first time growing
    #3793032 - 02/17/05 01:13 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

My Ecuadorian P.Cubensis experiment has taken 2 1/2 months to get to where it is now, and the grain is about 95% consumed by the mycelium. Right now it is 75 F. Will it start fruiting when the grain is fully consumed or do I need to relocate my growbag? ( I do not have an adequate growing environment as of yet) It is on top of the fridge where the temp is always the same. Help!!

yeah it might. I would start worrying about casing that thing soon

I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come alive from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

2 months is a long while. you could cold shock it and fruit it in the bag but the flush won't be as big as a casing.

What do you mean by casing? Like I said, this is my first experiment with it. All I have to go by is the instructions that came with the bag. I didn't think that they would grow very good in the bag because its so confined and although it's tall, there just isn't enough enough room in it. Would I be able to take it out and put it in something else without contaminating it? If so, what? I am happy that it is doing anything at all, but the more I think about it, and read about it, the more it seems to me the growbag was a mistake for this type of mushroom.

I would go to walmart aand invest in some stuff to make a cheap incubator and terrium. I built both of mine for about 75 dollars and that included the two submersible water heaters needed. Good luck read about incubators on this site to get a feel for what you want.

peace

I think my growbag is getting ready to fruit now because there are what looks like little mushrooms that I can see through the side of the bag and on the bottom, but none on top. I still think the bag is too small with not enough room for the shrooms, and altogether a mistake. Can I safely remove the contents and put it in a large jar without messing things up? It just looks like it wants to get OUT of the bag...its bulging and I dont see how we could reseal the bag after the first flush anyway...help!!

Yeah Gem, some good advice for you on this thread. I have a bag full of corn that is well on its to being colonized. I definitely plan on taking the mycelium covered substrate out of the bag and mixing it with some sort of casing tek. Not sure which one though...read up on it and keep me up to date with your result...gl

You need a certain number of posts to view pictures. 40, 50 something...and I think 1 month registered.

I was told to case my colonized substrate with vermiculite, and I did so, but apparently even after hours in the oven, it was not sterile and promptly began growing green mold all over it...we destroyed it. I have several other jars still growing, uncontaminated. and I am thinking of just not casing them, or keeping the vermiculite in the oven for even longer. If I decide not to case them this time around, all I have to do is lower the temperature, expose them to a little sunlight, and they should begin to fruit, right?

Use either a pressure cooker or a microwave to sterilize the verm. In addition to the two pinning triggers you mentioned, you need the third and final pin trigger. Fresh air. Lots and lots and lots and lots of it for quick pinning and lots of nice healthy shrooms.

thanks...I have had more failure than success with the brown rice, more than have of my jars get that nasty smell and have to be tossed. I pressure cooked them for over an hour...what am I doing wrong? Is it too wet?

Quite probably. PM Diver about water content of brown rice. He's got it right, and says it can be difficult. Over wet often leads to bacteria which smells horribly sour.
