After a long time away from the Shroomey BB (cuz of the upgrade, etc.) it's good to be back.

McMan, good to see you back in the innovating biz. Good luck with the Hydro Pod.

Peace.

McMan, have you cleared this cake growing kit with PF ?

I heard he was not happy about this and was bringing a gun to the next spore vendor meeting :wink:.

Great job, looks like a lot of fun :smile:

Ohhh silly me. It seemed that this thing was only for cakes. It just seemed so impractical to build such a fancy device for something as impractical as cakes (if your going to go to all that trouble why not just try bulk). I had forgotten other species. Buuuuut have any other species been grown successfully in "the hydro-pod"?

I call bullshit on the 2-3 ounces in 1 month from cakes. This is just like your previous statement of how the MC can produce 9 lbs in a month. You make it seem like you use BRF cakes in the first thread but now you scorn them? Why? Your words are smelly Mr. McMan.

And Mr. Mcman it is simply un feasable for it to produce those results. Unless the "bio-efficiency" (propably not the rihgt word but the ratio of dried mushrooms to the ammt of dried substrate) of your strain is much higher than that of other strains that most of us use. Is 10% the general rule? So 30 oz of dry straw. Will 2 lbs of dry straw even fit into the hydropod?

I'm not trying to give you hell this is just something new if we want to be scientific about this we must pose many questions to the presentor.

And does this system offer the same "air entertainment" as the previous MC? You say it does but yu went on about how there needed to be jets of air to circulate the air. Does the air move around well with all those rocks in the way?

Hey McMan where did you get all the nifty clear dome tops for the hydro-pods?

Having a layer of pebbles at the bottom is a great idea b/c the c02 will sink but propably not as much with all that "air entertainment" but a good idea none the less. Do you have pics of the "guts" (the inside and how it works) of the hydro pod? It looks like there are places for pics on the features page but no pics. How many 1/2 pint cakes can happily fit in there?

NuShroom posted a close-up of his cake in the hydra-pod over at the forest floor (the link in the post above)... Damn does that cake look healthy! LIke I said before, I can't wait to see pics of mushrooms growing in the pod... Good Job Mc...

THANKS!! I'm counting my pesos. Could you please tell me if there is a "warranty"??
If the Pod should need replacement parts, will you make them available in the future?
I'm assuming if something breaks down early on you'll back up your product. How "loud" is the
air pump?
I can finally grow shrooms..but I am constantly adjusting humidity, tweaking something here or there,
checking, rechecking. I got enough bins, coolers, pumps,bottles,misters, tubing to last me forever.
The time alone in Home Depot and Walmart over the last 6 months is worth the Hydropod.
The Hydropod looks like the solution. Easy Peasey.
Order coming.

McMan, that MC you used to manufacture is truely impressive. I am humbled...:cool:

Secondly I feel the HydraPod addresses the needs of the newbie 'shroom grower (it's target audience) extremely well. It is priced competively for that market and they will get their money's worth. Also (as Workman implied) if I was going to do a 'test bed' for advanced recipe teks or finicky shroom species... HydaPod would be choice for that. Alot of you look at this design and say "I could build that for only a fraction of that cost". Probably..., we've all done that with other style terrariums. But give McMan due credit for an efficient and well thought out design that you would be borrowing your concepts from. Your going to see more and more of these around as the design becomes recognized for it excellence.

Support the FSR:smile:

Regarding the pics from NuShroom (link in a previous message) the size of that cake is very impresive on day#19. However the pic on day#22 appears, to me anyway, to be too wett. It looks like water droplets all over the fungus. From my limited knowledge, water droplets that big reduce fruiting big time.

MC is there a way of controlling how much water/humidity that the cakes receive if one determines that the cakes are too dry or too wett?

Thanks
Jammer

MnMan I find it hard to believe that you are mis informed about bio-efficiency. You divide the dry mushroom weight, not wet weight, by the dry substrate weight. So a greater than 100% efficiency is obviously impossible. It's the same concept as paper chromatography and the retardation factor; impossible to be greater than 100%.

So are there any pics of the inside?

I thought about grain but you mentioned straw which is less dense than grain.

Once again you show no results in pics; only astronamical claims.

Actually I am unaware of your policy on pics other than you have never produced any substancial ones.

I posted my most intimate of pictures here and you woln't even post pics of your products doings. I am not asking for illegal mushroom pics just edibles would be sufficient but you woln't even do those.

And why do you calculate it with the wet weight? That just ruins the real %; with the wet weight your answer is totaly screwed up but it looks huge and nice. If you do it with the dry weight it is the real effeciency IE how much mushrooms are produced to how much substrate is used.

Enlighten me as to why one would use the wet weight.

Fanaticus has some info. about BE, which is taken from the Fungi Perfecti catalog...

BIOLOGICAL EFFICIENCY (from Fungi Perfecti Catalog)

Biological Efficiency is a term frequently used in the mushroom industry to describe yield potentials of mushrooms from various agricultural by-products (straw, sawdust, sugar cane bagasse, banana fonds and coffee plant wastes, to name a few). This formula was first developed by the Button mushroom (Agaricus) industry.

Simply put, a yield of 1 lb. of fresh mushrooms from 1 lb. of dry substrate is considered to be 100% Biological Efficiency.

Since mushrooms are approximately 90% water and the base substrate is typically raised to 75% moisture, 100% Biological Efficiency is equivalent to saying that 25% of the wet mass of the substrate is converted into fresh mushrooms.


McMan, you said that Paul had a new book come out in 2000; I was just wondering what book it was?

Yes enough about BE lets get back to the real topic. I can see why they do wet weight b/c agaricus mushrooms are not usually dried.

So McMan any pics of the guts of the cultivAtor. And where did you get the dome lid?
