Well, I'm Sold on Hpoo - Updated with the Rest of the First Flush
    #8800380 - 08/20/08 12:08 PM (9 years, 8 months ago)

This is my third grow, and my first with poo. It is also cased with a layer of 50/50+ that is about 3/4" thick. My first one was with pf cakes. My second was with pf cakes with a casing layer. That worked better than just cakes...but not all that more impressive.

But man, these shrooms are coming in bit and fat and tall. I've never had caps like these. This first pic is from the Thailand Super Strain. They are not all that tall (about the height of a lighter), but they are so fat and plump. Can't wait to dig in!



The real winners so far seem to be my B+ tubs. They are coming in HUGE. They are nothing like some of the prize-winning boomers that you could take to the fair. But they are definitely way bigger than anything I have been able to cultivate up to now. Here is one section of one of my tubs.



This is my B+ tub as it is developing.



This series is the first part (maybe a quarter of my first flush from my B+ tub). This is the cluster you can see in the earlier pic where the veils have broken.









Here is the rest of the flush from my tray of B+.









I am dunking my trays right now, and am going to recase them. The casing layer never really colonized, but then mushrooms started popping through. If I dunked 'em like they were, then the entire casing layer would have scraped off anyway. So I am going to recase, and work for a more even pinset, and see if I can get the casing layer to colonize any better.

Does anyone have any ideas to pitch in about how to get the casing layer (50/50+) to colonize more effectively?

nice pics. After seeing fruits from poop and noticing how much of a higher yeild it produces, i am sold on using poo as spawn for the WBS jars i have colonizing. I am planing on spawning to Hpoo mixed with a little straw in a bulk sterilite container, I was just wondering how you pasturized your poo?

I sterilized it for 90 minutes in a steamer. I did that because hippiechic says to do it. She also says she gets five and six flushes every single time. She's got the pics to prove she knows what she is doing...so I am just following her lead.

I have been thinking that I am going to do the same thing next time. The myc sure seems to like the poo. My tubs colonized within just a few days. If nothing else it would shave a few days off of the time taken to colonize jars.

Are you spawning to Hpoo or casing with it?

Never used Hpoo before, never had any interest in doing it until now.

Forgive my ignorance, but I am still unclear on vocabulary of spawning. I 'think' I am spawning it. And I know I am casing it. I let brf jars colonize, and then I crush them up and put htem in my tubs of hpoo. Then I case my tubs with about a 3/4" layer of 50/50+ casing formula.

Does that help. Sorry for being a noob brother.

So, you're still casing it with something else than.

You just put all the colonized crushed up cake in some tubs of Hpoo, do you let the hpoo colonize, or do you immediately case them with a 50/50 mix?

Those are awesome pics.  Congrats!!!  Two questions .... 1) Is it pure h/poo or is it mixed with anything and 2) Do you let the H/poo colonize before casing or are you casing right away and 3) It looks like you have a monotub setup -- are you setting it up and leaving it or doing anything  to encourage more FAE or to increase humidity levels?

Thanks and congratulations again!

I put the cakes to the hpoo, and cased immediately. One of my casing layers however,  started to get overlayed. When I posted about this, the old hands around here told me to let the poo colonize first, and then case. So I recased the one that was getting overlaid. With the rest, there were parts that were looking like they could get overlain, so I just picked those parts out, and kind of re-mixed up the casing layer.

Nest time, I am going to just wait to case until after th epoo is fully colonized.

1) Thanks for the warm congrats brother!

2) See above post for what I did with the casing layer.

3) Yeah, I just used pure hpoo. That is what hippie chic says she uses. It seems like most of the pics of real prize winning shrooms around here come from pure hpoo grows. So I stuck with a proven winner.

4) I have about a four inch layer of perlite that has about 3 and a half inches of water in it for himidity.

5) I fan a few times a day on top of having the mono-tub set-up just to make sure of FAE. It may be overkill, but that is the other thing hippie chic said; in order to get five and six flushes there has to be plenty of humidity, and the only way to run that much humidity and moisture is to have plenty of FAE. So basically, whenever I walk by the closet that has my tubs, I fan 'em.

    #8805394 - 08/21/08 02:01 PM (9 years, 8 months ago)

What I've become real curious about is the level of moisture I started out with. The first time I cased, I obviously squeezed way too much water out, and my casing layer dried out within a matter of days. Plus, since I cased brf cakes, those are kind of dry already. So even with dunking after a flush, I still struggled with moisture.

This time, I swung the pendulum too far over the other way and left too much water in there...so much so that I had to drill holes in the bottom of the little tubs the poo is in, and drain out a considerable amount of water from them. The casing layer was also a lot more wet.

So now, it is three weeks to the day after I put cakes to the poo (is that spawning?), I am getting pretty decent first flushes, and I have not misted anything even once. In spite of it all, my casing layer is still real nice and moist, and so I am not sure when I am going to need to mist. I am also unsure if I should dunk after this flush, because I don't want to get everything tooooo wet.

Any ideas?
