General topics / Rust!
« on: February 16, 2010, 08:09:02 PM »
So this seems like a problem I'm not sure how to combat. My lids where I put holes, and even some other places :() have rust. When I reused my last jars I cleaned the rust off as good as possible but on this batch when I disposed of the bad jars the lids had rust forming from the moisture inside jars. Should I be worried about rust it seems pretty obvious that it is a very good contamination factor but I could be wrong.

General topics / Thick mycellium growth
« on: February 16, 2010, 03:07:56 AM »
I've noticed in alot of the pictures I see of jars the mycellium looks very thick compared to mine. My growth usually looks lighter(still white but not as thick) are those just good colonizers or is something wrong with my jars/substrate?

Cultivation / Some tips for making a syringe
« on: February 15, 2010, 12:35:34 PM »
Well those jars that colonized really quickly were indeed contaminated, but it doesn't look like cobweb mold. There is a very black mold in there. My other jars don't appear to have this mold so I'm assmuming its the syringe. I made my syringe by doing the following;
-Used rubbing alchohol to sterilze a 250ml jar
-Turned oven on to cause some air flow
-Flame sterilized exacto blade, then used rubbing alchohol after words
-Put the jar on the oven rack and then moved the mushroom cap into the jar
-Put the jar lid on and let it sit for a day to make a spore print, then moved the mushroom cap to make another print, let sit for another day
-Few days later I used the needle tip(don't recall if I sterilized it or not) to scrape the print around in about 20cc of distilled water
If my other jars don't have this black mold I would be led on to think something went wrong in my syringe making.

General topics / Experiences with pftek cake tea
« on: February 13, 2010, 04:26:50 PM »
Going to brew up a batch in a little bit. Seems the effects are a matter of opinion from all the threads I've seen. Some say it's a really good trip others say they didn't feel anything. I will let you guys know how my experience goes, have you guys tried this before? If so how was it?
My experience: Nothing had happened so I won't be doing it in the future.

Title says it, welcome back bro =) Deserves a thread of its own.

Cultivation / Nearly full colonization over night?
« on: February 11, 2010, 11:23:52 AM »
Well I made a new batch and use a spore syringe I made I went a bit crazy with the solution. Pushed a bit too hard(I think the syringe losened up) and put like 3cc per jar haha. But anyways one of my jars I think it is nearly fully colonized OVER NIGHT. Maybe a day or two prior but I don't remember seeing any mycellium a few days ago... I know for sure it hasn't even been a week since inoculation yet the jar is nearly fully colonized.

General topics / Fish tank heater
« on: February 08, 2010, 08:14:34 PM »
So I was just thinking, would a fish tank heater that is keeping watching at a certain temp(26C for example) COOL the water if the room temperature was 30C?

General topics / How to tell if your mushroom is unsafe to eat
« on: February 07, 2010, 11:26:40 AM »
Well I was just checking out some of my second flush and decided to chew on one, it had a bitter taste(kind of like what a dandelions juices make your hands taste like after you play with them, used to when I was little). I've only had tried mushrooms so I'm not sure what good wet ones should taste like but the taste I had wasn't reassuring so anything you guys could tell me to help me know?
They LOOKED fine but this quote "Eat one wrong mushroom and, up to 2 weeks later symptoms develop, and the only chance of saving your life is a liver or kidney transplant." really makes me weary of them now because I hate surgery/hospitals enough as it is. I only had about 1-2 cm of the base of the stem as a taste test.

Cultivation / Growing in the summer
« on: February 05, 2010, 04:32:53 PM »
I was thinking how hotter temps mycellium doesn't seem to appear, and then was thinking how I was going to grow in the summer because I can't afford an A/C (Saving up). But if I don't get an A/C would it otherwise be impossible to because the temperature would def. be 30-40C inside my apartment all the time?

Cultivation / I need mre enlightenment
« on: February 01, 2010, 05:53:40 PM »
Which means I need more mushies, I'm scared to try it again not out of fear of contams through poor sterilization but contams through the needle. I had use a lighter and there is black residue on the outside which means undoubtedly there is going to be some on the inside. I suspect this residue is the main reason I had so many bad jars, if anyone could let me know if that is the reason/suspect I would really appreciate it becasue I want to start another batch but don't want to waste if it's going to go contam'd because of the damn needle tip.

General topics / Very small abort what should I feel lol
« on: February 01, 2010, 05:14:55 AM »
I just chomped down on an aborted shroom I had(or a small shroom idfk) but I thought it was alot earlier than it is right now... I got an exam in two hours, if any one can respond soon I wouldn't mind knowing how fucked I might be (or if I won't be)

General topics / Dried out mushies very small
« on: January 31, 2010, 11:42:25 AM »
My first flush is partially dried out(stems right now) and they are very thin, like 1mm thin probably. Is this normal..?

Cultivation / My cakes becoming beautiful
« on: January 29, 2010, 08:35:24 PM »

I didn't really get much or a mushrooms smell when I took this picture, but they're looking good imho.

General topics / MDMA and cubensis mushrooms
« on: January 29, 2010, 05:10:07 PM »
Anybody here mix the cubes with MDMA(or if it isn't pure ecstacy as it is called)? I've read that they made a great high and me and my buddy might try it next weekend when my first flush comes through

Cultivation / Wild bird seed with brown rice flour
« on: January 29, 2010, 10:00:37 AM »
I got some wild bird seed and BRF. Going to make 2 jars with BRF and bird seed, and 2 jars with just bird seed. Has anybody done this before and wanna give some insight as to what I should expect? Or if i should avoid using the BRF all together with bird seed.

General topics / Possible way to add humidity?
« on: January 28, 2010, 01:26:43 PM »
youtube vid I had found while checking out what golden teacher looked like, and I noticed he had what appears to be fish pumps just bubbling water inside his fruiting chamber. Would that add any humidity, cause I might just try that.

General topics / B+ Spore Print
« on: January 28, 2010, 12:56:17 PM »

Has anybody made spore prints from the B+ strand? They kind've look like they're not the easier to make spore prints of, and identify when the veil just breaks

Cultivation / No pinning to be seen
« on: January 25, 2010, 07:18:51 PM »
Birthed my cakes yesterday, and my 'good' cake seems to not have any pins. My bad cake how ever has a muchroom a few inches long already from one day.
I'm using the bad cake just for my own analytical purpose(touching the premature mushrooms, feeling the cake etc.) Besides the obvious part that's bad both cakes bare similar characteristics. The mycellium seems to have another layer or same white stuff(mycellium, fuzz not sure) growing on top of it. On the bad cake the mushroom caps were slimy.
Just wondering about all these things since its my first grow. I know of the cobweb mold but not sure how to be 100% sure this is a mold and just not the mycellium doing its thing. Are the mushrooms normally supposed to be slimy(keep in mind this is from my bad cake as well)
edit 2;
That large book(a programming book) was just put on there. It's a fair size(and fairly shitty to read) so I figured I'd make good use of it for once and put it on there to maybe keep in to RH(this is humidity right?)
Forgot to add, the containers are significantly different in terms of size. Will try to take and send a picture of the two. I am pointing to the good cake.
From what I've read this is either a humidy issue since it is much larger than the smaller container, CO2 issue because it isn't making enough, or a mix of both. I know how to make CO2 gas myself from science class so I could solve that with ease myself, the humidity how ever is something I'm unsure about how to solve. Any insight guys?

General topics / Western Union + Ralphsters
« on: January 24, 2010, 02:59:58 PM »
I tried emailing ralphsters some months ago and never recieved an answer... I wanted to know if they'd accept western union since it is faster and more secure than sending your money through the mail. Anyone know wether I can or can't?

Cultivation / Cakes still not colonized =[
« on: January 21, 2010, 08:03:35 PM »
Well some of you might remember my topic about my first batch, well they still aren't fully colonized I see about a cm or more of uncolonized dirt. Is this normal for this length of time for BRF cakes?
