colonization observation!
    #4499002 - 08/05/05 08:49 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

for those of you who are always like "omgz, what is the best type of shroom!?" I dont have a definative answer, but I do have an observation. Ive been working with three different types of cubensis. Amazonian, Cambodian and B+. I must say out of all of these Amazonian seems to be by far the fastest colonizer. Ive done grows with these mushrooms twice now and within a week to 14 days the amazonian jars or casings are always fully colonized, with the others taking a week or so more.

Now, ive got my suspicions about B+ though since the syringes I got from Sporeworks had very little visible spores and a lot of the B+ jars i inoculated never grew and those who did i had to wait for a single spot that took to colonize the whole jar.

Anyways just wanted to share my observation. :dancing:

Amazonian is great. Very fast/strong colonizer.You should try Thailand Koh Samui Super Strain, it has always "won" the colonizing race with me.

Thremix<<roommate & I are wanting to try Brazilian, I was told it was very fast.could be a good race.

I'm having the very same problem with my b+ and I got my syrenge from a different vender. My koh samui ss is kickin the b+ ass at colonization. I'm thinking about taking three of my shitty b+ and cutting out the myc to make a small casing, I don't know if that's a good idea though. But patience is something I lack.

Johnson, is this your first grow? If it is I would suggest you just wait for 100% colonization. If I Had to guess if you would fail or succeed, I would go with fail. Just wait. You can pass the time by making LC and trying it out on new jars. You will see how fast the new jars will "catch up" and might even beat the old jars. As for the B+ thing, a couple of friends and my self have this same thing. One spot has to colonize the whole cake.

You can get a small pressure cooker at wall mart for $17.00 you can do 4 jars in it. It's great to have around to sterilize any thing with. If I were you (for now) I would stay away from G2G, Shoot for LC, I would best describe LC as Rocket fuel for mushrooms. You can have a fully colonized jar in 10 days or less.

I was looking at that same pc at wal-mart. I thought since it was aluminum it might not be good for me cause I'm accident prone. I don't know how often this happens but I heard about a guy that blew his up and fucked him all to hell.
