Pond Water and WBS Grow Log ** Completed 7/2 **
    #1596604 - 05/31/03 05:29 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Six quart jars innoculated noon 5/26 with PR, TC, and EQ (two of each). Using Grain for Simple Minds with WBS and some pond water that had been pre-sterilized. Jars PC?d for 45 min at 15 psi. It appears verm was thrown in to help shake. First shake was 5/29.

* 5/31 - First round of pics:




Zoom!


* 6/2 - Current colonization progress




* 6/5 - Cased two quart jars of EQ in bread pans with 3/8 inch verm bottom layer and about 1/2 inch coir/verm mix with some crushed eggshell thrown in for good measure. Wrapped in foil and placed in incubator.

* 6/6 - Pond water and casing pics are here...


* Updated 6/11: Both EQs placed in fruiting chamber 6/10, and the rest done today. Two TC and PRs were cased 6/8.



* Updated 6/13: Another pic



* Updated 6/17: EQ pinning



* Updated 6/20: A great start for second PR casing



* Updated 6/22:

EQ

* Updated 6/23:

This doesn't look impressive, but the hand is just *really* big


Won't need to grow shrooms for a while...

No results yet for the water (trying to find a cheap test kit), but judging from the progress it seems as if the EQ likes the pond water substrate more than the TC does.  Too bad there aren't control jars that used plain water  :crazy:

What's the whole idea behind pond water?

All I could find to analyze the pond water was a simple pool test kit. Results showed pH to be about 7.2/7.4 and obviously no chlorine. I think I'll save a real analysis at a pond specialist until next time when control jars can be made.

ricelicker - pond water comes from a natural source and has lots of nutrients in it (as well as tons of algae and other shit) that if properly sterilized might do good for mycelium growth. So far the jars have had amazing results and will be ready to case before Thursday (11 days).

All I know is the EQ ripped through the WBS like mad. The two EQ jars were cased last night, and from what my friend reports the sweet smell of psilo mycelium permeated the room....tasty! If it wasn't for his dog chewing up the USB cable I could have posted his pics by now....

A CF card reader was purchased so the new pics have been posted. My friend was wondering if placing cool pads underneath the fruiting chamber is a good way of cooling it below its resting temperature of 77F? Any tips on getting these suckers to pin?

I'm going to complete this grow log. Friend reports flushes still coming but I don't have time to catalog them anymore. Between this and his other grow (on BRF), 71 dried grams have been harvested.
