First pins, Pics and info
    #3401671 - 11/24/04 02:46 AM (12 years, 13 days ago)

Hi,the pics sux b/c of my cam, sorry.. These are Golden Teachers







I am using Perlite in a 20gal fish tank thats wrapped in a blanket(with the help of some duct tape). For heat I fixed a metal bowl around a heat lamp and stuck it in the tank.
I ordered a Repti-Temp 500r(30$) thermostat to regulate light and heat (2 outlets, has a heat sensor and switches off/on.. both light and heat run off of it). I'm using the original florescent tank light on top of the plexiglass. I kept incubation around 83-84f/88-93%humidity and fruiting is now at 75f/97-98% humidity.

I dunked and coldshocked for 16hrs and  birthed these 4 cakes on the 16th.. do they look fine?
I chose not to roll in vermiculite since its pretty messy and this is my first grow.
How long do i have left? :smile: i am itching for fatties  :mushroom2:

I love seeing Pf Tek sucesses.

The Pf tekers of today, are the casers of tommorow.

Grow on my friend!

The spot on that 1 cake is bruising.  I was rearranging and hit it with my sterilized hemostats, opps.. it should be fine i would think.

Heres a little update.. Instead of running my flurescent light with thermostat, I let it run continuesly while I was sleeping.
Much faster growth  :smile:

thx for all your help, next time im thinking of doing GT's with PF cakes and Allen strain with mini casing using the little solo cups.

You are correct that it is faster with the light on but IME faster=smaller. Give them the dark cycle, they'll grow slower but they'll get fatter and bigger in the process. The same usually goes for temps..higher temps with make them grow faster but not as thick as lower temps (the higher and lower side of optimal I'm talking here..not like 60* or anything).
