Hey guys! That’s a beautiful fucking flush darqnyght.

I haven’t posted much cuz all has been decent nothing spectacular. Totaled 187g wet off the 7 cakes that have fruited and still going.

Now for anyone who remembers my 5 purple mystic cakes that are lagging behind. I have a small update and want some input from those more experienced.



This is what’s going on. I finally see some pins but it looks like they’re side pins that are coming directly off the spots where the myc became rhyzomorphic and webbed onto the foil. Nothing off the cake itself. I don’t really think these will develop into big fruits they look pretty well developed already. I can’t help but feel like I’m doing something wrong here

Woke up to lots of new pins on the neglect cake today

My spraying hand was itching like hell the past few days, maternal instincts I guess.
But I'm glad I stayed out of it and let the cake do it's own thing.
You've had good success so far with high FAE and lots of misting Myco, but what if you tried out some of that 'neglect'? :dancer:
You don't need to go full neglect but maybe skip a misting session or two next week and see what happens?  :awegroove:

I think you’re right bro. I noticed the pins right after a misting and they were blue from it. Also I think next time they’ll need their own hc cuz their needs seem to be a little different than the others. From what I know it’s original to Florida so must like super high humidity. I think that’s proven by the fact that it pinned from the rhizo myc that had formed at the very beginning when the lid was completely closed and they got fuzzy.

Thanks for the encouragement lol. Every time I’m getting frustrated you remind me about your APE tub and the neglect cake. I’ve been trying to be such a good mom but I think these guys are just ready to go off to college by themselves.

Don't mean to discourage you but the APE cakes (Aspergillus Penicillin Envy) are doing great so far :lol:
I'm spawning them to an unmodified trashcan :bongload:

I guess I made liquid inoculates from dirty APE cultures I'm figuring since most of the cakes are sporulating green at the same time. :shrug:
I'll start to work with mostly clone cultures soon anyway, I don't have time to worry about suspect MS cultures.
Most of my latest APE MS grows have been giving me the green and turquoise migraine. Going clones.



At least the neglect-cakes are somewhat encouraging :typing:
These neglected HC's look and feel really dry. Walls have dried up and after I touched the coir surface my fingers were still dry.
Yet somehow this cake is exploding with pins in these conditions, over 30 pins counted today, and more incoming :yesnod:



Can't wait til I have clone cakes in the chambers so I can finally dial in the
optimal conditions for both small and large HC's :takingnotes:

I think you misread that part Mateah. I’ve never gotten anything but positivity and encouragement from you! P.S - I had to use google to see what you did there but I see what you did there
:kimjongil:

I constricted FAE and of course my other cakes are getting the fuzz but these PM’s are finally pinning off the cake. Also been neglected the past 2 days. I’m not sure about this since they were already showing some pins off the foil I can’t decide whether less FAE and neglect made more pins show up or if it was just time for them :shrug:  take a look




You think I should open it up a little and let them breathe more or let them do what they’re doing for a day or 2 and see how it goes? Now my misting finger is itching too lol

The story goes along the lines of: "if one or two pins pop up, surely more are likely to come"
Meaning if fruiting conditions result in a cake throwing out two or three pins then it means that proper
fruiting conditions are already met for coming pins as well. :thumbup:
Anyway you're rocking the Pf cakes I'm sure you'll do it good however you do it :thumbup:

The experiment with allowing myc to leap off of the cake onto the coir turned out  to be a failure.
I didn't expect myc to colonize the coir this much, the colonized coir parts below
every cake are roughly the same volume as the cake above and for a 1/2 pint cake that's unnecessary amounts of energy spent for basically nothing.
This is how it looked from the top when I removed the cakes, looked to be a thin layer on top only.


But when I tried removing it I noticed it was a fairly large clump of a pretty
tightly knitted colony extending 5-10cm below the surface.


Some of these coir myc clumps even produced own tiny fruits.
But I have already cut new foil boats for the cakes to stand on I'm not letting
them play with the coir anymore, I always figured it was a bad idea but sometimes
you still need to see it for yourself just because the inner noob is strong in this one :bongload:

Now use manure instead of coir.

just harvested my first cake from the HC yesterday evening



took the 11g in the first picture then a few hours later grabbed the rest in the second pic and dunked the cake, total was just a hair shy of an ounce

so obviously I still have a fair bit to learn lol

Think they might've got bigger if I had've waited a tad longer, but the cake was shrunk so bad it really looked a little worse for wear, so we hope she does well for another flush

so of course I took the ounce wet in tea immediately (ahem, for science right?)

spent the next several hours having a real good time... it has been too long and it felt like I was coming home

thanks for the nice simple method mateah and fellas, seems like if I can make this work almost anyone can :mushroom2:

One time i fruited cakes directly on wet perlite. And the pins always grew into and out of the perlite. They were hooked on that moist rock. I learned quick that its better to keep them seperate from each other.

Does the coir need to be cooked at all, like when spawning to bulk, or just overly saturated?

I’ve already dunked the cakes overnight, is rolling in verm recommended or just preference?

Sorry if these questions have already been answered in the pages of comments..

Yes, dunk the newly birthed cakes for 24h, roll them in verm (only this one time after birth) and place inside chamber.
When first flush has been harvested redunk the cakes for ~12h and then straight back inside the chamber.

Edit: coir doesn't need to be cooked at all for this Tek, just hydrate it with boiling water and let it cool.

That’s exactly the process I’ve started this morning, thanks!

Edit:
I’m also experimenting with how the cakes will be separated from the coir. I have extra lids laying around, so I’m going to use both the lid/ring with tin foil to make a “bowl” like platform. Conversely, I’ll use just the lids to create a more “plate” like platform. My hypothesis is that the bowl like platform will create more of a microclimate at the bottom of the cakes, resulting in majority of pins forming there, also can be used for bottom water, where the lids alone cannot be used in this way.

Alrighty so here are the happenings in my HC.

This guy I think flushed 3 times already. Keeping it in there just in case he’s got one more to give but I think he’s dead.



Ive got a few that look like they might be throwing their last fruits before they are done too. Here are some examples of that. The cake in the second pic consitantly grew a big shroom that size in that same spot surrounded by a cluster of smaller but decent fruits. Now he’s lonely so I’m thinking it’s the end of the road.




There’s this guy who I dunked and forgot about.. oops! I think it was in water for like 3 days who knows. Surprisingly when I took it out of the water I realized there was some pins that looked new. Pinning underwater? Does that happen??
Anyway, the base of some pins look like the the myc had gotten jelly-like. Or is that contaminated? Any input helps I just threw it in there to see if that dries up and hardens into white myc and fruits.



Last but not least. What I’ve been waiting for and I couldn’t have timed it better if I wanted too. They’re coming in while the others are dying out. Purple Mystic cakes are coming along, some looking farther along in the process, some just showing lil baby pins. Can’t wait for these! I hope they are worth the wait otherwise I’ll stick to other varieties going forward.





That’s it for now. I’ll post pics when the PM cakes look more mature. Happy shroomin everyone.

:ohwow:

I wanna grow cakes like that too :begger:

So now you're responsible to enlighten the rest of us about fruiting conditions
and maintenance of HC so we can try it out :takingnotes:

I'm always doing good but only when people asks me :lol: hope you're doing good too :hatsoff:

Thanks man. Just followed you tek mate!
Your the one that inspired me to do cakes again just for fun and to try out the HC. As Im trying to get my best friend into cultivating also I thought the HC is almost to good to be true. So simple!

Im great my friend! Currently taking my first prints from those cakes and will finally be able to give something back to this community.

After seeing letters in our mailbox over and over again the last 2 months even my girlfriend told me.
-you better send something back to all this people!

So thats what Im doing :bow2:
