second season grow
    #25883959 - 03/19/19 06:22 PM (3 months, 27 days ago)

hey all,

last year I ended up going through a few iterations of growing and ended up having the most success grinding up brf cakes and mixing in bulk with cvg.

this year I'm going to do some agar work (have mini rounds and the breathable tape on hand, awaiting the agar to arrive). first go I'm just going to practice some movements in SAB and see if I'm inducing contamination.

last year I was using an electric PC that my roommate had, this year I'm investing in a presto 23q so I can do grain.

agar --> grain

What's my end goal for when I go grain to bulk?

Should I have a monoculture for this? What if it's weak? What if it ends up being non-fruiting?

I have on hand a few prints from my first grow (some ecuador that I thought were pretty good, and some huautla/oaxaca that I thought were fairly lackluster by comparison). I have an MS of puerto rican as well.

Unsure if the spore prints are clean as they are from the first time I was trying to create them, so I might buy another MS or print. Anyone recommend a decent strain?

Almost any cube except penis envy. B+ or golden teacher seems to be popular for first timers. If you have prints grow from MS on agar. Learn how to do that then concentrate on clone then monoculture.

I love Golden teachers.  The unicorn next door recently pulled a single 71 gram fruit. They are noob friendly. 👍 I think their ms syrynge had a 101 on it...

alright, update time

I tried making agar plates in my electric PC I had used last year. there was a lot of condensation. I tried inocing anyway, and obviously that led to bacterial growth pretty quickly.

to rectify this I acquired a real PC

I inoculated 4 of the larger jars with GT and AA+. I'll use the quicker of each for the remaining G2G. had around 2200-2300g dry before boiling and drying again. this was split between two sets of 6 32qt jars, with 2 of each set being a bit fuller for g2g source.

I have to clean my current agar plates (glad mini rounds) and I have another set of 8 I want to make. I also have another 6 jars to PC, can I put all of these in at once (beyond space reasons)? for the last PC cycle I followed one of BOD's teks, leave weight off, wait for steam, vent for 10 minutes, then added the weight with the 3 quarters, got to 15 psig and adjusted heat accordingly, cook 2 hours.

for the next agar cycle I will inoc 1 each of GT, AA, PR and go from there.

Okay, update time. I have 4 jars inoc'd with growth, 2 with AA+ and one GT. Will use for G2G.

Bit early, how do these look? I've given them all a quick sniff test and I can't really smell anything but boiled grain.

AA1



AA2



GT1



GT2



I've read that at some point these should be shaken?

WUT?

If you were asking if these were ok by us looking at them, how did you go about giving them a sniff test?

By the way they do look F'd

alright

i had what I considered 5 good mini rounds via MS syringe that were worth trying transfers. made ~12 transfers, found some clear winners in terms of growth speed/rhizomorphic density





these were transferred 6/1, they are GT

i also decided to roll the dice and try an agar 2 grain transfer.

first pic is 6/3, second is today 6/5
