Took New Pictures and its looking real good, Just concerned a little because the weather here just dropped dramatically and its cold. My temperature in my closet dropped from 77 degrees f to 72 degrees f Im thinking of puttin the heat on.

Im going to start out with the picture of the jars where its not colonized all 6 of them right down below


From Left to Right....this first jar is the Hawaii Strain almost colonized but you can see a big spot missing..its getting there


This second Jar is the Tasmanian Strain lookin good


took a picture of my temperture at 72, the jar next to it is the hawaii strain


this jar is the tasmanian strain


This picture is also a tasmanian strain


the last jar at the end quickly colonized faster than the rest of the jars...tasmanian strain


this last picture was taken on the sides where its all colonized


so far its going good but slow. gotta keep my temperature up at a constant rate.

I'll take more pictures either in the mid or end of the week.

72 is ok.
They will still colonize.
Don't forget it's about a 3 degree differance from the inside of the jars.
So if it's 72 in the room it's like 75 - 76 in the jars.

I just thought since I had it at a constant temp (75) that maybe interrupting the temp might effect the rate which the mycelium colonizes. I turned on the heat only if it went below 72. Im constantly checking the temp just to be on the safe side.

thanx for the advice

This pic is the Hawaii Strain and Tasmanian Strain (from left to right)


you can see the tasmanian strain is almost fully colonized( 90%)


the rest of the jars are doing good


The last jar at the end is almost there....fully colonized

they look like the mix is packed down a little much so it will colonize slower, next time around just let it all fall into place n the myc will grow way faster when its loose and airy.

sorry for not keeping you posted....I had 5 jars that were a success and I soo many shrooms but once dried had around 3 oz. What can I say? I was HIGH 4 a LONG TIME LOL I gotta recommend the HAWAII Strain Kicked ASS, BEST Visual and the Tasmanian Strain had the longest effect. Again Sorry for not taking pics of the first birth and me drying it....Got too excited when I saw the first shroom pop up. This time Im starting 4 new strains and im going to post it up ....... :ph34r:


thanks to all who helped me thru my difficult journey.
