Cultivation / Re: Check out my drying setup
« on: November 11, 2010, 04:52:27 PM »
Yea I discovered that leaving it open like that was not such a good idea.  So now I just put them under the fan for 1 day then transfer them to that same container with a lid for another day and then I have cracker dry mushies. 

Here's a jar of my first flush.

-Peace and happy growing.

Cultivation / Check out my drying setup
« on: November 07, 2010, 04:25:06 PM »
Ok so here I got two pics of my setup.

materials: Plastic container, desiccant, aluminum tray, drying rack, ceiling fan.

So I pretty much just harvested these guys, and placed them on this here rack over some desiccant.  The container is open and has no lid covering it.

What you can't see is the ceiling fan above running on high and the cuts + holes I put into the aluminum tray to let the water fall through.

and yea I plan to leave them like this for 24-48 hrs.

This is my first time drying my harvest, normally I always chew em fresh but I've grown more than I can eat in one sitting so..  here I am. lol

Those of you pros out there, can you tell me what you think?  Is this effective or not? All thoughts and comments welcome!

-Peace, and happy growing.

PF - Tek / which side up is best?
« on: October 25, 2010, 06:10:56 PM »
Here's a question for those who knows!

So when you have your cakes birthed and dunked which way do you place them in your fruiting chamber?  Lid side up (original orientating) or bottom side up as the base is always more densely colonized unlike to top near the lid.  Or hell has anyone placed it on its side?  I have seen people do it either way, but which way is best and why?

again,  lid side facing up \_/  ...... or bottom side up / \

PF - Tek / Re: Alternatives to BRF?
« on: October 04, 2010, 02:02:28 PM »

What about if I start with jars and make a few cakes, with BRF + verm.  then after they are fully colonized crumble them and case them in a verm. and cow dung mix?

-also the only reason I do cakes is because it is easy and I still have a lot of excess supplies for it, plus its so cool to see their growth through the glass jar!

Peace and Happy growing!

PF - Tek / Alternatives to BRF?
« on: October 03, 2010, 07:53:54 PM »
Hey everyone, 

I am going to be growing a new batch using the pf-tek and I have always use organic brown rice flower as the food for the myc. and I was wondering if any of you have ever experimented with other foods either mixing it to the BRF or replacing it with an alternative.
So if any of you have come up with any cool alternatives that help getting a better yield then share your info here. :D

Ok thanks Dub,  I think I have the temp. and humidity too high.  I may have to start from scratch, maybe plant these guys in the back yard and see what happens.  This was my first casing attempt and I've learned alot through failure.  I'm going to revamp my tek and try to be a little wiser.  Thank you for your insight.

Cultivation / Casing question help
« on: September 30, 2010, 07:30:33 AM »
Hi there,
so I tried to do a casing mix this time for my magic, but I have run into problems....  Let me explain.  I first made my jars etc and they grew fine, a little slow but ok.  Then once the time was right I put them into my casing mix and into the incubator, now they have been in the incubator for nearly a month.  They now seem to be growing very very slowly and I don't know why!  A few of the cakes from what I can see through the bottom of my plastic tray have grown well but others very little.  I'm not sure if its my casing, or temp. or what...  I can see a few places where the myc has grown a little on the top but its pretty weak.  These are B+ which I have done before and they grew much faster and stronger than this... Maybe I have a bad strain, I'm not sure...   
I don't know if I should keep them in the incubator and maybe raise the temp or try and get them to start pinning.   

  any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you have a question for me please ask.

Thanks and peace

I prefer fresh.  There is something special to be gained when they are freshly picked and still alive.  It sounds kinda barbaric when I say it like that, but I feel the "union" is stronger for it.

lol thats cool, I've got this one cake growing 6 mushies and I'm prolly gonna harvest tomorrow.  Since they are fresh and I do want around a 4g kinda trip does that mean I take 40g fresh or what do you think?

General topics / Anyone know a good dosage calculator?
« on: November 13, 2008, 01:36:46 AM »
So I'm just looking to find correct dosage numbers...    atm I'm working with B+, and Amazonian... the B+ will be ready for flush#1 pretty soon, the Amazonian seems to be working but is slow. These B+ grow freakin fast too....

But to the point if I could get some help with dosage that'd be great. It's not my 1st time taking, and I'd like it to be fairly heavy.

Thanks for any help. peace.

Cultivation / Re: Myc fight back?
« on: November 05, 2008, 04:12:12 PM »
So I birthed these cakes and found that upon cutting the dark spots off jars 2, 4, and 5 that the black stuff was very present in the center of the substrate... don't worry I birthed in a safe place.  But anyways I cut most of the black crap out and now I'm dunking them.
Hopefully Baph you answer this post soon, but do you think I should just throw away those ones?  Let me add that they all have been or did pin wonderfully... which gives me hope.  But if you think that the ones with some black junk should be tossed immediately then do tell me so. Thanks again. peace

« on: November 03, 2008, 02:10:01 AM »
Sorry I should have clarified that these recent jars are NOT the same as the 2 pics posted perviously.  These new pics are of 5 jars: the Amazonian, then Jar#2 3 4 and 5.   The two pics posted earlier were from the same batch but is not one of these 5.

but do you think I should cold shock them then birth them? or just birth them and into dunking?

Cultivation / Re: Myc fight back?
« on: November 02, 2008, 05:21:16 PM »
Alright the highly anticipated pics have come lol, ok so I'm just going to link a bunch of pics, there are 5 jars total, 1 is classic Amazonian which looks the healthiest, and the other 4 are B+ , Now on a few of them there are weird bits of what might be or used to be contam, I don't know, so I'm letting you guys look. Just tell me what ya think. Oh and my plan is to put them all in the frig over night and then birth followed by dunking etc.. because I just don't think I'm gonna see large pins or anything maybe because there isn't enough moisture left in the jar.

This one is the Amazonian

Heres a good looking side of Jar #2 B+ also showing off my tek there.

This is also Jar #2 see the bottom spot, wtf is that? All I can describe it from my eye is that it's Black and the myc seems to be squeezing it sort of.  So yea Birth or no birth? and if I birth could I cut that part or it out?

Jar #3  :whole jar looks good, but this one side, these little spots of orange black. Jar does look to be very dehydrated.

Jar #3 bottom view

Jar #4 : this one also has small orange spots around in it in addition to that strange grey spot.

Jar #5 : and this one has the orange spots too and that black splotch.

My guess is that you will say throw them all out in my outdoor bed save the Amazonian, but still I'd like your opinion on the whole jig. thanks again

Noted Baph, thing is I'm not positive it's contam at all I was only speculating, but I will have pics soon to better help.

Hey some of my other jars have a tiny bit of something else growing in there, and its near time to birth, can't I just cut the bad stuff off with a sterile knife or something?  Will show pics soon

Yeah I know its a strange method, but it works, my Myc grows fast as shit. But the real issue about my question is whether or not the polyfil can "take the heat" in the PC, and wrappin it up in foil to keep water out.
