Anyone ever seen stumps get all fuzzy like this a day after harvest? Is that mold?

Before you start...Do you have a Pressure Cooker and a Dehydrator? I highly recommend getting both!

so after birthing and putting back in the jar I simply put a Ziploc bag on top? Do I need to poke holes into the bag? and do I leave the bag on the entire fruiting stage?

what is the overall best temperature that you recommend? the room temperature I have here is 75-78

Temp is fine. No holes in bag. Don't seal bag too tightly.

Yup. I rested the seal on the lip of the jar where the lid screws on. Made sure to take off the bag once or twice a day for a second to get some air exchange. I also misted the inside of the bag but I don't know if that really matters.

Be patient for eight days or so. Then.... Eurkea

Looks good homie! :thumbup:

No need to mist the bag.

I only remove the bag when the verm layer needs misting.

And for harvest.

First grow here - decided to do two small jars and three bulk, shoeboxes doing well with moisture but finding the tops of the jars are always dry and getting one or two tiny shrooms (aborts ?) right at the bottom of both jars, any answers on this? Anyone else get this?

Use a thin top layer, coir or verm or both. Putting the bag all the way down the jar, instead of the zippy bit right at the threads, seems to hold more moisture to. Just move it back up when they need the space.

Yeah I have a thin layer of Verm, I was thinking of adding some coir but I’m only at day 8 so I might wait it out a few more days. Just thought it was weird the only place it was pinning on BOTH was the darkest.

I will lower the bag today.

Mist lightly and regularly, rather than a bunch once a day

hey,
everyone just checking in to give you my update and see if there's anything I can improve on. some cakes are getting white and others are not? everything was done on the same day with same procedure light misting twice a day once before work once after work. And the temp is a steady 75-77 degrees F.

I got some myc spreading into the dry verm layer...I'm assuming that means I'm misting too much? Should I add some more dry verm so there is no exposed myc or should it be good?



The other jar in the pics is on its second flush, has been over a week and nothing...does it look alright? When should I get concerned?

Once the jar is fully colonized, could you tape the jar bellow the lid line with an opaque tape? Or even just put the jar into a paper bag trimmed to size, in order to avoid side pins? The mushrooms use light as a trigger to let them know when it’s ok to open up, so if they don’t get any light from the side of the jar, would they not just grow longer stems and break the surface before blooming?

Light doesn't cause side pins.

Hi all, I'm starting my first grow today:laugh:, after a couple of months "research" in the forums and tbh the principle of the brf tek is straight forward enough but there are sooo many different views and opinions on every single step that my head is pretty melted.:confused:

I'm panicking over will my jars be ok? Will my enviro be ok? Should i use filter tape? What about a fruiting chamber? Ive read about only 1 out of 6 jars actually being successful, the list goes on (fuck me I'll be needing the shrooms just to get over the panic and anxiety of growing them).:frown:

Im afraid that buy not having the exact set up for anygiven tek ill end up taking bits from each one and it all ending in a fuck up, but this tek seems to be a no bullshit, fucking get the spores in there and get them grown kind of tek (which suits me).

So that's what I'm going to do. If it's ok with everyone could I post a few pics along the way just to make sure I'm on the right track? I'm sure all us noobs get on the same way and the experienced guys are answering the same shit day in day out. I will use the search as much as I can but like I say with so much info here it's not a case of finding the right thread more like finding the right paragraph or sentence.

Happy growing fellow mycologists :heart::mushroom2:
