Flipper is a genius.

My goldfishes first grow, for all you to see  :cool:
April 13, 2004.

1:00PM - Before anything, flipper ensured sterility in his nearby area by laying down newspapers, closing windows, showering,
and thoroughly washing 1/2 pint jars, mixing bowls, measuring cups, and stirring spoons.

2:00PM - Substrate mixed: Vermiculite and Brown Rice Flour.
Quantity:560ml Vermiculite, 160ml Brown Rice Flour.
Water added until it began to seap out of the substrate.

2:15-3:00PM - 4 1/2 pint substrate jars pressure cooked @ 15 psi for 45 minutes.

3:00PM - Pressure slowly expelled, jars removed, left to cool down.

8:05PM - Jars have been cooling for 5 hours, 5 minutes.

8:30PM - Jars cooled for 5 hours, 30 minutes.

9:20PM - Substrate innoculated with 1ml per Jar; 1/4cc at each innoculation site. Tape placed over innoculation holes.


April 14th 2004,

12:15PM - All 4 Jars are being incubated at precisely 86F -- No sign of mycelial growth.

12:00AM - No Sign of Growth.

April 15th 2004,

1:30PM - No sign of mycelial growth. (Some opaque substance resembling a clear stringy slime noted in all 4 Jars.)

*Update*





If the link doesn't work, I'm uploading these anyways, I can only upload 3 for today. More to come  :grin:

pics are here,
mind you I doubt anyone will care.

Saturday, April 17th, 1:03AM - First signs of mycelial growth witnessed. A somewhat fuzzy white substate has taken hold in all the jars. yay Flipper !

Don't get me wrong, Flipper is more or less interested in the biological part of it rather than eating the actual product. Mushrooms are very fascinating, which to a certain extent explains flippers meticulous observations. Flipper enjoy documenting their growth, manipulating control groups and optimizing growth conditions. I have recorded some quite rapid growth rates, considering Flipper started his first grow ever 3 days ago; and by that picture I would say perhaps 15% done already. He must be doing something right.  :smile:

April 20, 2004.

Jars flipped lastnight, tape was removed. Some Vermiculite fell out of some of the holes, they were sitting on a blanket, so the residue left from the tape made the tinfoil stick a little bit. Hopefully the dry vermiculite layer has done its job and Flipper hasn't just introduced some nice contaminants to his jars. The Flipping did however almost finish my first Jar, the others are still around 50%.

April 20th - Started 5 more Jars. Innoculated at 2PM
- Comments on flippers setup/anything very welcomed :smile:


cheers.
