tweex, are you speaking about after the dunk? dunno really, i just put it back in the tub and keep it nice and humid in there with some plastic draped over it.

to be honest i never even read about rolling it in verm, if i had i may have done it. but it never even occured to me to try it.

yeah, it just kinda occured to me as well. I was looking at the beautiful pics on your log and I thought that maybe you'd get some huge fruits if you rolled that thing in verm. Wow... could you imagine?

***update***

my logs were taking forever
so i said
fark it
i want to try the LB tek anyway
so i broke them up
did a rez effect thing with them
by adding wet verm to the whole mix of broken logs
packed them down nice and tight
added my verm/peatmoss/crushed oyster shell/lime casing

and about a week later
here i have a pin
there are like two other pins that i saw creeping out the sides
hopefullly there are more under that casing
and more will come out of the sides

if not no biggie
the way i see it is
if i had thrown those logs away i would have NONE
so these are all extras

Upload
Upload


id like to add that i really manhandled these logs while dunking. i squished them into a pc with bleachwater and ice
i then crushed the lid down onto the top of the bigger log.

i then had them sitting in the chamber and nothing was happening

so i broke them up by hand. now the nugget felt a lil dry..but the big log felt more squishy, kinda like a very very very damp sponge.

i crushed them both up..mixed them around ...added some wet verm...mixed it with it..

this TC is very slow in general for me
so i dont know when the next update will be
but when i have it ill def post it
myco outttt

'extras' are always nice.
tc is known to be a bit slow
and not just for you.


Namaste

this is proof that you can bleachdip/dunk strawlogs and not only reuse them
but bust the to bloody hell and crush them down into a dollar store basket
and if given enough care, they will not only recoup (even though it took a fraggin month)
but they will give you some lovely extras


thats amazing

arkived* awesome
wouldnt be right
without a flush picture or two:

Upload

ideally i would have liked to have waited at least till tonight to have harvested them, allowing the groupings on the left side to mature a little more.

but being as though they were ALMOST there, and because of other things that i have to take care of in the next few days, i knew that now was really the only ideal time that i had.

so i plucked them all out, making sure to dig out any of the stems that may have been left behind under the casing material. (i used a fairly thick casing layer, it is about 1 1/2- 2 inches in depth.) i also harvest any of the smaller pins or lil guys that just dont appear to be growing. i personally like to do this so they dont abort or rot under my casing without me knowing.

Upload
i then nuke some already prepared casing material for five minutes, patch any and all holes in the casing and low divits. and then i mist the hell out of the casing layer. i drench the layer to the point of small puddles about the size of a quarter forming. i then use an alky wiped fork and fluff the casing layer back up. this does a few things. ONE it helps the moisture get to the myc quicker when im moving the layer around. TWO, i lightly scratch the myc allowing moisture into the creveases, and THREE, it stops my layer from being matted. allowing a nice airy fluffy layer for the myc to push through.

oh...remember the first pin i showed you. the lil scout before the calvary?

hes all grown up now:

now the bigguy above is SOLID, i split him down the middle twice to help drying.

the bigger section of the LBasket that you see has already opened caps were 3/4 solid, with the stems slightly hollowing as you gradually got farther away from the base of the mushroom. (pretty common ime)
the patches of unopened capped guys that i didnt have a chance to wait for are fairly hollow. not extreme, but far from solid.

they LB was bought at a dollar store and originally had handles that i just took off....the spawn layer isnt really that thick at all. maybe a few inches TOPS.

so the harvesting, patching, and misting are done
and the LB is back in the chamber.

if i had tossed these two nuggets i would have never had recieved all these nice extras.
must be a gift for the holidays
:P
