First Bulk Grow and A Few Questions
    #25395931 - 08/18/18 11:19 AM (2 years, 8 months ago)

Hey guys, I grew a couple of years ago and haven't tripped (on shrooms) since. Not because I didn't want to, they're just not widely available here. I'm now attempting my first Bulk Grow. I have a few pictures and was hoping more experienced growers could tell me if it looks okay. I'm seeing some pin-like structures forming, but they look different from the pins I saw last time. It was a while ago though so it might be normal and I'm just being paranoid. Check them out, and thanks in advance.

We don't like off-site links. Upload them here, see 'Pics' under your account name in the top left of your screen, then 'Upload', you will get a response once your pics are hosted here.

I upload from mobile all the time. Just a suggestion, if you want a good response, not many people are going to click those, doesn't matter if you say 'it's fine'.

Trying to help, good luck.

Okay well I've attached images from my camera app and photos and it says file not supported so idk. To fix that I'd probably have to download a file converter. I'm guessing the site supports img and not jpg.

:rolleyes:

I'm sry but I'm not even sure what I'm looking at.
Maybe an overhead photo of the entire substrate so it's easier to see what's going on?

I took an overhead but it's just a field of white, you can't see the shapes unless it's from an angle like this.

It's hard to tell but is this a pin?

See in the bottom left where it's focused? Those white areas that rise up in a pin-like shape but don't resemble pins in color? Are these just early pins? Over humidified possible?

In general it looks like you overmisted. Myc looks really beaten down. When did you spawn?

I'm sorry but that's one of the worst substrate surfaces I have seen, I have had this happen to me early on as well.

I threw a then layer of coir onto my substrate to give myc a chance to recreate better surface conditions.

But on the other hand your tub might also be contaminated (what are those black spots?)

What and how much did you spawn to what?

Full colonization in 4 days? :uhoh: that sounds bad

How does it smell? Like mushrooms?

Black spots are just horse manure that hasn't been enveloped yet. I tried to break it down as much as I could, but horse poop is just lumpy due to all the grass and stuff in it. I didn't think it being pretty would really matter. How will that affect the yield? Mushrooms grow from cylindrical cakes,so I didn't think lumpy surfaces would be a problem

And I said almost, it isn't even 100% now, 6 days after

Guess I'll hold back on misting and just fan until it looks healthier.

What I mean was theat your substrate surface looks like it ont be able to support fruit formation, surface conditions look terrible :/

I promise I'm not trying to be mean or to talk crap about your substrate. After you've seen a few healthy substrates you will know what bad surface conditions are.

You might still get a ton of sidepins and bottom pins and that should tell you a lot about  surface conditions of your substrate.

I don't know what else to recommend but a thin layer of coir or something for the myc to grab onto s9 it can regenerate fresh tissue more suitable for pin formation. Gl

Fanning is outdated no need for that :thumbup:
