PEU grow log with pics! (Bod's easy AF teks) * 1
    #26197008 - 09/19/19 10:11 AM (1 year, 5 months ago)

Initial MS syringe to agar on 25 July.

July 31st. Showing signs of growth on plates!


EDIT:
I should mention I did a few agar to agar transfers during this period.

August 15th. Prepping grain jars (I use plastic lids with SFDs)!


August 15th. Agar to grain transfers completed (in an SAB).


August 25th. Showing good signs of growth (few days after a shake).


August 31st. Mycelium finally taking off.


September 4th. Jars between 70-90% colonization.


September 9th. 7 quarts to 650g of coir with a pseudo casing layer of coir on top. Unmodified tub tek 54q tub. Small T5 grow light mounted under work table.


September 12th. Spawn run looking good!


September 15th. Substrate pretty well colonized. Some dry spots in the corners got some misting attention.


September 19th. Do I have knots here? Is that little bit of yellowing any concern at the bottom middle? No off smells at all.


September 24th. Found some pins! On the sides.  :uhoh: Looking at the bright side it's only 1-2 on each side, and at least this is producing fruit! I'll mist more on the top to encourage topside pinning as I'm seeing lots of hyphal knots already.




September 25th. Topside pins forming!!!


September 27th. Friday! Got one really nice pin group and some other scattered pins. Looking good!


September 30th. Monday morning update! I’m counting ~40 topside pins/mushies. I cut a grouping of side pins off and then put them in the dehydrator last night and took a .2 microdose an hour and a half ago. Probably should have gone with .1 as these are strong and I’m feeling it a little. 😬 Here’s a topdown pic!

very cool man! :rockon:
think I'll just :camping: here for updates

Does PEU require a true casing like the other PE varieties?

I've seen mixed advice across here, but Bod says he does a pseudo casing for PE strains, so that's what I did.

Cool. What is your fruit chamber temp?
How often are you misting?
Yup casing is perfect.

That's my PE right now.
Looks like we're at the same stage.
My fruiting chamber is at 75°F
RH is 90-95%
I'm at 14 days fruiting and no pins yet.
Patients is a must :laugh:
I cased with jiffy, Verm, gypsum and lime.
pH was 8.5
Hoping for a sick flush :smile:

Temp is ~70 degrees, I dropped it from 75 just because I didn't feel like it needed the heat anymore (I was running an oil filled electric radiator across the room).

Not sure on the humidity INSIDE the tub, but the room sits at around 40% RH, I'm guessing the tub is well in the 90s.

:goodluck:

Mine was at 70 for the first 2 weeks. I went up to 75 to see if it will induce pins.
I have 2 PE a APE and AA+
All fruiting and no pins yet. So I expect pins tomorrow since turning up the heat. My personal belief anyways. Time will tell haha. I keep telling my gf 2 more days lmao.

LOL, I'm in the same boat there, except I think I've said, "Next week" about 5 times now.

Nice :thumbup: is this your first grow?

Most PE varieties are pretty slow growing usually, the only exception I can think of is PE6, mabye TW to. Patience is most definitely a virtue in mycology :snowman:

PE6 is definitely an exception.  Mine grow out at the same rate as other non-PE cubes.

YEP!

Technically second, but first go was an epic failure. Tried to use prefilled grain bags and ms syringe and only one had growth and then eventually just died before even getting to 30%. Will never go MS to grain again. Agar all the way.

Kind of an interesting update, I’m definitely seeing some knots, and at least one sign of primordia, but I thought this was cool. I’m not sure if it’s just what this strain does or if the misting slightly bruised the mycelium but there’s some light bluing on these knots (they’re orb shaped, pic is just hard to get the angle right).

Thanks for sharing your grow, agar and bodh's unmodified monotub is how I'm kicking things off for first grow (better half of this joint venture is going PFtek route). this calms my concerns that agar and monotub were too much for a 1st timer. 

Well done, sir, Salute!  :rockon:

Thanks, patience is key! Also, looking back I wouldn't recommend PEU (or any other PE strain) for your first grow unless you enjoy torturing yourself with self doubt.

Also with the unmodified tub I feel like your miles may vary. I have noticed that even though I got the exact same brand and size Bod recommends, I feel like the lid doesn't sit right upside down, and I suspect it's because the tub is a little warped on the sides. So, I think that's causing the top to dry out a little more than it would otherwise.  :shrug:

How long did you dry your grains? They looked wet in the jars...

I think it was like 2 hours split amongst two colanders. Could have definitely benefited from an over night stay in the fridge, just didn’t have the space.

Yeah you're going to want to get them bone dry next time. Lay them out on a screen with a fan until they're bone dry. Can take as long as 24 hours.
