how do my 1st attempt crops look to you?
    #4152242 - 05/09/05 02:48 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

So this was my first attempt at mushroom cultivation. I had 9 (out of 11) cakes successfully colonize and fruit from one 10mL spore syringe of B+. the cakes have been fruiting since about April 1st. this picture shows all of what I have so far. So I have 2 questions to ask of you veterans: Since I don?t have but a small analog scale, how much do you think this is (in grams or ounces)? And, Is this a pretty good yield of should I have seen better results?

Sorry but none will be able to give you an accurate wheight on your harvest, some may take guesses but thats all they're going to be. If thats only 2/3 of your harvest i think you did pretty good man.

So I went and edited the post. that actually isnt 2/3rdsin the picture. The left pile is 2/3rds (fully dried), the right is 1/3rd (partially dried), and the small pile at the bottom are aborts. And until minutes ago, I didn't ever think to try my dangly pocket scale. So I just did and looks like I am well over an ounce. So my revised question is: Is that pretty good for 9 cakes (still awaiting some 3rd flushes)?

thats not bad for a first try. Go to grains and casings, youd be surprise how easy they are.

thanks for the feedback. i think being a biology student has given me a little edge and i agree that it's time to step it up a bit.
