sad little shrooms
    #15076827 - 09/14/11 09:25 AM (9 years, 7 months ago)

I ordered some sterilized jars (will never do that again they were small as hell and cost 50 bucks) and everything appeared to go well the mycelium looked healthy and while moving houses they started fruiting in the jar.  I moved them to a fruiting chamber and out of 6 cakes I go 5 grams of dried shrooms and only one has fruited again... any opinions

I got the jars from the same site as spores and just thought it would be more convenient but I'm going to sterilize my own rye grain I've just ordered some organic and I've bought the items to build a proper grow chamber.. I just didn't know any better but I feel like they should have done better than this the smelled fantastic..clean shroom smell and looked good I guess it was me moving them and not having proper chamber

Did you use a properly built SGFC?  This should have handled the FCs.

Try again, but make your own PF-Tek cakes.

Good luck,

JD

No when I started these I was very uneducated on cultivation but the spores I have now I've built a full SGFC aquarium bubbler, heater, the whole nine yards and I'm using rye grain.. the shrooms that grew were really good I just hope the next batch does much better

this is your new bible http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/11585613#11585613

You need to dunk those cakes to make em soak up water. Make sure they are submerged, and not floating, because its the pressure (like pressure on your ears in a pool) that forces water into the cells of the myc. If you follow that tek, you'll be getting 5+ dried gs per cake, for 2-3 flushes. An undunked cake is an unhappy cake.

Just sounds like you exhausted the nutrients by not doing a dunk and roll?

Doing PF tek your self is easy but I have always believed  that bulk grows were best. I have never had great weight with doing PF but there are people on here will disagree.

Cheers

Well I've got everything lined up to do a casing grow
2 pounds rye grain substrate
2 pounds Sphagnum & Verm for casing dirt
2 Big aluminum trays
SGFC
Aquarium heater
Fish tank bubbler
2 big rubbermaid totes
bought 10 pounds of horticulture grade perlite
and some Hawaiian Cubensis spores on the way

I'm also going to try the Pf Tek method using the instructions Munchauzen gave me and I'll let you guys now what happens..

and if you have any advice on the method I'm attempting and things to do and not to do I'd gladly listen I've already learned a lot off this site and appreciate all knowledge given.

Yeah, and get shallow plastic bins, not aluminum. Grain doesn't make a very good substrate. You'll produce, but probably not much, because they don't retain a lot of moisture. Besides, your cubies will be most happy in supplemented horse poo. Go buy RogerRabbit's video. He explains everything. You need a lot more education before you start.

Best to use med. You can mix if you want to save money for the substrate and use the med for the top layer. I have had no problems.

Would check out the glad tek. Its ex as hell and you don't have to wait around for hours. I say this becuz your buying Sterile jars.

Good luck this time bro

Here's those pics..I know the substrate is a little messy but I had shrooms growing everywhere after I soaked them I crumbled them up and tried a casing and it worked except I had shrooms growing from the bottom as well so I had to break it apart..  the first pic is the one that was 21 grams wet it was thick
and the other pic was it peeking through it wasn't there the night before and the next morning bam!!
I've already eaten the ones I picked and had a good trip
My PF Tek cakes are in the pot now cooling I'm leaving them in the pot until morning and then inoculating them

If you follow that tek, you'll be getting 5+ dried gs per cake, for 2-3 flushes. An undunked cake is an unhappy cake.



Hey dude thanks a lot those cakes are exploding now that I dunked em..you guys have really helped me out on here
