Help!!!! did my friend just kill my grow kit?
    #25299644 - 06/29/18 09:18 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

So we are using rye substrate in mushbags and we are now at the stage where we put the prelite, substrate and vermiculite in the box to colonise further into the grow kit cake.

But then stupidly filled the boxes with water even though the mycelium hadn’t finished colonising - I’ve drained them off almost instantly and I’m hoping that this hasn’t caused them to contaminate etc...

What do you all think?

From what you just described, you should probly find another hobby.
Perhaps there is a language barrier that I'm not able to penetrate.  I consider myself pretty intelligent and it has taken me years to be able to grow anything with some sort of consistency.

Are you using a grow bag or are you making cakes?  Sounds like your trying to combine the two teks.

Please don't listen to this guy. Your in a bit of a panic but I'd let your cake ride for now until you see contams.

Guys like him are the reason I did this solo not knowing what to do for first year. There are many people that are productive and want to help here. This is a great place to learn.

I think you are being a bit harsh. With how long it took you to get good results I am sure many could say it he same about you.

OP: Dunno if you ruined it or not, hard to tell from your description. If you did, keep trying. There is lots of advice on here as to how to grow successfully. I personally love agar -> oats -> shoeboxes, but to each his own.

The first guy's onto something. If you had a bag, and spawned it out; Why's there perlite & water? You're mixing teks or your kit directions are hot garbage. Read up on the stickied tek lists.

Ok so its been almost a week and now one kit hasn't developed any more mycelium but also isn't showing any sign of contamination (whats going on there?).

Where the other kit has been growing rapidly since but the mycelium looks more fluffy and wispy than before - and my research is indicating its not contamination but Id just like to check to be sure!



what do y'all think?

kit1 isn't clear enough to see whats goin on. Since it's a tray in a bag, make sure the bag isn't sealed, they need air flow.

kit2 looks like a bunch of perlite, can't tell how colonized it is. IDK what to expect because you don't use perlite to bulk out. Myc doesn't like to grow on it.

So I’m in London and we are having quite a hot summer and I have a very warm room  do you have any tricks to get this kit fruiting - so far the mycelium just appears to be growing - I’ve now hydrated the kit and put it in the filter bag and out in the light to start fruiting but it’s been more than a week!

You mixed your spawn with perlite, I don't know if there's anything you can do to salvage it.

Read the teks, start again without a kit.

The kit is fine one got contaminated because I was making them with an idiot who filled the boxes with water before it was time - but one of the kits survived his error.,,

I followed instructions from Azarius layering perlite the colonised rye berry and a top layer of vermiculite which I believe how most ordered grow kits come...

The kit (mycelium) is still colonising and is not contaminated but it’s now in its filter bag exposed to light for nearly two weeks and it hasn’t started fruiting yet...I’m waiting for the temperature (weather) to drop again back to England’s normal temperatures...

Any useful information?

I guess I can add that kits and their directions suck. You should see something by 2 weeks.

No new info to go on.

That's great you're getting something man. :thumbup:

Maybe check out this spore printing tek. Getting a few prints out of this will set you up for a few grows without needing to buy spores.

Well hey, you got something out of it :thumbup:

Trust people when they say that the kits aren't very good and are actually counter intuitive to this hobby. Read a few teks and do some legwork to find your materials and you will be astonished at how easy this can be, especially with some of the updated teks from the last few years. :sun:
