General topics / Fruit sizes??
« on: December 13, 2008, 01:18:20 PM »
Well my first flush fruited very skinny thin and a little taller fruits.  My flush coming right now had very fat pins and i thought they were going to actually get big.  they didnt grow big at all they strated breaking the viel when they were like 2 in.

My question is, what causes this?? What do i have to do different to get nice fruits?  It has to be the RH cuz my FAE is automated.  Can it be anything else?

First skinny tall now short fat, i cant get it right  :angry: lol, nevertheless, im happy i have another flush tho, i had fun last weekend lol.

Cultivation / Plan for next grow.
« on: December 09, 2008, 09:23:00 PM »
ok, so im going to continue to case my grains but also im giving somthing else a try.
Im going to do a monotube and do a bulk coir spawned by rye.  I have a couple q's...

1st with the rye, (Baph im pretty sure u do rye, do u do anything different?)

-soak for 12-24hrs     -rinse     -simmer for 30 min      -pc...    is that right?

2nd, a monotube is supposed to take care of its own RH and FAE is that right?  Also, does the size of a monotube matter, can it be TOO big??  Do u rec. mixing a lil bit of coffee 2??

OFF TOPIC-
about how long can u keep a master LC in the fridge for?

General topics / FAE Q
« on: December 08, 2008, 01:36:11 PM »
Is a Air pump (30-60 gal aquarium) suffient for FAE?
this is it here..http://www.walmart.com/catalog/detail.gsp?image=http://i.walmartimages.com/i/p/00/04/67/98/77/0004679877857_500X500.jpg&product_id=10313014&iIndex=1&isVariant=false&corpCard=false&type=0
Would it act the same as a cool mist humidifier if i have it set on a timer to go on every 2 hrs?
I have my rubbermaud bin but im starting a GH(martha setup).  Would the air pump supply enough FAE there?

Cultivation / PW or Baph
« on: December 02, 2008, 10:36:19 PM »
Well as u all seen i was a bit succesful with my 1st grow but not fully :angry:

I want to make a lot of improvements and 1st i think i should start w/ FAE... Whats a easy autamated FAE setupp for a rubbermaid bin (PW i remember u saying somthing bout a fan or even air pump, im open to all) fanning wasnt doing it 4 me lol.

Then for the RH, whats the best way to keep it where u want it (rubbermaid bin), how would u set it up, stick w/ the perlite?

1 more thing,  does the first flush affect the next flushes. in other words, my 1st flush was small and not very good, if i improve the FAE and RH would the 2nd be perfect?? -_-

THX guys...oh yea last 1 lol, do any of u recommend putting a little verm w/ wbs when making the jars?

General topics / back huh...
« on: November 19, 2008, 03:29:59 PM »
cool, couldnt get onto the site (i dont think it was just me but maybe) and i cased anyway.  pretty sure it was ok to case but i will post a pic later when i get off work.

Im having a pr with the RH tho. 
I first put around 5 in. of perlite on the bottom of the fc (2 bags btw). 
I took out bout 4 inches out already and is still the RH is reaching 98 99. (i dont think it the humidometer<<< made that up lol.. cuz i could see the drips insinde.)
I drilled about 20 little holes in the FC (already had 3 BIG ones) and coverd them with coffe filters becuz i dont have tyvek <<coffe filters r ok am i right?
Well see how the RH is when I come back, hopefully it settles at 92 like it is now.
Again ill post a pic later or tomarrow to make sure my tub is ok and not 2 dry.

General topics / FC not transparant?
« on: November 12, 2008, 02:38:17 PM »
My rubbermaid FC is not transparant, I cut almost the whole top of the bin off and made a see through acrylic glass (like plastic glass) top.  would that be sufficent or do I need all sideds to be transparant?

Cultivation / perlite in the FC
« on: November 12, 2008, 01:02:06 PM »
Quick Q, the perlite set up at the bottom of the fc, do u soak the perlite before or just pour the perlite in the fc then pour water? 
If soak, how long do u soak and what ratio of water to perlite do u put?
Soak with distiled water for best results?

Is it a good idea to get the RH in the fc before u plase the tub's in?
would it hurt if u put the tubs in right after u place the perlite??

THX alot!!

Cultivation / water?
« on: November 11, 2008, 02:35:24 PM »
I know ure supposed to use distilled water (case mix) but can u use filtered water (tap but filtered) or maybe microwave the water?

Off topic-after u mocrowave and cool ure case mix, how long can u keep it (or reccomend keeping) in ure container for?

Cultivation / disinfect perlite?
« on: November 10, 2008, 10:20:15 PM »
Do u have to disinfect the perlite before you place it in the FC? If so, whats the best way?

Off topic- i didnt get a chance to get the Clacium carbonate, so is the 60/40 peat, verm alone ok? will the ph level be ok?

General topics / shaking jars?
« on: November 06, 2008, 09:06:39 PM »
I shake my jars... now i've just read that this might introduce contams to ure jars because u disrupt the mycelium development and some dont recover (they said unless u isolate).  It said just shake right when u innuculate and leave it be.  Is this correct... I thought its good to shake at 25% 50% and 75% ( i been doing it a little more often just becuz im excited bout my 1st grow hehe).

So how do u pros do it?  do u guys agree with this non-shaking tek?

Also, they said that cracked corn and popcorn are the fastest colinizers (substrate) what do u guys think?

General topics / WBS?
« on: November 06, 2008, 07:38:20 PM »
As i have posted before, I'm doing a hawaiian strain on WBS.  now we all know how slow its been colinizing for me and id like some feedback from ppl either that have done hawaiian or wbs. 

Can WBS slow down colinization?  i dont know y but it seems to me like rye would faster.  Do you all think it can be the strain?? maybr both?

Has any1 ever used cracked corn.-from watching the wbs colinize i noticed that the cracked corn was always the first to turn no matter where it was.  Can this be a good substrate?  i've read very little bout it but heard it can be used.

thx ya'll  :mellow:

General topics / size matters?
« on: November 06, 2008, 08:52:08 AM »
does the size of the shroom affect the potency of it?  ive read (little) somthing that said the smaller shrooms are a little more potent than the big monsters?? So should i be looking for fat asses or r the big 1's just as good? 

Say i have 3.5 grams made of 2 big shrooms and another 3.5 g made up of 10 little 1's... would the affect be the same?

Also how is the potency of aborts compared to a regular mushie?

Cultivation / Air in the FC
« on: November 04, 2008, 12:45:21 PM »
When i put my case(s) into the FC...(using the perlite setup in a rubbermaid bin) do i need some kind of air filter or bubler? is venting 2-3 times a day enough?

Also, baph, u said 3-5 inches of perlite, so when the RH is getting 2 high, just remove a inch or so til the desired amount is reached?  If i vent the FC, wouldnt that mess with the RH? 

Just making sure- RH 90-92% is a ok amount :huh:

General topics / buying rye?

Cultivation / Patiance....my first grow!
« on: October 27, 2008, 12:41:59 PM »
well, I started my grow and i will post updates here.  When i get action or concerns ill post up pics but anyway its the Hawaiian strain on a WBS substrate.

As of now,i have a little concern as there nothing happening yet lol... I inuculated Thursday evening/night and nothing.  im being patiant and will start some new jars with a difrent strain at the end of this week if nothing happens. 

I know a member here said he had trouble (very slow colizination) with hawaiian strain, can that be it?  I thought the grains start showing signs after 2-3 days?  THX!

Cultivation / Foil on during colonization?
« on: October 23, 2008, 05:42:21 PM »
I recall reading in a post (Baph) that u said u dont need the aluminum foil on the jars during colonization, am i right?  I beleive u also said that a polyfil lid is enough (no tyvek or coffe filter lids).  I did just that, I got a Polyfil lid and thats it, is that good enough (also i have the aluminum foil over the lids but im not sure if its nessasary)?  will the aluminum affect the "breathing" process during colinization? 

I'm just making sure that i remebered correctly...trying to play it safe! :mellow:

General topics / substrate after pc'ed
« on: October 22, 2008, 02:18:21 PM »
after u pc a jar (wbs 4 me) how long can u keep it before u inuculate it?  will anything happen 2 it if u keep it in the pc or out (for more than lets say....3 days?)  does rye differ in this perspective? TY!
