HELP! Hydrapod or Cool-Mist Setup??Need 50G Dry!!
    #764460 - 07/21/02 01:06 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

A situation has come up and I need 50 dry grams of mushrooms in 3-4 weeks:) Is this amount easier reached using a terrium with cool mist humidifier or using the hydra-pod? I have heard great things about the hydra-pod and money is no problem. I am wondering which of these will give me the bigger yield...which is more effective and which will be easier!? I've heard great things about the hydra-pod...what should I do!

Oh also, if I'm using the pf-tek, how many cakes will I need to reach the 50g dry yield?

This is gona be hard...but hydrapod definitely works good, if money is no issure.

50 g dry...I?d guess 15 cakes after the first flush, or 10 after several flushes.

"terrium with cool mist humidifier or using the hydra-pod"

No offence but thats the stupidest question ever! Of course the proven, automated Hyrda-Pod is MUCH, MUCH better than any hand build terrarium could ever be. Hydro-Pod is better than any terr on here except maybe PsilosKube or Moe's because they can hold way more.

Why do you need 50g dry, do you own a dealer money and are paying him back in drugs?

If you do everything right, very possible.

Bad idea.
Stick with the half pints.
And make it 20 to be a round number, just in case contamination partially strikes.

Oh i didnt read 3-4 weeks. That is very hard for a newb. Colonization, on average takes 14(roughly) days. Thats 2 weeks + 1 week waiting to make sure the inside is colonized. Then you have to dunk then if you want to get anywhere close to 50 dry grams off cakes. You should also cold shock so pinning will start sooner. Then recovering from cold shocking is like 3 days + waiting for pinns which will definetly be 1 week minimum. Also if your conditions are not **PERFECT** to initiate pinning it could take 1 week all the way to 3 weeks. Then waiting for the fruit bodies to mature is 2-5 days. Then harvesting and drying, drying is about 2 days. And unless you have like 30+ cakes 1 flush wont get you 50 dry grams, especially a newbie. So you wait for a second fush which is 1 week roughly. In that week you must dunk+cold shock again. Newbs, such as myself almost NEVER get it all right, i know i definetly didnt!

So thats a MINIMUN of 35 days for the first flush if you get everything absolutly perfect+a little karma and luck. And a more possible time for 1st flush is 45-50 days. Again unless you have 30+ cakes your first flush wont make 50 grams. 2nd flush, same procedure(cold shock, dunk) add another 16 days for dried mature fruits.

That does NOT include buying the equipment or any kind of delay which always happened, even for the super-veterans.

I say its not possible but i say try anyways, and definetly start right now!

Karma and much luck to you,
Fd

This is rather optional. I?d put them in the pod as soon they are visibly colonized in this case where the time is an issue.

i have a pod...it works great....but it still aint shit compared to some shit...bulk produces way more....but it will be almost imposible to get a bulk project to produce anything in 3 or 4 weeks if your starting from spores. I get about 50 dry grams from 2 flushes of 10 pint size cakes in my hydra pod. But pint size cakes take about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks to colonize.(for me anyways) once the cakes are birthed i normally notice pins in 4-6 days. Fruits mature in about a week.
good luck
p.s. if your using a pod you should order it today.

I dont think you can double stack cakes....you might be able to...theres enough room...but i wouldnt. All you have to do to the hydrapod while your mushrooms are growing is turn a dial at different stages of the mushroom life cycle....so basicly you turn a knob three times and thats it.

In reply to:

Nice choice or words

Mushroomaniac, I am assuming you and a few friends are about to embark(sp?) on a magical trip . Or at least I hope thats the "situation" you speak of. Either way none of my buisness I guess

Got a strain in mind or handy? If not get yourself a strain known as a fast colonizer. Keep your temps at optimal conditions for fastest possible results. Hurry things yet be patient at the same time.

Better hope to it! You've got work to do! The clock is ticking. Good luck!

Exactly what you said, we want to walk down the yellow brick road...my friends have never tried mushies, I'm the only one that knows how it's done and they have all said they will chip in and buy me a pod, it's 25 of them So I can't let down my friends!
