My new weight record
    #4071431 - 04/19/05 04:18 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hello

Im NOT (hehe EDIT :grin:)talking my own body weight, which also went up after a certain age.

But today I harvested an EQ mushroom which was 70 grams. (70,6 :wink: ) And thats a personal record!

It was grown on 98% straw (4th flush, or was it 3rd?) and a little horse poo which was left at that time. Also some verm was added.

I didnt dunk in between flushes. Will do that now.

Just wanted to share, it was so enjoying to see my own private monster developing! :laugh:

O, the cap was 4 inch wide, and shroomlength just below 10 inch! :laugh: My hand is bit more then 4 inch wide and 10 inch long.

MF

I say: Thank you! :laugh:

The biggest so far was an Orissa on straw and little poo, it was something in the 40's...

Actually these are getting too big, its is cool and such, but dosage is getting tough.. :P

I always felt 4 this strain, just good feeling. And I had some nice flushes from this straw casing too.

It seems though that bigger strains, EQ and OI, in my experience have higher water ratio.

My personal biggest is 63.4 so you beat me :smile: Thats a BEAST. I just tryed out some Eq...just spawned about 4 hpoo casings about 3 days ago, I've been hearing to much god stuff about this strain recently, I'm getting anxious :smile:

For me EQ has beaten B+, but circumstances where far from simular.

good lord thats one solid shroom. I could of sworn I've seen 40 gram shrooms that looked bigger than that shroom but I guess they weren't as solid.

My best so far is a 35gram Thai. But I have only been casing for 1 month hehe. This does bring up a question I have. I am aware of the rule of thumb that casing layer should be 1/4 of substrate depth. What exactly is the reason for this? i.e. what is the actual importance of the depth of casing layer, such as benefits from perfect depth, and consequences of less than perfect depth? I would really appreciate a detailed answer if anyone is willing to give me one lol.

I had mushrooms in the 40-s but they where, ofcourse, smaller and less solid.

Yes RK, you old bragger you :grin:, every time you come with that monsterstory when I am posting about my OI or now EQ! :laugh:

But funny that you mentioned cause I was thinking of it today, what would the weight of that monster have been? And now I know. :wink:

I was thinking about twice as much and a bit, and that seems about correct.

I harvested shortly after veilbreak, the cap didnt spread out 100% maybe it would have got close to 5 inch wide then, but hey, I was not in a contest but very amazed, proud, happy and satisfied with the result. :laugh:

The substrate is about 3-3,5 inch deep.

What is your experience, my OI and EQ lose more then 90% of water in the drying process!

Thanks! :thumbup:

MF

Heey dont hack my thread! :chainsaw:

:grin:

I can think of a number of reasons:
- longer colonisation time (longer time for trouble to develop)
- no nutes in the casing layer maybe if it is too thick that is a problem?

I suggest to ask in a separate thread, so it gets more attention. I dont really know....

This EQ is my, ehmm lemme think, 4th casing. The former record was from Orissa.

I did not count a B+ project in which I rescued and cased in several small jars.

So far the straw got me good results. It just keeps on flushing without contams. The OI got 5 or 6 flushes then I decided to toss it in the garden. Biggest fruits there were in the 1st flush though.

Ok so far! :thumbup:

Hehe, sorry didnt mean to hijack your thread. The only reason I brought it up, is because I had 10 of those 40 grammers off one casing hehe, but my casing layer is roughly 1/2 inch on a 4inch substrate. That was as high as I could make my casing layer, it was my first try so I sorta overestimated the substrate depth. I think that OIs or Taz could produce larger fruits thought, and I wanted a little info before they get to casing stage.

What was the strain you grew? OI is the record holder, as Roadkills exempel shows.
I believe Mushroom John grew even a larger OI. What a monsters, more then half a meter tall! :shocked:

I am not trying to grow as big as possible, then I would have used deeper and different sub.

MF

PS: did you get your casing layer question answered by anyone?

Dry weight of that mushroom is 5 grams exact. 70 grams wet.

So watercontent was 92,9%....

I often find that most of my mushrooms have higher watercontent then the 90% what is often said.

Especially the larger ones, OI and in this case, EQ.
