*completed*malabars / cased straw: 4oz dry (5 flushes)
    #1452264 - 04/12/03 01:35 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

hello picfans - witness an unknown cube strain (from unlabelled print) inoculated to wbs and incubated. when fully colonised, 1.5 litres of wbs spawned to 5 litres pasteurised chopped straw (petshop) in layers. holey tinfoil, pressure, left in the dark 10 days until all white. this 5" deep block cased 1.5" with coir/peat/verm/chalk casing and incubated until showing though, then birthed in clear plastic tub with filtered fishtank airpump tubing. 90% rH, 70-75F...... they're growing!

...i count almost 200 pins, of which about 40 are like this:

hopefully the rest will sit there nicely and be flush #2, rather than abort (though i've previously experienced straw gives one flush only). that divot is where i scooped out a piece i was worrying about several days back. better safe than sorry!  :smile: happy harvest is about 3-4 days away! :grin: :grin: :grin:

Wow, how nice! Squirtle is going to be using wild bird seed for his next experiment. He will be casing in a large transparent tupperware container of coco coir and vermiculite. He'd like to know how you set up the air pump for O2/CO2 exchange.

Squirtle's own air pump has two hoses that blow O2 into the container. Should he cut a hole in the side of the container so he can place the hoses in and then seal with tape or something similar? How is your CO2 released?

Hey Oddish...you might want to try and cover the sides of your transparent container with duct tape or some other method to avoid pinning on the sides of the substrate...just a thought...

Is it true that they grow toward whatever light source they can find? Squirtle certainly doesn't want his mushrooms growing sideways. Thanks for the advice.

18 hours later, and these puppies are growing like mad: so much so, in fact, that they were about to hit the lid, and i had to turn the terrarium on it's end and move other tenants about:

.. ..

as you can see, they're splitting for some reason. maybe it's a temp / humidity / air exchange thing ( :laugh:there's not much else it could be!). opinions?
here's >< another thread about splitting / peeling

hey Oddish - all i have is a thin airline piped into a tight hole in the tub wall - the fishtank airpump's intake is filtered. CO2 seeps out of polyfilled holes near the base (only now it's on its side!)

Hamurabi! - good to have you back from your army days. looking forward to following your projects  :grin:

Update, 8h later - sorry to keep multiposting this, but i never saw them grow so fast in my life! ..

i just know that when i wake tomorrow morning i'm gonna have to do some harvesting before work! anybody care to guess the strain? (i have no idea) :tongue: :laugh: :tongue: :laugh: :tongue: :laugh: :cool: :smile:.. :laugh: :grin:

I'm going to make sure and use this method rather than fanning. So, your Polyfill holes are on the bottom of your container or on the side near the bottom? Sorry about the mix-up. I tend to get confused often.

:grin:

Also, if I have an unfiltered air pump, what type of measures could I go about to make sure that only clean air is gracing my terrarium? Thanks a bunch!

:tongue:

i fan as well, but with this it doesn't matter if i go out of town, or forget. maybe if i had lots of intakes, fanning would be unnecessary (especially if, like me, you have pets, carpets etc). i'm not aware that you can ever have too much air exchange. the holes should be on the side, near the base.

my airpump is a standard design - i took it apart, and covered all possible holes and cracks with filter / micropore - an idea i got from roadkill. i'll try to do a quick update pic before harvest - no doubt sometime in the next 24h :laugh:

48h later - almost time! [Re: Oddish]
    #1455974 - 04/14/03 02:09 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Update again: these pics are 44hours older than the ones in the top post. It seems they still have some way to go - no veils have popped yet, in fact they're only really now becoming distinguishable as veils. wahey - that means bigger shrooms  :smile:my best flush yet!

... ...

right - time to go and earn my food and shelter. later, dudes  :cool: (any guesses on the strain?)  ...shirl xx

Good job! I can't wait to see what they look like when they are mature. Sorry, no guess on the strain. I'd just make a fool out of myself.

Re: 49h post start - still enlarging! [Re: FocusHawaii]
    #1457057 - 04/14/03 02:51 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Well, when i got back from work, i was very satisfied - an extra c.15% bulk, and still going - the biggest is 6" tall -but is that blotch on the caps? :confused:

... ...

the first few may be picked tonight (or even in the morning) and then continuously, as they arrive at the finishing post, over the next 24-36h  :cool:
i intend to let a few of the monsters go to maturity, for some prints: mostly for the  >free spore ring<, which has supplied most of my spores to date, and perhaps a couple for me. it'd be a shame not to let these mommas breed, and have grandchildren to look at their ancestors' photos one day!

this log is not yet complete!  :laugh: :laugh:  anybody wanna guess the wet/dry weights of the first flush?

From the color, I would say Golden Teachers, but the shape isn't quite right. Otherwise, I have no idea.

Either way, great job!
