Bulk grow cross country!? Please help!
    #3593213 - 01/07/05 12:29 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hello everyone. I am writing a short FICTIONAL story that is getting published VERY SOON. There is a SERIOUS problem at the end of the story, and I would like everyone's input. You can probably skip to the last paragraph, and be able to answer. Read the whole thing for details.

-------------------
I was on vacation. At home during that vacation, I had 10 pounds of pasteurized compost in spawn run. I returned home 8 days into that spawn run to find nice 100% completion. 

Sounds gravy right? Now try this on for size. All of a sudden I was to be moved from where I was in Virginia to California (cOaSt To CoAsT!) 8 days after casing...and the move was to be in a car...not a plane.

Suddenly my happy, fun loving cubie world was shattered. What to do? My Agar dishes had all sorts of soft white love... loving ... them ...not only that, they were 10 MASTER strains of different cubies!

What to do? I called a close friend that I could trust. I sat him down and told him the deal. He understood, and happily agreed to help. I am a pretty generous person when it comes to friends... plus he knew he would get HOOKED up if things went well. Besides that, if I didn't get his help all of my love was good as garbage!

So, I moved operations to his house. I left written directions. He had the ability to call me any time for questions. A couple of days later I arrived in California. I called my friend and gave him the green light. He immediately harvested the first flush, packed things up (including my precious agar dishes!) and mailed everything.

-----------------
Now here is where I need your help. How should my character in this story ship those damned casings!? :confused: How do you pack something like that without killing your next fluhes?

(extra questions below)
Also, what would you have done differently. Any other ideas or thoughts concerning moving operations like that? Is it just a plain bad idea, and shouldn't have been attempted in the first place? Would you trust someone who has no prior knowledge of raising cubies (no matter how smart they are in the first place)...to see your casings through a few flushes?

Please help, this short fictional story goes to review for publication VERY soon!

Thanks everyone.

You don't send them. You give them to your friend for helping you out. You have your master strains, so you start growing new casings.
Throw your friend a bone and don't take the risk shipping them.

I agree with both you guys. You SHOULD'VE put them in the car. Too late for that though, so definately give them to your friend. He could've just been a scumbag and taken all your shrooms.

Don't ship em, esp to california. Let him keep em. Make new ones and be very happy your agar master strains made it. Dont' eat yellow snow.

I think you guys misunderstood.

First of all, this is all in the future. As far as the story goes so far, the character has just gotten back from vacation. He is about to case. He is NOT PLANNING ON having CUBIES shipped. Those he will give to the friend (first flush at least). He is planning on having CASINGS shipped as soon as first flush picked; bad idea? What if casing was to be impulse seeled in a bag so it was secure, then slapped in a box and shipped out?

personally, i'd just carry the non-fruiting casing with me, or give it to my friend... but take the petri dishes with you... impulse sealed would be a good thing. :smile:

you're gonna want to hold on to those strains since you can't get spores shipped to CA very easily...
