if my plants are about four feet tall au naturel pre-flowering, will I benefit from tying them down at about a 90 degree angle and trying to level the branches?

what i'm hoping to get out of this is mainly a shorter plant with a more spread out yield than a big fat cola on top.

since i have some males i bent them to see how they'd take it and they seem to handle it fine, although i dont have plant ties to keep them in place just yet

I have an autoflower currently on 12/12 because its in there with another photoperiod plant which is done, can I swap the auto back to 18/6 without fucking it up? I've read that true autos won't care about light schedules but I haven't been able to find anything about moving them back to veg schedules after already being in 12/12

That tent is my big one, I have another 60x60x120 tent and was doing the spiral LST thing, it got way too wide and in the past I've had mold issues flowering in it because its way too small and humid.

So i grew this baby from a standard bag kit and I'm curious on how to keep it going from here. I understand that I need to keep spraying the now fruitless bag to keep it moist enough for the next flush to start but I'm wondering if I could take some mycellium samples and make some cultures from it. I researched a bit but have found information on how to start a culture from spores but not so much on how to start one with mycellium. Any help would be much appreciated.
>just use the spores
I tried to take spores from my fruit but I didn't seem to get many or if any. Ive only ever taken spores from a few mushrooms and this print doesnt really look like a print. Ill try and post that before I get home to see if anyone has suggestions or words of insight.

the irregular shape of the spore print isnt that suprising as the fruiting body itself doesnt look like any mushroom in the common understanding. if you hadnt provided context id have thought that to be calcination from hard water.

its possible to use a gas burner to ensure sterility at your work station since the up drift caused by it creates a cone in which virtually no particles descend. i prefer an SAB but tbh both are a giant pain in the ass. the burner since it drives me on the verge of melting and the SAB since it severly hinders mobility and the ammount of material one can work with at a time. if you opt for an SAB get the biggest and most sturdy one you can work with.

concerning your picture from mycotopia, you should always flame sterilize the needle. alcohol does not sterilize things, it merely disinfects them. cleaning a syring with boiling water is fine, tbh im such an inecological shithead that i just get a bunch of them for cheap. .05€ a pop wont kill my wallet, though it does have a negative impact on the ecosystem.

expanding a culture from tissue samples is as easy as placing a uncontaminated piece of tissue on a suitable growing media. considering the shap of your fruiting bodies it might be hard if not terribly uncomfortable to get a piece of inner tissue so perhaps you should instead opt for making multiple attempts at once so atleast some will pull through clean at the first iteration, if not you can always isolate a clean section of a petri dish and transfer that to another in order to expand a clean culture. i really like the gamma ray presterilized polystyrene dishes, but if extra cost in electricity and labour doesnt phase you, you can go for borosillicate dishes. its just that i easily break shit and theyre a bigger starting investment
generally starting a culture from spores is prefered since it starts a new generation with fresh genetics untainted by senescense but since you dont intend to grow your species in the wild, tissue cloning should be fine as you can control the environmental parametres to get proper fruiting.
but keep in mind that both tissue cultures as well as spore cultures require either cleanliness or tenacity especially since you just started

i havent really found a truely complete source for amateur mycology, im afraid that for now youll be stuck with comparing multiple sources. i recommend The mushroom cultivator or just about anything by paul stamets, the shroomery and the starter video series by marc keith aka roger rabbit and some scripts for practical microbiology courses. you can easily find a ton of video and text material provided by universities that explain techniques and methodology in a comprehensive manner. i was lucky enough to blow like a dozen credit points on microbiology courses in uni
-if you fail to locate marc keiths video series i could upload it to some filehoster. since he supposedly only produced the series to finance his wifes cancer treatment, i have no moral quarrels about sharing my copies, seeing as shes already passed away some time ago.

concerning probiotics. i guess fermenting probiotics was an improper phrasing. i just ferment a lot of food such as sauerkraut, joghurt, kimchi and kefir since i appreciate their taste and like to invest some time in cultivating microorganisms and convincing myself that there is such a thing as self sufficiency. not like ive actually given any effort to isolate a strain this far but since the foods themself are healthy even if you do not believe in the symbiotic benefits of probiotic organisms. and i continue to rape my colon with alcohol and drugs so a few lacto bacs extra certainly wont hurt me. might try to cultivate the shirota strain from yakult, not because i especially like yakult, but i like pirating shit, and microorganisms. im so fucking drunk.

Those cheap "100w" COBs are crap. Just get the smallest quantum board or a 50w citizen COB.

Also space buckets are dumb, it would be so much easier to just get a small grow tent that you can put together and take apart in 5 minutes.

Bought spores and bags separate.Injected bags about 4 weeks ago maybe a bit longger and these still haven't fully colonised.

Now the bags came in a small cardboard box and the seller said just inject them then put them back in the box and put them in a warm cupboard.

I've half thought maybe it's not warm enough in here but thermometer says it's around 72f in this room.I thought it was colder and the bags seem to be slightly cold to touch
Electric thermometer now says it's 71f and that's under the bag and folded over in the bag(bags now on A tshirt on the floor)

Should I speed them up and put them on my heat mat what a friend got from a mushroom fruiting kit.Or should I just have some patience?

I read this ten and its basically how to grow a lot of grain spawn from well
So I dont think its mentioned does he make the spawn then
>instead of spawn to substrate
he just
>goes from spawn to spawn
>and just throws it into tubs?

>Another one

I am working on a couple of mono tubs and I realized that there are these thee plots that each have a tree in the middle them in the back of my house that are basically big pots of stone bricks, enclosed spaces I can use for growing outdoors, for science of course, never done it outdoors.
And I can maybe get a couple good grows before it gets cold.
I plan on ripping out all the weeds and just leaving the tree, maybe some mushier can grow on it and its good shade and fucking huge so I can just take it out even if it was a bad thing.

so I figure its all just dirt and a bit of depth so I should fill it with a substrate and I dont wanna do poo, but I can get straw I think
So Im thinking
peat, straw or cococoir and lay the grain spawn from that tek on top then the sub again as casing.. but now I am rambling
Is there like an ideal mix? I notice a lot of people use poo and straw but can you just use straw and spawn ?

I might be able to get a lot free, straw/hay I mean

I helped a friend with some clones that took to outdoor acclimatization poorly, shall we say... Anyway, I weeded out a few that didn't make it, found a better spot with less sun, and all the other general stuff involved with NOT putting domed trays of never-seen-sun clones in full noon sun.
I kept an eye on them, thinking they probably flash friend pretty well, but they mostly bounced back. A few days later, I noted that one of the left for dead plants refused to give up the ghost! Tossed in a corner away from full sun, on her side, amidst the corpses of her sisters, she had turned her head, her one good leaf, back up to the sun!
So this season's charity case has arrived in my life. I don't know what she is, since the trays were labeled but not the individual clones... But she's potentially a Sour Punch #3, or a Chemical Weapon.

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.

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

Are there any annual events where it would be possible to get any? I am completely in the dark here.

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.

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!

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.
