1st grow in 10+yrs!!
    #24990799 - 02/13/18 10:17 AM (10 days, 17 hours ago)

Hey guys,

I've been reading through this site for weeks looking to get back into the world of mycology. Myself and a few friends followed a brf tek in 2006 so i wanted to try it again. Following some of the more popular teks here I started 12/10/17 with 36 1/2pint brf cakes. By 1/18/18 I had them 100% colonized, dunked, and fruiting. Using just a brf and verm mixture I ended up with just under 300 grams dry.

After that small trial and error I figured I'd try out the WBS tek. Using docs tek on 2/8/18 I made up 47 qts of wbs spawn, 3 days into it I noticed small patches of mycelium to pop up all inculcated with MS syringes. I'm thinking there About 40-50% colonized now, hoping it goes faster then brf.

Lastly I have 2 56qt monos with a 50/45/5 cvg, that I spawned with 7pts brf. Being 7 days into that colonization it seems to be taking well. I peeked yesterday and there are small white "feelers" coming from the top of substrate. Sure hope all is well lol

1st set of brf


I was so excited!!


I started drying using the fan/silica method but was unable to dry my silica once saturated. Ended up using a dehydrator best decision yet!

Direct to here.

Top left corner there is a pics section. And you can upload there.

My other phone had a better camera and I would have to resize the photos and that can be a pain.

This cheap phone takes grainy pictures that upload no problem, I love it

My name is not a proclamation but a reminder of how to carry myself.

I must remember that the world was a much simpler place when I knew little, and with every daily intake of knowledge comes the awareness of how unaware I truly am.

It is my conclusion, then, that one will always be a newcomer and one might as well learn to be humble as well as learned.

Thanks dude! I was clicking on the wrong "continue" button haha

Here's my first go at wbs inoculated 2/10/18 I'm amazed how fast they're colonizing.


Pic of my cvg brf tub 7 days into colonization


From what I've been learning on here everything looking normal.

Oh, yeah. I was stuck at the never ending click continue chain before too, haha. Takes some getting used to but this place has lifetimes worth of grow logs and knowledge all for the digging thru.

Welcome back to the hobby my friend!

I'm hoping you guys can help me, this the first mono I've ever done following bods tek. I have 2 tubs that were spawned 9 days again, my question is are they ready for fruiting conditions?

Well both brf/cvg mono tubs worked out good! They are 7-8 days into fruiting only misted maybe twice and there's hundreds of fruits all caps are still closed though. I just made up 3 more wbs/cvg monos I'll be excited to see how those turn out!!



Do you guys think I can expect higher yield with wbs/cvg vs using brf? I used 6qts spawn for each 54qt tub.

Also I'm using up the last of my brf cakes  I have maybe a dozen pints just went into sgfc 5 days ago. My question there is am I using too much perlite? It seem like i have 1 sgc doing 10x better then the other two. I've used these sgfc's before so I know they're good.

I have maybe 6 inches perlite in 54qt sgfc is this too much? I used maybe 2 inches in the one that's doing good.



This seems to be doing really good!


And these are not...

That third picture is showing a bunch of aerial mycelium, which if I'm not mistaken means you need some more FAE? That tub looks sweet though
