First Grow, let me know what ya think bout my Plans.
    #25874608 - 03/14/19 09:43 PM (2 months, 7 days ago)

First of all hello and thanks to the whole forum here, have been soaking up information like a sponge all over the internet and especially here on shroomery the past weeks (no joke, think i have been reading on here 12 hours yesterday alone #thanksmodafinil), and my 1st grow plans are actually starting to take shape at the moment.

Quickly some background to myself. I´m a Student from Germany in his 20´s having had my first shroom experience some weeks ago and pretty much straight the next day decided i was going to start growing my own ones. Im much into personal development and spirituality therefore i saved up the psychedelic experience for quiet some years and handled it as quiet an sacrament. Now I want to work with it more frequently to gain insights and as aid in development. Also some micro dosing will take place, everything stacked with lions mane which I´ll also be growing in larger scale. Since I´m also quiet a fan of nootropics and nutrition optimization, probably some other medicinals will follow those initial projects.

Guess for a start that should be enough with the quick info and back to my plans.

My PC is already on it´s way, settled for a 18l (bout 19 quarts?) model, first got a 9l one but once it arrived I immediately realized it would be too small so straight send back.
Since I want to grow lions mane and later other medicinals i plan to go for Bag tek (actually thought I was an creative Mind and the first one coming up with it LOL! but after some days of digging actually found pretty much exactly what i was imagining with Bosley´s Bags https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/24620024/fpart/1/vc/1)
Bags too pretty much already on their way too.
Since i was a bit impatient and wanted to see straight results i went for grow kits as source of my future genetics. One Moby Dick and one McKennaii (ur free to roast me but the moment i purchased I thought to myself 1. I love Terence 2. the claim for it to be a quiet potent variety still somehow triggered me and 3. I was able to find every other variety they offered as syringes which unlike grow kits are easily shippable to Ger, but not this one [nor the Moby])

Nevertheless, those two kits were set out to start growing 2 days ago, wish me luck haha.

Once or if they should give me some fruit I plan to clone the best and potent looking ones of each on Agar.
Got myself some glaspetris, got 40 pcs used quiet cheaply. I like the re-usability aspect and the fact that they can be PCed with the agar in them, seems way more contiproof to me than to handle around with the agar in the SAB.
Anyways, then next step will be 3x selectioning of rhizomorphic mycelium strands before using it to create the honey LC I´ll later use to inoculate the bags with.
Before that of course check the LC on an rye jar.
Guess the safest way was to only once do the Agar to LC jar and than use that one jar to create more LC jar right? Not to simply have masses of Agardishes and uses all of them to create an own LC.
Well thats quiet some weeks off in the future anyways.
As Sub for the Bags ill probably go the same as Bosley in his Tek with the coir/rye simply because its easy to handle and acquire, but i also already see myself experimenting around with different layerings. Also i think it would be interesting to see how they later on behave differently if they are layed out flat to incubate and later Fruit since i think that massive chunk of Sub would be way more effective spread out a bit wouldn't it? Also thought about just crumbling out the spawned coir/rye mix in a small mono and not leaving it in the Bag, any thoughts on that? Or would that just be unnecessary mess and tubs to clean up later on:/?

Well definitely cant wait to get there!
let me know what you guys think

Before you start...Do you have a Pressure Cooker and a Dehydrator? I highly recommend getting both!

So  some followup pics,
Agar prepared and ready in the refrigerator, SAB Ready and prepared.
But most importantly and what quiet relives me, both kits showing first primordia and tiny pins. Even though it might be better visible on the Moby Dick one, the McKennaii looks way healthier in general, not quiet visible yet, but if all the tiny primordia in the McKennaii should truly turn out to become shrooms, then i should be able to get quiet a flush with that one. Think the Moby has been a bit too dry to begin with, but nevermind, what matters is that there will be something to clone in the End :smile:

The thing about agar is you really want to keep all your items in a sterile environment at all times. Exposing them to unsterile conditions compromises the entire process. I wouldn't suggest doing a no pour with sterile dishes.

Well, thought if I´d pick up the dishes carefully and with constantly applying pressure to the top of the cover, nothing should be able to get in to the agar surface. Think the methode was proposed on some german growing forum.

Had to check the Agar yesterday anyways since i wasn´t home over the weekend and came home to fully ripe and ready to harvest McKennaiis. Didn´t expect them to be finished that quickly therefore some already burst open and spread some spores over the kit. Harvested immediately and used the biggest one to clone. Cloned it onto 3 agar plates. Checked 4 of them over flashlight to look for contams, all but one, which seemed to have tiny tiny irritations and which I threw away for that reason seemed pretty fine. So guess I´ll see whether the Methode was worth it or not.

Anyways, got bout 160 wet grams of the 1st flush, 144 visible on the Pics+ 15.7 of the one used for cloning and which was consumed afterwards to check the quality :P
