Inexperience grower looking for advice - Pics
    #24963012 - 02/02/18 11:48 PM (3 years, 3 months ago)

Hello Shoormy,

Pretty green mycologist here looking for some advice. I have done cakes before with some success but these are my first Monotubs and the results are pretty weak. 

   

These are the TEKs I used:
Bod's easy AF bucket tek
noobieshroomie's WBS TEK


I let the tub consolidate fully and everything seemed to be on track but the fruits are very small and some are already starting to open. The tub continues to pin too.  I put it into fruiting mode 6 days ago and it pinned immediately. The temp in the room is a constant 73 degrees with a fan going 24/7 (not pointed at my tubs). The strain is B+.

The most pertinent questions I have are:
Why the fruits are so small?
Should I harvest the fruits that are opening and let the rest keep growing?

Any advice on getting larger fruits would be welcome.
Thanks.

everything appears to be in order.  They are not done growing, give them a little more time.  The caps will be more yellow when mature instead of dark brown like they are now.  The left pic in my signature is B+.  As you can see,  most of those were small too.  Genetics and certain environmental conditions can contribute to small size.  Second flush kicks out larger mushrooms usually.

1. Genetics and or spawn isn't 100% clean.

2. Yes. Pick them as they open up.

I've had some derpy fruits like that before and right after the first flush it went green.

Here are the pictures.

Thanks for the advice guys.  I don't think they are done growing I was just concerned that some are already opening.  I don't want them to dump their spores in my tub. 

Is it normal procedure to harvest the ones that open while the others grow?

Pic the ones the veil has ripped on, atleast that’s what I do. I had some Costa Rican’s that were small the first flush and then the next two flushes were normal larger fruits. So that could happen here, especially since it’s MS (I’m assuming). The cool thing about small fruits is they are extra potent per weight. I just made some tea with 2.8 grams of those small Costa Rican’s I mentioned, and when they kicked in I felt like I had done like 5 grams. I wasn’t expecting it. 20 minutes after I drank the tea I was in full fledged shroom mode, it was awesome, plus my wife had just put on the movie Bad Batch, OMG! That movie is awesome to trip out to.

Hope yours will be potent like that!!!

Im thinking you probably got some bacteria in there. It happens. Harvest them as they open up. Hopefully you'll get a better second flush.

The reason I think bacteria is because colonization doesn't look very even on top.  Usually you you see a nice white layer of myc.  We're these tubs cased (top casing layer)?

Okay then that explains the uneven colonization. My gut still says contamination but might be too early to tell. Could just be some funny looking shrooms. Here's hoping the second flush gets you a nice canopy. :cheers:
