I got 1/4 pint jars. They're just what you expect; short full colonization time, small, and don't hold as much substrate. Though if you try to fruit off of one you will get very tiny fruit so you have to stack them.

Stacking is a cool Idea...could it be bettered by adding the drinking straw reservoir tek to hold the cakes togeather? You'd have to push the straw through the fist cake, risking having a straw full of substrate/mycelium...Hmmm, this is interesting. Quick to colonize huh?
I'm gonna do a project involving 1/4 pint jars and my cereal tek, to see if I can get jars 100% colonization in 1 week.

Actually it matters very much what you use.

I've realy never fruited shrooms, but I have colonized like 100 jars, with many different factors and variables recorded, and it does matter what you use as a substrate...
And to those of you who think that mixing different ratios of grain/flour to verm won't have drastic effects, it will!
I now use less grain and more verm.When I use my cereal tek lately anyways.

In reply to:

Huh? That's like saying "I've never really had an orgasim, but I stuck my dick in like a hundred pussies?"

What in christ's name do you do with them?

Yeah, that did sound funny, and MMMMmmmmmmm pussy.
Anyways, everytime I try fruiting, it goes bad...Pf tek, casing everything dies...
The closest I've come is HUGE primordia, but never pins.
I think i'm gonna build a glove box to reduce contams when injecting or mixing spawn...

So you have successfully colonized 100 jars (approx)  and you haven't got one fruit?  DAMN BOY, get your ass back on the short bus.  :wink:  All joking aside, that's pretty shitty.  I still can't believe it.    :confused:

Thats really weird. Fruiting is the easy part for me, once the mycellium is done I can kick back and try to remember to fan and mist. Somethings wrong, if I were you I would grow out of cakes and read up on pinning/fruiting.

By the way, where do you guys find 1/4 pints? Never seen them locally.

100 jars and no shrooms. Holy shit call Ripley?s.
Ok if the jars are getting colonized then things are going righ on that end but no shrooms. Rebuild the chamber. Check your meters. Air exchange more. Bring humidity up even if it is to high, make those cakes fuzz the fuck up if need be, just as long as things arn?t to dry. To dry=bad, to wet=bad but not as bad.
If your jars are fully colonized and I mean colonized like rubber chunks the prob has to be there.
I don?t clame to know shit I just put up the pics to show I?m not totally blowing smoke out my ass.
