I'm not sure but i would leave the clusters on for a little while to see if they develop into shrooms.

A question, How long did you put the jars in the microwave to sterilize? Has anyone else tried this? Sounds a lot easier than boiling.

There is a tek somewhere in the shroomery under miscellaneous but its rather sparse. Here's what I did:

After experimenting with the microwave in the kitchen here (I'm in a dorm so a pressure cooker is out of the question) I found the best time was 6 - 7 minutes on high. The trick is to sterilize the cake without overdrying it. I'm sure its different with every microwave.

I used 10oz. Rubbermaid jars (purchased at Meijer) and the standard PF formula. To keep things sterile as possible, I had each jar soaking in a lysol water solution until i was ready to fill them. I put the lid on loosely so it didn't snap down and put it in the micro. You need to have a glass of water in the microwave along with it.

As soon as I opened the door to the microwave, I snapped the lid down (be careful of the steam!), lysoled it, and duct taped over the holes and duct taped all the way around the lid to seal the crack between the lid and jar.

I didn't have any problems with contamination, but it could have just been a fluke.

Leave the clusters alone for now, most likely a full grown mushroom will sprout out of it and you can pick the small ungrowing pins when you pick the big one. If the pins don't grow heads or the heads begin to turn black but aren't growing then they're aborts and you can pick them (before they go bad) and dry them the same way as you would full sized shrooms. They are quite potent and the last time I grew I got 10 dried grams from them alone.


Good luck.

I'm growing PF's strain. I bought the spores before I knew they were shitty. Oh well.
About the humidity. I wish I knew. I haven't been able to find a decent humidity meter. I have been spraying several times a day and keeping condensation on the walls of the terrarium so I think I'm doing ok.

I've been keeping the temperature just below 80F, except I cold-shocked them down to about 60 for 12 hours or so. I brought the temperature back up to 80 about 40 minutes ago.

I have a couple cakes that are doing really well with a lot of nice healthy looking pins, but the rest are dissapointing. Few if any pins on those. I'm hoping the cold-shock will help.

sorry bigwill
read the post above "are PF spores really that bad?"

i was under the impression that they were substandard spores from what i've heard from other people.

Motion,
How many are you getting? If it is alot try more aeration. Too many aborts is often a sign of low aeration. Definately cut them off. It is not advantages to leave them on for a couple of reasons. The first being that they are taking up space where pins that could mature to full specimen could be. The second is that they could be still slowly using mycelum, which in the end will lower your overall yield. Third and the worst is the fact that aborts left on the cake can be supceptible to an attack by bacteria. This leads to them being unusable.
Next, in answer to your question, "Can they be dried"?. Yes, in fact they can be VERY potent (in terms of weight/psilocybin ratio).
