MY FIRST GROW!!!!!! (PICS)
    #4033546 - 04/09/05 08:47 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Ok, here it is. My first grow attempt. Their B+ cased on peat and verm. Tell me what you guys think. They seem very small. The caps are only a little bigger than a quarter, but that could be because its the first flush right? Anyways I feel proud no matter how small they are! I DID IT!!!! YAAAAAAAAAYYYYY! :grin: :mushroom2: :grin:

Nice job, you did awesome.  Things that affect size are substrate depth, substrate content, strain, and conditions, but don't sweat it too much, those look really nice.  :thumbup: :mushroom2:

hehehehehe, I'm eating the aborts right now! wish me luck. by the way, when I picked the shrooms they left craters in my casing. Should I just leave it like this or do I need to do something?

Lightly patch the gouges and craters with new casing.

Have fun with those aborts  :mushroom2:

Very Nice!!!! Your first grow and you went with Casing and had sucess!! Thats awsome! Most newbie growers, like me, start with the PF-Tech in order to learn how mushroom growing works, Ive been doing the PF tech for the whole winter and I just tried my first casing apx. 1 week ago. Its still in the Incubator, I'm waiting for it to grow through the straw.
I have a couple of questions....

1. You said you cased with Vermiculite and peat, did you use a buffer (lime, calicum carbonate, etc.)? Was it a 50/50 mix? please give me some more info on the casing layer you made.

2. What did you use for the spawn, rye grain, popcorn, crumbled PF Cake etc?

3. What did you grow your spawn in? IE: Straw, straw with poo, etc.

4. Apx. how long did it take in the incubator until it was ready to case?

My first casing (which is still in the incubator apx. 7 days in), Is Cambodean spawn on rye grain, and just plain wheat straw (pasterized, of course) as the substrate. I pasturized the straw in a pot of water. The straw was inclosed in a pillow case and was never alowed to go higher than 175*. Then I took some dry VERM, which was in the oven at 350* for 1h, and put a thin layer on the bottom of an aluminum bread pan. Then I took apx. 1.5" of the straw and put that on top of the VERM. I then dumped apx. 1.5"-2" of spawn on top of the straw and then covered the spawn with a 1.5"-2" layer of more straw. I enclosed this all in a clean bread bag.
Just wonder if this will work, which is why I asked all of those questions about your casing.

Thanks
Shroom Man

Ok shroom man lets see if I can answer all that, LOL. #1 I cased with 50% verm and 50% peat moss and my buffer was egg shell chopped in a coffee grinder. The casing layer was about 1 inch. #2 I spawned with crumbled PF cakes. I'm not sure what you mean by #3, it was just brf cakes grown in half pint jars. I incubated for 2 days and if I waited any longer I would have run into overlay. Your casing appears fine to me but I'm sure you could use a second opinion if you really want to be sure, LOL.

I think Shroom_Man meant on #3 if you used straw or straw/poo in a bulk-type method.

hehe your jars are in the incubator right now Electric. I ended up doing 11 jars of Cambodian and set aside 6 for you. I think they should turn out pretty good. You need to read up on casings though so you can grow bulk. I think I will try my hand at straw and horse poo next time. That should be pretty good! I am going to set up another fruiting chamber and put it my closet with some lights set up. Do you guys have any suggestions for lighting a fruiting chamber? I heard a night light works pretty well.
