Very first harvest... Thanks Shroomery Friends!
    #3871575 - 03/05/05 04:00 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Just wanted to drop a quick thanks to all of our new friends at The Shroomery without whos' help and advice this would not have been possible.  A big thank you to the guys at The Hawkseye too.  Here are the fruits of our labor and love thus far...

We have harvested 4 PESA cakes, and got 202g wet.

The big mushroom (to the left of the zippo) weighed 20g alone! :grin:
How am I doing so far? :thumbup: :thumbdown:

Once again I'd like to thank everyone at The Shroomery for all of their help and advice.

Peace, Love, Happiness & Harmony

great first grow! isn't it great? i'm also on my first grow, i inoculated Feb. 28, 2005. Today i'm showing def. signs of mycelium. I am doing 8 1/2pint jars, 4 holes in the top, verm layer over substrate, tyvek under lid, band aid over each hole, and foil over the lid. I'm incubating them at 83 degrees (F), 65 percent RH, is there anything i need to change or should i keep on the same track?

anyways, i'm not trying to steal your show, just wanting my first attempt to go as smoothly as yours!

again, really nice, ENJOY!

For one thing, I might suggest that you take the band aids off of your holes to allow for some gas exchange. Although mycellium growth doesn't require much oxygen at the beginning and actually grows better in a high CO2 content in the beginning, as your cakes colonize, you will need to allow for some air exchange. Otherwise your colonizing will stall. The tyvek and aluminum foil should be plenty to keep your cakes free from contaminates. Sounds like you are doing everything else right.
When you birth them, I would definately dunk them 12 hours, and then roll them and double end case them. Good Luck!

If you have a PC. Next...try to find a source of h/poo. Do some WBS - spawn in quart jars & do a bulk h/poo tray & case it - if you feel confident. Resulting rewards are manyfold that of cakes. Single 124gram shroom

WOW AGAR! that's one beautiful shroom!!! thanks hippeiechick, the band-aids are coming of tomorrow, i've been thinking about taking them off anyway, but i had to ask for a 3rd party perspective. my friend who introduced me to the art of shroomery, or mycology, was talking about dunk and roll the other night and it sounded kinda complicated, delicate, and risky (contams).... or maybe he wasn't explaining it right, or maybe i wasn't listening well enough (guess that's what we get for trying to discuss serious matters over a phat smoke... lol) anyways, i'm not smoking now and you've got me curious, what is involved in a dunk and roll, and what is the purpose? i mean, i kinda know WHAT to do, but not really WHY. YOU KNOW? well, thanks for the help, and man oh man am i glad there is a shroomery.org for us to get this help!!!
thanks,
SHROOMpimp

nice flush, pretty good for cakes. you dunked them first? my jars have a lot of moisture building up on the walls of the jar. should i still dunk them?

how long did your fruiting take?

im new <3

gilbert. I would still reccomend dunking your cakes after birth, just to replenish any water lost during colonization. Since mushrooms are about 90% water, I think it's good to give your cakes as much water as possible before fruiting( some of the moisture you are seeing on the sides of your jars could be mycellium waste). My cakes were harvested 9 days after going in the fruiting chamber. Didn't do much for about the first 5 days. Good luck. Peace, Love, Happiness and Harmony. Hippie Chick

SHROOMpimp, the reason for dunk and roll is just another way of giving your cakes a source of water to help their fruiting. Since verm. is nutrient free, it really shouldn't hurt as far as contaminents go, I geuss thats why you put a layer on top of your cakes, it catchs any contaminents from reaching your nutrient rich cakes. The contaminents can't really get going without any nutrients. Check out the teks on dunking and rolling, I would recommend it. Peace, Love, Happiness and Harmony. Hippie Chick

Wow, you guys are kickin ass man, holy christ.

My friend anticipates about 10-15 grams dry from his few cakes, but when he's done with those beasts, im reccomending to him to case a few jars, see how that turns out. If I've done my homework correctly, I beleive we should have a good bit on our hands

"Mans unfailing capacity to beleive what he prefers to be true, rather than what evidence proves to be likely and possible, has always astounded me. We longe for a caring universe that will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary, we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest doubts. God hasnt been proven not to exist, therefore, he must exist!"
