... Did I just... Did I just see that??
    #2541376 - 04/08/04 11:55 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

After a few years of unfulfilled aspirations, I finally found myself in a situation amiable to mushroom growing. So, being my first-ever grow, you can probably understand the level of excitement surrounding those little jars. The jars, however, stalled (14 days in / >95% colinization). After doing a bit of reading, I picked one of those half-pint suckers and smacked it upside down against my desk, and placed him back in his happy home -- a tub-in-tub incubator.

Less than an hour later, my anticipation got the better of me, and so I once again picked up that one particular jar. To my utter amazement, the quarter-sized, uncolonized spot on the bottom of the jar had almost entirely closed in on itself, joyous little web of mycellium swimming about in a sea of brown rice flour and vermiculite.

"Holy crap!" I thought to myself, "this stuff moves so fast, why... Why I bet I could *SEE* it move!"

So, I picked up a 50mm camera lens and flipped it over to use as a loupe. Since the room is a bit dark, I turned on a blinding halogen lamp and took a peak. In the process of doing so, I inadvertantly managed to focus the light from the lamp onto a 1/2 cm square of the jar. As I looked through the makeshift loupe ... *Pop* *pop* *pop*

Little reddish brown heads on little teeny tiny white stalks popped up and crawled across the surface of that half-centimeter. Granted, I'm aware that I shouldn't be initiating pinning quite yet, and I'm not sure if these little buggers are pins or primordia or what. Like I said, it's my first grow. But hot damn, that was really fucking cool to see!

... Just thought I'd let you share in my joy!

Did you eat mushrooms prior to investigating jars?

Also what the hell is a Loupe?

1. No. I ate vegetable lasagna! It was delicious!
2. A loupe is a device typically used to view small objects like diamonds or jewels or photographic negatives. Higher magnification than a magnifying glass, less cumbersome than a microscope.

It's probably like seeing the first steps of Your kid... :mushroom2: :smile: :mushroom2:

I have heard stories of mushrooms *popping* thru the layer of leaves and  other organic material, leaving an impression that they grow in a second :smile: I don't know how to precisely explain it - it's when the mushroom has grown underneath, as it grows, the pressure grows too and when the layer covering it cant take it anymore the mushroom *pops* through it, jumping into daylight. But this probably is one of those urban myths again... Never seen that happen myself.
