Psilocybe cubensis "Equador" on wbs cakes with coir.
    #2227283 - 01/08/04 03:14 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have decided to try using coco coir in place of verm in the PF tek. I was out of brown rice so I used wild bird seed flower. I know that Anno tried this twice, PC'd for 1hour each time and had contams each time. I believe that since coir is organtic, it will start to break down and rot when PC'd that long. I will pasteurize(sp) and use a liquid culture syringe on it.

Dec 30 2003

I injected some karo water with some EQ's and placed in the incubator.


Jan 6 2004 8pm

I put some coir and water in a plastic container. I put enuff water to completely saturate the coir, and placed in my closet. I hope to get any contams that ARE in the coir to grow.

Jan 7 10pm

I squeezed as much of the water out of the coir as I could, nuked for 5min. I added wbsf and water untill it "felt" right, nuked for 5min. Then I filled 3 small candle jars, covered with plastic wrap, nuked for 5min and let cool.





I set up my clean room, made the karo syringes, injected, covered with foil and placed in incubator.


Now only time will tell.



Jan 11, 10pm


Is that what I think it is???????



There are 2 out of the 3 jars showing growth on the bottom. This one has the most growth and was close to the glass. The other one was just barely showing and it would slide away from the glass making it hard to get a good pix.

Jan 12

All 3 jars are showing growth.

Jan 16 New Pix


The bottom 2 pix are from the same jar. It is showing the most growth.












Jan 18

The last 3 pix are from the same jar.

Jan 22 1am

Ready to fruit???? Are they contaminated????








I think Im just going to fruit them in the container they are in. I just want to see if the will make mushies. If this works I will do some 1/2pint's and case them!!!


Jan 22 6am

I took the jar on the right and put it in the fruiting chamber. I put a coffee filter over the other 2, turned them over and placed back in the FC. If this cake produces mushies...I will case the other 2.

I will post a pix of the cake in the FC when I get more memory.



Jan 31

PINS






Feb 3

Mush!!!!!!!



Feb 12

The casing got contaminated. I blame it on my ignorance more than the coir. I havent had much luck with casings. I will try this again with half pints. Im going to try to get my grow room set up a little better first.

So is this WBS mixed with the Coir?

Well if you fail, we'll add that to Anno's 2, and call it "something not to be done". Keep us informed!

What kinda attitude is that? Gotta be positive! I know, I know - Anno failed twice, but he did try ... TWICE :laugh:

You will get some "I told ya so"'s for sure if this goes belly up, no doubt. You obviously have some faith in the project or you wouldn't have put in the time and effort.

GOOD LUCK

I have plenty of hope. Im 95 percent sure this will work. The only thing that Im not positive about is the syringe. This was my first time to do the karo tek.
I have many more experiments to try.
I just got an 18 quart PC. It will hold 24 half pint jars. As soon as the jars I have incubating go to the fruiting chamber....Im gonna have a FAT GROW GOING!!!!!!!!!!!

Then after that, Im going to try whole grains!

It's all about having fun, man and it sounds like you are.

Not to get too off topic of this thread, but you should give popcorn a go. Extremely cheap medium and the results so far for me have been great!

When I get the pint jars that are incubating now are fruited. Then I will try some whole grain tek. I havent decided which one yet. I have read the popcorn tek and may do that.

I still have some ??? about doing grains tho.

WBS is very easy.  Just go out to your local Wal-mart, buy penningtons wild bird seed, 5 bucks for 20 lbs. Then, go to  Fungifun.com and use the guide there labeled "Grain for simple minds"  The water content is perfect if you do this, you just have to shake them right after they are done pc'ing.

Well, the results are always perfect for me, they might be different depending on your birdseed. :wink:
