roadkill hows your progress
    #504130 - 12/29/01 02:27 PM (22 years, 1 month ago)

i inoculated my jars on 12-5 and there is about 30-40% myc in all the jars. the temp is 70 F and i was wondering if i put the jars in a hot tub of water if itd speed things up a bit. roadkill, i know that you inoculated yours close to when i did mine, and was just wanting to chekc in on your progress

Well I suppose that you could find some place in your home that is normaly warm (upper 70's - 82 F. for most cubie strains) - Places like this might be found near a hot water heater, a furnace, mayby even on top of some models of refregrators (some fridges give off heat from the motor used to cool the inside). If your a teen concerned about the parents these placese might not seem praticle.

phrozendata - BTW: Thanks for that cool ass link for the incubator chamber.

well i think ill put them by the furnace is hopes of higherr temps although it doesnt seem very much hotter by that. i was also thinking that my jars looked a little dry and i thought i read that that might also be a reason for the slowness, i have no condensation on the jars either, and i have seen several on here with it, is that a possible concern

Temps are everything. I helped a buddy innoculate some jars on the 11th and we didn't see anything for 5 or 6 days then we found a place in the top of a closet next to the heater and it was about 82 degrees. The temp in the closet they came from was 68. When we warmed up the temps the jars colonized quickly. He birthed 4 yesterday and the rest will ready tommorow.

hi....Hairs

Sorry i have been busy alot with the family stuff.
Holidays and all......i hate the holidays....btw

I started my jars on the 15th of Dec.....they are doing so so.
I had a problem getting my temps up like you did.
They were at 72 degrees for a week or so.
The weather started getting cold here.
I have a furnace room.....so i went and stuck them in there.....and then redid my Mushroom Incubator.
At first i tried one that i saw somewhere in here....lol
It had a aquarium heater in water sitting in the bottom....then the jars sitting in water up to half way mark.
I thought maybe sticking them out of the water on a rack might be better....so i did that.
Plus i did some reading and found out that i might loosen the Jar lids for some air exchange....Thats what made the difference....As soon as i cracked the jars open a little and increased the temp to 84 to 86 degrees....They took off like mad the past 2 days.
So I am learning.... and that is what this is about for me.
I enjoy reading the boards and learning all I can.
I really enjoy reading Anno's posts.....he is a very smart guy.
And i am enjoying making new friends :)
Oh.....I started another batch yesterday.....now that my EQ's are looking better....I started some CAMs.
I'll post some pictures in a day or so.....I got a new digital camera for Christmas :)
So i'll update you in a day or so....Hope you are learning too.

Your Friend, Road

as mine are going slowly, i was thinking of ways to speed it up, on one jar i remove the tape covering the hole and put a cotton ball taped over the hole, and was considering blasting others with somemore spore juice, but im all out of b+, the other options are eq, pink buffalo, pesa,and aussie, could that possibly work?

I don't think you should add more spores now.
That probably would be a waste of spores.
I think you probably have enough....and you could use the other spores for your next batch...... I saw your post about mixing different types of spores.....One strain is going to probably take control....So why be wasteful....turn the heat up some how.....84 to 86 degrees.
Get a submersible aquarium heater....or some other heat source. This is a must!

Plus you might loosen the jar lids too.....When i loosened up my lids the mycellium started taking off like mad.

I think turning up the heat and getting some air exchange made all the difference in the world.

Plus all the reading i do here.....Everyone answers my questions if i look around....lol
Hairs i probably read the posts 3 to 4 hours a day.
When i get really stumped i ask a ?
The search has came in handy.....many times...lol

I'll be posting pictures sometime tonight or in the morning.

i untwisted the lids slightly(although i dont think this will do anything, because i have the 2 piece lids) and put them in a slighty warmer part of my house, but not before i added more spores to a jar. the jar now has some b+ as well as pink buffalo. does anyone know for sure that only one strain will come through, or is there a chance for a hyrid forming. thanks

My incubator set up.
As you can see I am using a submersible aquarium heater.

I have my jars in tubs....and have a rack between them.

A picture of my jars colonizing 2 days ago.

I will take a few pictures of todays progress.
I'm at about 80% colonization now.
I'm working in my furnace room right now.
I will hopefully have my lab room done in the next week or so.
It's great being single and owning your own place.:)

Josh thanks for showing me how to post pictures.
Your a great guy. :smile:

These are CAM's that i got from Ralph.
They are kickin ass!!!
I started these on the 29th of Dec.

Picture of the CAM jar from Ralph.
They are at about 60% colonization i think.

I'm having too much fun....lolz

Actually i am going to cake a few of each.
And i am going to case a bunch.
I've been reading all the teks.....lolz
I think i will have a talk with Anno and Ralph in the next few days and see what they suggest.
I might try a few different types of casings too.
Hell.....Kitzu has alot of room to mess around.

Enter,

once you speak to anno or ralph, lets hear what casing method you are using, im planing on the shroom wizards(soil and verm) or 50/50

I have not heard great things about shroom wizzards method of casing.Actually, I have read lots of bad things about it. A 50/50 casing is more reliable. Coir would also be an excellent choice.

I have read some stuff about the shroom wizards casing.... No thanks....I don't like his tek....I'll try 50/50 and i am thinking about a dung and straw tek. May try a the flat Tek too.
I will let you know in a few days what i am going to try.
I'm still reading.....lolz

Consider using coir. Anno posted a nice casing tek under my hay tray post. I am using 50/50 right now and looking for something better. Verm is getting a bad rap for possible asbestos presence. I also am having probs w/ trich, I think it is due to pH probs from the acidic peat. I would ask some pros like Anno or Workman.

Thanks Josh,

I have been watching your hay thread.
Very interesting stuff.....been watching it since day 1.

Yeah Anno and Workman are 2 that i like to watch what they are doing....they got mushy thumbs.
Hell... i read almost all the posts....alot of good peeps here.

I'm probably gonna try a few different things out.
That way i can see what works best for me.
I have 4 bags of Verm right now....lol
I had such a hard time finding it that when i did find some i went a little over board....lol
Perilite was a bitch to find in large quantity....but i got some today.....huge ass bag....4 square feet for $8 somethin.
I'll probably ask around and see what everyone suggests and try out a few different type of casings.

Are you gonna add some lime or chauk to try and balance out your ph problem ?
I have read where a few casing teks are messed up as far as how much lime to use.....that the amount is way too much.

So.....I'm gonna start craming for my exam....lol
I have about another week......so i'm reading up.
