September Cyans
    #15119972 - 09/22/11 11:28 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

Started a pot of cyan's last season, using the butts, debris, collected spore and discarded picks of last season from all over northern ca. I combined them as I got them into a terracotta pot full of wood chips, alder shavings, and a base of perlite/soil mix. I kept a dish full of rocks and shells underneath the pot & regularly filled it with well water. I also had another water basin with a potted plant submerged in it, stored on top like a cooling lid.

Here it is September and the babies are birthing.

Thought I would share some pics, enjoy!

These pics span 7 days.

















Vacated a slug nest that I found!







here's a shot with a new lid on the pot, to allow room for them to grow!

Thanks for sharing,

The fuzzy stuff around the bases is from too high of humidity constantly and lack of FAE. This issue could also effect the size of your fruits. It would be hard to increase the FAE in this setup without ruining the humidity, I personally would use large leaf litter next time to make for like a micro climate on the surface where the humidity will be high but the loose leaves will allow enough FAE. 1 layer of leaf litter will be light enough that you will be able to tell when they start pushing the leafs up. Very nice grow. I am sure it is a lot of experience this project.

Nice work! You must be buzzing already.

It's way too warm to do that where i am. I've done some cubes outdoors here in pots, and i'm still trying to find that balance between fae and humidity. It will be interesting to see how this turns out for you :thumbup:

hi all, I like what you have growing there, I have a few flushes of cubes, but can anyone please explain to me the difference between azures, cyan's, Mexicanas and any others? I am a first time grower, but frequent eater :laugh: Is it potency? How are the trips? More cleaner? More visual? Spiritual?

Is that air to the surface & airspace? or FAE in the substrate specifically?
I lift the lid about twice daily, and it has a drain hole in the top, though it is a relatively small hole. I could definitely see the possibility of the substrate developing anaerobic qualities over the summer, as I kept the water dish full most the time. However there were times, especially during spring, that I let the dish dry out & the substrate drain for a week. This is also when I would turn the mix lightly, about half way down. I usually just go by smell, it does not smell anaerobic and its nice & earthy!

This all started during last season unintentionally. After cleaning my finds I would collect any bits, pieces, butts, chip fragments, dropped spore and the discarded paper bags I carried them in, then line and layer my chip bags that I am currently colonizing for my garden. I had so much debris that I just started putting everything in this partially empty flower pot outside my door on my balcony. It filled up fast. Some time in January during a trip further north I found a fallen coastal alder, that had been freshly cut to remove limbs from the road. I collected a bag of the saw dust in a reused pick-bag. A few weeks went by, I had actually forgotten about the saw dust. Sometime in February I came across the bag and added the dust to the pot. I decided to cover it up once I noticed it was actually taking off, I had no goal really with this other than to get rid of excess debris. It got covered in April and about a month ago, when I noticed the primorida developing, I switched the cover to this upside-down pot to allow room for them to grow. This week I have been soaking the 'lid', concerned because we have had a few days of high 90's with no fog at all. We normally have a very foggy summer, I live in a coastal fog channel, my nook has a micro climate with 3 hardiness zones, from top to bottom. So its always interesting :grin:

Here's some of them this morning!

oh, and so far as my chip bags go, I have to say that the azures are far out doing the cyans.. but both seem to be thriving! Putting the chips out this fall.

Given there was a very good chance of lots of contamination, I have to say they are quite hardy & voracious. & to be more specific, this is technically a mix of p. cyanescens & p. cyanofriscosa debris. My main worry is the persistant slug population I have here, been knocking them back since they started eating my bulbs last spring. I have a resident spider guarding them!:tongue: But I doubt hes finding much he likes in there.

here's a tip that might help with the slugs.

make a table/ plinth for the pot to stand on, with the legs being long nails (I think mine were 5") hammered through the wood in each corner.
get some copper tubing (I found mine in skips around here, look for building work, loads of odds and ends get thrown away, or ask in a building supplies place)
cut the tubing so it fits around the nails and creates a sleeve for them, and legs for the table (they don't have to be as long as the nails, but the longer they are, the better)
get some wire wool and make sure the copper is as clean as possible, and the slugs won't touch your pots, they hate clean copper.

best of luck and feel free to PM if this isn't clear :smile:

ah just realised that the slugs might already be in your pots...
this tek will stop any new ones slithering into your pot from the rest of your garden :smile:

Thats a good idea! I have considered using diatomaceous earth and filling the water dish with it and maybe sand to help hold it in. Not sure if putting it in or on the substrate would cause any harm or not. Never looked into it for this reason. . . For now ive just encircled the dish with slugo pellets on the table.. The issue im running into now are the nests that were left behind. I have vacated 2 nests, and about 20 hatched micro slugs. Didn't see any the past 2 days, I think I finally nipped them!
