have you grown mushrooms? are you going mushrooms at the moment? post your shit, i'm interested! i'm on my 4th or 5th grow now, had a bit of a hiatus/depressed laziness so this took a while to get going but anways...

i'll post a few pics of my project that i started on the 12th of this month (cambodian spore syringe i made from a print)

here's the pf cakes i made

here's some of them from the side, pretty good growth so far for 11 days (3 inoc holes)
sorry for the shitty camera flash

this one looked nice so i took a picture for you guys, dat rhizomorphic growth
i guess this will be some sort of a grow log for this project

and here's a WBS jar that i knocked up kind of as a joke/test to see if i get bacterial problems like almost everytime i do grains with spore syringes (not-so-clean inoculate obviously)
this will probably be done very soon, i'll make a GLC (grain liquid culture) from it and then spawn it to vermiculite/coir and put my SGFC which as been anxiously waiting in my closet for these exact moments

exciting times ahead! should probably order a digital scale soon
this the last picture for now, feel free to post your own (old or newer) grows

excellent news. getting your fungus started from a sport print is considered fairly hardcore, isn't it? i do all my mushroom collecting from wild sources, never grown them.

Getting spore prints is easy as fuck, really. Storing them is also easy. Getting the timing right is the hard part.

Anyone remotely interested in furthering their knowledge on shrooms should look up Willy Myco. His channel got deleted on youtube for obvious reasons, but all his info is fucking amazing, in-depth, and spot on. I think he moved to Vimeo since they are more lenient with what he posts.

on the video "DOES POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ENERGY EFFECT MYCELIUM?? MASARU EMOTO THEORY!", Ethan Williams asked:
"Very interesting, but wouldn't using the same live culture for each cake and cutting out the randomness of multi spore out of the equation be better??" Willy Myco replied:
"YES IT WOULD BUT I WAS JUST TESTING THE THEORY OF POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ENERGY AND HOW IT EFFECTS GROWTH. I WASN'T REALLY LOOKING FOR HUGE YEILDS OR ANYTHING, I JUST WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WERE ALL SUBJECT TO THE SAME CONDITIONS AND THE ONLY DIFFERENCE WAS NEG/POS ENERGY, WHAT WOULD BE THE OUTCOME.".
hes a real jersey bro dude

most of his videos on techniques seem like a nice introduction to visualize stuff. i still highly recommend thoroughly reading up on each technique or topic and not trusting every word of his.


>>146325
i guess it would be considered intermediate in difficulty if you do an agar cultivation first.
preparing a spore syringe is pretty simple if you trust the source of the spore print


>>146323
bacterial contamination on grain substrate doesnt have to be caused by a contaminated inoculant, grain can be a real bitch to sterilize. that glas looks pretty good though

alright, hello again people if anyone is still lurking! had some progress and took some pictures, have a look
here are some of those cakes i posted in this thread, the second post ones and they're almost done, few more days and then i can start counting down the consolidation days until fruiting

sorry for the blurry pics if such happen, my hands are shaky and fuck phones

and now we get to the real deal: my WBS jar that i posted here >>146323
it turned into two of these trays 2 days ago, i used coco coir + vermiculite that i sterilized (just in case)
next post, we'll have a peek...

i know you probably shouldn't disturb this thing too much and take peeks but just this once, not like it's not exposed to my filthy open air all the time since the foil isn't that snug

and about that grain liquid culture i talked about when starting this thread...
i made about 10ml of it from the fully colonized WBS jar and squirted that in to these 2 days ago
really shitty picture and i know it's hard to see but there are fuzzy white spots in all of then, 2 of them have bottoms colonizing pretty fast

if everything goes to plan and my shit wont get contaminated i will be rolling in cubensis, should order a scale soon
since i'm high and bored i'll do a quick calculation

19 pf cakes = around 3 grams per flush, after that 2-3 weaker flushes before mold/bacteria sets in (usually, i have once squeezed 5 flushes out of a cake but it was sad)
give or take that's 57 grams and at 8-10e/g it's 456 to 570 euros even though they all don't fruit at the same time

and then i have the 2 cocotrays which from past experiences yield something like 15-20g per flush, i have gotten 2-3 flushes out of those usually until i have to toss them away
soooo that's a good amount, i wonder what i should do with all that cash? been thinking about upgrading my pc
but maybe a better option would be buying some autoflower seeds, borrow my friends grow tent + ventilation/active charcoal shit and start growing my own weed? never done it and i have always wanted to, just couldn't be arsed to order things and do stuff, this mushroom grow took like 6-8 months to get started since i'm so lazy

but yeah sorry for the blogpost got a bit carried away there, will post when i make some more progress (probably with the trays)

I will admit he is kind of bro-ish, but the shit he cultivates and the rate of success he has with his techniques are spot on. His info hasn't done me wrong so far, and his instructional videos are what I'm looking for since 99% of shit on forums are half-statements since everyone tends to keep detailed info to themselves. I want to cultivate P. Cyan like he does, but it seems to be one of the more fickle types to get into due to the lower temps required for optimal growing conditions.

Can you grow mushrooms outside? We just had some trees removed and they ground up the stump and left a bunch of wood chips and I've already seen little mushrooms growing on them. I remembered I have a few spores I bought years ago that might still be good. Could I just lay out a bed of wood chips out in the woods behind my house and sprinkle the last of the spores on top?

Not reliably. I've seen fruits poking up in bulk growers waste dump areas occasionally though.

I just got into Agar myself. Bought to birth a WBS jar to coir, last grow I got 340 grams wet from 4 2 quart cakes. Hoping to keep it rolling.

i really cant agree with you on people keeping things to themselves, shroomery is a shitty website but the information is really good and solid if you gauge how trustworthy peeps are
>>146359
cubensis or some other species? depends on your climate and how much work/money youre willing to pump into a spot. i reckon it wouldnt be nearly as efficient as an indoor grow for cubensis but it should work

I was talking more about sites/forums other than shroomery. Should've stated that in my last post. It's one of the few places with a welcoming vibe for myco green horns.

lookin' good. are those pins or patches of verm on those cakes?
if youre lacking FC space you can always stack the cakes, the only downsides are that you have to be careful when fanning and you might get a few deformed fuckers. but youll get those from your trays on the second and third flush anways

just vermiculite, they were put in fruiting conditions 3 days ago
the trays were put there 13 days ago when they were been done colonizing for like 3-4 days max, now they look like this and just in time for the weekend!

oh and also talking about running out of space, i made these two yesterday, they are 3-4 liters ABOUT (the current fruiting trays were 1,5L i think)
also made 40ml more of dat grain liquid culture, gonna have to get me some more jars, renew the old filter lids on them and do my first monotub
if i had a drill i'd just make new shotgun fruiting chambers but no

i'll probably post the yield on the weekend when i harvest, if i can borrow a scale from somewhere (this time i wasn't prepared with that)

Hello fellow fungus friends
This is the thread I wanted

I have a jar of half colonized rye a bro gave me of oysters
I have this hypothesis that if I open it and induce fruiting
the shrooms will not only grow but also stimulate further colonization since it needs food
also I don't think contams of the uncolonized rye will be a problem because the rye itself is at the bottom of the jar
I think the colonized part is a healthy filter itself but
I will also cover the top with a polyfill lid till it starts fruiting
even though I've read its hard for substrate to get infected with anything once colonized

But the point is to see if I can increase the colonization speed, because fruits

yeah most common contams wont really take hold on mycellium
besides
oyster mushrooms are pretty darn fierce when it comes to beating contaminants, at least when compared to cubensis
but i highly doubt that youd speed up colonization this way. complete colonization is one of the strongest fruiting triggers. if you had multiple jars id say go for it and tesst your idea but since you only have one, youd have no idea wether or not it had any impact even if you should succeed

keep in mind that youll lose water if you leave the spawn exposed to the elements. i havent growm oysters indoors but i think youll need someway of maintaining a high RH% around the spawn
