Mushy-spy supasecret webcam! Plus - does my verm look dry?
    #3829167 - 02/24/05 09:02 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hey Shroomery..
This is my first grow, and so far things are going pretty well I think. I colonized 12 jars (6 lipa yai, 6 b+) successfully - followed the MMGG and was majorly anal about sterility. five days ago, I birthed them into 6 half-cakes rolled in verm and 4 trays cased in straight verm [couldn't find coir or peat in time], as you can see the pics. All pics should be clickable thumbnails. Anyway I am anxiously awaiting my first pins, but i know that shroom growing in an excericise in buddhism - I mean patience - so i'm trying not to complain.
I'm a little confused about the misting tho. I haven't misted since the first day, as my PMP has been reading a consistent 98-99RH, but today i touched some of the verm one top of one of the half cakes, and it seemed really dry - should I still mist every day? Can you tell from the pics if the verm looks try?

Here is my PMP setup, some upcloses of 2 b+ cakes, 1 b+ casing, and one shot of all the lipa cakes and casings... Oh ya, i put the casings in the pmp right after making them. I don't know why i didn't incubate them. Have I fuuked meself?

the tub:

upclose of two different b+ cakes:



b+ casing:


2 lipa casings and the lipa half cakes:


And check out my ultra-stealth webcam... I can check up on my PMP with lifting the lid, or even opening the closet!



and a screen shot...



Do you see what I'm trying to open there with my winamp internet tv? It's pretty awesome, some dude has a cam just like mine broadcasting, but unfortunately the server was full while i took this screenshot, so I can't demonstrate the dual-cam stereo mycoporn which excites me so...

Well that's about it, any comments would be very appreciated!

Oh I forgot to add... my temps reach a low of 67-68 at night and a high of 74-75 during the day.

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."

Dude fat setup, but check it out...

casings with verm give you the (general) wonderful ability to mist with confidence that you really are going to have to overdue things in order to cause problems Those verm chunks not only absorbe and release water, but cause micro pockets of protection for newly forming primordia...or something like that.

In any event, it is generally advised that 100%rh (or thereabouts) can quickly lead to contamn problems (cobweb mold for starters, but all that extra moisture in the air condensates near 100%RH - that meens the contamns that are floating around with it will be forced into a soggy, stable home...first, your substrate layer - then your entire casings.

Point being, you want RH about 85%. Your geolite should do that without any extra airation/humidification measures.

Also, your cakes that have been rolled...they want 100%RH...

So;

I would advise misting coupled with fanning to keep things fresh and moist.

other than that, you look like you are set...the webcam is a nice touch. I want to do that.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.

thanks for the reply... as for the humidity I only have 1 pump on low (there's a high and low setting)with two airstones (hmm maybe i could disconnect one stone), it runs 24hrs... but you think i should turn it off and do the misting fanning thing? My only concern with that is the opening of the pmp and exposing to airborn contams, cause right now i only open it maybe once a day, or once every two days, for a quick peak, or to take those photos...

Yeah, nice set up :thumbup:
Judging by the pics, I don't think the myc would be grabbing it if it were too dry.
But, it pretty much looks the same dry and wet, so, it should feel a little soft to the touch. If it is dry, you can rehydrate by misting with h2o2 solution.
I think it would benefit you to fan manually. Is there a means for fresh air to enter?
I just spray the area with lysol, and let that settle a minute, then open , fan and mist.
I'm contemplating a pump right now, I think I will run it and fan 2 or 3 x a day.

It's difficult to tell by sight alone whether verm is drying out. Try mixing some coir with the verm for your next casing. When coir drys it becomes lighter in color, making it very easy to tell when you have not been misting enough.

Side note: Putting any type of grow operation on a live webcam is a definite nono, I know someone who was arrested for it.

Hey LouiseLouise, are you suggesting fanning as a way to bring the humidity down, for air exchange, or both? I think there's a fair bit of oxygen getting in there by way of the air pump... But yes, I'll fan too starting tomorrow.

Oh and Barney, don't worry I'm not broadcasting anything, tho that being said the law up here are pretty lax... i know a guy who totally got busted and only got a warning and had a much much bigger grow than me, with weed too...

anyway i guess it's good to be wary

be patient with the lipa yai. They tend to pin a little later than other strains (10 days minimum)

dobinky - cool thanks for the info... kinda strange though, i expected otherwise because the lipas colonized the jars much much more aggresivesly than the b+'s...

and ya, Vancouver to be exact.... BC is fairly reasonable. That being said it is still illegal, and I wouldn't want to be flaunting anything. Tho to give you an idea check out this news story which is the most recent shroom related one reported by cbc... Pay attention to the last sentence (what he was charged for)...

Magic mushroom farm found in dorm
Last Updated Oct 20 2004 11:44 AM PDT
CBC News
DAWSON CREEK, B.C. ? Police responding to reports of a man swinging a machete discovered a magic mushroom lab in a college dormitory in Dawson Creek.

Officers say late last week a Northern Lights College student upset his roommates and damaged furniture while swinging a large machete.

Police say the 20-year-old man appeared to under the influence of alcohol and magic mushrooms.

While dealing with the man, officers discovered a magic mushroom cultivation operation in his bedroom.

A 20-year-old from Surrey is facing charges of mischief and possession of a weapon.

No shroom charges at all, eh? :wink:

...which only goes to show - don't be swinging around large machete's if you're growing.

I've been telling people this for years... but do they listen? Neeooope...

Yeah, I was suggesting that even tho there is air entering, co2 sinks and maybe to let gas extange a couple times a day might help :thumbup:
