Bags almost fully colonized: HELP FAST
    #1988967 - 10/08/03 02:43 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have B plus growing in 3 mycrobags right now and one alreay looks colonized, but the other 2 look like they have another week left. Is it ok if I let the bag thats done still go for anohter week? bacause I plan on using all 3 to crunch up and use in a casing.

(middle ones fully colonized)






(some close ups of the finished one)

The worst that could happen:

The first bag could grow shrooms and you'd have to harvest them before casing.

Perhaps you could case them separately. This wouldn't be all or nothing either. Mycobags can be expensive. You'll want to get your money's worth.

You look new to the website. Is this your first grow? First casing?

Make sure the bags are fully colonized before you open them.

Check out the dunk tek (I'll find a link).

And look at the dunk and roll (I'll find that one too).

You're right about getting more shrooms if you case. And, the bigger the mycelia, the more shrooms you should get. The problem with casing all three, if this is your first time, is you put all of your eggs in one basket.

If you insist on casing (not as scary as I make it sound, but if you screw up you screw up big) you should make three casings. Then if one contaminates, you'll still have two.

Frankly, if this is your first grow, I'd make two casings and grow the other as a dunk and rolled cake. Then you can compare results.

Also, if you do it this way, you could wait till each bag had shrooms before you open the bags. Then you will, at least, get some fruits for your labors.

Here's a good grow log. It contains a link to another grow log (See Anno's post).

Between the two, you'll see mycobags grown from begining to end.

You'll see them cased, caked and grown in the bag.

And, you'll see some dry weights.

These are the best mycobag threads I can find. Read up, they should answer pretty much all of your questions.

Those are some great pictures. I've got to show my friend. None of his bags are as far along as yours.

Your bags should really be ully colonised. But a mycobag full of substrate is really plenty for one casing.
So you're find in casing the first.
Its better for a newbie too , cause if you muck something up this week, then you can do it better the next.
PLUS you've got 3 times the practice, which of course , makes perfect in the end...
Do a growlog and that way you can get the most advice to every step!

It will end up the same over all, but if something goes wrong with 1 you loose 1/3 rather than the whole lot.
