My First Grow PIC
    #4510328 - 08/08/05 02:08 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

This my first grow and first harvest using the PF tek no cakes there grown by casing potting soil, oyster shell, and verm mixed. The spores I used were wild cubensis from Central Florida. Why did the turn out so small?


:laugh:

Most strains used by people have been domesticated to grow large fruits on the substrates commonly used. The size of your fruits are probably due to the fact that they were straight from the wild.

In fact, I'm impressed you got such a flush from a wild print. :thumbup:

Those look healthy. Size depends on substrate depth, so eat those and think about how you want to improve your next operation.

It probably had alot to do with a thin substrate made of cakes..thats about the worst substrate you can use. Upgrade, and make the substrate thicker if you want bigger shrooms. I was under the impression, from everything I've viewed, that wild shrooms tend to get bigger, but yields are less, and that is what they were breed for...but I've never grown any shrooms from wild prints..
