my 1st cake
    #573547 - 03/08/02 03:45 PM (21 years, 11 months ago)



This is my first fruting cake ever (PF's Amazonian strain using the PF Tek). Needless to say, I am proud of it. A friend of mine had 3cc's of solution left in one of his syringes and gave it to me after having all kinds of problems trying to grow himself (total failure). This is the first of my 3 jars to fruit. Each jar is using a different type of vermiculite mixture because Schultz brand SUCKS. Their bags are all labeled EXACTLY the same, but they come with different grades of vermiculite...none of which are suitable for my needs.

Today after 8 days and no fruiting, I've decided to dunk the other 2 cakes in a pitcher of spring water. I don't think the temperature in my terrarium has been low enough until yesterday, but the dunking can't hurt.

Last night I innoculated 10 more jars with some P. Tasmania. We'll see how they turn out in a couple weeks. Hopefully I'll case those... Up next I'm planning on experimenting with rye berries and millet seed substrate mixtures. 3 more P. Tas syringes waiting. Woo!

Youi know what.. From the dark look of them, I thought they would be abhorts as well.. They actually kept on growing though.. This morning when I got home and checked them.. Basically every mid-sized shroom on the cake had doubled in size.. Maybe they will still abhort yet, but they really don't have much more to go before the veil starts to split away at this point. Or am I a little off? They seem pretty big...2-3" with a decent cap. Maybe I'll just pick em and move on to the 2nd flush...or case with the little casing walkthrough that was posted here a couple days ago. Decisions...decisions...

Sorry it took me so long.. Here are the 2 slow starting cakes that hadn't started pinning yet when the original post was made (they were being dunked). The first cake grew to very similiar proportions on both its first and second flushes. So far my first foray into the PF tek has worked out pretty well... I have had a few small abhorts (you can see some), but I've heard PF Amazonian is prone to that kind of thing.

great pics! good work! where did you get the PF Amazonian strain? i dont think PF has offered it for a while.

i dont know what dude above was trippin on but from the first pic it is too early to tell if they were aborts! looks like it just started pinning.

BTW, after harvest you will need to dunk that cake on the right, its bluing very badly.

Very nice !!!

Looks like your humidity is low.....though.

95 % to 98 % humidity will make larger fruits.

Great first go....way to go.

The syringe had been laying unused for about 6 months... My friend ordered a couple generic syringes from fanaticus back then and never ended up using the last 3 ccs.. As far as I know he got PF amazons... Lucky me! Now I'm moving on to tasmanians for my next 10 jars.. Will be interesting to see the differences between the 2 strains as well as the things I learned during the first run through being applied
