Close to birth, what should I do???
    #3947842 - 03/21/05 09:34 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Check this out:


This is the best cup out of 4 I inoculated in 03/03, used 1/4 BRF, 1/2 verm and around 70ccs of water.
They where kept in a B.O.D. incubator at 27,2*C. Spores where aquired from the wild.
Out of the four, 2 contaminated, one is about 50% and there is this one, something around 80% colonized (missing mostly the bottom of the cup, I already turned them upside down in hope that this will help it finish). So in a few days it will be ready.
Now my question is this:
Should I just keep on with the cake and do regular PF tek, or should I crumble it and try to case it for a bulk grow on a tray? What are the odds that I will f*** it up if I try to case it? This is my first grow and I'd like to have a decent amount of shrooms.

Also, another thought that was ocurring to me was, to scrape off the contams from the other jars (they are not very badly contamed, about 10% of the total) and use the non contamed verm to do a bulk tray grow. Here is a pic of the contam (it's around the size of a quarter, maybe a little bigger):


I hope my explanations were clear. Any comments are well appreciated.

Have to agree with Cray on this. If you have already lost 2 of 4 jars to contams, and you want to get some shrooms, you may want to birth your cakes and fruit them without casing this time and gain a little more experience. BTW, you are more than a few days from birthing those. You really need to wait about 4 days after the outside is fully colonized to birth. This assures the inside of your cake will be colonized also. NO, I would not recommend doing anything with that contaminated cake but disposing of it.Good Luck.

That's kind of a big spot of mold, please don't try and do anything with it. Just pitch the jar and start fresh again.

Is it just me, or do those jars look a little moist?

Wait about a week longer, i know you want to get shrooms fast, but its for the best. You need to make sure that your entire jar is colonized. You know what I do when I get impatient? I make more jars!

Should I just keep on with the cake and do regular PF tek
Yes

This is my first grow and I'd like to have a decent amount of shrooms.
Then you really should have picked another method to start, or did more cakes. A single cakes only gonna yeild you a couple of grams per flush most likly.

Also, another thought that was ocurring to me was, to scrape off the contams from the other jars
Remove the thought from your head and toss them.
