Newbie here... pics of my colonizing jars and dets...
    #1984554 - 10/06/03 07:31 PM (18 years, 23 days ago)

Hey there, This is my first attempt at growing shrooms, and so far I have done hours and hours of reading about culitivation, and methods etc. This site has been the perfect tool to expand my knowledge. I have found the answer to any questions that I've had along the way, here on this site. It's a great spot with tons of info..

I've got 7 jars of VERM with brown organic rice flour, each jar injected with 1 cc of Ecuador spores. They were innoculated on Sept 24th.

During the first few days I had them sitting on the floor in in-direct sunlight for half the day. Then I started using my digital thermometer and started caring about them.

They now rest on top of my Water Dragon's Terrarium, alongside over 275 watts of constant heat. The top of the tank alone sits at 85 degrees farenheit, the air emitting from the 110 gal tank is a steady 88 degrees.

After two days of colonizing on top of the tank I noticed a small amount mycelium growth  :thumbup:

They will be two weeks old on Oct 8th and (I hope) will be ready for birth ten days from then.

I will be posting some pics of my "Shroom Terrarium" that I designed using a ultrasonic fogger (for reptiles), and perlite... Can't wait

Here are some pics:

Aaaaaa, Your not keeping your jars in total darkness?????????  :shocked:

I don't think you have read very much of the information on this site, Its a very bad idea to have light on those jars until you want them to pin.

Light triggers pinning :rolleyes:

Yes, keep them in the dark. But as long as you go by the books you don't have to worry too much. I am a starter myself and I notice that shrooms grow themselves.

Good luck, the jars look very promissing.

It won't hurt to expose them to light to check on them or to take pics for your grow log. Now if you exposed them to light for long periods of time you will get invitro shrooms.

The jars are not exposed to sunlight or flourescent lighting. My apartment is in the basement so I don't get a lot of daylight as it is.
They do sit atop the terrarium, however, the fluorescent lighting tube is enclosed in a canopy so it is not shining on the jars.

Is that still bad :confused:

Mushrooms don't use light as a source of energy to grow.  The Mycelium network uses it as a way to determine when to start growing mushrooms.  You shouldn't ever really give them direct light while they are colonizing.  Indirect light is enough to initiate pinning.  Think about it from the cake's perspective.  If it didn't have light to tell it when to start fruiting, shrooms would start growing on the inside of the cake because they would have no clue where on the cake to grow.  If the final goal of a mushroom is to distribute its spores, it wouldn't be beneficial to grow on the inside of a cake (let alone possible).  You NEED to keep those jars out of the light until they are 100% colonized or you will have invitro pinning (bad).  Put them in a box and then place them on top of your reptile terrarium for heat.  BTW:  You don't want to heat them much past 84 degrees.  The mycelium produces small amounts of heat when it grows.  Try to heat it as close to 84 as possible.  86 is optimum for colonization, so the heat produced by the growin mycelium + the heat from your reptile terrarium should come close to 86 if you play with the terrarium.  Don't overheat... it is better not to heat them at all..
:smile: Good luck man

I kept mine in a drawer away from light, only took them out to check progress. So I wouldn't worry about early pinning if they're exposed for a short duration. Right now I have some sitting on my windowsill that'll be invitro.

yes, keep them out of any light until you want them to pin(till fully colonized) i was like wtf are you doing man, get em out the light!

i inoculated 10 jars on Sept 23rd, and my jars are just as far as yours if not a lil farther... but the thing is my temp is at 65 - 70(best i can do) so yes, heat really doesnt matter as long as you have the temp above 60(which is the lowest they will grow at i think, cuz that is pretty cold.)

good luck homes

If there is enough light to see the jars there is 2much light and your risking invitro pinning. I can tell just by looking at your last picture there that your jars are getting 2much light.

Just make sure you get the aborts of the cake when your growing. I am a newbie my self and started with the eco's but wasnt reconizing the aborts soon enough, long story short they start decompossing quickley and next thing you know there i got moldy. in like 3 days. I am now starting all over again, never really getting a flush since i molded. wont make the same mistake twice here.

I think that the reason that he is using the lights is to provide heat.
Am I right???

But like its been said if the temperature is abouve 65'F your mycelium will still grow, maybe not as fast but it will still grow.

So if you do not want invitro pinning I would recommend to turn of those lights, and just leave the jars in there in the dark.
