Psilocybe cubensis "Equador" PF-Tek cased
    #844048 - 08/26/02 11:58 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

These are all LEGAL mushrooms. (Non-psilocybin)

This is an experiment my cats uncle did while living in Equdor.

July 26th: 4 half pint jars are inoculated. Each jar is given around 2cc?s, the jars are then incubated at 82F & 80rh.

July 28th: Jars are all showing growth.

Aug11 th : Jars are 100% colonized.

Aug12th: The mycelium is broken apart into marble size piece?s in a plastic bag. The piece?s form a two inch substrate layer in a lasagna tray. The substrate is then cased with a half inch Coir(sterile) casing layer. The casing is then incubated at 82F & 75rh.

Aug14st: The casing layer is showing signs of growth. The casing is then moved to its fruiting chamber.

Aug17th : The casing?s surface has become almost completely covered with mycelium (very thick wet mycelium). Overlay has occurred.


Aug19th: Deep scratch the overlay using a sterilized fork.


Then a quarter inch coir casing layer is added.


Aug21st : Mycelium is showing a pretty even growth through the coir. There has been an increase in air exchange because of the earlier overlay. There are around 5+ fanning sessions a day and a fish air pump has been added to the set up in order to give more fresh air.


Aug22nd : The casing is starting to pin. It is given a good misting and left in the fruiting chamber for pins to mature.

Aug24th : More pins are forming and maturing. Lots of air exchange is taking place.


Aug25th : The pins are maturing nicely. A good misting was also given. Air exchange is given around 6 times or more in a full 24 hour period.




This pic has a weird mushroom in it, it looks like the stem tried to grow right through the cap.








Aug 26th : (Pic?s)

Your overlay problem is something seen often with coir. The mycelium loves it and colonises very quick. A good idea is not to incubate the casing for too long, or even put it straight into fruit after casing.
Things turned out well in the end, after the scratching

Good luck

Looking very nice... congratulations.
Don't forget to use olive oil and a little bit of white pepper when eating those.

looking great! I don't even incubate my casings anymore due to mad overlay problems.. they seem to work much better this way, the yields have gone way up. Another thing I do is use 50/50+ for the initial 3/4ths worth of the casing layer then add a straight verm layer on top of the 50/50+.. this seems to really help as well, the mycelium still comes out of the casing layer but doesn't overlay and keeps the progress at the right speed for fruiting.

i've had a lot of problems with overlay and have since done ok at correcting it, i'm still working out the kinks though.
