logging my first attempt (advises?)
    #24899898 - 01/09/18 05:03 AM (3 years, 3 months ago)

Hello shroomery...

Hope I'm at the right forum..

It's my first ever attempt at growing i have read quite a few teks and i know I should be doing brf cakes since I'm a first timer but I really fell in love w the monotub pics I saw wile researching.
Gonna post pics with dates and hope you guys could give me some feedback.
Anything wrong or suspucious please let me know..

spores injected 24/12/17 my Christmas present for me :smile:

1-this was 28/12/17.






Had to travel for new year's 2 weeks

2-this was yesterday 8/1/2018






Top view same day







I did 6 jars they are all more or lesss looking the same. I have the impression that the popcorn is a bit dry if so what can I do? and I never shook the jars. Should i shake?

Thanks guys. Gonna post more pics in a week or two so you can tell me what you think.


Edited just to say that it all came out of a spore print. And they are mazatapecs.

Yes i would shake asap. If u shake id say they should be done within 5 or 6 days after the shake. And u cant do anything about the dry seed now. Wait it out.

What bulk tek are u gonna do? Since ur a beginner, i would suggest coir. Coirs easy and cheap. And nothing else is needed with it. Alotta pros use only coir too.

So coir is better against contaminants? Gonna go study the coir teks! I like the horse poop idea cuz I know the shrooms like it. But don't wanna fuck up before I get a print out of this first batch.

Coirs great against contams. And its easy and clean to use and cheap. And it doesnt need to be pasturized. Just semi pasturized, look up bucket tek. All i use is coir and i get good yield. Well i use coir and wbs. Works great tho.

No problem man. Ull see alotta people on here advise using coir. Its just awesome imo. 3 bricks for $7 at petco. 1 brick equals about 7-9 qts once its hydrated. Bucket tek can also be done with a cooler if u dont have a bucket

You can shake if you'd like, but know that it will set the growth back a day or so. It's not a bad thing, but you might find yourself wondering what happened to everything. Shaking is meant to redistribute the growth throughout the jar so it colonizes faster/evenly. Some will also use it to test for contams. If it's shaken and doesn't bounce back, it's supposed to be a sign that there's some contamination being fought.

You should edit and remove the specific sponsor you got the print from. It's against forum rules. Just fyi

Thanks crombie. Removed the sponsor.
I already shaked the jars. No signs of strange smells and collors.
I don't mind if it takes a few days longer if I get clean jars it's a good thing. Better to find out now if the jars have problems.

Thanks alot.

Looks Good, I tried the H/P story once with the pillow cases and everything, honestly, Coir is the bee's knees, it's just so easy with low contam risk.

Hey nube424 and all shroomery members.

So I did shake the jars as advised. Out of the 6 jars 3 I would say are ready and I'm woried that I might loose them if I whait for the other 3. I say that cuz i see some yellowing in the some parts.

2 pics is the yellowing.




1 pic.. is this done?


2 pics.. can i wait for this 2 before the others go bad? If so how long shoul I wait?





Think this guy is gonna lose the race into the monotub.



Thanks in advanced guys

One more thing. Been searching round town and I can't find lizard coir. Do you think that it can be a problem on bucket tek? Sould i do a proper pasteurization? I can send you a pic when i get home. I bought the one I found says it's organic. And another thing is. On the tek he uses a 650g brick and mine is 600g can you help me tweaking the recepy to my brick?

You think it's contaminated? Most of my jars look like that. What is it?

Ye I did notice that but gathered he was just going to try fruit? Next time if I was you I’d go agar first before grain really simple and then you can get clean spawn and g2g

So if I can't use them for spawn what would you advise?
Can I just try and fruit in the jar? Think I could do separate trays w the rizo jars or just trash them? Is it contaminated or is it more likely to get contamination?
