(pics)of a foaf's first grow log
    #4586844 - 08/27/05 10:15 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

well a foaf is on his first attempted grow.It started off with a whole bunch of reading and asking everyone alot of questions,He was going to do rye but couldn't find it anywhere so he decided to go with wbs he stopped by Lowe's and picked of a bag of garden treasures WBS and then ordered 1 syringe from the little guy AMAZONIANs and they sent him a free syringe B+ had them in 3 days.He then took his wbs and filled his 12 pint jars about 3/4 full and added tap water to the jars and soaked for 16 hours,then simmered on a low heat for 30 min checking often to make sure the wbs where not popping open it ended up being about 35-40 of simmering,he then dump them all in a strainer and left them in there about 3 hours to drain then loaded them back into his jars.the wbs swelled up alot after the simmering so he had alot of left overs that he just tossed in the garbage o well,then he pced the jars for 90 mins at 15 psi,then left to cool over night,while they where cooling he took 6 mill plastic and wrapped his walk in closet with it and made a door with Velcro then cleaned it up with Lysol and alc,he also cleaned his whole room with bleach water mixed,walls and all the next day he shoot his jars up in his clean room he made, just wiping the needle with 70% alc before going to a new jar.He also ordered a mini green house and got a ultrasonic humidifier from wal-mart for 24 bucks
and picked up this from a yard sale for a buck
he also got a timer from big lots and set it at 15mins ever 2 hours for the ultrasonic humdifier to come on

well in about 11 days all my jars were done no contams in none of them.He had gotten some vermiculite from a local greenhouse and peat moss from wall mart

got some oyster shell from petco and cal.sand from petsmart he mixed 16 1/2 cups verm 16 1/2 cups peat moss 5 cups oyster shell 3 cups cal.sand and 14 cups distilled water he then pced that for 45 min @ 15psi.he then add a 1/2" of the 50/50+ mix to the bottom of his tray about 1" of the colonized wbs then about 1/2" of 50/50+ to the top trying to make it as even as he could the very next day it looked like this

so like a fool he put it in the fruiting chamber he should of let it go at least another day or two but any how he didn't,days flew by with nothing,even seemed like the myc stopped growing 10th day nothing 11 then 12 next thing he knew been like 16 days nothing.the 17th day when he looked in his greenhouse there it was his first little pin just 1 out of the 2 trays

man he sure was happy about this little pin....lol....anyhow it grow like wild fire.mean while the other tray started to pin as well lots of pins

the first pin that popped up after 4 days looked like this

if anyone has any question feel free to ask but this is his first grow so keep that in mind

I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."
