How Bad Did I Fuck Up by Shit Chopperture - Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:11:18 EST ID:nnmz11mq No.145931 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So, this is my first time growing shrooms using BRF tek method. Anyway, I birthed my cakes yesterday and noticed that one of the cakes had black charcoal-colored mold near the top. Like an idiot, I dunked it anyway and today I cut away all the black stuff. Didn’t realize black mold can be so disastrous. I had the cakes sitting in the fruiting chamber for the better part of the day until my friend convinced me to toss it.

So, question is how bad did I fuck up? I’m worried I may have contimainated not just my grow area, but my entire room. Anyone have similar experiences? What should I expect?

Pic is a photo from this morning after I cut away all the mold.

yeah you fucked up pretty bad, but dont beat yourself up about it. rome wasnt built/burned in one day.
you are using the pf tek with a shotgun fruiting chamber? if so religiously stick to fanning and for now air your whole appartment and maybe dust and wipe some surfaces with some lysol. if you havent rolled the remaining cakes you could theoretically wait a day or two before applying the verm layer.

for future reference:
afaik any mold but cobweb poses a higher risk that a single cake could possibly be worth. if you notice it after birthing the cake, put that shit in a plastic bag and seal it asap.

refer to a general room mol prevention guide. frequent airing, leaving a gap between furtniture and the wall, regularly moving furniture yaddda yadda bla bla bla. but tbh i highly doubt that a species that grows on a PF cake is going to instantly affect your wallpaper. and IIRC there has not been a documented case of a hobby grower getting proper pulmonary problems from mold contamination (at least not on the most common forums)

its possible to grow healthy mushrooms in a non sterile environment, which is obviously what they've always done. The problem with heat sterilization is that the substrate loses most or all beneficial, symbiotic organisms which the mushroom mycellium naturally coexists with, and actually protects it from other, airborne, pathogenic strains of mold.

symbiotic or beneficial microorganisms are not very important for cubensis especially with the pf tek. they play a crucial role in the cultivation of ps. cyan and ps azur, but with pf tek you actually need to make the substrate dead as goodest as possible before introduing cubensis spores or tissue

Been reading up a lot on growing mushies since I realised it will be a lot cheaper to grow my self rather than keep on buying kits and risking having them seized.

I'm thinking I'm going to start right off to mono tubs but dunno what substraite to use.

I've read rye is ye best.
But I live in the U.K. And can't seem to buy big bags in any shops.
Same goes for popcorn
I've read bird seed is a good one but I've ha a look in a few garden stores and they all seem to be loaded with sunflour seeds what's supposed to be shit.

I've looked for manure but you can only use fresh right ?

Same goes for brown rice flour.No big bags any where and I think it was rather dear.

If it comes to it I'll order online but my long term thinking has me paranoid because I know someone who used to grow small amount of weed for years on end got caught and ended up getting jail instead of let off because they went back on his bank statements and seen he had been ordering bits of soil and fertilisers on line.

I don't know about seasol specifically, but if it's like kelp tea, it's pretty mild and more for promoting good soil microbes than a straight "plant food".
Their website didn't really list it's analysis or contents, beyond "seaweed extract", so I dunno.

got a combo seasol pack, 500ml 'health treatment' along with 500ml 'plant food'. Ive been using them about every second day. Also have some test-tomatoes going to test limits of watering along with other things.

Plants (autoflowers) have begun showing the hairs off the small growing bud sites. only one plant at this stage but none of them have had LST/supercropping or anything (and theyre small plants) so will only have one main bud cola. How long should I wait before swapping lights and lighting for flower?

they've had 23/1, with an hour cooldown for the lights. When I swap should I go to 12/12 or 18/6? or some people have said leave it at 23/1

yes, but they like a lot more light than your spider plants do. if you start them inside now you can always transfer them outdoor later because flowering won't happen for a 6 weeks or so regardless. disregard if you're not talking about pot seeds, i just realized KWT might be poppies or kratom or something else

Lmk what YOU think! It is an indica dominant strain

Also I don't have a microscope to see trichs so that's out of the question. I'm always so indecisive on when to cut. I know it's not ready yet but I never know for sure when it really is

How many flushes do you get from a bag opposed to a jar?
Do you find the injection "port" better?
Did you buy the bags pre-sterilised or made yourself?

This is my third grow (over the course of a decade), and the best looking so far (the first two didn't have a vent fan set up and were huge messes). Mixed up the seedlings early on so I'm not 100% sure what the strain is, but given the characteristics and what I started with, I'm pretty sure its either Auto OG Kush or Auto Blue Cush Fast.

Temps are around 28c, which is a little higher than I'd like, but much better than I've managed before.

I think the fan leaves are getting light damage (probably because I'm still running 18/8, because Autos) but I don't think it'll get bad enough by the time I harvest. I don't have a very steady hand with the scope, but it looks like about half the trichomes are an opaque white. Given the rate its been maturing, I went ahead and began the flush.

I have to have a smoke alarm check in the building I have a 2 plants in, they don't need access to the room the tents are in, but they want to kill the mains power to check the alarms, which is obviously bad.

One plant is about a 5 weeks old, still in veg, the other is in week 4 of flower. I expect the power to be off for a maximum of 15-20 minutes. Will this be that much of an issue? It will throw my timers off which is annoying, but will something like this be enough to stop the plant from detecting dark for the short period the power will be off? https://www.lights4fun.co.uk/i/q/LL141705/3-warm-white-zap-led-battery-push-lights

It doesn't say how powerful the lights are but they're only for stopping complete darkness, and battery operated being the main thing.

I wouldn't worry about it. Summer storms can block out the sun for a few days and plants always do fine. You're plant will still be converting stored sugars into usable sugars for growth, without the use of light.

It's a good idea, but if stealth was my goal, then I would let them stay in the dark. They can go 24hr or more without light and be fine. If they can't then something was wrong with them before all this

Bumping this because I now have a new problem. My ceiling is leaking and will most likely result in the power being cut to repair it.

I have thought of this, but I would rather have the filter on the inside somehow, so that the air is pulled through it instead of pushed. I could also get another filter and put them inside each tent, but then I would need a stronger fan I think +filter.

Filter on the exhaust won't work properly, first they need the dust filter on the outside, second the way they are constructed they require air to be sucked through them, not pushed (the pressure differential has to be in the one particular direction)

Just buy two filters and fans OP.
If you are really to cheap to do that you can put the outlet of one tent into the inlet of the other, temps will be higher in the second tent but at least this is a workable solution.

The filter in the box would work too but I think that building that box might cost you more than an extra filter.
