need just a teeny bit of help....
    #1849189 - 08/25/03 07:39 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

hey guys, im soon to be growing the B+ i got from ralhsters within the next week, and i was wondering. After colonization, do i put the cakes (i have only 4, cant case, not enough room :frown:) derectly on the perlite? or raise them up a bit? im using a 50 gallonish fish tank for the aquarium, if anyone could give me advice on setting that up, go ahead. but what im wondering is, ok, i have a max capacity of 4 jars, all 1/2 pint in size, i am growing B+ from ralphsters, what would be the expected yeild? and how can i increase it as much as possible without casing? and aso, i have the spore syringe in my fridge, just in case something comes up *cough( probation *cough*, how long can i keep it in the fridge?


thanks for all of your help in the past guys. :loveeyes:

no, raise it up or at the very least put them on a piece of screen, plastic or just the lids of the jars (well sterilized of course). make sure your humidity isn't too high, give plenty of fresh air (especially once you see pins) light (12/12) and don't muck with them too much. and have a lot of patience. The syringe will last a long time (some I have are well over a year old and still made spawn out of them.)

hmm, ok, the aquarium is right next to my bed, wich is right next to the south window of my house, the room gets PLENTY of sunlight, but where the aquariums positioned its not direct sun light, so the light would go with the cycles of the earth :smile: i also have a fish air pump thingy with one aereator (sp?) stone, would that keep the humidity in check? and i wouldnt have to fan so much?

If you are using a 50 gallon aquarium for your fruiting chamber then you have plenty of room to make a casing. I don't understand why you say that you don't have enough room.

Oh ya. forgot. Crumble the colonized cakes in a ziplock bag and put it on some moist vermic. in a container. Or you can mix the crumbled cake w/compost (available in any field where there are cows or people ride horses (summer is the best cause it's dry already). The mycelium will go nutz w/in a week and then you case. Cakes are lame and only for people interested in super small scale cultivation. Even if you only want enough for yourself and a few others, casing will provide better shrooms and more of 'em. More surface area, dude!
It's easy. I did it succesfully my first time and they grew fat in spite of me and continue to grow!
