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

Hey all. I'm a lurker and looking to do my first grow. I have a space bucket assembled, but I have no seeds. I'm on the east coast of the US, and no states around are set up to sell legally as of yet. My question is - is it possible to acquire seeds form anywhere in Washington DC? Are there any annual events where it would be possible to get any? I am completely in the dark here.

No the citric acid was doing pretty good protecting the plants, but where I live none of the regular seed will start flowering until the start of August so I have some time to fuck around with different ideas. I'm still using an alcohol & lemon solution on my autoflowers and they're still clean of critters.

Does the lemon work? I'm familiar with alcohol sprays, and that works by itself (though my plants tend to hate it) and I'm not sure the lemon is adding anything...

as far as i know on the acidic stuff, the point on it is to lower the PH where the mite's eggs are growing on the plant's surface. Low PH prevents the eggs from developing according to my readings
i haven't tried lemon separate from the alcohol yet.
i'd love to have a big experimental garden to fuck around in and i do a little bit of screwing around and let the plants suffer sometimes or do this or that to see what happens, but mainly i'm just trying to grow myself some bud so i haven't tried that yet. maybe i'll switch a couple plants to lemon-only for a week or two and see what happens, thanks for the idea.

First time growing - need advice on lighting by Dank McStank - Tue, 26 Jun 2018 23:01:47 EST ID:OHAlhJhf No.146104 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I'm doing 4 autoflowers in a 4x4 tent and so far im just in the seedling phase. Right now for lighting I'm using a Bestva 1000w LED light. This one to be exact.


My questions are
1) Will one be sufficient? I have read some people say that 2 is ideal but I'm not sure if that's overkill. Should I get any more lighting, maybe a couple smaller Mars hydros?

2) How high should my light be from the plants? I've seen recommendations everywhere from 12-30" so I'm not sure what to believe is best. Right now I have my at about 18".

Appreciate any advice!

How abut you make a few grows with the light and check the yield ?

That should be enough light for 4 autos, you should end up pleased with the per-plant yield and wondering if you could have grown 10-20 more of them in the same tent. Most autos yield in the 1-2 ounce range and 1000w is enough light to grow about 30 ounces. I bet your plants come out looking luxurious as fuck with that setup.

Thanks for the advice! I've been obsessing over making sure I have the perfect amount of lighting so it definitely makes me feel better to hear my current setup should be good enough. I think what I'll do is have my first grow with this setup and see how it turns out, then go from there.

you just told us that you don't know how to identify them and in the very next phrase you're telling us you're nearly certain that they aren't edible.
given that you can't identify it, how did you get to be so positive about it's edibility status?

It's a Rubus for sure, but could be one of a few things depending on where you are. My bet is on thimbleberry, since they don't grow very tall and are pretty common in the western US. It also might be a salmonberry, which grows taller but looks like then when they're that big. IMO, plenty of plants in this genus look the same until they flower and fruit.

if they're outside than you might want to do something to protect sprouts from slug attack, but one the first pair of jagged leaves grows out the slugs won't eat them.
other than that leave them alone.
i lost one sprout to slugs this year, caught the slug in the act but there was nothing i could do to save the GG4/Bubba/Jesus baby other than start a couple more seeds.

Ey guys just curious for some opinions, say I'm using a 450w viparspectra led with the aluminium heat sinks, and growing 4 plants in a tent sized for 5 what would be the average yield you'd come to expect roughly? I've been told that between 0.6g and 1.6 per watt is the range to be aiming for. Pretty wide range admittedly but this is my first venture, so a fuck tonne of good intentions just not alot of experience.. Also any recommendations for decently priced carbon filters?
