2 colonized brf cakes. What now?
    #3901506 - 03/11/05 10:26 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

So here is a quick outline of my first experiment in growing. After spending many many hours on the shroomery i still managed to have problems. But when it comes to a hobby with as many ins and outs as this one every time you screw up you learn something. So, i believe, due to cross contamination from the cakes that i steamed instead of pced to the ones i pced many of my cakes became contamed with mean green. However, two made it. My goal for this grow is to for sure obtain some spore prints so i can do a large rye colonization. This being said i need to fruit these in the safest way possible. You know just whatever will give me the best chance of producing some at least a couple shrooms to print. The few options atm that lie before me are some sort of pod with just perlite in the bottom but no airstones or cakes in an aquarium with a drip shield. I know these are by far not the best options i have but due to the fact that i am going out of town soon these are the only options i have=/. 

And for someone who had problems with contams and stuff would u recommend dunking and rolling on this try?

I appreciate any responses, as i always do, that i receive from you guys. Thanks for getting me this far shroomery! :gd_icon:

If you are going out of town, you WILL need someone to fan the terrarium at least twice a day(assuming you use the rubbermaid/perlite method)

Remove your top layer of vermiculite(assuming you are using PF tek), fill with water and a cap of H202, put in frig overnight.

Remove cake, roll in dry vermiculite, spray liberally with H20/H202 (10:1 ratio) solution. 

Place in rubbermaid with perlite/H20.

Keep temp around mid 70's. 

Keep cakes in 12 hours of dark and light prior to pinning.

Once they pin, do 16 hours dark, 8 hours light.

Perlite should eliminate need for hand spraying, but you might still do it once in awhile and fan AT LEAST 2 times a day(preferrably fan every 4 hours if possible)

Grow mushrooms.

Dry mushrooms(or dont)

Eat mushrooms.

GL! :smile:

Im using lava rock instead of perlite, just because i think its gonna be cleaner/better in the long run for multiple grows. Do you have one of those 10 bux vicks cold vaporizer?
