Grow Log of a First Timer (Fictional of Course)
    #4617256 - 09/03/05 09:18 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

The following is an account (completely fictitious) of a first time cultivator, complete with pictures to help illustrate the story.

The story begins on July 30th, inoculation day. Out of a batch of BRF jars a lucky friend of a friend received one jar of Treasure Coast and one jar of B+. 14 days after inoculation the jars were checked and signs of growth were showing. The following pictures were taken 21 days after inoculation.


The outside of the Treasure Coast jar was 100% colonized 27 days after inoculation. The jar was dunked two days later (to allow the inside to become fully colonized) for about 15 hours. It was initially birthed into a makeshift fuiting chamber made out of a 50 CD-r spindle and a gallon ziplock bag with the bottom cut off and rubberbanded to it. Perlite was placed in the bottom to maintain humidity and manual fanning was done 3 to 7 times per day.

The following pic was taken 4 days after birthing:


The next day:


Late on this same day the cake was moved to a different terrarium made out of a plastic container with perlite in the bottom. The reason was the mushrooms needed more room to grow. The new set-up looks like this (6 days after birthing):


Pictures of 6th day after birthing:


This is where the story leaves off... for now. Hopefully it will be continued when new parts are written.

... the story continues (and if this should be moved, please do it so a new post doesn't have to be made.)

Early yesterday morning, when the babies were checked the larger capped mushroom's veil was completely torn off:

This cap was used for a print:

Wet weight of 2 shrooms minus 1 cap:

The mushrooms have been fan drying with the printed cap being added today:

Print:


The shroomies will be moved to a desicating chamber and stored until enough has been collected to trip. The story will end with a trip report, and this post will be updated whenever this is possible.

I plan to eventually write a more complete short story (including other activities for the main character), and was just wondering if the above account seems plausible enough to sound realistic to someone reading the story (probably people who haven't grown shrooms ever?) Thanks for any advice, and again if this should be moved please do.
