1st Flush of EQ Cake..."a little wierd"
    #3933777 - 03/18/05 04:17 AM (12 years, 15 days ago)

Here is a pic of one of my EQ cakes (first flush). It seems that these shrooms are growing a little wierd, not like other EQ i've seen around here. Mine are short and stubby with little dots on the caps. What do you suppose all this is attributed to?

can't really see it on this pic but there are a couple tiny shrooms on the other side that are completely enveloped in that grey shit

Here's an update pic of this EQ cake. The fat asses grew well...the veil has broken on the main/biggest shroom.



As you can see this shroom has grown in a cluster with a few other that aren't quite developed as much. Should I pick the main shroom off by itself, pick the whole thing, or wait and not pick anything until all have fully matured?

Was also gonna try my hand at making a print. Should i take a cap off before or after the veil has broken?

If I were you I'd wait till they all were matured to get the most out of your cake. You could try to just pick it and only would have to scrifice 2 or 3 more caps.

wait until just after it breaks or just as it starts to peel a bit and the when you cut it rip the rest off manually.

Never heard of waterlogged in my life; you can't get too much moisture in a pf cake (they grow fat and short when there isn't optimum AE).

Another Q regarding the print....I see a nice cap that is begining to lose its veil but is connected to this cluster. Can I remove only the cap and keep the stem connected to the rest of the cluster with out any damage to the others?

If you are careful, you can.

Btw, those don't look like Ecuadors. They look more like Cambodians, but I am kinda fucked up on Loratab and dank, so I may be wrong. Where did you get the spores?

After a second glance at your babies, I have decided that they do look Ecuadorian. Here is a pic of some Eqs that I grew last year. :smile:

Them later on and ready for picking. These were my second grow.

No! the stem will rott and ruin your cake for future flushes. If you want to, (and this is what I would do) carfully twist and pull the big shroom (you grab it from the base then twist), if your lucky the cluster will stay and the big shroom will seperate. I usually do this and sometimes the cluster comes with it and somtimes I can get them to stay, however, after the veil has broken I remove the shroom right away, (even if it means getting a whole cluster of smaller ones with it), because, if I just left it, the spores would drop all over the cake, rendering it useless.

I am new to this hobby as well but I almost got the PF-Tech down pat, and I have only been doing this for apx. 4 months, its simple! I have now started dunking my cakes (works so good for getting more pins on the next flush). Just yesterday, I tried my first "Dunk & Roll", I can't wait to see the pin set now.
AE= Air Exchange I belive. Are you using a fish pump? because if your not the the cover of your fruting chamber should be removed and the cakes should be fanned at least once a day, but try to aim for three times a day, it will work better.


--------------------
I have now aquired 5 differen't P. Cubensis varities.

--Cambodean-- (vendor checked out and is well knowen by many here and at other fourms)

--Mexi-Cub-- (Again Vendor is well knowen)
--Thiland Pink Bufflo-- (vendor is well knowen)
--Hawiian Strain
--Origional PF-tech strain

My friend never got any fatasses of EQ off straight WBS or Straw/Manure.
Here is Eq straw/manure (2in) - 30g dry.


Good job! Sorry not trying to hijack or anything!

wow, that's a nice lookin' batch! I'm gonna have to investigate straw/manure one of these days...seems like the way to go...using premade jars here, think they are PF style. Does the nute content usually determine if they are fatasses or not? My other EQ cake starting to form looks like it's gonna produce some hella stuby shrooms.
