Hmm if only a few drops came out when squeezed firmly then it wasn't over field capacity.

Also the over field capacity would make sense if he barely misted and still had good amount of water on the surface even with a heavy pinset.



I get a good amount of water on the surface even when I try to make a dry substrate. It depends on the amount of humidity.

About the IR sterilizer, I can't tell you about reliability, but the time it takes to heat your scalpel only depends on the power of the unit (watts).

I think I've experienced that as well. If that's the problem, the fruits will be bigger in subsequent flushes.

Gotcha bro. Thanks for clearing that up.

That makes sense, I’ll go for it and see, cheers. Think I’m protected on eBay regardless so if it’s a crap show I’ll send it back.

Yup it’s me again. Shit, I post too much..

The mushrooms that didn’t abort in that tub do have that overhydrated look, but it could also just be a shitty culture.


Sometimes you get one that pins really well but then mostly aborts, it’s the worst.

In my experience, shoeboxes sitting out by themselves perform poorly. I fruit my shoeboxes in a monotub with micropore tape over the holes.

Why not just use to small trash bags at that point?

Years ago I used to grow loads of T3 thai cubensis, they were very enjoyable during the day.

I don't see any mention of them anymore.

AKA what do you mean by overhydrated look? Do you mean those stretch marks on the taller fruits? I just harvested a 3rd flush ape and they all had those stretch marks and were more long and thin than short and fat. I was thinking maybe I overmisted.

What happens when you plant grass to a pure  coir jar, let the grass grow, PC the whole thing, and then transfer semi myc to it?



Gonna find out

Thanks A.k.a, could you please elaborate on the "overhydrated look"?

Also keeping in mind that: when adding substrate to the spawn, I made sure I squeezed each handful of substrate as hard as I could, until there were only 1 or 2 droplets of water leaking from my hand.

And since it seems that genetics or not, overhydration is a problem of mine here, what could I do to have a substrate less hydrated?

I have a Spawn/Sub ratio of 1:1. Substrate being CVG.

By a ratio of 1:1, I mean that I mix 1 jar of Spawn with 1 jar of Substrate - and I am talking of volume here. So I put 3 jars of Spawn and 3 jars of Substrate in this shoebox.

Or did I fuck this up and should be considering an equal weight of Spawn to an equal weight of Substrate?

Use less water if it's over hydrated.

It’s kind of hard to explain but when they’re too wet they get dark and the caps get lumpy.

They also just have “a look” which I know doesn’t help but after you’ve grown for a minute you’ll get an eye for it.

I feel like big beads of moisture on the surface creates less pins than tiny beads on the surface. My boxes that look more lighter brown and smaller beads seem to have more pins than my boxes with a lot of big beads of water (I don't mean pooling though).

Thanks for the input everyone :thumbup:
I'll lower the water content of my CVG prep for my next shoebox.

2 shoeboxes of maz that grew these off white/light yellow booger things on the surface. It's probably contams but it's strange that it only grows on the surface and the myc decides to pin on the sides instead.
