SHROOMpimp's 1st Growlog *UPDATED W/ PIX* EQ's
    #3912863 - 03/13/05 08:41 PM (12 years, 19 days ago)

OK, here's my 1st Grow-Log, I'm SHROOMpimp and I'm fairly new to this board, but I've reading posts since back in the day, just never made a user name and posted anything. Well, I've started this thread to show my progress on my very 1st grow. It's a simple 2+1+1 BRF(Brown Rice Flour) & Vermiculite Cake. I will be updating with pix soon!



3/1/05-12:00PM
Prepared substrate jars via SHROOMpimp's Cake TEK in 8 1/2 pint jars. I PC'd them for 70 minutes. After taking them out of the PC I place them in my closet where i have some shelves to set the jars on, a thermometer, and a heater with thermostat. I let them cool over night.

3/2/05-4:30PM
Inoculated all jars with 1-2cc's of a select print from previous grows of EQ. Placed them back in the closet on the shelf. Made sure ambient temp was 81?(f). I usually leave them alone for several days so they can get started before i look at them.

3/4/05-9:00AM
Oops! OK, i have to be honest. On my very last jar (last hole on the last jar) while inoculating i ran out of liquid in my syringe, i looked in the end of the needle and i could literally see TONS of spores between the plunger and beginning of the needle. So, i do some quick thinking and run to the kitchen grab a full bottle of distilled water and stick the syringe through the plastic and draw up about 1cc of water (UNSTERILIZED) and i ran back to my jar. I heated the needle and sterilized it. I then put the 1cc of water/spores in the last hole of the last jar. I marked that jar in case something stupid happens to it i would know it was clearly my fault. Well, needless to say, i check on the jars today and i got a big fat spot of black mold in that very jar. Well, i guess that's what i get for being dumb, I've learned my lesson here. USE ONLY STERILIZED WATER FOR YOUR SYRINGES!!!!!!!!! This is the only contam I've ever had. And i knew it was a contam right from the second i saw it. I just grabbed the jar, went outside and threw it in the trash. Anyways, i figured you guys could maybe benefit from my mistakes.

3/6/05-3:00PM
WOW! That's some quick moving mycelium! These jars are colonizing fast. I used 4 holes in the lid of some jars, and 5 holes in the others. I believe i did 4 of each.I started w/ 8 jars, lost 1 to contams, and i just now gave 1 to a friend who seems very intrigued by the hobby. Anyways, i can see where each injection site is colonizing. Check on it again in a few days.

3/10/05-1:30PM
Not too much longer and they'll be fully colonized. I'd say they are about 50-60%right now and growing fast. I am seeing some very rhyzomorphic growth in there. All jars are showing very strong growth. I'm borrowing a camera from a friend today so i am going to update with pix in just a little while.

3/13/05-7:15
OK, my friend took some pix and didn't have the cable to upload them to my PC, nor the disk that came with it. He said he's going to bring it over tonight or tomorrow. I will update as soon as i get pix. Anyways, about my jars, they're doing really good, some are about 50%--60% and some 70-80%. rhyzomorphic strands everywhere! i love this hobby.... any questions, comments, ideas, or advice would be very much appreciated!!! thanx!

If you had put spores in all 3 holes, then the last one shouldn't have been a big deal...:(

And it's been 12 days and they're halfway done? These are Pf jars right? Hmmm...Good shit :thumbup:
My Pf's took like 3weeks...My grains took about 10-12 days lol, but then again almost all em contamed haha.
Pf's are so much easier :thumbup:

yes, i know, i could have left that one with just 3 injected holes, don't really know what i was thinking... but oh well, live and learn. yeah, my friend (TRIPpimp) and my good friend the mentor came over and said that i was doing very well. it was a good boost of confidence! I'll update the pix tomorrow, but they'll be from 4 days before, but I'll also include new pix as well. Thanx for the support everyone!

OK, i have the pix of my jars. They're doing great! But, how do i post them on here? also do i have to size them or does this website size them for me? the pix turned out good, it's just that they are from a few days ago, i'm taking the updated pix right now.

Moderators-Is there any way i can update the subject of this post to add updated w/ PIX? or something to let you know there's some pix on here? Thanx!

Inoculated another jar w/ different cake recipe. same EQ strain. it's the jar in the middle of the circle that's upside down. Post pix in just a second. file was too big for shroomery upload. the two pix that are on a black plastic background were taken today 3/14/05. i think that in a few of days these little guys will be ready to birth. I plan on dunking, rolling, and double-end casing. also I'm thinking about doing the drinking straw tek... anyone have experience with this? and has anyone ever used coffee water to mix as the water in the recipe for the BRF cakes? or has anyone soaked the verm. that you roll with in coffee water? i like what I've seen and heard about coffee experiments w/ shrooms... i just want to know more people that have messed with it. I'll post the pix in just a second. thanx.

these pix are from yesterday, i didn't have a chance to put them on last night, well they were taken about 16 hours ago really. today they are all colonized down to the bottom. i flipped them over this morning to help the bottom colonize faster. some have wrapped from the sides down and around the bottom. i'd say 3-4 days and these guys are going to get dunked.

anyways, sorry it's a crappy pic, but it's the newest one. i would have taken close ups but the camera ran out of juice.

I'll update more later.

3/18/05
Today, i opened up my closet and checked these jars, and MAN! they are growing BRIGHT WHITE! and super healthy looking! HUGE rhyzo strands reaching everywhere!!! looks like shroom roots trying to take over the jar, lol.. but there is some moisture on the walls of the jar, but seems to be put there by the myc.?? not sure, because the jars weren't THAT moist when i PC'd them, and they haven't been all moist on the walls till the last couple of days. like it's been building up... is this myc. piss? or so they call it. i have a question to some of the exp. growers out there. has anyone tried dunking with a coffee/water mix trying out the caffine to shroom experiments? I'm thinking of trying this w/ 1 or 2 cakes, also I'm thinking of soaking the verm. that I'll roll the cakes in, in coffee/water mix, then nuke it. what's every ones thoughts on this? could i put like 1/15th parts h.peroxide in the mix? well, the camera i have won't take pix of the rhyzo. strands or I'd post some, i guess i could post more jar pix, but that's kinda boring. unless ya'll want them. otherwise, I'm just going to post when i dunk/cold shock. does anyone have a good idea for what to use to dunk 6/ 1pint cakes? and what to put on them to keep them under water? or do they sink? oh well, let me know what you think on the coffee ideas please. i like to experiment but i need input!! I'll update soon as i dunk!

till then

Looking good.

I loved Vanilla Sky, excellent movie and going and seeing it (with who I did) was one of the best memories I have :smile:

Keep up the good work!
