Haha.  I'm sure you're right, but I don't know if I can stop checking 'em. xD  Very excited!  I have big plans for these.

Haha, yeah.  Gonna lead a mushroom army! :mushroom2:

Nah.  It's an experiment of sorts.  I'm gonna go on an extended trip, and write about the outcome.  Obviously, this will require a substantial harvest.  And this is just the beginning! :grin:

Originally, I was gonna shred 'em up and grow 'em bulk style in a monotub.  After thinking it over, however, I've decided to grow 'em separately.  It comes down to the thought of being shit outta luck if the whole batch goes south on me for some dumb reason.  So, until I get a little more experience, until I know what I'm looking for or looking out for, I'll keep 'em isolated in something simple and cheap.  I'm thinking 3-liter bottles.

Ideally, I'll grow in bulk style soon.  I need a bunch, and it's my understanding that bulk yields a larger, healthier harvest.  Plus, I love all the bulk pics I've seen around here.  When they're all growing in a patch together like that...  Looks pro.

Honestly it seems like the shoeboxes were easier to deal with than the jars. Just some coir and a plastic bin. Shred and mix.

UPDATE: DAY 8



So, the last jar still shows no signs of growth.  There's no mold or obvious contamination either, though...  I'm thinking I'll give it a good shake, maybe a mix.  There are definitely lots of spores still in there.  Then again, maybe it's just a late bloomer, and I should leave it alone.  What do you guys think?

That white looks like growth to me... Don't shake the jars that will mess up the dry layer of verm. Just leave them be, sometimes it can take 2 weeks to show growth

Sorry for the confusion, but I didn't mean the last pic.  The last of my six jars that I talked about earlier in the thread doesn't seem to be doing anything.  I'll take that advice, though.  Gonna leave it alone.

Ahhh i see now, but yeah don't shake up BRF jars it defeats the purpose of the dry verm layer keeping contams out of the wet BRF layer. Just be patient after two weeks if there isn't any then I'm not sure what to do but I have always thrown them out

UPDATE: DAY 9



Lots of growth today!  It's as if they're wishing me a happy Father's Day! :grin:  An interesting note here is the high temps we had today.  I have read that you risk a lot of contamination above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but the mycelium certainly seemed to appreciate the heat and high humidity.  Once I temp-gun'd the jars in the high 80's, I moved them out of direct sunlight.  They're back to normal now, which is mid-to-high 70's.

Still, it seems they love that heat!  Some of the spots I haven't been posting pics of in the thread have literally doubled in size.  And they even have those veins now!  They're like little fungal hands reaching out for life.

As for the dud jar, still no (apparent) mycelium.  There is, however, the tiny beginnings of this very wispy, white shit growing in the dry vermiculite.  I removed it from the others, and quarantined it in a different room.  It's still at normal temps and in direct sunlight.  It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.

Happy Father's Day to all the mushroom daddies! :mushroom2:

UPDATE: DAY 11

Some of the mycelium have almost connected all the way around the jar!  Man, I need to really research cloning the fruit now!  Gotta be ready for that, and seems like it will (hopefully) be within 2-3 weeks at this point.  I'll probably start a thread to get members' advice.  Seems like agar is the obvious choice, but we'll see what people think! :grin:

You're right. If you wanna clone, putting a piece of tissue to agar is gonna be the most reliable. That way you can clean it with transfers before making an lc, li or wedge innoc with it. Take prints to, always good to have a few.

Jars lookin good, got your fc about ready to go?
