Growth Log Pictures, Pk-tek ---- First Timer ----
    #1684361 - 07/03/03 05:35 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, well I followed the pf tek and inoculated 12 1/2 pint jars on June 8th with a 12cc EQ mycelium syringe. I sterilized the jars with a big pot with about an inch of water in the bottom, and a lid on the pot for an hour and a half on the lowest the stove would go. I put the jars back in the box they came in and left them up in my closet. 8 of them were completly white from sides to bottom on June 29th. I fruited them on June 29thth, Here are pictures I just took(Today) of them at 5 days after being birthed into a rubbermaid tub wiped down with rubbing alcohol and with moisted perlite drained through a strainer on the bottom. The only diffence I see is raised white furry bumps of mycelium. What are these bumps? This is my first time gowing ever growing. How long should it take for these cakes to grow fruits? Thank you in advance. I'm So happy I think i may have done it on my first try : D

P.s Sorry for the poor pictures i took them with my webcam.

They look good. those bumps are what are referred to as hyphal knots, basically the pre-pinning stage. Make sure to give them plenty of fresh air and watch your humidity.

As a suggestion, try applying a thin layer of moist verm on top and on the bottoms of the cakes, or alternitively roll in dry verm and spray till moistened. Also make sure that the cakes are not sitting directly on the perlite. use the lid from the jars to place the cakes on (if using moist verm, put verm on lid and sit the cake on top.at least 12 hours of light a day.

remember: fan, fan, fan.

I noticed the bottom of the cakes are kindda growing mycelium on the lids. Well I'm gonna take your advice and add some moist verm to the tops and bottoms of the cakes, Hope it doesnt fuck um up since they already are growing hyphal knots. Thanks for your advice but, I still got one question that wasnt answered, How long should it take for some fruits. I'm bout to take one of the cakes and blend it up in milkshake wit a banana and down that shit. : D

you are about 1 or 2 weeks away give them alot of humidity and fresh air to speed them up once pins are notice back of the humidity blending a cake up is not worth it not even a little...

Well it's to late, I just took soochi's advice and added a thin layer of some moist vermiculite to the bottom and top of the cakes. What effect should this have on the cakes? I'm kindda impatient is this gonna slow down fruiting?

I'm kindda impatient is this gonna slow down fruiting? Someone posted why do that? You'll have shrooms in 1-2weeks.

double end casing will speed it up i believe cause now it has a micro humid environment that will encourage pinning

Well, Thank you all for your advice, I'm glad I got this far. I will keep everyone posted with pictures whenever they decide to grow fruits. I have 4 jars that are now 100% I'm wondering if i should make another fruiting cotainer and fruit them now or let um sit in the jars a tad bit longer, I birthed these jars soon as most of them were completly white. Also I noticed the jars colonized extremly quick, could this be because i used a mycelium syringe and not a spore syringe, there for the spores didnt have too germinate, which im sure takes a lil while.
