growing azures indoors
    #1057560 - 11/16/02 05:03 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

i hope this is the right forum... sorry for posting what might seem common sense to some here... i'm still on a learning curve here...

reading the threads i've found that azures are not/can not be grown indoors. i did find one thread where someone started a grow indoors, eventually moving it outside in the final stages... many were very happy at the achievement...

what is it about azures that make a difficult indoor grow? what are the conditions that can't be met indoors?  :tongue:

i appreciate all feedback i get on this one... thanks in advance... peace

They need cold weather. So to cultivate indoors would mean to put in a fridge type fruiting chamber

Damn, they really like it cold, huh? Are they a difficult grow compared to cubensis?

I tried growing azures indoors, but never had much success. The best I got were a few aborts, no real fruit to speak of. I soaked wood chips in boiling water for several hours. Drain the chips and put them in a spawn bag. Autoclave the span bag/wood chips for 1hr at 25psi. Allow to cool and innoculate with multispore solution and seal the bags. Incubate until the wood is fully colonized. Put the wood chips in a tray and case with wet strips of cardboard. (Wet strips of cardboard are cardboard strips that have been soaking in water overnight). Incubate a bit longer, and then move them to a cooled terrarium (I used a device called a cold finger to maintain temps). Gasp in joy as lots of pins show up... sigh in disapointment as then pins all abhort.

One thing that was recommended, but that I have never gone back and tried, is to increase the bulk of wood chips in the tray. I have been told that azures require a lot of substrate in order to fruit properly and that I was "starving" them because I only used a quart or so of wood chips per tray. Donno if this is true or not... is on my list of things to try when I get the time.

The two important things that I did verify are that low temps and the cardboard casing are required for pinning.

i recieved some feedback from an experienced member here and he felt there is probably a biological trigger needed found in the enviorment, ie. bacteria in the soil... i would love to give this a shot.. but i'd like to understand all the details... slowly they're coming in!

thank u seuss... i hope this thread continues getting feedback from people with experiene...  :cool: peace!

about casing with soaked strips of cardboard.... could that be done with cubes as well? sounds like it might increase yield.

That's pretty tight. I hope the adding more wood chips thing works. I'd like to try that some day. I didn't know what a cold finger was and I did a search and I found some sites selling them for $600-$700 bucks! Where did you get one? You didn't pay that much did you?

cubes don't grow on wood and I don't think they would grow on a wood byproduct. Just case with some coir or 50/50+

I got mine for around $120 on labx auction a few years ago. They come up for sale every now and then, but not often by any stretch.

Regarding the biological trigger... I could find no research to back up the claim, only tons of net gossip. It didn't seem to matter for me... the pins formed, its just they didn't grow much after that.

I haven't tried the cardboard casing with cubes, though I don't know that it would work for a non-wood loving species... cardboard is a wonderful casing material... almost nothing grows on it, but azures love the stuff.

Cubies will thrive on paper. Especially B+.

B+ on recycled paper

F+ on Woodchips
