My first grow and an introduction!
    #24969478 - 02/05/18 07:01 PM (3 years, 3 months ago)

Hi everyone! I've been lurking on shroomery for about a month now. I've been trying to find shrooms for my bf for months with zero luck so I decided why not just grow them myself. I was so happy to find this site and community. You guys have already been so much help!

I inoculated my first jars 6 days ago and I am pretty happy with the results so far. No signs of contamination and lots of growth. Brf and verm in 1/2 pint  jars and inoculated with B+.

That's a sweet love story right there.  Brf cakes are a good starting point. Make sure you leave them in the jar at least a week after they appear 100% colonized. I used to take mine out and dunk them under water in a large bowl in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. Then, rinse them and roll them in dry vermiculite. Of course the old shotgun fruiting chamber. They'll produce enough to trip a few times. Out of all those jars expect a few to contaminate.

Too bad they won't be ready for Valentine's day lol

I did so many because I expected some to get contaminated especially on my first run. I have some experience with agar and sterile techniques from working in a biology lab so I definitely plan on ramping up this hobby. I wanted to stick to the basics this time tho.

Thanks for the replies!

I'd say I probably have 3 days max before I hit 100% and start the one week timer for full colonization. Still no signs of contamination. Is there a point at which I'm probably safe or do I need to keep inspecting them everyday? I tried to search around for an answer but didn't have much luck.

Well, once they reach around 90%, they will be harder to contaminate. Once the mycelium has established itself its very resistant to invading contams. However, they will eventually contaminate because no spawn is completely clean. Once you get a few flushes out of the cake, they will weaken and become more prone to contamination. Usually it a forest green contam called trich. For me, its usually a slimy bacteria. These contams are always present, but are not usually a problem after the mycelium is well established.

That's what I was thinking but I'm so nervous about the jars getting contaminated I wanted confirmation. Thank you!

Here's an updated photos. Just waiting for those little patches on the side to fill in which shouldn't be long with how fast it's growing.

Those are very strong looking genetics in those jars. You have two kinds of mycelium. One is cottony white and the other is ropey and stringy called rhizomorphic. You have the strong rhizomorphic mycelium. I love when i see this on agar which can be hard to get. These should be very aggressive and potent just judging by the strong looking genetics.

My next goal is to get set up for agar and try cloning them. Especially if the genetics look good.

I've actually never done shrooms before so these will be my first and I'm growing them! Super excited

Magicivy i hope you got something else planned for the mister cause while those cakes look good im pretty sure they wont be done by tomorrow. Im beginning to think that women are better cultivators than men. They are just naturally cleaner beings. My wife is such a clean freak germaphob that she could probably inoculate agar in open air and do tranfers with her finger tip as an inoculation loop. Generally speaking, men are just dirty pigs. We have to wear hazmat suits and our cultures still has some form of contamination.

Alright so I birthed my cakes last night. About to set up my sgfc while I let them soak a little longer.

Quick question. I know micropore tape is not recommend on the chamber but I have cockroaches so I need to keep them out. How much could it hurt the shrooms? They did fine with it in the lid of the jars. Do I need to fan more often?
