My First Grow success (w/pics)
    #4441806 - 07/23/05 07:51 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Details
- P.C. Amazonian
- BRF PF Tek used
- Casing based on  hyphae's casing tek
- Casing was 60/40 coir/verm but was more like 50/50 (no buffer was added)
- hmm think thats it??
- oh wait used around 3 1/2 pint jars in the casing crumbled up.
- sub layer was around 1-1.5inch, casing layer bout 1inch after patching.


I incubated the casin for 2 days and already there was around 5% of myc pokin through so i lightly patched and placed into fruitin chamber. My PIMP sat around 22 degrees cel, 12-14hrs of light each day and fanned every 2 hrs if i was home, soemtimes went over 6-8 hrs without a fan, includin night times.

After 2 days the casin was already colinised far more than what i would of liked and i was getin concerned.



I was thinkin bout patchin but being my first casin i figured i would just leave it see how it goes and i would try for a better surface colinisation next time. This is what it looked like 7 days into the FC.



And the rest are just the pics to show how the grow continued.

8days in FC:


9days in FC:


10days in FC:


11days in FC:


12days in FC:


13days in FC:




So yer all in all i think it turned out pretty well for a first grow, dun think it will hold a full carton of eggs but im still wrapped :laugh:. Didnt have any contams along the way and everything went pretty much to how it was supposed too. I had trouble getin moisture to the casing due to the over colinisation of the myc but they still seemed to grow to an ok size. Im gunna take scats advice and give it a dunk once i harvest it tommrow, hopefully might get a few more off it in a 2nd flush if it dont contam.

I just cut some caps off to make some spore prints to send back to the FSRE to pay them back fro the original print. Big up the FSRE.



Also thanks to hyphae and scat and a big thanks to everyone else who has helped me get this far (u know who you are :wink: ) No way i could of done it without this site.

Damn dude, every time I see pics of flushes like yours I get more excited to see my first grow end up like that.  I'll definitely be looking at your grow log (if you have one). Nice work! :shocked:

cheers for the words :smile:

Nar i dont have a grow log, i assumed i wouldnt be all that successful to start so i didnt make one :P, on my next grow i might make a proper log.

But yer this was all done followin the PF Tek and readin quite a few threads on casings and thats all you need so it can be done for any first timers worried that its too hard. :thumbup:

Well i decided to harvest em tonite cos most of the caps were opened and i didnt want spores everywhere.
Got a wet weight of 238.9gms so should be a good 5 trips  :cool: :mushroom2:



Will post the dry weight in a couple days.

Well you can buy great pooh and 50/50 at tennstud.com, or if you need a slightly cheaper alternative, I have been on a rampage rounding up pooh. I have managed to talk a neighbor out of some of his horse/zebra pooh mix(yeah, the guy actually has zebras!) I would be glad to send some your way. Might need a couple bucks for shipping, or we could trade. let me know.
Beautiful first grow, hope mine looks half that good! :bow:

Well i ground it up into a very fine powder once it was dry and it weighted in at 19.4grams, so a bit less than 1:10 wet weight but still ok.
Ive placed the powder in a small plastic container with air tight lid and a few desiccants, will this be ok in there? I think i read soemwhere that air/moisture can still travel through plastic?

The casin was patched around the sides and lightly on top and misted down to near saturation, can see the myc just below the surface in a number of spots atm. Hopefully it comes through a puts out somewhat of a 2nd flush.

cheers
