Everything is looking real GOOD!!!

Patience is a VIRTUE in this hobby.

If you do this again I would recomend punching some holes in the sock before fruiting. I wouldnt do that now.....leave these alone, your not far from a nice flush. Sometimes you will get some that pop up 3-4 days ahead of the rest.

I would also like to hear someone elses opinion on poking some holes in the sock.

this is simply amazing. what a fantastic idea. my foaf's first grow was with rye grain spawned to straw. cased with sphagnum and verm. great results. my foaf used refrigerator drawers to pack the straw into. and used the fridge as his inc/fruiting chamber. he was looking into containers that strawberries and fruit come in but couldn't find any large enough to suit his needs (green plastic containers poked full of diamond shaped holes). this weeping tile sock is fantastic. you could even sterilize it first if someone desired. I'm not so sure about casing it. if you kept the moisture up in the fruiting chamber it might not be needed. you could have a nice clean harvest with no casing on the stems of the shrooms. I wouldn't cut holes into the sock. its porous enough. great work and thanks for some great ideas. I'll be sure to tell my foaf

with the casing, this log is almost 1 to 1 with pf tek its just a few extra steps for so much more bang for the buck. when i say 1 to 1 i mean you treat it as if it was a pf tek cake when you fruit it with the exception of the spawn run, and poppies was like 3 days when my whole grain spawn runs are more like 2 weeks. our chan is about taking cake makers and taking them a step up. one should be able to go from cakes to this tek for as little as 25 dollars =) Patience is a VIRTUE in this hobby. this is a UNDERSTATEMENT poppies, hold your shirt, hold your horses. lmfao havea great one

ALRIGHT PIC UPDATE! Day 16... sorry to leave you guys hanging, been a little busy, plus it has been every day, but they do grow that fast check these out!

LOG 2: :eek:


I figure they will kick more ass as the first couple are picked, so the myc can work on all the primordia on there

Log 1:


some holes had to be cut to accomidate mushes growing under sock because this one was not packed tight enough... But i have learned my lesson on that, which is most important thing when going for perfection...  learning experiences

SO THERE!  leave comments!

this grow has been grilled to shit, eyed 1500 times. you did very good, 9 out of 10 anal retentive points poppies. you lost the 1 point when it came to packing the logs with all your body weight. all in all i wouldnt say youve fucked this up at all. hell of a first time job man, lucky ducky i wish my first grow was like that. my first grow i got less than a quarter ounce dry from 12 pf tek cakes, when i see a quarter just chillin on log 2.

how many pins are you finding underneath the sock poppies? and is it only happening in the sock that wasn't stuffed really full? im considering doing this at the end of the week when my jars are hopefully done. if pinning is a proplem under the sock perhaps i might try removing the sock once the straw is fully colonized. did you cut the straw up into little pieces or stuffed it in whole???

the pins UNDER the sock will ONLY occur ifit is not packed tightly enough (which is as tight as you can pack it) If it is packed tightly enough, all mushes should appear outside sock, which is the point of it all

Doesn't bulk substrate (the straw in the log) normally shrink with each flush?... So won't the sub-sock pins be much more common/problematic in the forthcoming flushes?
Maybe removing the sock would be good idea.
