My First Grow (harvest pics)
    #2677173 - 05/14/04 10:40 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Well over a month ago I embarked on growing my first batch of mushrooms and it has turned out to be quite a rewarding experience. After a few days of reading up on what I needed what to expect etc etc from here and a couple of other sites I pooled the materials and got my hands dirty and this is what followed.

*note* i cant find the weights atm but they were all over 100g and the black thing in the pics is a Game Boy SP which was on hand to give you a sense of scale

22nd April

First flush I got slightly impatient and picked these before the caps had fully opened but they were very potent.



27th April

Second flush less mushrooms but these were larger on average than the first and there was more weight to them.



6th May

I returned home after working away for the weekend to find these monsters in the tank releasing spores everywhere which is why they are so dark, these are the biggest Shrooms the cake has produced by far I have some individual weights around here somewhere.



13th May

After washing the spores off the casing layer and dunking for a couple of hours I left the cake and it went on to produce these. they are as thin as the second batch and the same colour but the same length as the 3rd weight is lowest the cake has produced but i think its due to the mycelium starting to starve



So thats where it stands my first ever cake produced 4 flushes so far and its back in the tank to see if theres anything else left in it got near 500g so far so alls well thanks for all the info shroomery!

Yep all of thats from one cake which is in a thin plastic tub see pic. The casing layer was vermiculite and some slightly ground wheat about a cm thick, substrate was all whole grain wheat too.

Ive got loads of grow pics which I'll be getting off my phone soon too in the region of 60 images so ill get them up as soon as i can

but in the mean time have a pic of the 3rd flush as it was after I removed it from the tank!

Yea i couldnt get the tank conditions *quite* right to stem the growth of the mycelium so after every flush it started covering the casing layer pretty quick and resulted in my white coat wearing mushies!

Yea couldnt agree more I read loads of material from every source I could find before choosing strain etc and once you have it all straight in your head you wont be caught off guard, and even if something happens youre unsure of youll know exatly where to look or use these here forums.

The only big thing I learnt was once the pinning of the first flush has started take a back seat and aside from the occasional daily  airing to leave it alone more or or less and itll take it course. I think early on the cake was at risk of me giving it to much attention, like watering airing etc mainly due to impatience but I can assure you no matter how many times you fan spray or alter temperature theyre not gonna grow till theyre good and ready :tongue:
