First Grow [PICS]
    #3778282 - 02/14/05 12:48 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I decided about a month ago to try growing mushrooms.  I figured it would be a fun hobby with a wonderful benefit. So these are my first PFTek jars, inoculated Feb. 4 with Mexicub. 




I had lost some jars to water getting in when I boiled, so I had 10 left.  I inoculated 5 with Mexicub, and 5 with Costa Rica.  I keep them in a small Sterlite container in a drawer with a heating pad at a steady 84-86 degrees F.  The Mexicubs showed growth after only 4 days, but around the same time, the CRs started smelling STRONGLY of mold.  I took them out, put them in a plastic bag, and put them in another drawer.  After a few days, I checked and saw still no growth of ANY kind, but still stinky, so I tossed them and washed the jars, and redid them with mexicub. 

So how do things look?  I plan on letting them sit 3-5 days after fully colonized to make sure they're done all the way through.  Then will be dunking for 12 hours in the refridgerator.  After that, they'll be placed in a Sterlite incubator with perlite, and for now this set up will be whatever my room temperature is, which tends to be from 67-73 degrees. 

Any advice is welcome.  :smile:

Edit:  Forgot to mention, the orage blotches on the jars are just reflections of the lamp I used - it has a horrid orangey lampshade.

They look good...so far.

Do you have holes in the top of your lids?

I like to fruit mine at 73 to 76 degrees F...btw.

Agreed.  So far, so good.  Sounds like you've got things set up for ideal growing.  Some patience and you will be well-rewarded.  :smile:
