Some shit for brains, who gives a Shit "TEK" (not a tek)
    #24958179 - 01/31/18 11:29 PM (3 years, 3 months ago)

So, I had some half pint jars that I filled with PCed seeds and random ass shit that the spoiled ass African grey parrots left behind. I inoculated them with clean agar. Used coffee filters and bands covered with aluminum foil because most people parroted against the efficacy of coffee filters. Mycelium appeared clean to my inexperienced eyes, fully colonized, and smelled like mushrooms as I spawned it. I spawned it to coir. The whatever tub was made from a cardboard box with a trashbag liner, and some random ass plastic cover retains humid air for it. Pictures will follow because this place over complicates things. I highly suspect this abomination from an inexperienced grower will fruit something.

You will see pictures tomorrow. A failure or success will be documented as things progress.

PS/Edit: Picture progression will go here, for better or worse.

:girlofdisapproval:

Wait... So let me get this straight.

You took the leftover food from some spoiled parrots that only eat the good stuff.

Used coffee filters as a barrier.

Spawned into a random ass cardboard box lined with a garage bag?

Jesus if this works then the bar will drop once again for this hobby lmao

I know people have grown on a books but this is something else.

Good luck!  :leocheers:

The coir was prepared by dumping a 650g brick into a huge pot of boiling water. Ratios came from a Bodhisatta tek. This pot sat for a couple weeks covered in foil. It was reheated and sat at pasteurization temps for a while. After it cooled it was checked for acceptable moisture before mixing with spawn. It seemed dry so it was misted while mixing with spawn.

Here are some pictures

It should be noted that this is a relatively small box (8.5 by 14.5 by 7.5 inches tall) and that I didn't have enough spawn to use the entire 650 g of coir.

Does the * around tek signify that it's not a tek? There's no results yet. TEKs are proven methods that are reliable. This thread is just you getting lucky or learning the hard way.

It's not a tek, changed the title to clarify.

I'll learn something, I'm certain of that. I might get lucky and grow something too. This wasn't hard though, it's just something I threw together while I waited on materials for proven methods. It won't bother me much if it flops entirely. I hadn't any real plans to try grain til I absorbed a little more info or saw the need but I had so many clean plates of mycelium and thought "hey, why not?" while I was feeding the spoiled racket makers. So I saved what they wouldn't eat, PCed it, and now here we are.

I'll grant that the douche tone of my original post was unnecessary.

Exposed grain are usually vectors for contamination. That's why most teks suggest covering the grain with something that the myc can colonize.

That being said, I wish you the best of luck on your grow. Nothing wrong with trying something a little different and certainly nothing wrong with getting a harvest.

Having success will be one thing, being able to repeat that success with the same methods over and over is the hallmark of what we like to call a "proven Tek". However what works for me might not work for you and vice versa, which is why we have so many teks floating around on these pages.

Any idea what types of grain you have working there?

"...suggest covering the grain with something that the myc can colonize."

Are you saying I should cover the top with a little coir, I'd considered it.

"Any idea what types of grain you have working there?"

Here's the ingredient list. I just used what our spoiled pets wouldn't eat. They primarily target the peanuts and sunflower seeds.

Whole Corn,Heat-treated Soybeans,Wheat,Sunflower Seed,Oat Groats,Oats,Safflower Seed,Ground Corn,White Millet,Yellow Split Peas,Whole Peanuts,Green Split Peas,Canary Grass Seed,Red Millet,Pumpkin Seeds,Dried Red Chili Peppers,Dried Diced Carrots,Squash Seeds,Raisins,Dried Cranberries,Dried Pineapple,Dried Banana Chips,Wheat Middlings,Rolled Oats,Soybean Oil,Soybean Meal,Corn Gluten Meal,Dried Alfalfa Flakes,Dicalcium Phosphate,Monocalcium Phosphate,Yeast Culture,Dried Egg,Maltodextrin,Dried Cabbage Flakes,Salt,Dried Crushed Red Peppers,Calcium Carbonate,Propylene Glycol,Wheat Germ Oil,Dried Celery Flakes,Potassium Chloride,Magnesium Oxide,Titanium Dioxide,Manganese Sulfate,Ferrous Carbonate,Mineral Oil,Zinc Oxide,Vitamin A Palmitate,Carotene,dl-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Source of Vitamin E),Choline Chloride,Niacin,Copper Sulfate,Riboflavin,d-Calcium Penthothenate,Pyridoxine Hydrochloride,Lactose,Monoglycerides,Diglycerides,Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative),Thiamine Hydrochloride,Vitamin D3 Oil,Vitamin B12 Supplement,Potassium Iodide,Sodium Thiosulfate,Citric Acid (Preservative),Rosemary Extract,Color Added: FD&C Red#40, FD&C Yellow #5, FD&C Yellow #6, FD&C Blue #1

Ha. I won't be shocked if it fruits decently.

But are you sure you should be feeding your parrots all that shit?

Probably not. The fuckers will probably outlive me anyway. They have an average captive lifespan of 50 years.

Yeah, i know an old bird dude, bred and sold all sorts for years, swears some of them can live to be over a century. Then again, these crazy-ass geriatric old bird people seem to lose track of time real easily

Yeah, no shit. My bird friend has an old parrot that he says was left in his care years ago when an old bird-lady friend of his died. Well apparently the old broad set up a trust fund for the bird before she died and all of it's needs are covered for the rest of it's life. Dude swears the bird is at least 90

I wouldn't mess around with it now that you have it colonizing. It's been my experience that the less you fuck with your grow while it is colonizing the better success rates you will experience.

That being said it's your grow, do what you want.  I always mix my spawn and bulk and then cover the mix with more bulk. In this particular scenario coir would be the bulk.

Thousands of shroomery threads had a germination orgy in a feeble mind and the following is a small sample of what is colonizing.

Myc is traveling through the coir. No signs of anything foul so far. Crazy how quickly it recovered from initial spawning. Would like to time lapse it.
