So when you put spores from prints or supposed sterile spore syringes onto agar are they supposed to look like this when healthy ?

I know there are two different types of mycelium rhizomorphic, and tomentose but my one seems too fluffy.
The one on the right colonized very fast hoping that can be used.

Also they have sat there about 4-5 weeks now and a few more I have are like the top left but probably have less mycelium on them...does that mean they are rubbish .

Any guides on how to analyze agar can only find them on how to make plates and do transfers.

im almost sure that there has to be a slight bacterial contamination in some jars, since some of them smelled a bit off but my sense of smell isnt what it used to be anyway. fingers crossed the 25 jars ill 'noc up wont end up turning into green dust.

no hands on experience with bigger unmodified tubs yet. im waiting until i have my method of preparing spawn bags dialed in, untill then i'll keep on working on shoeboxes.

since i had pretty good results with monos in the past, it seems likely that unmodified monos would do a bit better seeing as i tended to struggle with the dry climate around my parts.

if you get contamination try to make the most of it. their location can give you hints as to when they mightve been introduced. dont try to fruit a jar that has gone moldy and try to not spread the spores around your work area. i normally sterilize them before opening them, but i think just soaking them in water and opening while still emerged should drastically reduce the amount of spores that become airborne.

out of curiousity: what variety of cubensis did you decide to get?

Good luck with those jars. I have golden teachers to start off with but once I know what I'm doing I want to explore different varieties. When you put a spawn bag in a shoebox, do you wait for mycelium to colonize it more or do you go straight to fruiting conditions?
press - Wed, 17 Feb 2021 11:49:27 EST bvuDfHq3 No.147543 Reply
i dont quite understand the question.
when spawning shoe boxes i normally use a mycoquart and spawn that to 1.5 actual quarts of coir supplemented with gypsum. i then let it colonize fully with the lid snapped on before flipping the lid to initiate pinning.
ideally there wouldnt be a differentiation between colonization and fruiting conditions, but just growing conditions, but my climate is too dry.

i use spawn bags for monos, since that allows for a "one aliquot of spawn per fruiting chamber" approach, allowing me to isolate any grain spawn i mightve fucked up.

This is a picture from May last year. What kind of poppies are those? I gathered some of the pods once they were dry but they didn't work. Are they persian poppy or something?

Also, I'm more curious to know what those pink flowers are. Anyone knows? They seem very familiar but I can't remember their name.

Im interested in making a blend of mild tobacco with nicotania rustica for strength.
Is this reasonable?

I don't know much about this but it does seem like the logical option nowadays. At least you'll be smoking pure tobacco with no dubious additives. It does sound like a good combo but remember than nicotiana rustica is a few times stronger than normal tobacco. More power to you. The government taxes on cigarettes are bullshit.

You could do a side-by-side experiment and see which one works better.

But you're right, it should have everything it needs inside the cotyledon. And if you use those liquid "calmag" bottles, it usually has a some nutes and other shit mixed in, so you could burn the seedling.

For your next grow I would recommend using Low Stress Training to even the canopy. Tube lighting has very poor penetration qualities so you want the lights as close to the plant as possible (if the leaves start cupping you're too close). Beacause you have had the lights a tad far off you have such large internodes. As you can see in this picture it is possible to get very tight internodes if you do this right.

Not sure if this is the right board to ask this, but here I go...

I inscribed in a nation-wide contest (not american nor yuro) for young entrepreneurs without hoping to win, yet I managed to do so.
I now will have access to a free kit of gardening power-tools.
The project I signed for it was for managing a native-flora exclusive vivarium who also offers landscaping services. While I did a short course on the matter and I'm currently studying to become a park ranger, I have no experience on the matter, much less about being self-employed.
Too much, too fast. I want to be happy but I feel overwhelmed and I could use some advice.

There are other problems aswell: I don't have enough space to make a significant plant production. There are a few places I could talk to and acquire space, clients and bussiness partners, but I lack a development plan and I don't know quite what to say to them:

-The city's official vivarium and orchard (not the best place to start at but it's worth a shot).
-The eco-friendly ONG's farm I started volunteering recently at (perhaps I can borrow a small patch of land for them and share the profits of my sales and services?).
-A nearby native-flora vivarium (I believe they don't offer landscaping services. Could I offer them a partnership using my tools? I can also try to talk them about how they got into bussiness and gain some insight.)
-A nearby agrarian college. I can both ask for space and share the profits *and* get some formal knowledge about managing a vivarium.

>-A nearby agrarian college. I can both ask for space and share the profits *and* get some formal knowledge about managing a vivarium.

Start here, and start by going to the head of the botany/forestry department. If he says "no", go to each individual forestry professor. You said you're studying to be a park ranger. Don't know how that works in whatever country you're in, but where I'm from, it's a college degree along with botany/forestry/agricultural sciences. The students typically run a few greenhouses and a nursery to raise and sell plants for fundraising; and the college pays an outside company to do the actual landscaping, planting, trimming, etc.

If you're already enrolled in such a college/program, just ask your professor if you can get credits doing your grant thingy from one of his greenhouses.

If the botany professors aren't cool with it, head over to the Business Management department and ask them for help. They might not be able to lend you space, but they surely know how to do this part:
> acquire space, clients and business partners, what to say to them

The other 3 options are great for lead generation. Definitely hit them up, but don't be surprised if they don't want to cooperate, as you're planning to be direct competition with everyone except the city's vivarium.

Didn't want to go and start my own thread, so forgive me if this derails the thread, but i was wondering if this cactus is indeed the san pedro cactus?
there's a ton of these on a trail i ride through and i was thinking of grabbing some cuttings and plating them at my place maybe chomp down on some too...
So am i looking at the saint himself or is this just a cool tall look alike?

Late reply but that's cereus peruvianus aka apple cactus not trichocereus(echinopsis) peruvianus aka san pedro. They actually don't look anything alike aside from both being columnars. Rib formation is the biggest giveaway here.

IT'S ALIVE!!!! I am so excited!

I have used hundreds of thousands of these seeds in various concoctions, ayahuasca and teas over the years. I felt like I wanted to give some life back to the plant that has benefited me so much. I have huge bags of these seeds so I put about 20 of them 1-2cm below the soil, gave it some nutrition one-time only (8-3-7 NPK fertilizer with added iron and magnesium).

I've been extremely lightly watering it every 2-3 days (just so only the top 2 centimetres are moist). I'm in Northern Europe so winter is approaching, the recommendation was to seed it in spring but I did it on a whim a few weeks ago.

I had basically given up on it, didn't think it was able to go and now ONE HAS SPROUTED. Holy hell. I've done some research but it's very conflicting. Some say keep it drained and relatively moist, others say let it periodically dry out, some say give lots nutrition, other say it will rot... It's currently in a glass bowl without drainage, generally I keep all my plants in drainable pots and periodically put them in the shower but considering this is a plant that likes arid environments, I opted for this.

How the fuck do I give this plant a high quality life? (as high as it can be outside of natural circumstances that is)

Also, is it likely that the other seeds will have sprouted as well or am I extremely lucky with this individual one?

You can only correctly identify a nutrient deficiency if you can have a clear look at the entire plant and a sharp picture of the affected places. You also shared nothing about what medium and fertilizer you're using, making it nearly impossible to give good advice.

So basically I'm a dumb fag and bought 1/4 pint jars instead of 1/2 pint jars for growing some B+ in. It's incredibly hard to find yield expectations etc. for this size of jar since everyone else seems to be able to actually read and actually get the right jars. Has anyone had any success with these? I'm not really planning on spawning to bulk or anything, just going to do the fruiting in-jar with a bag over top for keeping humidity in. Should I just use these as pseudo-test runs to get something decent to put on some agar and try again? Maybe nut up and make a monotub? I'm new to this so I figured I'd see what you guys think.

Basically what this guy said. Quarter pint jars are actually pretty dank since they take less time to colonize, and once the caps grow in you can get pretty much any amount of spore you need going forward

You don't need a fancy grow box. Buy a cheap plastic storage container, somewhere in the range of 8 to 14 liters. If you want to do unmodified monotubs, that's fine, you're pretty much set there.
Those grow kits look over-priced. Look for a legal/legitimate "shiitake grow bag/ grow kit" or "portabello grow kit" to get the same stuff cheaper.

These grow kits are just overpriced, pre-packaged stuff, though. If you have a pressure cooker, you can make grow bags out of rice or oats, for literally pennies.

If you're really wanting to skimp, you can buy some packages of Ready Rice (brown rice, unseasoned). Look up the "Uncle Ben's Tek" if you want more info. It's more expensive than making your own bags, cheaper than buying a grow kit, and it's one less sanitary/sterilization step you have to take.

Hey boys. I have a horror story for you as well as a few questions.

The following two images I will post are from my first auto grow. Before I ask my question let me tell you my story.
>Decide to grow ILMG NL auto.
>Initially an outdoor grow.
>This is a mistake. My seedling gets stunted, but still looks healthy overall.
>She stays out for 2 weeks, make sure to keep her in the greenhouse when it rains.
>Decide to get a grow tent and move her inside.
>Despite being stunted the plant looks very healthy.
>A few days after moving in the tent, I notice pests on the leaves.
>Turns out to be whiteflies and spidermites.
>Spray the FUCK out of her with some neem oil.
>After a few weeks of application, completely destroy the pests.
>However, there is a new problem.
>She must have contracted Leaf Septoria while growing outside.
>She is stunted and now has Septoria. Couldn't get rid of it via pruning.
>Resign myself to a small harvest. At this point she is about 4 weeks in.
>Feed her some Bloom nutes a few times. No big issues or signs of nute burn.
>Week 7 I feed her some bloom nutes.
>Next day the leaves towards the top of the canopy are turning yellow and there are brown spots all over them.
>It's not septoria, can't diagnose the issue since there is so much wrong already.

It is week 8 now and I want die. I am so close and I'm not sure she will make it. My question is this; what the fuck is going on here? This image shows the canopy and it looks like a possible (P) deficiency, however I have no idea. My thoughts were that my soil was too hot, therefore suffering from nute burn or lockout. I tested my runoff today and I'm getting 6.7 PH and 750ppm, so it shouldn't be burn.

I mostly work with rock dusts and wood ash for micronutrients, adding a little good biologically active compost might also help. Calcium is not a mobile nutrient though, so affected leaves will probably not recover.
