My first babies
    #2042724 - 10/25/03 08:37 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

After much learning I have finally harvested the first few friends that opened. Their wet weight is apx 13 grams. It is PHawaiian done on personally ground rice flour. I eventually incubated in a double rubbermaid container that has the bottom filled with water and a fish heater inserted into the center of the top rubbermaid at a steep angle. No leaks so far and nice even temps without a bubbler in the water. They fruited in a large rubbermaid container with a Clearmist 2s humidifier that is connected by 3" dryer hose to the top of the fruiting chamber. The dryer hose sags a bit. The sag is important, without the steam goes straight in and overheats the chamber. I leave the edge of the container by the inlet raised apx 1/4" to allow excess heat to escape. Humidity stays high and the temp at the bottom is basically controllable and for me stable at 78'F.

Cheers to all of you.

Yes it is thank-you. I am very much looking forward to the rest of the harvest. I have many more pins forming and existing on that cake and 2 others.

I am thinking that it is best to harvest them after or slightly before the caps open. DOes this harm/slow the cake at all? I have added a tube in the center and just added some sterilized cold water to the center of the cake that I just harvested from. Any comments?

Congratulations! Beautiful fruits. Keep researching and learning and enjoy the fruits of your labor! Isn't sooo nice to be a daddy or a mommy for the first time?

Hey everybody. Just got home from work and harvested another 16 grams wet!!!!!! I was amazed. There are still more pins comming on this cake. My second cake will be ready for it's first harvest by morning. All 11 stalks are fat and just starting to open... My third cake I have the highest hopes for so far as the mycellium is very thick on it and it is covered with big and small knots. Now that I know I am eager to start again, by the end of this week my Karo water will be ready.

Cheers everyone.
