Newbie First Grow Pics with deep thanks
    #4308130 - 06/17/05 05:42 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I first tried growing shrooms 20 years ago using the MMGG and failed spectacularly. My deep thanks and appreciation to Prof. PF and the experienced growers on this site who made it possible for me finally to bring the magical fungi into my home. Special thanks to Roadkill for his h poo tek and many helpful comments made to many newbie posts, to Hippie Chick for her creative innovations and positive energy, and to Diver who helped me get over first-fruiting jitters with simple, clear, extremely helpful advice.

Pics are of the first flush of the PR strain grown in BRF PF 1/2 pt. jars then spawned in h poo and cased with 60/40 verm/coco. You can see temp and rh in one pic.

Nice job :thumbup:

Looks like those containers would only need a jar or two of spawn.

I used one jar in a large breadpan of h poo substrate filled about 3 inches deep. The casing is non-nutritive verm/coco plus a little oyster shell agricultural lime applied about 3/4 inch deep after the h poo was fully colonized.

Congratulations :thumbup: Good job. Feels good doesn't it?

You might want to watch your humidity, if your hygrometer is accurate. 98% is fine up to pinning, but after that, you might want to drop down to between 85%-92%. Now you can join me in that search for the perfect pinset. Some of those Scat pinsets. :thumbup: I'm only 5'2" and 105 pounds. I've got a tub going now that if I can get a "Scat" set, I'm gonna take a pic of me laying on it instead of a dozen eggs,lol.

Congratulations and Good Luck.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

You bet! Thank you.

You might want to watch your humidity, if your hygrometer is accurate. 98% is fine up to pinning, but after that, you might want to drop down to between 85%-92%.

I'm using Perlite in a plastic tub, and despite frequent air exchanges throughout the day, humidity stays pretty high.

Now you can join me in that search for the perfect pinset. Some of those Scat pinsets.

I'll be looking for those on the pans coming up. I've been taking extra pains to make substrate and casing depths uniform.

:thumbup: I'm only 5'2" and 105 pounds. I've got a tub going now that if I can get a "Scat" set, I'm gonna take a pic of me laying on it instead of a dozen eggs,lol.

I can hardly wait to see that one.



Congratulations and Good Luck.

You're the best HC. Thank you.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

You could do this, if you had a big enough tray with shrooms solid enough and evenly distributed your weight as you lay on it. I could put a good amount of pressure on a nice canopy...not all canopies are that tough..need the fresh air exchange for nice thick stems.

Are you using one coolmist per closet. I'm thinking about running two to each greenhouse on two different shelves. They are only $2 a piece. Want more fresh air in my greenhouses.
