Biggest Harvest
    #3309399 - 11/02/04 03:51 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I was wondering what is your biggest bulk harvest, 1st flush and total, what did you do. What strain was it. post pics if you got them I'm very interested. I want to maximize yield in a bulk setup so any good story's will help.

Well aside from a lone PF cake and popcorn spawned to houseplants (which was successful but contamned in seconds after the first flush), I've only had one really successful grow, and that was rye grain spawned to straw, which I REALLY want to try again, because it was great!
Looked like this when it was drying. Not sure on the total weight, but came in a smidgin over 2 oz dry. Basically just Mycofile's bulk neglect tek, sans the manure and strain isolate. The strain was Amazonian and it was a multispore syringe I made from a cap I printed. So get crackin, you've got some bulk to turn out!

selling mushrooms would be illegal. 2 ounces is merely for self purposes.

:mushroom2:  Nice haul!!!  The most I've ever harvested on the first flush was 28g, and it was a cased rye substrate.  Sorry, no pics of my latest, but it looks like I've got some work to do. :mushroom2:

Possesion of mushrooms is illegal in the US, just not AS illegal as selling them. You wont go away for as much time.

My shroomies go for 150 a zip, 40 and 1/8th. I could sell them for 60 as that is the regular price around here. Pounds are much cheaper though and thats how almost all mine goes..right to one person. Safty first.

Im unsure of my largest harvest ever..I got 5 3/4 ounces dry the night before last..just came off the dehydrators..It's looking like another 4 tonight too..I dont think I've harvested more then 6 1/2 onces at once.

6 1/2 ounces.... damn! Scatmanray's grows get me so hot and bothered, I wish I could grow and roll like that.  :shroomer:  Mind cluing me in on what kind of substrates you like?

60 an 8th?  Yikes!  Around here it's about 25 usually, most I've seen was when my friend handed over 35 for an 8th, and even then the dealer was almost apologetic about the inflated cost.

But yah it's all personal, except for what I trade for herbals.        :stash:

I meant 30 an 1/8 by the way 40 was a typo.

It will be hard for me here (in holland) to sell them I think. There are large growing farms here who dump the shrooms on the market for almost nothing. Since last year its illegal to sell dryed mushrooms, hehe one of the reasons I was asking bout the conserving..;) So I can sell overhead in a legal way.
But we weill see how things work out. Selling is not the main issue I am interested so I will be able to grow for own and friends. And I just find it interesting to get knowledge of the whole process. Casing cakes, making sporeprints syringes the different substrates.

Ive been growing marihuana in the past and I was just as exited, to see the little seed turn into a treelike bush 3,5 meters high (10 feet!). Buying clones and see them grow into majestic buds etc.....
I have sold a part of the stuff (later, to a coffeeshop) but those were kind of wild years so me and friends consumed very much of the harvests. I gave away a lot as well.

Anyway my biggest shroomharvest is, ehmmm.... finding 40 liberty caps! :laugh:

My small casing trays give me 1 zip dry per tray per flush for the first 3 flushs.
In the Southwest we sell for 10 a gram too.

Here is just a pic of a small harvest of south americans.
