psilocybe cubensis "Creeper" pf-tek cased
    #2078425 - 11/06/03 10:13 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hello.  This is my first attempt in growing magic mushrooms.  I have had experience in growing weed so I thought I would try this out.  Any ways here is what I have done so far.

The creeper spores used in this grow are from Ralphster, I am very impressed with his service.  Thank you.

October 27, 2003
I mixed up my substrait of BRF and vermiculite according to the PF-Tek for simple minds.  http://www.fungifun.org/  I pressure cooked 12 jars for an hour at 15 pounds of pressure and let them to cool unopened for a full day.

October 28
I brought the cooled jars in to my room and proceeded to spray Lysol.  I washed my hands with soap and then some alcohol.  I inoculated each jar with less than 1cc, probably about 3/4cc per jar.  After that was done I set them in my incubator (tub in a tub, 125w aquarium heater).  The incubator was set to only 75F.

October 30
After browsing the forums a bit I found my temps to be too low so I bumped the temp up to 84F and also added a small piece of tupperware into the chamber with water and couple splashes of h2o2 in it.  This was done to prevent the jars from drying out.

November 1
The first signs of growth are found!  I was so excited.

November 6
Apon checking all the jars again I have found a 4 jars or so to be at about 60-70% colonized.  A few and lagging behind a bit but all have good growth.  I am very surprised at how fast these jars are colonizing, it has only been 9 days since innoc and they are looking excellent!

November 7
Jars continue to grow fast.  Flipped the jars that are far along.

Here is a stack of the six best jars.


Here is a nice jar.  Only 10 days after innoc.


This is the only uncolonized patch in the whole jar.

No more room for the day. :frown:  I will keep you up to date.

November 12

Today I moved 10 of the 12 jars to the fridge in a black bag that was tied closed and boxed.  They will stay there till I get back to school the Monday after Thanksgiving.  I will not have enough time to case and finish before I leave, so this is the plan.  I will procede as normal upon my return.

All cakes in cold storage.

Pics of the two almost finished cakes to be birthed as cakes.


Stay tuned.   

December 4
Out of cold storage!
I cased the jars Sunday night, the 30th of November.  I cased them in coir, verm, and oyster shell.  They are in two 7x7x4 rubbermaid containers.  I put 7 in one and 4 in the other, kind of running a little comparison on yeild and such.  They are covered /w platic wrap and inncubating at 85F. 

I see a little bit of myc poking through three days after casing!  Here is a picture of one of the casings.  They both have a little patch.  Look in the upper left of the picture, BLOW IT UP!



Here is a closeup!


December 6
Just an update of both casing.  How long till fruiting chamber?

Casing 1, 7 half pints.


Casing 2, 4 half pints.


I was advised to patch some aggressive points, here are new pics!
Casing 1


Casing 2


December 7

Ok, I need some advice!  This is 24 hours after the last pictures when I patched.  What should I do?!?!  Patch more? Let it go?  Move to fruiting chamber, start light cycle and remove plastic wrap?  Help me out please!
Case 1

Case 2


December 11
I put the casing in the fruiting chamber on Monday the 8th.  They are under an 18" fluoro running 12/12, fanned 3 times a day and misted every other or when needed.  Here are pics

A close up


Another Closeup


Casing 1


Casing 2


December 16

PINS!
I have pins!  Yea!

Here is casing 1, casing 2 got a little contamed, had to hack it up a bit.


Another!


December 17

New pics!  I am getting a lot from the sides, what did I do?  Overall I am not too upset since it is my first casing though.



Another


December 18
New pic, out of the casing due to pins on the side



December 19

I think I am about ready to harvest, how does it look?





Harvest Update
After harvesting one flush from both casing I got 18.8 cracker dry grams.

Since I was gone I don't know if the next flushes will be anything good.  But the burma jars I innoc'd are about 90% colonized.  Next grow coming up!

Second Flush
Had to throw one casing.  The other wasn't taken care up much since I was out of town.  But I did get 2 large mushies out of it!

70 Wet grams!  So about 6-7g dry!  Here are some partially dry pics!





Please leave feedback on how I am doing!!!!!

When 20 to 30 % of the top is covered withh myc. Than you should put it in the fruiting chamber. Mist a few days till about 70% than increase air exchange and lower your misting.

I think it looks pretty damn good. May be a little wet, though. Also, you might want to patch up the aggressive points of mycelium. Good luck and good growing.

I just sprayed it before taking the picture, that is why it looks wet. Just put some more casing on the agressive points? Just a thin layer?

Oh, and you really don't need to spray your casing while it's incubating as long as you have a cover keeping the humidity up at around 95% or more. I see in your pictures you do have a cover, so, don't mist unless it looks too dry.
