Cultivation / liquid culture

I started some lc about 11 days ago. It appears as though it worked. I used honey. How long can my jar survive in the fridge??

Cultivation / mushrooms opening early
« on: November 20, 2010, 11:26:56 AM »
some of my mushrooms are growing and opening under the casing surface. anybody have a clue as to why this is occurring??? they are in the same environment as the other shrooms that are growing just fine. i think that after i cased them, i left them in the incubator too long.

Cultivation / FAE

is the fresh air exchange necessary before the mushrooms appear? i am talking about the time you put them in the fruiting chamber but before you see the actual mushies. just trying to avoid contams.

i have not been on this site for some time now. just wanted to thank everyone (malabar, fattrout, dub, shroomzer) for all of your help last year. i was just starting out and knew nothing about growing. after some reading and some input from some great poeple, i was on my way. i just knocked up 12 jars of popcorn with a spore print i have been saving. i'll post pics soon. thanks again!!!!!

Cultivation / aborts
« on: August 09, 2009, 02:41:48 PM »
i had a real nice pin set with popcorn cased with peat/verm. most of the pins turned into aborts. is there one cause for this, or can it be various reasons. i have brf cakes in the same fc that are doing very well. so conditions in the fc are good.

PF - Tek / pearlite
« on: July 26, 2009, 09:17:42 AM »
how often should i change my pearlite? can i simply rinse and drain it?? i know it is not expensive, but if i can use it again, i would like to. waste not, want not!!!

Cultivation / cakes vs. casing
« on: July 26, 2009, 09:02:54 AM »
ok, here is a thought. it seems that casing produces better yields. i have some cakes that i have just pulled the 1st flush. can i dunk them, then crumble and case at this point? this is my last batch of cakes. i have moved on to the wonderful world of popcorn. but i was just hoping to squeeze a little more out of my cakes. any thoughts??? :huh:

Cultivation / azurescens
« on: July 21, 2009, 08:28:57 AM »
i've been reading up a little on azurescens. it seems they are difficult to grow. has anyone grown them successfully?  :huh:

Cultivation / peat/verm
« on: July 15, 2009, 07:15:54 AM »
i just crossed over to the wonderful world of popcorn. the 1st attempt is cased (peat/verm 50/50). it should be ready for the fc by friday--hopefully. my question is this~~~~when pressure cooking, should i have a whole-with polyfill- in my jar lids?

Cultivation / casing ?'s
« on: July 11, 2009, 06:20:54 AM »
ok, so i am venturing on to grains. i have pint of fully colonized popcorn. i think i am gonna use peat/verm mix. do i put a layer of the mix down 1st, than the popcorn, than another layer of mix? the tub goes back into incubator for how long?? i'm not 100% on how to do this. any help would be greatly appreciated!! what type of "peat" should i be using??

PF - Tek / dunking cakes
« on: July 10, 2009, 06:46:16 AM »
i just picked all the shrooms off my cakes. i know they are going to sit for a while and do nothing. should i dunk them again? if so, how long?? and should i roll them in dry verm again?

Cultivation / black and blue
« on: July 09, 2009, 05:19:14 AM »
the caps and some of the stems turned dark purple, almost black, while drying. they don't have a funny smell. is this normal? i think i waited too long to harvest because my fc looks like a purple bomb went off inside it. i am assuming that this is the result off spores dropping. are the shrooms ok to eat??

Cultivation / harvest time
« on: July 06, 2009, 06:08:35 AM »
i have noticed that the veils on a couple of my shrooms have broken. is it time to pic them? how long can i leave them grow after the veils break? will leaving them grow have any effects on potency? this is my 1st time~~~don't want to mess up. i want to pick them all at once.
