houshroom's laboratory * completed *
    #1915343 - 09/14/03 02:20 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

i always wanted to have my own lab...so here it is :wink:.  this is to  document a couple projects going on, and partially to try and safe face from my failed texas experiment.  the projects are:

project 1

20 PF cakes cased in full, two per bread pan as described in  this thread.  i'll continue to update that thread, however, because this one is dedicated to...

project 2

two rubbermaid bins with 4 inches of straw.  one colonized with 6 quarts of south african, the other creeper, both WBS.  the creeper one is a little slower and needs a couple more days before casing but the african one is doing great.  trust me when the tek says to pack the straw down and tuck the plastic wrap in the sides DO IT!  here is the african cased with verm/coir/calcium carbonate, a week after spawned:





 

straw was soaked for 8 hours in a lime bath, then pasturized for 1.5 hours at ~165 give or take.  drained for 12 hours, squeezed, then spawned.  compressed the mix using hands but because i did the creeper first i didn't have a good feel for it and ended up doing the african better.  then they were covered with cling wrap and holes were punched every 2-3 inches using a hot fork.  casing layer was mixed in a large oven bag and gently sprinkled over the surface until about a 1/2 inch accumulated.  i expect patch casing in a few days, and hopefully by then the creeper will be ready to case.

oh, and one other note.  this setup has the possibility to grow a LOT of shrooms, and i just want to make it clear this is not an operation to make money.  this is a really enjoyable hobby that just happens to be illegal where i live.  the results of these projects are shared with responsible friends and taken under safe conditions.  if i wanted to make more money i have very reliable LEGAL ways of doing it

Might I say that 6qts of spawn to that much substrate seems like overkill?? You could spawn with alot less..

keep a close eye on this one...there are about a million hyphal knots and a good hundred pins on this south aftrican casing.  but, for how good this one is doing the creeper one is doing very bad.  it has an early stage of green that has overrun the corner three times already.  it has had surgery, salt and peroxide but i don't think it's going to come through :frown:.  oh well, glad i made two:

these were earlier today and they're already begining to get bigger and have lighter caps.  i don't know why they're so crooked, they've had light from above and fanned 4 or 5 times a day???  and if all goes well with some perlite spawn material i cooked up then i will be cloning a few of the good ones for another project

*OH MY DEAREST HEAVENLY FATHER ALL GLORIOUS!!!*

That flush is just not of this Earth! Incredible! That seems like cultivation put to ultimate perfection! A real masterpiece!

I am not such a maximalist as you are, for I don't really feel like taking the responsibility to give ready-to-consume mushrooms to anyone, that's why I can really appreciate your results honestly without any jealousy.

They must like you very much indeed, as they seem to cumulate in massive crowds at the entrance of your door of existence, to be born at your site... :smile:
