Check out this flush of Puerto Ricans! 6 lbs. wet. (Update! Trip Report)
    #4240762 - 05/31/05 06:02 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I used the Single Tub tek for this grow of PR. This was PR colonized WBS spawned to horse manure in a single large container. The substrate depth was 3 inches, cased with 50/50+. My average fruit is 12 inches long with caps ranging from 3-4 inches in diameter.

I began harvesting these and had to put them into a 19 qt. container just to hold them all. I zeroed the scale with an identical empty container and weighed them. These bad boys came in at 6 lbs or 96 ounces. I have dried some previous stems of these while I was printing some good ones and the stem has lost only 85% of it's weight.

This means that I should yield between 12-14 ounces dry when it's all said and done, maybe more.

Edit:
Okay, so I'm dreaming on the dry yield. 9-10 ounces is more likely.


I really wanted to show everyone that the single tub works and the monster yields it can produce. This is only the first flush, so there are more to come. Here are some pics:









Thanks for all the help fellows. I hope I can give back to the community as well.

Update 6/2/2005

I just weighed the first half of my shrooms. They've been going for over 24 hours now (started them at 9:30 AM yesterday) and I just pulled them out. The stems and caps are so dry that when I bend them, they disintegrate.

Here's what's left over to dry:



Here is the scale with a gallon Zip lock bag on to show the weight of the bag:


Here are the dried shrooms on the scale:


Here is the weight of the dried shrooms including the 1/8 ounce gallon Zip lock bag:


Final comparison of the bag size for you skeptics out there:


So the total weight of the first half of these shrooms is 5 1/8 ounce dry. That's after I deduct for the bag weight of 1/8 ounce.

What do you guys think so far? Thanks fellows.

Update 6/5/2005

The final weight came in at 9 ounces even. I zeroed the scale with 2 gallon size Zip lock bags and weighed. The scale reads in increments of 1/8 ounce and was fluctuating between 9-9 1/8. The photo I took happened to be at the 9 ounce mark.

Here you go:



All in all, I'm pretty with my first flush. The second flush is due to pin any day now, so we'll see what happens. I will be happy to pull a pound of out these when it's all said and done.

Update. Trip Report 06/10/2005

Okay I had a chance to try out my second bulk grow on this new strain of Puerto Ricans. Let me first qualify what I'm about to say by saying that I love the heavy trip. I enjoy visuals and mostly the way my body feels.

On to the trip report. I started last night by separating 5 grams. I ground up 3 grams for the first dose and 2 grams for the subsequent dose to follow 1-1 1/2 hours later. I heated up some 6 oz of water in the microwave, poured the ground up mushrooms in the water, stirred, and then placed into a tea cup with some Good Earth spice tea.

I started to feel the effects within 15-20 minutes. Within 30-45 minutes I was in full swing with some very nice visuals and a really awesome body high. What I particularly liked about this strain was the ease and subtleties of the trip. If I wanted to get up and walk around or go outside and smoke, I could maneuver fairly easily. Even with children around I could talk to them with ease.

Once you sit back down and relax after doing some form of activity the trip kicks back in and your back in wonderland. Basically the mushrooms allow you to feel semi-normal while having a discussion or doing some light activities, but come right back into play when you relax again. That is on the first dose.

Second dose was taken about 9 PM using the aforementioned method of ingestion. Within about 30 minutes, the second dose of 2 grams, began kicking in nicely. I sat down and started to watch Return of the King and was blown away by the heightened senses. The visuals in this movie seemed to come alive as I watched in awe.

Trails were in full swing and seemed to be present even moving at the slowest speeds. A nice wave of the hand from left to right seemed to last some 5 seconds before I lost sight. I especially enjoyed the head-rush I would get when picking up an object that appeared to move, such as a designer hand towel. My eyes could not focus on the object at fairly close distances so I would get a head-rush every time I touched the thing.

Overall I would have to grade the Puerto Rican strain as follows:

Mycelium growth in WBS 10 days= B
Spawn run 4 days= A+
Pinning 7 days= A
Fruit size= A++
Final dry weight 9 oz= A+
Drying time 36 hours= B
Ease of ingestion= A
Visuals= A+
Body high= A
Control= A
Peak= A++++
After effects= A (no headache or other fatigue)

Well you heard it here folks. Would you guys like to see a writeup on future strains? Any other items you would like me to grade?

Thanks fellows. My dehydrator can only hold about a quarter of these, so I'll take some more photos when I begin the drying. I've got some monsters in there, that's for sure. I think I may have one that's over 18 inches. I'll measure my biggest one and take a photo later tonight or tomorrow.

Dang lol. Do you get yields like that with other strains using that method? Or are PRs just a larger than usual strain? I have seen differences between strains that I have on an identical size container. Due to those differences, I am growing Orissa mostly now, but am always up for a prolific strain.

The differences between each strain in the same genus is very sligh..

I think the size of the container tremendously contributed to the size. I have some EQ going in another smaller double tub and I'm only getting 3+ ounces per flush after drying. The fruits are smaller.

The stems are definitely not hollow, so that's contributing to the weight as well. I'll post the dry weight when they're all done so you guys can see.

That is my first grow using the Single Tub tek, so I can't comment on other strains. I'll be knocking up some South Americans soon and using the same exact tub. I'll post those results in a few weeks hopefully.

Thanks Diver. I was really surprised when I weighed these bad boys. I think I'm really getting a knack for cultivating. :cool:

Thanks for all the comments people. I really do appreciate the feedback.

My fruiting chamber is 30" L X 19.5" W X 15.5" D. The total substrate depth is 3.5". Lately I've been tripping about every weekend, but not much more than that. I haven't tried the Puerto Ricans yet, but my EQ grown on the same horse manure kicked some serious ass.

I was pretty surprised by the weight and even more surprised by the retention of size after I dried a couple of them. Here is a pic of a stem I dried after I printed the cap.



This stem is cracker dry and still not much smaller than the original.

So how many quarts of spawn would you say that was? I kinda already PM'ed you about this, but did you follow a specific tek for this single tub or did you just put it together as an idea you had?
