First time grower-help, please?
    #11293031 - 10/21/09 05:43 PM (8 years, 29 days ago)

Hi,

This is my first ever grow. I inoculated three grow bags from The Mad Season with about 20 ccs of Pink Buffalo LC about 2.5 weeks ago. I've been keeping them in a trunk in my room in which the thermostats is set to about 76 degrees (f). I've seen little to no growth. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Any possible solutions?

I appreciate any and all help as I'm a total n00b.

20 cc's each?

i tried those grow bags a long time ago. they took a while to colonize, for me at least....

the ones that did work. i only got about a quarter dried. some more some less. each flush. threw them out after 2nd flush.

20 CCs each. A long time meaning a few more weeks?

i know most people tend to use more LC than they would from a multi-spore syringe. but 20cc seems like a lot to me for those little bags...

there is nothing you can do but wait it out.

if you see a good amount of growth (white stuff..) 25-30% try massaging the bag gently to distribute the myc so it will grow faster.

Thats far too much, that may have put the water balance off within the bag!

Your only meant to put in a few ml per bag!!

this is what i was thinking..

too much LC. the mad season spawn bags are small :frown:

no way to remedy it that i know of. and i doubt there is to be honest.

just wait it out.

I have two more bags. How many CCs should I use for them?

Also the bags don't look wet. No condensation, no extra liquid.

Well just wait it out and see what happens, make sure you have the correct temp as well!

Well with my bags (600g) you need around 2ml. Are there not instructions with the bags or anything online?

But with must things I have seen its 2ml and since you have LC it shouldn't be as long as spores as you have living myc in there already.

You say you can see growth so thats good sign! Also is the bag inflating and the air patch up right so air can be exchanged?

Sorry im no expert just going with what i sort of know.

Also this is your 1st grow so just wait it out on my first bag grow i had to wait a few months i believe before it was done, but mine was at a colder temp than yours.

Just wait it out.

i wouldnt use anymore than 5cc's for the mad season bags. they are small bags.

try multispore and lc next time. that way you can do side by side comparison.

bags take a while and 20cc is allot. if you see nothing in it its bettter than seeing green. those bags do take a while but if it has been more than 2or3 weeks and nothing from the LC then there is something wrong

I would recommend to follow their directions they have on their website.

http://www.themadseason.com/directions.asp

I myself am about to try 2 or 3 of these while I'm putting together my setup. I'm also a noob and these seem like a nice way to do a first little grow. I'm also going to practice making spore prints from these.

As everyone else has said, 20cc is way more than what they have on their directions. This is directly from the site you purchased from.

"Squirt between 2 to 5cc's of spore solution directly into the substrate material. We do not recommend using more than 5cc's of solution or you run the risk of throwing the water content off inside of the bags which could lead to contamination risks later on."

Good luck!

I was thinking a 20cc syringe would be massive!! I have only seen 10cc/10ml syringes so where did you pick up that?

Also clearly states on the site 2-5cc! How the bag doing?

I like this one because you can easily modify it with an autoclave bag and have as much LC as you want!




This one is more commonly available in stores.

It's in a trunk, maybe it's not getting all the FAE it needs inside the trunk?

Sometimes they just take forever. Even with something small like a jar, things can go wrong. I've left what I thought to be uninnoculated jars in a drawer for 3 months, moved out (still just verm...) and then got a call from the parents about the "white thing in a jar" about 2 months after that.

Somehow it just took 5 months for this pint jar to colonize.

Just let it go.
