First Attempt Results [Pics]
    #803212 - 08/07/02 07:54 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Well I finally got my camera back. So I took some pictures... Two of the cakes are on the second flush. They are doing much better then they did on the first. I guess they were fairly dried out after birthing.

Heres a shot of a large 2 pint cake. I had to cut some off though when I birthed it. It basically had stopped colonizing downwards.


Heres my humble terarium. Fits about 4 cakes.


Another terarium shot.


And todays harvest.

Its alright... Though I think im misting to much/often. In the harvest shot you can see a fair bit of fungus growing up the stems of the shrooms.

Also, im using crazy glue to keep those tabs stuck to the glass, which holds up the drip shield. But the damned things come loose every 5 days or so... I gotta get a better glue to hold the thing together. You can see one of the tabs on the bottom of the terarium in the one shot...

Try silicon. That's what's holding the tank together. Clean and dry the surfaces to be bonded. Apply a small bead of silicon on the standoffs and stick them on the appropriate spot.

Keep in mind that the solvent used in the silicon is very volatile. I don't know if this would hurt the shrooms, but you might want to consider that. It seems that you use cyanoacrylate (Krazy Glue) on a regular basis, so the silicon's fumes might not hurt.

>Keep in mind that the solvent used in the silicon is very volatile

If you use fish tank silicon and let it air out for a day there will be no problem with the fumes.
But personaly i have used regular RTV clear silicon and have had no problems once i let ir air out. just don't seal it up right away.

Heh that?s really good for a first go. My first try (about year and a half ago) I only wish I had those yields. Then again I did go really cheap with my setup. Anyway, good job !
