My Popcorn Results
    #4444897 - 07/24/05 12:06 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Well I have had 2 failures and two successes with Popcorn. My first two failures were when I followed this tek http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/25049 that tells one to " Simmer for 45 ? 60 min stirring occasionally (about every 5-10 min, otherwise you might get burnt kernels on the bottom)" Well none of my jars colonized either time I used these directions.

Well the third try I followed my own instinct and I cooked the Popcorn for Two and a Half hours. I kept checking the kernels every half hour after the first 60 minutes. The way I did this is by mushing the kernels with my fingers and looking at the inside. For the longest time there was a really dry spot in the center it was white. This center I found did not get soft, fluffy and what I assume is "moist" until all the popcorn had burst.

The same day I made up jars of WBS the same way I have always. Well to make a long story short all the Popcorn was 100% colonized 5 or 6 days ahead of the WBS jars. This was the same for the second successful grow with Popcorn. the time it took to simmer the shit was the same as well.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

I have tried it twice, both times it turned to mush. I'm pleased with the last two results I had with Popcorn. I'm doing 12 Quarts of Popcorn rite now. I'm hoping that I will have a 3rd success. Its so cheap and colonizes great.

Its my new favorite grain to use as spawn. Still to try it as a substrate. Ive heard its less potent. Anyone find it to be?

It's less potent then poo because theirs fewer nutrients. Plus you can't case a spent cake to popcorn for the same reason.
Take care

IME potency is about like brf and yields also.
spawn it to poo.

having trouble w/ cc?
the trick is to stop simmering as soon as you see it slime, then rinse hell out of it.
this was my favorite spawn medium before i got a pc.

The point is....

Why use something less potent (nute wise)when you can use something that is jam packed?....

I do like to do popcorn , just b/c I like hot difference sub.s colonize...

Anyways, that's my point, really short point, lol, but that's it.

Holy shit...

LOL

It's been a long time since i've messed up and Damn, Lmfao, that was great.

My point was, Why use sub. that is packed w/ less nutes and then spawned to more nutes when you can have more nutes to spawn with.

Shit Nutes Spawned to Great Nutes = Some good nutes.

Great nutes Spawned to Great nutes = More nutes than shit nutes lol.

I'm sure that made more sense w/o having to go into anything to adv. for basic cult. :wink:

I have a guess that you cant over simmer Popcorn :hypno:
I have been cooking some for 4hrs and its all cracked open and looking like what Cracked Corn should be like. there is still a shell and the stuff just don't stick. But at the same time there is this soft part that is nutritious.
basically what I'm saying is,
I think the fungus would rather eat on the insides rather then the shell. So I think opening the shell and exposing the inside will get the best results with popcorn. Just think of it as nonstick cracked corn :thumbup:

I will post more results as soon as the jars are colonized.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!
