Hey everyone,

Been out of the scene for a little while, I'm back up and running again. Just thought I'd drop in and say hello.

To Malabar: Thanks for the phone call the other day, it got me motivated again. I'm glad you are doing well and look forward to getting your advice in the future!!!

Just found this video, it's pretty crazy. Only about a minute and a half long.

The stinkhorn is fucking crazy.


Cultivation / Malabar Flush
« on: August 20, 2009, 05:37:19 PM »
Here are some pics of my first malabar flush on popcorn. Mr. Malabar himself provided me with the grain to do a G2G to get this beautiful specimen. My largest casing to date (138 g). Here we go!

The little guys are still on the casing so they can mature, big guys came off and are below.

Oh, I'm broke so I'm drinking Busch Light....

Very proud, big thanks goes out to Malabar! I can see where he gets his name from, awesome strain!

Cultivation / Shaking a G2G Jar
« on: July 09, 2009, 12:34:07 PM »
I read something on Shroomery about not shaking a G2G jar 5 days after the transfer b/c the myc suffered enough destabilization while going through the transfer. I can't remember the details and don't feel like searching again. Anyone have any info on this.


Cultivation / Covering a polyfil filter w/ tin foil before PC'ing
« on: July 01, 2009, 10:21:28 AM »
Just wondering if I should cover my polyfil filter with a double layer of tin foil before I PC them. I am doing another popcorn grow, the tek on shroomery used a filter disc and then covered with tin foil. Is it necessary for polyfil too?


General topics / Is this wrong???
« on: June 28, 2009, 12:29:13 PM »
Would it be bad to subject a large group of people to involuntary hallucinations at a party? Like spiking the punch but with mushroom powder?

I'm not going to do it, I'd just like everyone's thoughts on it.

Anyone have any good jokes? I am not easily offended...... these are some recent favorites.

Abortion: it brings out the kid in you.

9 out of 10 people enjoy gang rape.

Cultivation / Casing Grains
« on: May 21, 2009, 09:37:07 AM »
Hey guys,

Is casing grains the same as casing PF Cakes? From what I can tell it is, I just want to know for sure. I'm starting a popcorn grow today, 2 pint jars being inoculated right now. Also, will 1 quart be enough for a lasagna sized tray? If not what's the recommended size?


Cultivation / Humidifier Question
« on: May 11, 2009, 05:27:39 PM »
Hey everyone,

I recently found out a buddy of mine dabbled in the world of mushroom cultivation but got caught by his parents (b/c he still lives with them unfortunately). So, he gave me his pressure cooker, a humidifier, and his terrarium.

He told me to send a hose from the humidifier through 3 two liter bottles into the FC, which is covered by a piece of plexi-glass to prevent moisture from gathering. Here is the humidifier he gave me.  Any help is always appreciated.


General topics / My Shotgun FC
« on: May 01, 2009, 01:07:35 PM »
What's up everyone?

So my cakes are in my shotgun FC and I started out with 90% RH and it's been as high as 94%. I taped up all my holes like I read in a different thread (Shotgun FC not a Reality?). I didn't want to hijack that thread so I started this one.

Today my RH dropped down in the 87% - 89% RH. I have rewet the perlite and put my cakes on smaller pieces of tin foil to maximize the surface area. I also taped the lid on tight. Is there anything you guys would recommend doing in addition to these few things to get my RH up?

Big thanks,

Cultivation / Mono Tub Help
« on: April 21, 2009, 01:57:56 PM »
Hey All,

I was wondering if 11 half pint cakes would be enough to make two mono tubs. I plan on spawning to coir/coffee/verm/gypsum. What size container should I use to get 4" sub and still have enough room for FAE and maintain RH?

Would something like this work:

I imagine that I would have to use a ridiculous ratio (1:8 cakes to bulk sub) to get a 4" depth. Would that just take longer to fully colonize the sub before I can trigger pinning.

JRFungi I know you do mono tubs a lot, if you could chime in that would be great. All inputs are much appreciated.


General topics / Free Spore Ring Canada
« on: April 14, 2009, 04:20:06 PM »
Has anybody used the FSRCanada before or any Free Spore Ring (Europe, South America, etc) in general?

Seems like a great way to get prints without paying too much $$$, just thought I'd ask for input before I send my request form out.

Let me know, thanks!!!

PF - Tek / Cambo Here We Go
« on: April 03, 2009, 05:13:21 PM »
So, I have my Cambodian strain being inoculated as we speak in a completely sterile research lab by my lovely girlfriend (who I'd trust with my life). I have a total of 11 half pint jars to start colonizing. I am going to do 6 cakes in a shotgun FC and then thinking about doing 5 cakes in a mono tub or vice versa (5 in a shotgun / 6 in a mono). I will make my final decisions before full colonization.

Anyways, the adventure has begun. I'll keep pics and posts of my progress.

Thanks to everyone for their productive/positive inputs about everything. Good people around here (most of the time).


PF - Tek / Dropping RH for Casings
« on: March 30, 2009, 05:46:33 PM »
Hey Guys,

I'm still up in the air about going with cakes or a casing. I wanted to ask everyone whose done a casing what the best way to drop the RH from 95% - 100% to 90% after the pins are visible? Any and all advise is much appreciated.


General topics / Delivery Time from Ralphsters
« on: March 27, 2009, 07:28:26 AM »
I ordered my spores from, everyone, that I've read, that has used him says the delivery time is great. Are we talking 3 days, 5 days, 1 week? Can anyone that has used him tell me what kind of time frame I should be looking at?

Thanks in advance,
The Deadneck

PF - Tek / Mushroom Music
« on: March 26, 2009, 05:59:58 PM »
Music is a big part of any trip, I wanted to ask everyone what their favorites are while on their journey to the outside realm? It's kind of off the cultivation topic, but still important.


PF - Tek / Sanitizing Fruiting Chamber (FC)
« on: March 26, 2009, 11:27:22 AM »
What's everyone,
I've been reading this forum for many days now and I finally went out and got all my supplies today and dropped a letter in the mail to Ralphster Spores, I got the Cambodian on the way. I guess I have two questions:

1) Can I make my substrate and sanitize my jars and just wait for the spore syringe and then inoculate, or is it best to wait and have all materials on hand before the substrate is made?
2) I have a 52 quart clear storage bin that I'm going to make into a Shotgun FC, what kind of sterilization does it need, if any?

PW, Baph, & Fattrout: I've been following you guys and your knowledge is ridiculous! I look forward to your help.
