Strain for EZ fruiting that need no temp drop? Outdoor strains?
    #4735416 - 09/30/05 08:59 AM (12 years, 20 days ago)

I know a lot of new growers ask "what is a good strain to start with?" I seem to be able to get any strain to start growing, fruiting is the problem. In fact, I can get giant bags of grain full of spawn by transferring a half pint jar to the bag and then crumbling the whole thing. 100% on that.

Is there a particular shroom that will fruit without temp drops and doesn't care about humidity so much?

And of course, is there one that likes the outdoors more than others?

Here is my sorry tub of spawn that eventually gave me a couple ounces and then turned brown (bacteria I presume) The arrows point at lumps that grew, but never turned into fruit. What are those and could they be edible?

If that is your spawn, you should put a casing layer on it. That is why you are having problems with your humidity. The casing layer will help raise your humidity and keep it stable.

Actually that tub was cased, the myc ripped right through it. There was too much humidity, not too little; no water added. I had put a bag of spawn into a straw/poo mix and it grew like crazy. Tried to copy CrazyChemist's growlog, but I'm no Chemist apparently. Reading posts leads me to believe there was too little airflow. I will use an aquarium pump and add only air on my other tubs. Then I can just mist when needed, which won't be often. If I ever become successful I will post what I believe is an easy way to triple or 4x your spawn in a hurry.

Try some polyfill stuffed holes close to the casing level to allow C02 to expell.

The South American strain will fruit good without a temp drop...and will grow in high temps.

Humidity is important...without it your substrate will dry out.

The "A" strain is a great outdoor strain.

most strain will fruit without a temp change, but not all of them. when i started out doing cakes the golden teacher,south american, cambodian, african, and mexican strains all fruited in the jars without a temp drop. just yesterday i went to go do a pesa bin and the jar of grains had already started to fruit.

Once again I find good info after I post a question. Here is a previous post that has good info. I didn't see the A Strain offered by the Shroomery vendors, rare?

I personally like this strain for versatility.

Very nice Foo-
I read that MexiCube fruits well in cold. My problem is too warm of a growing area. I need fruits without a temp drop. I also need to improve my fruiting chamber, another story, but a shroom that fruits most easily will help. I am leaning towards the A Strain for outdoors based on Roadkill's recommendation, but it looks like the Thai strains are fairly aggresive and fruit no problem (?)

Where did you read that? I'm in sunny South Florida and my Mexi Cubs do fine outdoors in 90+ degree heat, with very little temperature drop at night.

Thai Koh Samui is a good one too :thumbup:

I haven't tried it outdoors though.

I read about MexiCubs in Ralphsters descriptions,
"Another nice key feature about this cubensis, as that it fruits well in cooler temps of 50F, but also grows like all other cubensis at the higher temps of 75F-85F. "
It probably does well for you because you know what you are doing-also because it is a cube and we know a cube.... As for me, I seem to be an idiot at the fruiting process. That's why I'm asking about strains that hardly fail to fruit.
This post kinda makes me sound like an ass - actually I'm being genuine. I will PM you about your setup. Thanks!

The setup I have been using indoors is a double tub. For an outdoor bed, I just mix about a 70/30 percent mix poo/verm. I dig a hole, put the poo/verm/crumbled cakes in and wet it down good. Keep it fairly moist if there is no rain and wait.

Oh, it needs to be in a somewhat shady location of course.
