A Very Strange Tale and Questions on How to Proceed
    #3194095 - 09/29/04 02:40 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

During my strange psychedelic bender last week on something in the neighborhood of ten grams of very blue shrooms, I did a totally wierd thing. I can kind of remember doing it, but I have no clude as to why I did it. I have been putting my birthed caked into a thirty gallon aquarium and growing shrooms in there. I had worked through most of the necessary trial and error of growing shrooms via cakes, and had about five cakes left inside of the aquaruim that had been through about their first flush. But somehow I go the idea to do something very wierd. I have a vague memory of doing all this but have no idea what motivated me. At any rate, I awoke to find that I had put nearly everything in my house even slightly associated with drug paraphanelia, or alchohol into the tank.

This included all my empty shroom syringes,; a two foot high male marijuana plant I was growing (I think the males are pretty, and I like the big leaves.), two empty scotch bottles (Johny Walker Red) an empty wine bottle (a perfectly lovelyand very dry French red miraculously priced at only twelve dollars), an eighth of some kind bud, a mini-hooka, 100 grams worth of red phosphorous, a bottle of reagant grade iodine and a large beaker from back when I was attempting to make meth (I am sooooooooooo happy I never succeeded in that insane plot, a bi-polar maniac wont to binge on drugs when they are about does NOT need to be hooked on that drug), a cheap electronic scale, and sundry other goodies. And all was mixed up into a pile.

Well, the cakes were buried in dirt from the pot plant, so I gave up on trying to redeem them. I picked out all of the other garbage and threw them all away, heaved a sigh of sorrow and got busy innoculating more cakes. But as a last ditch effort I decided to see if I could imporvise something with what was left of the cakes. So I broke them up into little pieces and covered them with miracle grwo soil, and put in the rest of my vermiculite and rice after I was done with the new cakes. I looked around my pad for other stuff that might have "nutritiveness" for mushrooms and came up with instant oatmeal, I ground up a whole bunch of that into a powder and mixed it up with the soil, rice, vermiculite and cakes. I just decided I would fan it a couple of times a day and see what would happen.

The humidity in my tank is at a good solid 100 percent. And the temperature is staying pretty well between 74 and 78 without me having to do much of anything. This was on Saturday when I started this. It is now Tuesday night and colonies of mycelium are starting to pop up all over the place, and in fact, the entire lump of 'stuff' is covered in a fine misty coat of mycelium.

What then should I do and how should I proceed to potentially harvest mushrooms? Can I be hopeful of mushrooms? Or does it just sound like something infinitely bizarre? What are folks thoughts? Taking for granted by the way that what I have done with the combination of all the wierd stuff (glass bottles, meth chemicals, etc.) was totally bizarre.

Are you sure it isn't cobweb?

Nope, I double checked to see if it is cobweb, because that was my first thought, but it isn't. I have had cobweb start on several of my cakes. On one or two while they were still colonizing. I threw them away. But it also started on some of my cakes while still fruiting. I just picked it off and theings went fine with them. Its not cobweb though. It is clearly mycelium.

Just to make sure, I went and took a chunk of the stuff out of the tank and took it away from the tank so that I could smell it. The tank has a kind of sour smell to it, I am assuming it if the otameal. So I wanted to get the stuff away from the tank to get a better idea. The chunk has that very distinctive "mushroomy" smell to it...that smell you get from cakes when they are first birthed.

During my perusing of the board, I remember someone saying that in a casing one doesn't want the mycelium to get too thick or else it causes problems. I am wondering if my little experiment is something along the lines of a casing, and if what I should do to get the thing to start making shrooms. I have wondered if it is making mycelium so fast because the cakes had already been fruiting and had procued their aborts. They were producing nice stately looking shrooms. Maybe???? I just dont know. I am barely beyond the beginner stage in this hobby. So I am kind of at a loss as to how to proceed.

sour smell = bad. if you have that going on and you cased with oatmeal that wasn't colonized, i'd say you have a huge possiblility of inside contamination on that oatmeal. best thing to do is dump it in an outdoor patch attempt.

i'm not suggesting you do this right away, but that sour smell has happened to me on one of my casings recently where i decided to give it a little extra "food" so it would last for longer flushes. i opened my chamber and it smelled like contams. i looked at the side of the casing (i use clear casing containers with foil around them) and there was the green monster. it was my fault for giving them the "food"... so after breaking it up in a ziplock and picking out the green chunks, i put it on one side of my compost pile, barely below the surface. there's myc poking through now...

i have a successful grow beside the compost pile, mostly following moe's outdoor tek. i actually have mushies popping out, but they're not even close to mature yet. outdoor grows are very easy to start, especially since mother nature takes care of those contams for you somehow.

wait for others to chime in, my advice may not be sound... but i believe it is right now (i'm stoned too... :laugh:)

I live in an Apt, so I can't really do the outside grow.But I do not think that they are contaminated. I woke up this morning and did a fan. I take my sixteen inch fan and blow everything out of there. When I do that, I am left only with that sweet mushroomy smell. The mycelium grows by the hour. There is a ton more of it now than even when I went to bed. I really need advice on how to continue.

Another thought that I have is that maybe since the oatmeal is all mixed up with a bunch of miracle grow soil, maybe it is micking an outdorr grow to some degree. But this is just a thought. I just really don't kow what to do next.
