They're pretty nice-looking cakes so far, thedm9!
And without all the fucking around too that I remember doing... :wink:

And that's an impressive first pin as well  - looking forward to see how it turns out...Good luck man! :smile:

Substrate [Re: ralphster44]

For your substrate you said you used BRF and verm.
(Bye the way those cakes look nice to me, I've been in
contamination hell lately)
*Can the BRF be sustituted with Soy Flour just the same?
*How wet were your cakes when you innoculated them?

McMan McHappy you said;
>Soy flour has a MUCH higher amount of available protein so you will definitely increase
your chances of contaminations.<

If your substrate is sterilized effectively.. why do higher protein substrates have that risk?
If there's a competitor in the substrate to begin with, shouldn't the competitor still win
despite what nutrition is available? Or is it the reproductive speed of the competitor
that gives it the advantage.?
I just used Millet flour instead of BRF in finch seed cakes ..It will be interesting to see if
there is a difference. I also did a mish mash of rye,finch,brf, vermic as an experiment.
hmmm TOO MUCH protein eh?? splain please.. thanks

BUMP!

I'm currently in the process of saving for the Hydra-pod system and it's encouraging to see photographs of it in action (very exciting actually) so keep the log going please!!

hey Thedm9,
dont ya think your friend could just boil regular water to get rid of the chemicals in the water, instead of wasting money on bottled water? Just a thought

Well It's been a while and because of other life distractions I didn't post updates as I wanted. My FOAF did get a HUGE flush from that first batch you can see to the left and a few from a 2nd flush. Right now the cakes are almost expired and will be thrown out soon and replaced with some Cambodians I have ready to birth.

What you see growing in the right POD is actually a 2nd batch started shortly after the 1st batch using B+ obtained from Ralph. I'm not sure how much to expect from a first flush of cakes but I'm very satisfied.

It's interesting that most of the growth is from one single spot on each cake. Almost all of these are growing as clusters sharing the same area of the cake.

The cakes that were from the 1st batch (left pod) must have been from badly isolated spores... I won't be ordering spores again from that particular vendor because of this reason, as well as the extremely long order processing times I've encountered. -- If I have to wait 1 month to receive a syringe I at least expect the quality to be there! Anyway.. slightly fewer mushrooms were harvested as this current batch however the stems were unusually hollow and not very bulky. Because of this the mushrooms when dried resembled tiny sticks that required a nice pile just to equal a gram.

Ralph's spores on the other hand produced "meaty" literally solid stems that retained quite a bit of bulk after they were dried! The quantity was also a bit greater. You've got some great spores Ralph!!!

I have been trying to think of something negatively constructive to say about my Hydra-Pod experience but I have been extremely happy. The most difficult part of the cultivation experience was making the BRF jars. ( I'm actually thinking about trying birdseed next.)

After the jars were incubated and birthed they were placed into the HydraPod and basically forgotten until time to harvest.. The Pod keeps the humidity high at all times and requires nothing more than the occasional check on water level and the single timer setting change when fruiting begins.

I did have a terrarium with perlite humidification sitting in another area to see how the cakes performed in comparison. After a few days of regular misting / fanning I decided it wasn't worth the trouble but continued anyway. Those cakes produced only 2-3 mushrooms each and the cakes started shrinking almost immediately. Not seeing anymore pins after a week I threw them out and permanently retired the terrarium setup.

Oh yeah.. The reason the cakes are dark on both the top and bottom is that a layer of vermiculite was placed at the bottom of the jar as well as on the top.

Question: Does anyone know if the mycelium will continue to colonize the substrate even after birthed? In other words, if my FOAF births a jar too soon, before the core of the cake has been fully colonized.. will the mycelium network continue to spread to this area during the fruiting phase?

Thanks,

thedm9
