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?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

I missed a pic on day 13 but here's 14

~336 hours (14 days)



There are some pins showing. I'll count that as somewhat of a victory. There's a somewhat obvious one in the upper left.

You might notice some of the yellow and/or bluing spots. I yanked one of those out and the mycelium that blued was on something resembling a bean. I wonder if it had to do with what it's spawning on or the surface condition upkeep of an inexperienced grower. I've got five more half pints of the same mixture almost ready for spawning. Going to attempt another mini-bulk grow with it. We'll see if I get the same results.

Some shit for brains reporting in.

~360 hours (day 15)



There are about 10 pins to be seen. Where's Waldo?

Here's a pic of a cake in action also.

Loving the ghetto bum tub! Reminds me of way back we used a box and a bag for a redneck ice chest. Now I want a bum tub! Looks like that fucker is going to fruit for you. That's good shit man.  :thumbup:

Thank you all, by the way. This likely wouldn't have happened without this place. I've got a week of vacation starting Monday. I know what I'm doing Monday or Tuesday...

~408 hours (17 days)



Here are some BRF cakes too.



Edited to add:
So, some shit for brains drunk out of his mind motherfucker was mucking around in the "shroom" room and knocked the trashbag carboard box tub off its pedestal. Sub broke into 3 or 4 pieces. The obviously damaged shroom starts were eaten. :laugh:

Too drunk right now but the aftermath will be photographed tomorrow.

I like this. I'm plotting and planning and making notes and you just jumped out of the plane with a backpack and will figure it out on the way down. Respect.

So, some shit for brains had never tripped before and consumed 7 dried grams from his BRF cakes and went mental and destroyed the tub. He saw him self and didn't like what he saw. After he came back to earth he salvaged the mangled fruits out of the bag and they're currently drying. He's a glutton for punishment.

There were some awesome fruits and he meant to grab a pic yesterday. Sorry folks.

Were the cops outside and coming to get you at the time? The feds moments away from kicking in your door.

I've had some goes at being paranoid while tripping and came close to trashing all of my stuff. Sorry man. It's not funny, but funny at the same time.

At least you know your shrooms work! :rofl2:

Yea, it's fucking hilarious. I've got two phones and they started ringing simultaneously. One stopped and the other didn't quit ringing. I tried to answer but it but all I got on the line were beeps separated by half second pauses. I finally disconnected it. I think that was a tipping point.

At least I was tripping too hard to scrap everything. It helps that I wasn't really sure how to properly dispose of it and then I finally came to terms with it and didn't care.

Trying to come to terms with mortality was worse...

I'm thinking I might re-hydrate the demolished sub, pack it down into the box, and see what happens. It all remained in the bag it colonized and fruited in. There's a couple shredded BRF cakes in there now too...:facepalm:

Wow, you ate 7 grams on your first go? That's pretty intense dude. I always turn my phone off when I trip. People trying to blow you up and what not can fuck with your experience. Glad you're alright. Live and learn my friend

The day before I tried .7 grams as a thresh hold, then a gram, and another gram all separated by a couple hours. All that did was give me nausea and a headspace change, no visuals.

Yesterday was a gram, then 3 grams ground into tea, and then 1 hour later another three grams ground and mixed with water. Didn't have any nausea at least. Another thing that tipped me over was a good hit. I haven't smoked in months since I have a decent job that I could make a career out of.

I was having some nice visuals and was in a good place till I took a hit and the phone wouldn't quit ringing.

I'll take your advice about the phone and also try it without mixing things next time.

Edited to add:

The mangled fruits that I harvested from the bag came out to 10.050 grams dried. That was ten grams from the first flush that didn't even really get to finish, but it was close. This came from four, not entirely full, half pint jars of parrot food

I hydrated the broken up sub and lightly packed it back down. I basically left the plastic cover on the whole time and misted maybe four times between then and now. Quite a few of the fruits have "fuzzy feet" and they aren't the most aesthetically pleasing :shrug:. They're all cleaned up and dehydrating as I type. Hydrating the sub again. We'll see what happens. 

Here are some pics from in the middle of harvesting.
