I am a complete beginner and darksyde has been helping me along.  This is my first casing ever and it has gone great w/ the EQ strain.  Now I am doing my clone.

I have some Eq colonizing nicely right now that look great.  I am doing a clone on them as we speak during the ball game.  Let us know where the photos go and I am in.

I think I am progressing to casing grains as well.  From what I have read and learned recently it seems the effort level to yield is much great for casing grains rather than doing the BRF cakes.

Good to know.  So you guys will dunk the cakes for up to 24 hrs?  I also have 6 cakes that have been in their 1/2 pint jars that are fully colonized.  I have not birthed them yet b/c I am waiting on my tropic air to arrive via amazon.  How long is too long to leave your cakes in the jars?

I am about to birth 6 cakes from my 1/2 pint jars.  I am wondering if most of you support the theory of dunking.  I am completely new to this and submerging these cakes in cool water for 24 hours had me a bit concerned.

I can not speak to how strong they are, but they were some of the easiest to colonize the jars by far in my experience.  Good luck

I watched a video on building a shotgun FC and the guy had 100's of holes in the tub.  So I did the same, and then I got on here and noticed many post saying not to put too many holes.  Whoops.  I can get another tub and instead of drilling 1/4 holes all over the place I will follow your lead and drop down 1/16 of an inch to the 3/16.

Here is the link to the post/video if interested:

I believe it is the 3rd video on the page and it explains the making of the FC.

I now have the temp right in the room.  Now I will build that light stand out of pvc to hang my light.  Also, I would like you to pm if you get a chance so I can learn about your TropicAire setup.  That thing is slick.

I birthed these cakes on Sat. the 13th and soaked them until the 14th.  They then went into this holed up FC w/ soaked peralite.  Do you think they are junk or do you think w/ the right setup they will still fruit?

I use shutterfly for my pictures, and I think I figure out how to post the pictures here.  Thanks for the help.

This is the shotgun FC.  I am not sure what the humidity is in the chamber, but my hygrometer is on the way here.  Also I have replaced the green cover w/ an opaque cover so it can get light.  I then place my grow light on top and turn it on during the day.  Any thought/questions?

I finally figured out how to post pictures to a forum.  Perfect.  Thanks alot for the help everyone.

Thanks for the information.  I went out to Walmart and bought a convection space heater, grow lamp and an opaque top to my container.  I tried to find something like your stand at walmart that I could zip tie the lamp to but nothing.  It looks like those rods have some plastic inserts that allow you to make the legs and such.  Do you know where I could pick up a stand like that or build one?

Your setup is very slick.  What is the thing in the middle with the tube running to the two fruiting chambers.  The folks here are mentioning they have a monotube, and hell I do not know what that is either.  Guess I will google that.

Thanks for the help and I will try to get my pictures of my FC up after I post this.

Also do you have a picture of the walmart grow light you are referring to?

I just ordered the hygrometer the other day through amazon, so I am waiting on it now.  I may have too many holes but I am not sure.  So I have attached a few photos.  Let me know what you guys think.

Well I tried to attach the pictures to this post but I did not know what to put between the img tags it gave me.  I tried to put the file path, but that did not seem to work.    Any help is appreciated.

Also I have a temp gauge reading the internal temp of the fc.  Right now it is about 64 degrees in there.  Is that a bit too cold, and if so how would you guys recommend getting the fc to the proper temp?  I like the temp of my house where it is, and if I need a heating pad or something just let me know.  I have holes on the bottom of the FC to promote air flow and humidity, but if you think a bad would emit enough heat from the bottom I could do that.

I am in the same boat as Wednesdays, as this is my first time to grow.  I inoculated 12 jars Ecuador strain.  I also was unsure about doing the dunk and roll technique b/c it was not in the PF=Teck for simple minds.  So I took six of the 12 jars that were fully colonized and tried this procedure.  Sunday the 14th I took the cakes out of their soak, and rolled them in the verm.  Now I have them in the Fruiting Chamber w/ the peralite and the plastic container with a ton of holes in it on all 6 sides. 

I have yet to see any signs of growth.  However, I do not have a light on the FC giving it any light yet.  If I need to I have a portable florescent work light I could turn on during the daylight hours if this may help.  I just want to make sure I am doing everything properly.
