LAGM2021- Official Let's All Grow Mushrooms 2021 * 4
    #27103145 - 12/22/20 11:28 PM (1 month, 2 days ago)

----In the honor and absence of CBK, I am starting an official thread to serve as both the sign up and the main thread. Will try to keep format identical to last years.-----


Start Date: Friday January 1st 2021


After a long and turmoilous year I think we all could use a good common cause to gather around and recharge as well as learn and grow together in more ways than one.

"Okay let's get this going again!! We had so much fun last time. This really brought the community together back in 2017(and 2020) and I cant think of a better time to get a community grow happening than 202(1)!"

If you're new to agar dont be shy! Sign up! Grab your supplies! Plenty of time before the new year!"

Okay...
A few rules!
-All species and varieties welcome!
-We will be starting from spores!!
-ALL SPORES HAVE TO GO ON AGAR FIRST!
-We start January 1st spores to agar
-Add as much info as you can. This is a great learning tool for us and other users to follow along. "Mistakes" and all!
-Post your updates in the thread as well as updating your OP to keep the conversation going
- Have fun! Most importantly :heart:


To Sign up
Comment in this thread to reserve your spot.
This comment will be your grow log. Keep updating it as we go along. I will link to your spot in the OP below
Let me know the species and variety you plan on growing for the log!
Sign up closes on Jan 1st 2021
I'll have a mod move this thread to mush cult on the 1st

Species:

Variant:

:cubie:PFC
:cubie:Z
:cubie:AA+
:cubie:PR
:cubie:CR


Just poured my plates. I'm a bit rusty and shaky in my sterile tek but it'll come back to me soon enough. Couldn't find my media bottles so used a rando glass bottle with a pp5 lid but it was a bit bigger than I'm used to at almost 1L; took longer to remelt and seemed harder to find that sweet spot of liquid yet palatable to the fingertips. As a result some of the plate are gonna be a bit lumpy and overfilled. Normally I would allow plates to cool for 24 hours in SAB before wrapping but I may need to move the SAB between now and next year so I will likely wrap them only an hour or two over cooling. I expect to see this bite me in the ass later but it is what it is....
:hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance:

Equipment and Materials
Agar- 10g agar, 10g Potato Starch, 7g Dextrose
Plates- 100mm x 15mm
SAB- 34" x 18" x 12"
Wrap- 2" wide cheap plastic wrap


:hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance:



:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 2nd, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:


While fruitlessly looking for sterile swabs, some old prints and swabs were found. As such, a few variants have been added. A CRS print was also found but did not appear to have any usable spores on it; to the point that it could not be discerned even where the print used to be on the foil. In total 11 plates were inoculated; some by loop, some be swab, some by MSS.


The Breakdown:

- 2 plates AA+; via loop
-2 plates GT; via loop
-2 plates Z; via loop
-2 plates PFC; via MSS
-2 plates PR; via swab
-1 plate CR; via swab



Now we wait....:waitingpatiently:


:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 4th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:


Ok, quick update: A Haiku


No germination
Except some bacteria
Guess I'll wait longer



:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 6th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:



:hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance:We Have Germination! (the good kind):hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance::hamsterdance:


The Breakdown:
:cubie: 1 PR plate
:cubie: 1 GT plate


    The PR is a surpise. It is from a swab made from an MSS about a year ago. It was funky as fuck in growth and from what I've read/heard it's still pretty unstable so I happy to be able to play around with it again.

    GT is a favorite. One of my first and most worked with. This is sort of my workhorse variant and can't wait to see what it puts out this time around.


No visible myc growth on the other plates yet though I expect to see in the next 24 hours or so. Seeing growth on the PR plate gives me hope for the CR plate which comes from a swab made in the same fashion at the same time. Fully expect other GT plate to be very close behind and Z to catch up and perhaps over take in terms of speed. AA+ is showing bacterial contams so I'll let thos ride it out and clean them up later. This is also expected due to my own ignorance when the print was made. The PFC plate was noc'd using via MSS and the excess moitsure is likely to further delay germination though I do expect it to happen. Moving cakes to HC today which were noc'd via the same MSS.

        Current growth is 50%-70% the area of a dime so I will hopefully have time and motivation to make T1s tomorrow. T0 plates will be one time use but T1-T2 will be done on the same plate. T3 will be done on its own plate as it will go to grain.

      Excited to see signs I still kinda know what I'm doing! :yay:



:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 8th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:



getting pretty bummed that I lost my LME while sitting here staring at PDA plates that (in my mind based off past experience with these) would have germd by now MEA. Reached to an old friend that would know to find out where to get some malt extract around here. (just moved) Bad news is not a single place in town. Good news is he has a pound of it I can grab on Monday.
So unless I just get antsy and can't wait, I'll make up some more (better) agar on Monday and make T1s and probably some more germ plates for anything now going by then.

I've never had plate NOT germinate. Ever. From the first time I started agar. Plenty of dirty plates, but never just no growth. The AA+ has some bacteria but I knew it was a dirty print so no surprise there. While a couple of the others are a bit difficult to see due to condensation, I see no signs of contams in them yet and I can see spores. They are just holdin' out on me.



:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 9th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:


Two steps forward, one step back.
The Z plate that had germinated now appears to be mold. However, the GT and PR plates continue to look good, despite being quite light and wispy (as good as they can on this PDA). On the upside, It looks like I have germination in both PFC plates. These were noc'd via MSS so kinda surprised they were not first to germ. Still very happy to see any favorable life in these guys right now.




:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 14th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:


Made a couple T1s and started more T0s. Mostly just wanted to get everything on MEA instead of PDA. A bit of ups and downs so I'll try to detail them separately.

T1
-GT
-AA+

T0
-Z
-CR
-PFC
-AA+


The Bad: Working in less than ideal settings; lighting was terrible and myc was quite hard to see while in SAB. Took 2-3 wedges out of T0s for T1s but I am not 100% sure I actually got any myc.

The Good: MEA plate came out looking great! Like looking through amber. Poured a full sleeve but used less than half so plates ready to go for next transfers. Of the PDA plates I pour and did not use, none of them are showing any contamination. I'll not likely use them for anything unless no other option but it is a nice reassurance that my technique hasn't completely gone to shit.


:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 17th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:


Finally getting some action. Not much to report on most but GT and AA+ T1s are looking great. GT is my workhorse and this print came from like 10th generation of my work with it. AA+ I only worked with shortly before just kinda letting it go and forgetting about it so excited to see those come back.

GT


AA+


:dancingbear::dancingbear::dancingbear::dancingbear:Mini Update:dancingbear::dancingbear::dancingbear::dancingbear:

Agar

While my plates are not like crystal, I really have no need to get them more clear than they are. While the mix and procedure is fairly customized to fit my needs and preferences I feel it's a pretty easy and straightforward way to get your plates within the top 5 percentile of clearest plates.

Telephone agar-7.5g
LME-15g
tap water-450ml

  • Pour 450ml of water into glass beaker.
  • Add stir bar, sit on mag stirrer. Turn on stir bar and heat.
  • Add LME to beaker -I don't dump it all a once but also not super slow. Maybe 10-15 seconds total time. Dumping it all at once would probably be fine, this is just a habit I developed when working with Potato Starch for PDA.
  • Add agar to beaker
  • Place thermometer in holder continue stirring/heating until a minimum of 185F is reached -I usually got to 200F but haven't gotten away with pulling at 185-186 without issue.
  • Pour into media bottles and PC


To serve a bit of a dual purpose, here's a pic of my GT T1 with some kickass growth on it. Of 20 plate sleeves, usually no more than 2 will have a bit of sediment like the one shown. I'm not too worried about10% having pieces like that, it's the cloudiness I hate.





If you check back to my update on the 17th you can see how much that GT has grown in less than 24 hours and I am stoked about that. I may go ahead and start taking T2s today. AA+ is looking very similar. Z still seems to be on the struggle bus but my have germination on the new PFC T0.



:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:January 19th, 2021:mushdance::mushdance::mushdance::mushdance:


Progress at last!!
Here's the Breakdown:

T2
:cubie:AA+ - 2 wedges each from 3 T1 growths
:cubie:GT - 2 wedges each from 2 T1 growths


T1
:cubie:PR - R&R:pin mold; poke
:cubie:Z - R&R"pin mold; 2 wedges from T0
:cubie:PFC(a) - 2 wedges taken from 0102 T0
:cubie:PFC(b) - 2 wedges taken from 0114 T0 


:hamsterdance:CR is still holding out on me. Thinking my swabs are just shit; still hold out some hope though.

:hamsterdance:PFC(a) and PFC(b) germinated about the same time despite a 12 day different. I think this is due to (a) being on PDA and (b) being on MEA. Naturally, I took Ts from both. Both was noc'd with the same MSS made by me from a print that was also made by me.

:hamsterdance:Z and PR are going to be a challenge. The T1s are Rescue and Recovery plates. There is some cube growth intertwined with some pin mold but I think I may be able to save them. Tried a somewhat modified poke method using tweezer for one, and tried to catch the outer most growth on wedges with the other. Time will tell.

:hamsterdance:AA+ and GT are doing well it seems and already jumping off to the new plate. Very excited to have AA+ back after a couple years of it falling through the cracks. GT is my work horse and while I know starting over from a print can leave a lot of wiggle room for performance, I am cautiously optimistic that they will not disappoint.

:hamsterdance:Also pictured but not part of LAGM are some PFC clones. These are some pins I pull off a recent BRF cake when birthed. They are the first fruits (FF) I have harvested in over a year. However, they were NOT handled properly. Exposed to open air, I picked them barehanded, and they sit in a square ziplock container for a few days. I did not even bother splitting them, though I did at least transfer them using some flamed tweezers. I expect lots of bacteria in the near future. I figured it was my best chance at building up my cultures and spawn quickly. 4 pins on 3 plates and 1 plate attempting a tweezer poke again. We'll see what happens.

Indulgence
Starting from swabs
Species: P. cubensis
Variant: Pearly gates

12/31/20
Plates poured, swab ready. Used the other swab to start a few plates last week so I really hope to get a good plate from this one or I'm out.

01/01/21
Box is ready

Plates are swabbed.

01/02/21
I've decided to add 2 more into the mix. I will also be doing Tat and p. allenii


1/22/21
Update, these are all the plates I got to germinate from pearly gates. Nothing from tat or allenii yet. Very old spores on those so they may not germinate.

I reserve my spot. for jan 1st. Prepares slurry LC to speed up germ muwhahahahhahhahahha


OH shit start from spores. Damn 5th place here I come!

All species and varieties welcome!

I dont have any spores as i am in ID and dont know how to find and its the wrong time of year and gainesville FL is prob too cold too far so I will be growing whatever randon mushroom i find jan 1st and will print and grow it! Now i need SAB, agar, PC and thats it!

Yep. Any variant of any species. Could be cubes, could be pans......
Can be from a print or a MSS or a swab and can use as many different variants/species as you feel like keeping up with.
Only 2 restrictions:
Must start with spores on agar
and
Can't start before 00:00.01 on 01\01\2021

Starting late is totally fine as this experience is meant to be about learning together and don't want people to miss out on that because they weren't ready in time. :smile:

Just to clarify, this is not my thing so I'm just following the rule laid out by those before me. Admins and TC can make any judgment calls that need to be made if it gets to that point.
There may be some contests/prizes offered up as we go but I don't any specifics as of yet.

Wait it doesn't say anything about active species which I probably wont be able to find.

I am planning on grabbing the first lactarius indigo or bolette or something similar.

May I please still enter with a random non active mushroom if I can't find an active one?

BIGFOOTS 2021 GROW-ALONG


Species: P. cubensis
Varieties: Golden Teacher, Albino Penis Envy, Penis Envy


12/29/20 Poured my plates today. 400ml undiluted grain-soak water with 8g agar-agar (telephone brand). I need to start using a towel or something under my SAB floor because it dips in the middle, causing VERY uneven pours resulting in not many plates to be poured. 400ml got me 15 plates.

SAB arm-holes are loosely covered with paper towels. I know it's considered un-necessary but the way my 'lab' is set up air from my central heating gets blasted straight into it from across the room.

Poured at 118-120F and stacked poured plates 15 high in an attempt to beat condensation at its' own game.

Pictures to come after inoculation.



1/1/21 Got my plates inoculated today. 5 each of GT, PE and APE. I think my sterile procedure was pretty good but I'm hungover and shaky as fuck so time will tell! These are my clearest plates yet with very little condensation. Baby steps!

1/7/21 We have germination! After nearly a week of checking on my plates several times a day, posting on this thread and undoubtedly pissing off some of the people following along with my complaining I finally noticed some baby mycelium on one of my APE plates! Out of my GT, PE and APE I wasn't expecting to get anything out of this one in particular.

 

Sorry for the clarity of the pictures. I poured some crystal clear plates, got impatient so I moved my stack closer to my heat vent and that condensed them like a bastard...live and learn. The closeup was attempted to be taken through my jewelers loop. Cheers, mates!

1/15/21 Today was an interesting day. While my BRF pucks were in the PC I decided to give my plates one last look before tossing them after sitting blank for 14 days. The one APE plate I had that germinated has sprouted a tiny spec of myc in another spot and one of my PE plates finally germinated!! I need my jewelers loop to see it, but it's there! Still waiting on GT, but I think these BRF cakes will do the trick. Anyway, I inoculated the BRF cakes (3 GT, 3 PE and 1 APE), took 8 T-1 transfers off my APE plate and did a couple transfers for a non LAGM project. Busy day and it felt good!

Shout out to d3monic for his agar TEK...absolute fucking GLASS!

Alaska's LAGM2021 Big Golden Grow Log

  :morningtoke: 


We'll be growing:

~Psilocybe cubensis: Golden Halo ~

~Psilocybe caerulescens: GA/wild~


~Bonus Exotic: Psilocybe semilanceata: EU/wild~

~Bonus Cube: AA+~


(^^source material^^)

Golden Halo

  31Dec20 16:30:
our time and I'm running like 15 hodgepodge prepours in the lil 16qt on the woodstove.  I just ran and used 50 over the last two days so just a few to get by for now...

:eatsmoke:

For some time now my usual agar recipe has been:
-10g agar
-6g brf (home-ground, and poorly so might I add...)
-500ml H2O

I add my brf to the water and let it sit a while,  occasionally agitating.  I don't filter or decant or anything.  Not here to make beauty plates for the Gram. Agar added cold after the brf soaks a little while, then brought to boil and poured.  Dishes allowed to cool sans lids,  assembled (almost all my prepours now are jars with unmodified lids), and PCd for 30min @15psi (or steamed an hour,  depending on what's going on)...
3Jan21 00:30:
FINALLY streaked all my plates tonight:
-3x semilanceata
-2xGHalo
-2×caerulescens
-2×AA+
Been busy homesteading/ trying to keep the house from freezing so had to get it warm enough in here to wash up and take my work clothes off that I've had on for two days.  AK off grid in the winter is no joke lol.  Time to hurry up and wait!  :harhar:

7Jan21:
  Still waiting on germ for all var/sp.  Went from -20f out/40f in at night to 40f out/75f in at night now so hopefully that spells good things.  Usually G Halo is fast AF to germ.  Actually,  caerulescens had been for me in the past too.  :shrug:

8Jan21

Golden Halo and AA+ showing germination.

9Jan21

Each GH and AA+ got 2x xfers (4x total of each).

10Jan21

Semilanceata and caerulescens both showing clear germination.  Making more prepours today.  :baaaam:

22Jan21

Ok... so last week I made some agar and somehow the fuck or another fucked up my nutes/math.  The resultant plates showed clear,  derpy growth that I had to wait until it grew out until I could proceed with photos.  My semilanceata and caerulescens are just now growing back out,  as is the AA+ (enough to show photos of).  The GH was its usual bonkers resilient to my whoopsie,  and started to throw its trademark rhizo growth after some time.

Took 2 xfers from this plate and may go to grain with a couple wedges for fun.  The blips you see in the center are bits of poorly ground brown rice,  for the record.

OH hell YES !!!!!!!!!
:drunkaf:

P. Cubensis Burma strain
&
Pan Cinctulus

Spores go to agar midnight of the new year m8's

EDIT:
Shout out to alaskappalachian for the Pan Cincts!!:stoned:

EDIT 01/08/21:

Getting stacked for LAGM21

EDIT 01/12/2021
This Burma cubensis culture was start 01/01/2021 and got one transfer onto the plate bellow.

Germ plate then straight from t1 to grain.
UPDATE 01/15/21 Agar has slowed down after being dropped to grain.
Update 1/18/21 Looks like the myc has finally taken ahold of the grain. Woot woot chicken foot.
It's coming along well.


First jars of Burma variant cubensis onto grain.
Next up g2g.

AA mss, I don't have AA in the rotation and I miss it. Looking forward to getting my shit together in life and coming back to cult.:cool:

1/2: AA Spores to agar


1/9
Updating with what was a terribly bacterial syringe, but it looks like the myc is outgrowing it but only time will tell. Im going to biopsy a few plates tomorrow and see if I can get the myc away.

:mushdance: :mushdance:

tiptrippy's LAGM 2021


Cubensis: x7x

Panaeolus Cyanescens: Hawaii


Dec. 29


  • Cooked up 2 new batches of agar.

    1. BRF Agar (green)
      11g agar
      9g BRF
      500ml distilled water

    2. LME Agar (purple)
      11g agar
      11g LME
      500ml distilled water


Dec. 30



  • Made up some new wide-mouth jar lids.
    I hope these little sticker filters hold up in the PC at least once 🤞


Dec. 31



  • Prepared my SAB and plates and all tools for the work to be performed.
  • Took a shower and scrubbed all the dirty man stuff off.
  • Poured a glass of skrewball and hit the ol' pen a few times while waiting impatiently for midnight.


Jan. 1 2021 12:01am

:banana:  :redbanana: HAPPY NEW YEAR!! :redbanana:  :banana:



  • Streaked 2 plates of each agar recipe for each species. (x7x and Pan Cyan)
  • I also took a bunch of xfers of some other cultures I already had going.


Jan. 3 2021 10:30pm

     

I had some really quick growth on my cyan plate. Had a large clump of spores shoot out of the syringe. The goal here is to get fruits as fast as possible so I decided to do only enough transfers to get clean myc for a LC.
Sorry for the blurry pictures this time.

  • Took 1 xfer from the Pan Cyan plate
  • Took 2 TINY xfers of the barely germed x7x


Jan. 11 2021

I mentioned doing a LC in my last update. I will only do that for the x7x. I only need 1qt of spawn at a time for the Pan Cyans.

  • Dropped a large wedge of Pan Cyan to 1qt grain.
  • Took 7 or 8 xfers of x7x each to their own plate.


Jan. 12 2021

 

Very fast growth on my Pan Cyan culture.

Jan. 18 2021



This is current growth 2 days after the jar was shaken on Jan 16. I already have a tray of Pans going in my FC so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this jar yet. I didn't anticipate such fast growth.

Jan. 19 2021

 

Gave it one last shake. I'll mix up some poo/straw tomorrow and pasteurize.

Jan. 20 2021



  • Pasteurized 4qts of 50/50 poo/straw
  • Left them on the shelf to build microbes for 5 days.


Jan. 21 2021

 

Finally got around to working with my x7x again.

  • Took a bunch of T3s of x7x
  • 5 dishes of plain old LME Agar
  • 5 dishes of LMEY agar

Ya, go on so.

Not So TAT
Pan Cyan Wild Coast



Species: Cubensis
Variety: Not So TAT (NST)
Method: Swab to agar
Inoculation: 01/01/21

Species: Panaeolus Cyanescens
Variety: Wild coast
Method: Scalpel to agar
Inoculation: 01/01/21


01/01/21 @ 00.35am

- spores to germ plates, 10g lme, 8g agar and 500ml water

01/03/21
Not So TAT - germination has happened! Very faint hyphae visible on one plate.

01/04/21
Pan Cyan Wild coast - Germination on one plate

01/09/21
Not So TAT - T1 Xfer - took 6 xfers to 2 plates

01/09/21
Pan Cyan Wild coast - T1 Xfer - took 5 xfers to 2 plates. If I get good growth I could potentially go to grains next week!!!

01/14/21
Not So TAT - Took 2 xfers to their own plates. If the growth is clean and I can avoid another satellite, (little bastard):facepalm3: I'll nocc up a jar next.



01/14/21
Pan Cyan Wild coast - Here's a pic of one of my T1 plates. The better of two.

Also chucked a couple of wedges from the germ plate into grain jar. Yolo

01/16/21
Not So TAT - Took a T1 colony to grain out of boredom but it's looks good and clean so why not.

It the colony at 12'


01/16/21
Pan Cyan Wild coast - More experienced cultists than I have questioned the growth pattern of my myc. So I've nocc'd up two fresh plates to see if I can increase my options
