1st attempt at grains- What do you think?
    #3872285 - 03/05/05 10:54 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Here is a picture of my first grow using whole grain brown rice. The cake on the right has just been harvested, and has produced 150g of Golden Teachers. 30 shrooms in total  :grin:



I'm going to leave the one on the left to mature for another day.

Hey lurker, nice job :laugh:

Whole grain brown rice is just about the best fruiting substrate out there.  Too bad more people don't work with it, I wish I had the time to. :mushroom2: :thumbup:

Not only in the abundance and size of your fruits, you will also notice a huge difference in "goodies".

5 mushies for a job well done.

Indeed, whole grain brown rice fruits throw out some potent mushrooms.

More people need to do whole grain  :heart:

That's a bonus! I didn't know that, my choice to use whole grain was based on it simplicity over the PF Tek.
My Tek was loosely based on 9er's

I did have an inkling that the mushrooms might be strong though, as when I lightly cleaned the vermiculite from the top of the cake before dunking in spring water for 24 hrs, it went a deep blue colour.

Lots of folks argue whether triptophan in the spawn/substrate makes a difference, but my experience is that rye grass seed produces the most potent mushies, and by the last chart I saw(posted here somewhere) rye grass seed was very high in triptophan. I've never used whole brown rice so don't know. I would be curious to see if it's also high in triptophan.

By the way...Awesome job on your first grow. You've obviously been reading and doing your homework. My first grow was all green...lol

Here's the cake on the left:


There's about 35 shrooms in total and they weigh in at 142g


That's 10.3 oz from two cakes.

THANKS TO ALL AT THE SHROOMERY

More like 1 ounce. Its usually less then 10%..8-9ish.

I dont think he would have gotten the same results had he used BRF, not dunk and rolled, and not done EVERYTHING, EXACTLY how he did it. Thats why you follow teks exactly when someone gets results. If you do, you can get the same results...otherwise, results will vary. Alot.
