Removing the tape and flipping the jars has made a massive difference, in around a day a half I have seen big strides. I am thankful for the tips. I will try and case them, any tips besides what is readily available in the Teks? I mean it seems straight forward but I always freak myself out when I think I have a good grasp of something, lol. Geez, I'm 37 and am acting like a damn kid with excitement. I went out and bought 25 pounds of millet for my next attempt and just realized that I have no clue if it was the proper type or if any type is simpatico, "pearl millet" is what I purchased.

Here are the two best jars, The jars were inoculated at 4 am, Sept. 25th:

i would love to help you out but i am not sure of the ?. there are so many different things you can do in this hobby, what are you after? do you have any kind of casing in mind, then we can provide details. want to spawn?

as for the millet, it should be unhulled. they tend to hull it for people but don't for animals. so birdseed kind is normally good.

man i wish you the best of luck.

these EQ's are getting to me so i hope i made sense.

evening

The millet bag states: "Hybrid Pearl Millet Leafy 22 Variety"

I am going to try and case as follows: 1/2" moist vermiculite on bottom of tray, crumble cakes onto it (how many 1/2 pint cakes?), cover with a layer that is roughly a 50/50 mix of peat and moist vermiculite and around 3/4" thick, a Tablespoon of gypsum and 3 of crushed oyster shells will also be in that mix. Then I will put that in my handy dandy plastic pseudo-terrarium which will be lined with a layer of perlite and water. I will give it a bit of light and wait until the first flush is ready to pick. What am I missing? I have no idea how dumb what I just wrote may in fact be. All advice, corrections, comments,are welcomed...

Sounds fine.

"I have no idea how dumb what I just wrote may in fact be. All advice, corrections, comments,are welcomed..."

Stop overthinking, mushrooms are easy. Just have to be able to wait for things to do their thing. Try growing buds start to finish and you'll think mushrooms are easy.  :thumbup:

ok here goes, 1/2" moist verm-good start.

how many cakes depends on the size of the casing container. but at least 2 or 3 for a small casing.

i could be wrong but i thought that gypsum was used to prevent sticking when needing to shake a jar. so if that is true you should be fine with just adding oyster shells.

casing layer sounds good.

now after casing it is good to put the casing into a inncubater until the myc breaks through, then put into fruiting chamber, this lets the myc establish itself before putting up fruits.

you are well on your way, hope you have good luck.

any more ? just ask i am sure you will get good advice here. at least most of the time
:tongue2:

How many cakes is up to you really. I use to like to goof off and make big cakes and crap.



If ya look at this pic you can see the cake pieces all pilled up



So if I made this thing work just think what your casing is gonna do!!!
