Mazatapec Mycofarm Growth
    #11283682 - 10/20/09 01:54 PM (8 years, 4 days ago)

I aquired a Mycofarm a while ago now, inoculated it with the Mexican/Mazatapec spores and put it straight into the cupboard in the dark on heat about 27 - 28.
It usually took around 2 weeks at the most for the substrate to become fully white & colonized the times its been done before but this one has been there over a month now & has only just got to this stage>>


Do you think this one is ready for temp drop & daylight to start the pinning? or should I give it a few more days?

bags can take a while some of mine i made have taken up to 2 months. did you shake? and if those are just grain in the bag you will have a hard time fruiting in the bag

Yeah I did a crumble up about a week ago and yes its just grain I think but once I get the casing layer on and its colonized I usually cut the whole bag away from the cake right down to the bottom so it can fruit out the sides & the top.
So you think this one needs a few more days in the dark? or ready to be cased.

so you aren't doing like this but cutting top and putting in FC? why not use as spawn since that's what they are for or buy/make a mycrobag so you can fruit in the bag. and  i leave my bags to colonize in the light they don't have to be in the dark and when they are done colonizing they will already be in the light and on there way to fruit.

What I did last time which worked quite well with good yield is wait until its nicely colonized then cut off the top and pour in the casing layer then once that is colonized I cut the bag from around the cake altogether and placed cake into a Humidity tent bottomed with perlite then put in daylight on around temperature 25.

Also another thing do you have to wait for a first load of mushies then pick, or do you just pick when they are quite big? because last time there were tiny ones fruiting while the big ones were getting too much so basically we were picking them whenever we thought the shrooms were big enough and leaving the lil ones to grow more.

Would that be right or do I just leave the lot until there are no more little ones and pick them all as a flush?
