First grow, B+ kit, harvest time soon???
    #24788446 - 11/17/17 02:19 AM (25 days, 5 hours ago)

Hi all!

So, rewind about a month and a half. I decided I wanted to try mushrooms for the first time, I don't like the idea of buying from someone I don't know (as I've recently moved country), so I tried searching for mushrooms around my local area and had some difficulty as it was my first time, no surprise there. Unfortunately winter then took hold and temperatures have been near freezing since, so it seemed mushroom season was well and truly over.

Three weeks ago I decided that I'd try using an B+ growing kit, ordered from the Netherlands. Two weeks ago today the parcel arrived with heatmat, and the container of mycelium already part opened. It seemed like it wasn't closed properly when sent to me as the tag was still in place. Anyway I emailed said company and continued with the growing procedure. Filled with cool water for 12 hours, removed lid and drained, placed in supplied growbag, left in area of indirect sunlight, and misted once/twice per day, depending on how 'misty' the side of the bag was looking.

First few pins showed up after 7 days (unfortunately I haven't take any pictures up until now). Things have been going well (I think) since then, and what you see now is 2 weeks worth of growing. The largest two seem to be beginning to open (from the pictures it is hard to see). But I'm waiting until the are truly 'open' and the tops begin to flatten out (or at least look like the pictures of other growers successful attempts at growing B+).



There seem to be a few side pins, not sure if that'll be a problem for the following flushes, but all in all I'm happy and looking forward to harvesting and having my first experience with magic mushrooms.

I'd like to add that I know a lot of people don't see the sense in these grow kits, but for someone like me who hasn't ever tried mushrooms, and isn't sure how the experience will be, it didn't make sense to invest in a proper growing setup, not just yet at least.

Anyhow apologies for blabbering, hopefully these will be ready very soon, and I'll probably be going down the mushroom tea route using freshies, then drying the rest. I'll write a trip report when the time comes (maybe this weekend, maybe next). Thanks for reading my entrance into the world of magic mushrooms.

Peace out :smile:

Yep, harvest when the white part under the cap (veil) breaks.

Those shrooms need air, poke some holes in that bag.

After you pick them, mist the substrate and you may get another flush.

Thanks for the advice! The pic doesn't show it but there is a venting 'patch' up the top of the bag. I'll put a few extra vent holes in it though.

Is the extra ventilation needed more when the mushrooms are beginning to open, or just in general? Just thinking in case I can modify the bag to make it better for the second flush.

That actually looks like a really good flush for one of those suffocation bags

So Friday evening the first (largest) mushroom has just broken the veil under the cap, but I couldn't be bothered to harvest as it was quite last to I waited until Saturday morning, and this is what I woke up to.



Just over 220 g fresh in total, I had planned on making tea fresh, but the weather got really shitty and I didn't feel too good. I didn't want to rush into it and I quite liked the idea of being able to go outside in some nice frosty but dry weather. Also resoaked the growing medium and that's set up as before, hoping for another batch but quite honestly I'm happy with what I've got, should last me a while anyway!

So they've been drying by fan for the last 36 hours, they now weigh in at ~50 g, so I've put a slice or two in any stems that are still soft and tomorrow evening I'll be putting them in a large tupperware container with a load of silica gel pouches (food safe), and will keep an eye on the mass until it gets close to weighing 10% of the original. Then by next weekend I should be ready for launch :smile:

Looking good! Nice flush for a kit. Hope it will give you many more flushes.
