. I have a nice Nikkon DSLR camera so expect some nice pictures to come!

The Plan: Using the standard PF Tek method up until birthing the cakes. I will then preform the dunk and role tek followed by the 50/50 casing tek. This will take place in a large opaque rubbermaid bin with a perlite bottom for humidity. I will be making 5 PF Tek jars 3 of which will be cased and two of which will be caked, as long as no contaminations get in the way.

Day 1: Ok, so my spores came today, exciting right?! Anyhow i made the standard PF mixture, did the steam boiling, and inocculated them. I have serious doubts about my procedure but i guess that's to be expected the first time, the biggest thing im worried about was that my jar were very slightly warm to the touch when i inocculated, i was being rushed to finish because i had other things to do. Although i tried to make everything as sterile as possible, im still worried i contaminated something. Im going away until sunday so we'll just have to see what awaits me when i get back.

Day 4: Got home from vacation today and checked on my jars. THEY HAVE A CRAZY AMOUNT OF GROWTH...or atleast more then i expected for 4 days worth of it. They are being kept in a pitch black area at about 85F. Lemme know how you think they are doing?



Day 5: Tempature was lowered to ~80F last night. Came home this afternoon to a good amount of growth. Everything still look good to you guys?





Day 6: Growth has gotten alot more of a rhyz growth to it! i have one jar that has almost connected all the way around some of the others are being a bit slower but their development has been good for 6 days i'd say.







Day 7: My jars are at about 30% colonization. Growth is getting really rhizomorphic now compared to before and in four of the jars the band of mycelium has gone almost all the way around. Thanks:)





Oo and here is a picture of the FC i built today, look ok?


Day 8: Myc growth is really going fast I have pics from both sides of the jars to show how well they've colonized in 8 days! Let me know how they look to you all.





Day 10: Most of the jars are anywhere from 70-80% colonization i'd say. Still no sign of contams, which i must say does not trouble me;). Drilling holes in the fruiting chamber today.
Also got a nice sack of mushrooms from the fields yesterday, im gonna try to get a spore print of a cap. Here are pics of the most and least colonized parts of my jars, let me know what you think. Thanks





Day 12: Growth for the past two days has been good, jars are all about 90% colonized. I have bottom growth on 5/6 of the jars and expect the other to catch up tomorrow. Got pics of the least/most colonized portions of the jars. Still no sign of contams. Thanks







Day 14: The mycelium growth is at about 90-98% in all the jars but it seems to have slowed down a bit now. Just ordered a syringe of Golden Teachers to test out next.I also went out and got horticultural hydrated lime and crushed oyster shells today for my casing. I hope to start fruiting in like a week-week and a half.

Day 19: All the jars are at 100% colonization. 3 of the jars have been incubating for 5 days now and i am waiting for the rest to incubate a little bit longer. I also knocked up 6 jars of GT strain. Im gonna wait 3 more days and then i will case them. Thanks for viewing, drop me any comments or suggestions you may have.

Day 31: PINS!!! hooray! I checked up on my FC and found my first three pinson a cake! yay i'm so happy. Anybody considering trying to grow, DO IT! It is the best feeling to know that you helped create life.



Day 32(11/18): MORE PINS HOORAY!!! I have more pins forming on the cake shown yesterday as well as a big fat lump of a pin on another cake. Not to mention a pin on my casing as well.







Day 33(11/19): Today i counted 21 pins the pins in the casing are growing extremely fast while the pins on all the cakes are taking a little less time. Soo excited!!!









Day 39: Well I got home today to find a FC BURSTING with mushies, the only problem is i lost alot of spores all over the place, but w/e. I had a total of 37 caps 12 of which were 1.5 inches in diameter or bigger. Thanks Shroomery I will have a dry weight up in a few days! Sorry I dont have pics of them on the cakes/casing but it was such a gross mess :tongue:



Not even counting days anymore:) The first flush's dry weight was 12 grams and the second flush is starting to come in, i have about 8 decent size pins and some other ones starting to pop up. Next week I will let you know how potency was. I believe 3g for testing should be effecient, agreed?

Let me know what you guys think, any comments are happily welcomed :mushroom2:

85 is a little too high. bring it down to 80. on me mobiles so hard to tell. but that seems like a lot of growth for just 4 dyas.

r days you should be seeing very small circles of growth.

someone else on there computer that can see these pics beter?

Those look great! I'll be starting my first grow with a similar tek in a few days. I will be using the B+ strain as well. Let me know how it turns out!

Yep all looks good!!! seems like the temp drop has made a difference, i think maybe some of the teks may need to be updated, it seems now that around 80 is the prefered temp, i think the teks still state 86

I don't see any holes in the FC or 3-4 inches of perlite. I assume that your humidity and FAE is coming in from under the bottom where we can't see?

The light set-up looks good.
