General topics / Caps where its at?
« on: October 14, 2009, 05:19:56 PM »
So ive been around drugs a long time and have always found the old wives tales like drink oj on acid and u will trip harder and shit like that to be all false.  well im sure we have all heard the phrase the cap is where its at when refering to mushrooms.  Anyone here believe this at all or have any knowledge that this could be true.  In an argument with a friend who says that my caps are to small to be worth anything even though i think they are beautiful and quite large before drying.  I have however had a couple of good trips on prettymuch stems or stems and shake before so I say it is bullshit.  anyway please weigh in as I respect your opinions.

Cultivation / lc still good?
« on: October 04, 2009, 07:25:16 AM »
so i have an lc that i made about a month ago. I used it to hit up five jars of orissa india wbs which i am casing today.  I put it in the fridge 2 weeks ago or so after i had loaded my syringes for inoc.  I pulled it out last night as i am going to use it in the next day or so to hit up my newly filled jars but the myc is all floating now.  the solution is still crystal clear and the myc look great but i am used to it sitting on the bottom of the jar not floating.  Will this still be ok?

Cultivation / rust in lc?
« on: July 17, 2009, 03:03:43 PM »
so making a new lc with hawaii and have good myc growth but used a mason jar with metal disc lid.  have done this before and not had a problem but this time some rust dropped into lc.  Myc is still advancing but I wonder if this is going to affect anything?

p.s.  Have learned my lesson and I will find suitable plastic to use from now on but would love not to waste this batch as a week setback is no fun.

PF - Tek / white dots of growth
« on: July 08, 2009, 04:15:10 PM »
So I hit up 14 jars of yt with spores from ralphster.  Have had great luck with his stuff but this looked a little funny like almost lc with spores in it.  shook it up and it looked better.  3 days in and there are small white dots of growth but not normal myc growth as i have ever seen it.  looks like anywhere the liquid settled or touched has them growing.  would have posted pictures but its not showin up.  Anybody had this before?

Cultivation / bird seed question
« on: June 28, 2009, 05:24:55 PM »
So I made the step up to wbs.  First two jars went pretty good but I followed a tek that said to soak them 24 hrs and then simmer them twenty min before 90 pc sterilization.  Got myc growth and was going good but I am pretty sure that they were too wet.  I went ahead and cased them after two weeks and the myc had slowed down but some around the edges was looking like paste.  When I opened them they had a fermentation smell to them.  I cased them and am seeing progressive growth but the whiskey smell is still there. 
     So on my second try I found a tek that said just soaking 24 hrs was good.  I skipped the simmer and followed all the same steps, hit them up with a dmk lc that I had made.  But they look to be bone dry and 5 days in I have like little white dots that almost look like sand all over them but no normal myc growth.  If they are too dry what will happen and should I dump and start over?  Any help here will be appreciated.  PW I know you work with wbs.

Cultivation / my LC froze
« on: May 23, 2009, 09:03:26 AM »
So I made my first batch of lc and it was ready to go but i had to go on a cruise and didnt have time to use it so i put it in the fridge like research told me to.  While i was gone though my fridge gave me the middle finger and froze the whole jar solid.  I am thawing now but do you think that will damage the myc or it will still be good to go?

PF - Tek / different results same fc
« on: May 09, 2009, 03:58:06 PM »
so have been picking B+ like a farmer but in the same fc the gulfcoast have barely produced and the ones they have are a third the size of B+ when veils break.  Is this normal and should I expect more from the gulf coast on second flush?  or is it a shit strain dump it and love on some gt?

Cultivation / adding brf to casing
« on: April 24, 2009, 09:17:17 PM »
I understand if i crumble cakes and case them they are still limited to the amount of nutrient they have.  but to counteract that couldnt you sprinkle like a half cup brf onto casing layer and or mix some into the casing mix?  wouldnt this also be a way to bring back a cake that produced several flushes already, by crumbling casing and adding more nutrient?

PF - Tek / shotgun fc not a reality?
« on: April 14, 2009, 06:19:50 PM »
so I have not hit any bumps in the road so far as I have 12 jars great myc growth and no contams.  two weeks in and I am about a week and a half away from the fc. So I thought I better build my shotgun fc today to make sure that it is gonna work.  I have done overresearch on everything including this, and I followed directions to a tee.  But the rh level is between 85-90.  this is obv not gonna work.  Am I missing something or do I just need to go to the petco and get some air pumps and a new bin.  I knew a shotgun fc was to easy to be true.

Cultivation / perlite question
« on: March 10, 2009, 10:31:52 AM »
the only perlite i could find was miracl gro. didnt notice till i got home that it is "enhanced" with miracle gro plant food.  is this going to affect anything using this perlite in a shotgun terrarium? should i rinse it more or throw it out?  i would think since its not going to be touching the cakes it will be fine but i know nothing so please help.

General topics / first timer need a little guidance
« on: March 08, 2009, 05:29:35 PM »
Sick of not being able to get shrooms and have decided I am not lazy so do something about it.  Found this site and its amazing.  I have been studying for a while and am pretty sure I got the process down enough to get started.  Might fail through trial and error but pretty sure I will figure it out.  ONE BIG QUESTION, where is a safe, reliable place to get spores in the USA.  And also any safety procedures like sent to a freind etc. etc.  Any help will be great, money not a big issue and not super picky on strain.  please help.
