Is 49 days long enough to grow mushrooms?
    #4365118 - 07/03/05 02:55 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I will have to order spores online most likely, buy all necessary equipment, and start from scratch. Is 49 days long enough to grow psilocybes? I am moving after August 20th.

So I read some of your posts... since your asking a newb question and you have over 3000 posts...

49 days is plenty. You will need to start reading. I would really suggest that you do some bulgur wheat casings.
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...rue#Post4223655

Make up some casings with 2quarts each of that recipe. You won't be needing anywhere near 7grams dry. Ha. 7grams of Bulgur Shrooms will certainly show you what REAL shrooms can do!

Feel free to PM if you have any questions.

Good luck.

Just wait dude...49 days may be enough to grow "some mushrooms" but it would definately not be an efficient grow.

The following timeline is if everything goes smoothly....

Purchase and arrival of spores:
3-5 days

Preparation and inoculation of substrate:
1 day

Complete colonization of substrate:
With TiT Incubator /Cakes: 4-7 days
Without/ Cakes: 7-21 days
With TiT Incubator/Casing: 4-7days(Cakes)+1-3days(spawned casing)
Without/Casings: 7-21 days(cakes)+ 2-4 days (spawned casing)
(THIS ASSUMES THE CRUBLE & CASE METHOD)

Fruiting in chosen Grow Chamber:
PF style w/ ultrasonic: 4-9 days= pins
PMP: 3-6 days= pins

Pins-Full Grown:
2-3 days

So thats, 45 days without the TiT, just for the 1st flush. Then you have to cash the rest of your casing/cakes without benefiting from the next few flushes. You would essentially be wasting spore syringe and substrate material.

This is ONLY an estimate based on my experience, which has been limited in comparison to some others on this forum. If you do attempt I think you should invest time and $$$ in the TiT incubator as it would greatly increase your chances of success! THIS IS ALL ASSUMING GOOD STERILE TECHNIQUE ALSO. Goodluck, and hope this helped.

I'm a virgin to this stuff still. I'm only 20, I live on campus at college. The FD comes thru there once a year so I'm too scared to grow. Plus, my parents show up every once in a blue moon. I had plans to grow back in high school but I didn't trust the person whose house I would have used.

DEFINATELY wait until you move. As you will see as you search the posts...Don't grow if your landlord/roommates(or in your case colleges) doesn't know you are doing it! It really isn't worth it. I think you should use the 49 days available to research/consult other growers/compare prices of supplies and prepare a plan. That way your first grow in your new place will be very "fruitful" and go more smoothly. But do as you wish. Goodluck and I'd be happy to pass on any knowlege you need.

Yea dude. I am in the beginning of a rotating grow, which means I am doing every step every day. My first casings are just pinning. I skipped the PF method. I bought all the wrong things at the wrong times. Man, everything would have gone much smoother if I carved the tek I was gonna use in stone, including substrate, spores, ect. For instance. I have not even had one harvest yet and I have went from BRF jars to birdseed bags, to corn jars, and now to wbs jars because I dont have the money to get bags now (by the way those birdseed bags I got colonise so damn fast). If I had just waited, saved the cash to buy a set amount of thermometers,spores, substrate, casing material, ect. to do a certain amount of growing, you know made my own recipe for one big cake, everything would not be so hecktic now.
