Greetings and Salutations - MushPeople!

I know a few of you were concerned about my not 100% colonized grains - but here we are -
March 9, 2020
started pinning 2 days ago.

Fanning 2 xday
Misting sides if it looks dry and no moisture building on sides.
In fact, looks a bit dry.







Pic from 2/17/2020



Enjoy the pin porn!

Sweet!


I would put a top layer of coir on the new tub, it’s a huge huge help with surface conditions. The first pics look exactly like my first grows, way matted from getting too wet then too dry but still pinned pretty well. One huge thing to learn for me was they need much less water than I thought. If the coir is prepped right you won’t need to mist hardly at all, maybe a couple times very lightly before the first flush. And I’ve got 16% humidity in my room so shit dries fast.

Thanks AKA -

that last pic is the same tub back in feb!

fruits are much bigger today - sides of tub still wet with moisture.
I swear I can watch these things grow all day! 
I live in a high desert and have a forced air heating system. 
Ambient temps run 68-69F and my room HG reads - 34% (not sure how accurate that is).

Thanks for the tips!
I will try Mazatapec next.

lol I have a feeling we’re in the same desert.

Yeah it’s so fun when they start growing fast. Sometimes I have to check pictures from the day before to make sure they actually grew that much overnight and I’m not crazy.

Maz is cool usually fast and pins really easy, it was my very first grow and I messed it up a lot and still got a decent flush.

what would the difference be?  Healthy v.  what I got going on here.
They've doubled in size and I've got more baby fruits and pins coming up!!!

from today:






While Im updating:

Golden teacher spore syringe to rye grain bag
65-70% Colonization
to monotub and 1/2 inch coco coir/verm/manure casing
left to colonize for 1 week - then moved to 12/12 light and 2xday fanning
mist when it looks dry (not that often - maybe every 2-3 days)

thanks for all the input
Mush appreciated - and at the moment the biggest thing I've learned............... be patient young mushie Padawan............. be patient.

Next time try going right to fruiting. The top layer helps way more when it doesn’t get super colonized like that.

The pins look healthy to me, looks like a couple are gonna be pretty big.

Are you saying you spawned the bag of grain to the tub when it was 70% colonized?

Also, and this should be great news for you, fanning is unnecessary lol. I came into growing right as that was getting phased out. Did it like halfway through my first grow it sucked bad I was happy to stop.

Yup - I got lucky - that was my impatience kicking in...........Ill let the next bag colonize 100% first. 

No fanning?  for real?  I'll try that.  Yeah - checked on them this am and they are getting BIG!!!

Thanks for the intel - mush appreciated!

First Flush Yield............. 35 grams Dried!!! [Re: AreolaMay]
    #26540737 - 03/17/20 02:50 PM (11 months, 8 days ago)

I'm rather chuffed!!!
Not bad for my first grow and first flush!

35g of dried mushrooms - cracker dry and stored with a desiccant pack in the fridge.

My whole reason for doing this is:

2020 the year of experimentation
self-medicate to deal with PTSD and Severe clinical depression

and finally ..............  I love watching things grow



MUSH LOVE AND HEALTHY TIDINGS - IN THESE CRAZY COVID TIMES.

Hey OP, how did you dry those?

It’s prolly just me, but they don’t look 100% dry in those pics.

I would avoid storing dry mushrooms in the fridge, one reason is it doesn't make sense, as long as they are below 300°f they will be fine, and two there is a lot of moisture in the fridge your dry mushrooms number one enemy. Oh yea and preferably out of direct sunlight. Good flush nonetheless.

Oh, they’re in baggies AND in the fridge?

Wow, guess I have a good eye. Deff not 100% dry, even if they were before OP stored them.

Thick-looking gills and some fuzz inside the broken stems.

Guess not.
But how can they stay cracker dry in the fridge unless the seal is air-tight? Ziplock bags aren’t airtight🤷🏻‍♂️
Jars are the only reliable storage. I even bought oxygen absorbing packets, hoping I can use my vac seal bags with them...still got bendy stems less than 2 weeks later.
