Update on my Orissa (2nd grow) PICS
    #3402786 - 11/24/04 10:44 AM (12 years, 19 days ago)

This is my second set of jars. They were knocked up on 10/15, were 100% colonized on 10/29, dunked/cold shocked/rolled and then birthed on 11/06, first signs of pins on 11/17 and this is what they look like today. The 3 casings are straight verm 1-cake casings. Already they seem much larger than anything I got off my first set of jars (ban nathon). So far I am really like these Orissa, colonized real fast and seemed to pin pretty quick too. Here take a look:

EQ off a cased compost substrate in a 24 X 36 X 8 mortor mix tub. Compost was about 6.5 inches deep. LOL.....tub of substrate weighed about 75 pounds. But, it produced some real honkers.

damn Katrina, looking good, also cant that humidifier in the pic be on the outside of the chamber, if its the one I'm thinking of you run hoses to a tube with holes in it. cant you just put the tube with the holes in the chamber, or maybe its a totally different one, and then id be just rambling on. anyway looking good on the grows, and good luck with the future flushes.

Actually Kykid, I am not using a humidifier, just straight perlite.  The thing you see in my chamber is a glass jar full of water that has my non-submersible acquarium heater hanging in it.  I don't keep my house very warm, plus its old and drafty, so I have to use these to get my temps up to make stuff happen.  Its the easiest thing I've found and it also tends to help with humidity.  All I have to do is keeping filling up the water every couple days as it gets lower, with some peroxide added of course :smile:

Nope, not rambling.  I am the queen of rambling and you didn't even come close :smile:  My pics aren't the best sometimes and look misleading.  I took that one sideways and meant to turn it upright before I uploaded, and then forgot.  Thanks, though, I am really excited, about this grow, looks better than my previous grow which is just starting its third flush right now.  First 2 flushes I only got like 24 gm dried, which from seeing other posts, was not very good.  My stupid Hawaiians are still not 100% colonized and I'm bummed about that (1 whole month today).  I think it was the flour I used.  I bought new and got from the store instead of organic from the health food store, only thing I can figure out anyway.

Could be flour but most probably your preperation. Pack the substrate as lightly as possible and make sure water content is perfect. Water content can take a while before you get it perfect but its a big part of colonization time and I think of your first flush, unless your dunking..even still though I think it has an effect.

Scatmanrav: I am really careful about packing. The reason I thought it was my flour is because the first 2 batches I did colonized fairly quickly, especially the Orissa and I used organic flour for those. I ran out and had to get some from the store all bagged up like regular flour and used it for these Hawaiians and they are the ones that have taken a month and still not 100%. I had to waste the whole bag, but I'm thinking maybe should go back to the organic stuff.

Well 4hodmt, maybe YOU use flour but I prefer brown rice flowers for mine. Especially daisies :smile:

Are you saying it was regular flour and not brown rice flour? Its all organic..just ones brown and ones white..I hear brown makes better substrate. Try it but it is just possible when you make up a batch you didn't do them the same as the first time. It can often be difficult to exactly duplicate something if only your second time doing it. It could be the flour though.

yeah, that's the one I'm talking about lemon. But its not a he who i thought had it, its a girl, don't you see the lips in the avatar and not to mention the name.. come one captain obvious...naw I'm just messing with you, common mistake. and yeah were thinking of the same humidifier, also does yours work good, Ive seen them and a friend uses his in a ten gallon for a reptile but i was wondering if it would work good in something larger like a 20 gal, it might just be a way yo make use of my old fish tank, i also seen that mushroom magic uses the same ones on their kits.
