Is there a wrong way to grow shrooms
    #11203549 - 10/07/09 10:57 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hey whats up guys. So about a week ago I harvested some shrooms off my PF cakes, dried them, and ate them over the weekend. I weighed them on my scale and they were about 2.7 grams. I felt nothing at all...which is total bullshit. I mean I know that sometimes they take a little while to kick in, but these just never did. And since I grew them myself I knew for sure they weren't bunk.  So my question is do you think I did something wrong in the growing process? Like maybe not enough rice flour or too much or something? Its just such a shame to see all that time and effort go to waste:frown:

Bad genetics man.  You probably did a multi-spore (MS) inoculation and the genes just didn't code for much psilocybin.  It doesn't happen very often, but you hear about it a lot, because it is a huge let down.  Try again and your chances of getting good stuff are very good.

I harvested them on the 29th, which is 8 days ago. I'll get my phone to upload the pic in a sec, but its when they were about ready to be picked off the cake. And I dried them with a fan blowing in front of them for a whole day almost. They were really crispy, so I didn't think I needed to use desiccant, and plus I already knew I was gonna eat them soon, so they wouldn't have time to rot

Got em from ralphsters, but I am not saying he is a bad source AT ALL. I think it was my mistake somewhere along the way...and I dunno about MS innoc cuz I was EXTREMELY sterile and didn't let any other strains near the ecuadors. Has this happened to any of you guys?

Are you sure they were completely dry? If not, you could have eaten significantly less than you had thought.

They usually lose 90% of their weight.

^^^That. Fan drying is going to get your shrooms about as dry as your local humidity. Not cracker dry, usually.

They were probably cubes if you got them from Ralphsters.  Multi-spore just means that there are many cube spores that contain different genetic profiles.  It has nothing to do with being sterile.  Sometimes the cube spores that end up germinating don't have the right genes for high psilocybin production.  It's like having a baby with down syndrome.  Bad genes, doesn't happen often... and good luck next time.  (the chances of another down syndrome mushroom is not very high)

I can't upload a picture cuz it says that file type isn't allowed...but trust me they look awesome like primo trademark shrooms. I'm pretty sure they were dry, I mean both the caps and the stems snapped in half when I bent them.They were real crispy. They got extremely small too, which i expected, but still weighed 2.7.  And....man I hope its not my brain, that would be probably the worst news of my life

If it is your brain, just eat more mushrooms next time. Sit down with the bag and munch on them until yo feel something.

Ive worked with EQ a lot and have not had any potency issues. Give it another go, MS is always different.
