Thanks. Hopefully it continues to go well.

Didn't think much had happened til I compared pics. Looks like most of the voids in the coir on the surface are lightly filled.

I hope some can appreciate it. It may still fail miserably but all who follow will find out. I suspect, if you use your head and try to understand how contamination works and how mushrooms grow, there are a lot of ways one can grow shrooms. Some ways just may take a little more care and attention to detail than others. I've got some BRF cakes doing their thing in an SGFC, by the book, at the moment. I'm all about following what works to a "t" but I also like to understand why "what works" works.

I've read over and over again that coffee filters don't do shit. However, the typical filtration of a coffee filter is 3 to 9 microns and coffee filters aren't uniform in their pores but if you layer three of them it's a pretty slim chance that voids in filtration from one filter to the next line up. Additionally people often make comparisons to various contam sizes but, aside from maybe mold spores, contaminants typically hitch a ride on something much larger than themselves. With three filters, my suspicion is that, even if a mold spore makes it though the first one, the second or third one will likely catch it. I also covered the top with aluminum foil to limit evaporative loss and so a contaminant would have to travel up between foil and the side of the jar to even wind up on the filters.

On a side note, my SFD's arrived the other day and I'll be using them instead of coffee filters. Messing with foil and coffee filters is a pain in the ass. The coffee filters are all damp coming out of the PC and have to dry in SAB before opening/closing the jars or they'll rip. I'm also sure an SFD makes this operation a little more fool proof.

Edited to add: Don't know where I got the 3 to 9 number for the pore size. Everything I'm finding now indicates a coffee filter filters down to 10-20 microns. The reasoning still stands but the filters are worse than I originally thought. I've seen other threads with filters under a microscope, but I don't recall seeing measurements. Acquired a microscope calibration slide and may post some pictures with some measurements tomorrow.

I'm super excited to see what happens I like your thinking! And I mean how else is one to find out what does or doesn't work and why? (Besides what we already know of course)Experimenting is always fun stuff! :mushroom2:

That makes two of us. Expecting it to flop terribly on the other hand.

I've got some more left-behind scraps colonizing in jars. Fear I made them too dry because I was afraid of leaving them too moist. They're colonizing, but slower than I remember the stuff in this box going. I'll let it do what it's going to. It's fascinating watching mycelium reach across a substrate. Must be strange having a life, ha.

If nothing else I got some BRF jars doing what they're supposed to.

Nothing new. I drank a pint of vodka in the last hour. Is that excessive? Here's another shot of the whatever receptacle. Just overly misted.

Thanks for enabling my alcoholism. I'd be bloated as fuck and feel like doing nothing in order to get the same buzz on beer, that can't be healthy...

Kind of funny that I can drink myself nearly to death and show up on the job "good to go" the next day but god forbid if trace amounts of other things show up in my blood.

Well, whether or not you realize it, you're enabling mine too, so don't worry about it; we're even- it's gin and tonic tonight

And yeah, "funny" is one way to put it:stoned:

~216 hours (9 days)

Kinda concerned about the bluish blob at top closer to the left side. Noticed after some over misting. Don't know if it's bruising or if there's some mold hiding under some myc. Time will tell. Doesn't really show up in the picture.



On a positive note, this pin recovered from a dunk and roll a few days ago.

Over misting under misting :drunk: :shrug: Decided it was too dry and upped my misting.




Here's a pic of some BRF cakes. Something is for sure happening at least. Big pin is growing a little pin brother off to the right.



If double posting is an issue, someone let me know and I'll just start editing my posts for this thread.

Double posting is only an issue if done less than 24 hrs after your last post- don't worry about it.

As for ghetto-tub, i remain hopeful that she will make us proud. Thanks for keeping us updated, brother

~264 hours (11 days)



~288 hours (12 days)




Opinions, advice? I'm more than willing to hear it. I think I'm over misting it. I've been paranoid about it drying out.

The routine is basically leaving a plastic bag draped over it while I'm gone, then misting and leaving it partially uncovered while I'm home. I think I'm going to mist less and give it more cover.
