First bulk sub grow results: Rye -> Coir -> Monotub -> 1st flush dry weight 143.6g * 2
    #9051129 - 10/09/08 12:30 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

This is my first bulk grow, and not a complete grow log. I just started taking pics like 3 days ago.

I used a microwave Karo B+ strain LC (which I almost threw away!), to 6 quarts of rye, spawned to coir, cased with 50/50 (1/2"), and fruited in a monotub.

Harvest


What I'm fan drying because all 4 trays of my dehydrator are stuffed


I don't know how much this weighs, but it is an assload of shrooms. I was a little disappointed that I didn't have one of those beautiful full canopies of perfect caps, but I've got nothing to complain about. This is more shrooms than I know what to do with.

A couple things I learned from this time:
1> Use a garbage can liner around substrate to prevent sidepinning. I got too excited when I was doing this and totally forgot this step. Luckily it isn't really a vital step, just a housekeeping step in my opinion. I had a ton of sidepinning and I assume this resulted in less pins on top, and it was a definite pain at harvest time.

2> I think it's probably important to have a nice level substrate, which I did not. I think this would have given me a better pinset, but again, I'm thrilled with my results.

Update 10/10/08: 1st flush cracker dry weight: 143.6 grams or 5.06 oz.

Thanks for checking out my post. Questions and comments are welcome! Happy mycologizing! :peace::heart::mushroom2:

nice flush! Did you spawn it to just coir? or did you add anything?

I used large_dose's  How i pasteurize coir in bulk Tek, which uses this recipe:

4.5 quarts water
1 brick coir
1 quart coffee
1 quart verm

I highly recommend this tek. It's very easy. I even used the same Lowe's bucket. Coir can be messy, but I imagine every sub can be messy.

Yup. It's dunking now. I filled the tub up with until it almost reached the bottom vent holes. The I put a large roasting pan on top of the sub, then put a cast iron griddle in the roasting pan to weigh it down. Worked great.

I give credit to large_dose's coir tek (see above) for the moisture content. For the 50/50 casing, I just used tap water to get it to field capacity. I didn't even pasteurize it.

Thanks. Nope. I used large_dose's bulk coir pasteurization tek. There's a link to it in another reply above.

Twist when you pull those suckers out!  You're ripping a lot of your sub out when you harvest.  Minimizing this will help future flushes, as the mycelium expends less energy recovering.

Excellent flush though.
