1 Myco + Ecuadorean = 147g wet - REPORT
    #566929 - 03/01/02 03:15 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

We tried the Mazatapecs a couple weekends ago. It was fun with a lot of laughing - all over body buzz, no visual disturbances. Dose was 3 grams dried. I'm a novice, so someone tell me if my dose is low.

5 bags of Ecuadoreans. Put syringe in on 1/28. Today, 3/1, harvested the first bag. All 5 had mycelium, but all grew differently. 4 have mushrooms, 1 has just mycelium. Re-taped first bag for additional flushes.

Bag 1 report: 147 grams wet weight. Here are the photos.

Kick ass! Your gardening skills seem to be working for you.

This is the batch that had one bag out of 5 with a small amount of mold in it. How did that turn out, is it possilby the nonfruiting one?

Also an update on the Maz bags would be cool too, how many flushes, etc.

Its up to you, but you might consider harvesting a bit earlier before they open up and get all sporey for a better quality product. Keep up the good work and post often.

3 dry grams is pretty standard, but cubensis potency can vary a lot and so can personal tolerances.

Any plans to move beyond the myco-bag experience? You don't want to be a newbie forever, do you?

Workman,

You're the best. I'm always hoping you'll reply to my posts!

I had read to wait until the bottom of the mushroom's veil opened before harvesting. What determines quality?

Yes, the one that had green early on is the only one that's not fruiting.

I only had one Mazatapec bag and it did have a second flush, but I was over-crowded with the Edcuadoreans so I harvested the second flush and then threw it away. I think it would have done another flush without difficulty, but I had no more space.

And yes, that was going to be my next post. Where do I move from here. What should I read. I'm thinking of doing some kind of home-made terrarium so I have more space to grow larger single batches, so to speak. I have access to vermiculite which was very hard to find - perhaps I'm not looking in the right places. Going to go with a grain based growing medium. From what I've read, that seems to produce the strongest mushrooms, but I'll experiment too. I'll be getting busy with the outdoor garden too - crocuses and tulips are blooming now and i have a few little Somniferum seedlings coming up as well. I harvested raw opium last year. ;-) Gardening can be a lot of fun and very rewarding.

Workman, I would start touting these bags as the perfect growing alternative for those that have-- little space, no time, live in a dorm or with others, and also newbies. Not just newbies would find these bags extremely accomodating.

I harvested bag 2 today. Another 147 grams wet weight.





And Bag 3 had 7 mushrooms that were ready and 7 baby mushrooms, so I left them in there to grow some more. I took out 92 grams wet weight.





Everything's under a fan drying.

Wow! Nice shrooms there, buddy! How many days past maturity did you let those shrooms go? Those look pretty damned fat, did you add something to the original substrate?

As far as the 3g thing, one time I ate an eighth and to me it wasn't that visual. Probably cuz I was tokin out of my bubbler the whole time but ohh well...

I am about to attempt the fruiting of some equadorians "in the bag" for the first time, I hope my results are as lucrative as yours.

Ralph,

I'm not as experienced as you are, so have some patience. What is an FSR? The myco bags were good for me because, 1. I'm a novice and this is only the second time I've grown mushrooms. The bags have worked well, so while I get some experience growing, I also have some success too. 2. Money. I'm rich. I have a million dollars in the bank. I'm a 30 something who worked hard and am only now just starting to play. I don't care if it's two dollars or twenty dollars. I was investing in a good experience - not looking for the cheapest way out. Like Workman says above - my next step is to start looking outside the bag ;-). Now that I know what a successful growing cycle looks like, I feel better equipped to work via prepparing my own medium and using a larger, self-made environment. A mere tupperware container full of green mold is no fun. I'm building on some successful steps, so please don't thread-crap.

So, just what is it you're trying to sell me? I'm probably interested.

MikeD,

I try to harvest as soon as most of the mushrooms cap veils have torn off, but I know if I see the dark spores have dropped that I need to harvest right away. i don't know exactly what maturity is, but I hope that still answers your questions.

Leafblower,

Can you tell me what your visuals are like? I get very vivid colors and contrasts, but nothing I would call real visual disturbances. Another in my party was staring at some flower photographs she reported were breathing at her.

Thanks,

Tappuck

Pay no attention to ralphster, he tends to drink on the weekends. I wonder where those $100 bags are, they must be really good, hehe.

For your next step you should probably try the PFtek or you might want to first attempt to case one of the bags after its 2nd flush. Invest in a pressure cooker if you don't have one. You can email me for some handholding if you think you need it.

Workman,

I'm going to drop you an email. I need specific pointers and getting a nice pressure cooker is a no-brainer for me.

Thanks,

Yeah, shoot. 3g of moderate strength give me pinwheels, patterns, moving textures and even friggen rainbows, etc. etc.

Maybe I'm just a lightweight, but I have a visual blast.

Hey Leaf,

My wife pointed out that we get those too when we closed our eyes. Do you get what you describe with your eyes open or closed?

Thanks!

Mycotek,

Thanks for the info. I weigh 165, so pretty close anyway. I'm going to try 5 grams next time. I also clicked on your name to see your profile and got to your web site!! Hey, that looks like a neat little system. You may see an order from me shortly! ;-)

Thanks again,

Tappuck
