opinion of mycobags.
    #3673357 - 01/24/05 07:01 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hey i was just wanting to get some input from some people who have experimented with them, preferably the ones you buy online premixed and sterilized.

mycobags are very good and very easy for beginners looking to explore the realm of mycology. you will find over time that it's much cheaper and fulfilling to just prepare your own substrate but mycobags are a good product for the new guys. considering it's almost fool proof, why not give it a try? i give it 2 thumbs up.

this is my second try, well my first try is still colonizing, i used to pf tek method. Its been about 3 weeks now and all of the sudden i just lost almost half my jars to this black mold, so i tossed them, i know the yield depends on strain and growing conditions, but what would a tipical flush from a mycobag produce(rough estimate)

i yielded a quarter from the first flush. second flush was pretty weak but that might be more my fault considering i didn't do any dunking. but you could always let the bag colonize completely then take your huge cake and prepare casings. you could probably get 2-3 decent sized casings off a bag.

sorry to hear about your shit getting contam'd. better luck next time, i'd say. mycobags are a good investment and you'll rarely have to deal with contams. just be sure to clean the injector disc and needle tip with some alcohol and no problems should arise. just be sure to break up the substrate inside the bag before inoculating. all the bags i've gotten, the substrate was condensed down pretty tight and i made the mistake of shooting it up in this condition. colonization was extremely slow. and be sure to break up the colonized mycelium when it's at 80%.

thanks for the info. soon i will be starting my own lil stealth grow. my plan is to use a mycobag with golden teacher, and the whole bag will be put into a 5 gallon bucket with prolly a half inch or so of steralized vermiculite and water on the bottom. any opinions / comments are greatly welcomed, plus, ill be sure to take pics as i go along.

if you use the bags you don't need to humidify that way, the bag does that.

well that really isn't necessary. you see the bag itself acts as a terranium. the filter patch located at the top of the bag is for the exchange of air and gas and since the bag is sealed it holds humidity quite well. a terranium isn't necessary unless you plan on ripping open the bag and either fruiting the cake as is or preparing casings. another thing, if you do plan on opening the bag and taking another path, then use perlite instead if verm. verm doesn't perform quite well in comparison with the perlite. the perlite works well because of the tiny porous holes and the humidity produced is very effective for keeping the Rh up. the trick is to not add too much water to the perlite.....just a 1/2". don't forget the hydrogen peroxide as well. and don't lay the cakes on top the perlite for the reason of water logging.

peace

I suppose it may be a little late now, but my mycobags were very difficult to get fully colonized. I allowed for enough colonization to take place, followed by crumbling, followed by shaking, and finally a lot of waiting.

I'd put my money towards starting in on some home made cakes.

i was interested in getting a "madbag" from the madseason website..they say this bag is different from other mycobags bc this bag is designed to do everything... its not required to case the substrate..one can fruit in the bag as well.. whether this bag is really different than any of the other bags ive seen i dunno.. but on the website they have directions that tell you the simple procedures from inoculation to harvesting.. the only thing i noticed was they said to leave the bag "undisturbed" until its fully colonized.  As i have read in MANY threads, people have stated that mixing up the bag here and there while the mycelium is necessary to keep the mycelium growing the proper way... Which way do i go.. follow the website... or take the advice of the master growers here?  really not trying to be annoying, but i would like things to go the correct way.
