So, these are my white-cap ecuadors lol [pics] ;)
    #783066 - 07/29/02 12:37 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hello all...

after more than 10 phonecalls, i managed to find someone with a webcam. it took him more than 2 hours to set the cam working, as weird problems appeared [windowz XP...]

anyway, here is the pics of my white-cap equador shrooms lol. last night [3 a.m.] the cap of the big one was not well open, but when i woke up today [11 a.m.] i saw that spores were everywhere on the casing under it already! i have put now some alu foil on the small one hoping to get its spores.

As for what had happened to my cultivation and resulted in such a crop or how I think I saved those two shroomies of no-existence lol, u can read my other post http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum2&Number=777436&page=3&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

So in the first pic u can see the casing with the two shrooms. Note that today only, the casing seem to have pulled away from its sides. It wasnt like that till this morning. Why did this happened?



In these photos you can see more of the shroomz





and I already wrote, those r the white caps. They do have some deep color only on a spot in the center. when the shrooms were pins, they had a very beautifully brown cap but as time passed by and shrooms getting larger and larger the cap was losing its color, until it become white. weird, isnt? someone know why?





note that they bruise BLUE, in seconds if something touches them [I found out later when I put the alu foil, which caused the area there blueblueblue!!

And as for the size, didnt have any money to put next to them lol, so I decided to put the packet of SMALL rizla papers, probably all of you know them



lol they arent so small, right? lol

okee those are my babies; sorry for the bad quality of the photos. And now we reach to the point. Do you think its okee to consume them? Why are they white-caped? They look healthy and do bruise blue. Any comments will be much appreciated!

Thanx everybody

PEACE

ps: this post was written yesterday and uploaded today. the shrooms are picked up and are now in a dessicant chamber.

If I had something like that, I would start taking prints, and cloning the fuck out of that shit!

That's fucking cool.

When that casing is about spent, you should use it as spawn in some bulk substrate.

I can't see your pics... there's only your avatar in place of everone of your pictures (fortune-city).

As said in the faq, the casing pulls from the sides at least after the first flush. This is caused by the shrooms sucking everything from the substrate+casing layer. You can recase in order to avoid contams at the sides and add water (spray) so that there's more water for the next flush.

LilMerlin... only theory. Thank you for your former post about your problem solved... it helped me... I see pins now .

thanx!

well i have taken spores in alu foil. actually, i think of 3 reasons why they became like that, not in priority order: (1) the spores were somehow weird (2) the air-conditioning or the prolongation of the casing in extreme heat conditions > 32 C until the air-conditioning idea started (3) the rye flour that I had created from rye grains, was only the shell as i figure out, so some of nutrients from inside grain werent inside the cake

also, the big one is about 13 cm height.

Peace

My main problems was fruiting and overlay... I thought I had to have 100% rh, or at least that it couldn't hurt. So, my terrarium was totally hermetic and I sprayed a few times a day, which continually added humidity without allowing it to evaporate... I vented manually 6 times a day, but it was far from being enough.

Reading you post helped me realize I should do something about the air-humidity exchange. I filled holes in my terrarium with polyfill, vented a bit more and let a bit my terrarium open for a while after having aerated it. For one of them, I didn't even spray (just put some clay pellets, and it my rh is too high anyways) and there are 4 pins (the 11th day). This was for my Gulf Coast casing.

The heat makes my mycelium jump out of the casing and prevents me from spraying the casing layer... which will probably give smaller fruits as a consequence... but I don't know yet. I also put a casing of wet perlite in the freezer and placed it freezed in my terrarium so that the temp goes down a bit. I don't know if it really helps, but it looks like it.

I still have to succeed with my Mazatapecs. But its mycelium looks more fragile and either accumulates droplets and is sealed by water or simply dries and overlays.

My temps, here in Switzerland are about 27 in the morning up to 30+ in the afternoon, depending on the days.

LilMerlin.

Now, it works like a charm... Thank you.

Still your yield isn?t that miraculous... only on the edges and only a few. It?s probably what?s gonna happen with one of mine... with only verm.

What is strange with my verm casing, is that there are droplets all over the verm and on the mycelium, even where there are hyphal knots. Have a look at my second pin of this casing:

I don?t know if something?s gonna happen with those hyphal knots you can see. Some clusters of them on a heap of mycelium became yellowish-brownish, as if they had dried. I don?t know.

My question is: did it happen to your casing as well? I?m wondering if my casing will have a similar fate to yours: i.e. only a few shrooms at the sides.

LilMerlin.

well the fact that there are shrooms only on the edge of my casing, probably means that my casing is not right.

my casing doesnt look exactly as yours, because mine dont look so moist on the mycelium. there r no droplets of water whatsoever. i am not an expert, obviously, but i think my casing was MORE moist than it should be, so yours is VERY moist my second casing, a GT strain, has just showed up three pins, probably aborts i think, but i didnt mist it at all prior to putting to the terrarium, lets see what will happen!

Hope the best for you also

i am currently CONSTRUCTING a humidifier. with a fan from a pc and a filter of my own... hope it works, i will try to send photos.

The faq says that when shrooms grow on the sides, it's a sign of the casing being dry... ???

LilMerlin... puzzled sometimes.

hm... dunno.

the problems on my casing was two actually. one that the healthy shrooms growed on the side [almost] and the other that i had 2 healthy shrooms and 7 aborts.

now on my second casing which yesterday pinned, as i said i didnt mist it again, just left it like that. There was 3 pins there, thin, miserable, like the aborts of the other casing. This morning, the pins are fat, taller and have healthy BROWN caps also, there is another pin on the center of the casing. lets see if my casings were dry or wet...

i suppose that our question lilmerlin has to be answered by someone who really knows, but i dont c anyone willing to participate...

i will keep u informed. how r things going 4 you? how is the casing today?

Peace

High Kykeon,

Congratulations my wycked friend. It is good to see that all worked out fine.
As it seems you are bleshed with something special, white capped eq's.
Keep on going and cultivate all strains with a white cap.
And if you are the white cap master of the OMC I hope you will remember us all:)

As you see the younger casing has a cluster of 4 pins today and there are three others scattered on other edges:


The verm Casing doesn?t have more pins, and shows a very slow growth... However, there is one mushroom (older, but it was hidden to my eyes before):


LilMerlin, not expecting much from the verm casing with only 3 pin after 15 days, while the other has alread 7 after only 12.

Hey there,

I am still only getting a bunch of freakin' popups (that is what is wrong with free websites...the advertising popups just suck) and no pictures. Even with the URL links it still gives only your avatar pictures.....post some here on the board in the picture forum.

Best regards,

KingBolete
