just showing off my pinset ! (pics)

And lo! upon the christmas morn he did unfold his eyelids to behold verily a sea of babies, nesting among the aerial mycelium bullrushes. And he did smile, for it was good.

Here's a shot to give an idea of scale (contains 2 half-pint brf cakes with cambodians)



and here's a closeup, as my shitty webcam has no focus feature. most of it looks like this!



I now plan to move this to the fruiting chamber: i'll drop the humidity by 10% and to keep the casing (50/50+) real moist. this encourages surface evaporation to suck the water and nutrients into the growing shrooms.

They grow small and weak, but plenty. Next time I?m using smaller trays with deeper substrate for hopefully bigger fruits. Probably millet or rye grains soon, when I can get my shit together.

Merry christmas! HO Ho ho!!!


Shirley.

hey nice work!  those are some good looking pins,

im no expert but is there a *slight* case of overlay there? or is it just the cam,
i have tryed casings a few times (with some success!) but i was just wondering if thats overly, good/bad, whatever.  Then again, arent cambo's the ones with real aggressive mycelium?  I know they dig heat...

Well good work any way! keep us updated!  and good luck :laugh:

Congrats!
I awoke on Christmas Morn to the same sight. I had almost given up on my casing, but Santa really did read my letters and sent me the 50 pins that I asked for.

isn't that one of those growing kits that has mycelium poking through the casing by the time it gets to your door?

! no, i've never used a kit !

i don't quite understand why the mycelium is so fluffy above the floor ('aerial') but do not think that there is any overlay on the surface anywhere. maybe it's just aggressive cambodian myc.

a day later, there are 18 of them an inch or so tall, and about 50 more that are still at the 1/4 inch stage. the tray is 6 inches by 11 and 2 deep. shame they never get above 3-4inches tall!

merry crimbo

from my experience, straight vermiculite layers tend to get fluffy as opposed to a white haze that you get on 50/50.. but then again, I've only done a few

every day for the last 3 days i've cleaned this from the tray:



only about 3 or 4 aborted. i've cleared it back to only the pins, and now presumably i can call my first flush complete. first flush weight: about 60g wet

how was the potency?
 




ah, unfortunately not good, methinks:
1g sent the wife into a tailspin - she thought the kitten and i had a plot against her, and tried to leave me. THAT was a long night!  :grin:(she was fine the next day!). 3g gave me colour changes, giggles, nothing more. i think i'm less susceptible to the chemicals. i'd say weak, but i dunno.  i wanted big visuals, stuff morphing into stuff, you know. 5g next try.

i presume the small fruits are a combination of strain / substrate, but i have no idea what determines fruit size.

You should move up to bulk substrates now. From reading your posts I think you'd do very well using dung. And the potency and size of your shrooms will increase largely.

thanks, defthread. i only have 3 tubs, though (incubator, pinner and fruiter), and i'm not sure where i'd get dung... (i know, i know, FAQs).... you think i'm ready? i was gonna do grains next (rye or millet) then try spawning to straw, before i tried using.. er, shit.

HeHe...  My thoughts today exactly.  Today I cooked my wormy Sheep shit,  spawning with PES amazonian on finch seed in a few hours time.  Sorry to jump your thread Shirley - I thought you'd appreciate this from a fellow London Shroomer :wink:

Standard brf jars to dung would probably be the easiest route to higher potency and weight. Dung is also very contam resistant due to microorganisms that aren't killed during pasteurization. I have no experience with plain straw but, Horse dung contains a large percentage of undigested straw due to the cow only having one stomach as apposed to a cow having four. So i think that the semi digestion of the straw is almost like a quick compost or something to that effect.
