Hydrapod test in progress
    #381551 - 08/29/01 05:56 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

Here is the Mcman Hydrapod set up in my salvaged University incubator to keep it at 75F. It has the optional deluxe florescent minilight installed on the dome. The cakes are freshly placed in the chamber in these pictures.



I am trying a few different kinds of cakes with different species. Included in the image are 4 different cubensis, 1 tampanensis, 1 mexicana and 1 weilii. These are standard halfpints and should give everyone an idea of the scale of this thing.

The tampanensis and mexicana cakes were a bit dry and unconsolidated. They fell apart somewhat when removed from the jar, especially the mexicana. I left the mexicana on the plastic lid to firm up before I placed it directly on the gro rock. I didn't want seeds to get down into the gravel.



I expect this thing to be pretty noisy with the airpump but I can barely hear it when set on a nonvibrating steady surface or suspended from its cord. I does make a gentle gurgling, waterfall sound like one of small indoor tabletop fountains.

The Spore Work's dark project scientists are busy reverse engineering the McManian Hydrapod technology.

those,cake look really great, although I never even got in to cakes, just didn't mix well for me, so I went strait to bird seed I'm still not very good at making cakes, but I'm all over bird seed and grass seed. That is well thought piece of equipment and I hope all the best for your business!

I don't do cakes either and I cheated to make those. I just took quarts of seed and packed them into halfpints and let them grow back together for 4 days. The dark one is a horse manure cake colonized with weilii.

Here is a ideal that might work for this pod. Berry Baskets, the kind that you get at stores and stands full off berries. I used these to make straw//grain cakes. but found there was no need to remove the basket, the mushrooms grew out fron the sides very well, and when it was time to havest the substrate wasnt disturbed or damaged by there removal.
I think these would work well for this and be easyer then to use glass jars. Also they hold a bit more substrate.

This image is day 6 in the pod. A few pins developed immediately in the central cake (Puerto Rican) but have now stalled. No pins on any of the others. The bright white fluffy cake in front is Ecuador cubensis. Today is day 8 and there doesn't seem to be any change.


The pod seems to be functioning correctly. The cakes were exposed to a few days of extreme temperature fluctuations from 75-95F but I don't think this caused any damage. I am not sure what the problem is at this time. I don't have much experience with cakes so it is hard for me to know what is happening. Perhaps the humidity is too high, since I have not yet reduced the the flood rate. I will do that today and report back.

This last pictures shows some of the cakes with mycelium growing into the gro rock.

According to Stamet?s TMC the pinning temperature for P.cubensis is 74-78 ?F.(air temperature that is, the subtrate temperature will be a few degrees higher).
