Puerto - Myco Bags*completed*
12/29/01 03:37 AM

- 12/20 - 1 Puerto Rican syringe and 4 Myco Environment Bags were ordered from

- 12/26 - Recieved the syringe.

12/28 - Recieved the Myco Bags.

--- On each bag a small insertion area was wiped with an alcohol soaked cotton ball.

--- Each bag was inoculated with around 2.5 cc´s of spore solution after the syringe needle was wiped with the cotton ball.

---All needle holes where covered with scotch tape.

--- Bags were gently shaken to mix the spore solution throughout the media.

--- Bags were placed back in the shipping box and put in a dark/warm place.

- 1/5 -
All bags show good signs of growth and no contams. 2 are doing better than the other 2 but all look great. I need to raise the temperature some and I´m sure they will do even better. Sorry for the lack of quality in the pictures.

It looks a lot better than it looks in the pictures. I´m very happy with them so far.

Here are mine on 1/13

c0wb0yfr0mh3ll, those bags look pretty good, but it doesn´t look like you are mixing them at all. Try breaking up the colonized mycelium and gently shake it around to mix with the stuff on the bottom. Just take care not to rupture the bag or dislodge your tape. I think you will be suprised at how quickly they will finish up.

Bags are fully colonized on 1-19.

I´m going to start giving them light now.

You don´t fan the bags man. They are sealed.

Here are some more pictures. It´s hard to get a shot of all the pins because of the mycelium growing on the sides of the bags.

There is a large mushroom on the right of this picture. }

Most pins seem to be growing upwards but this one is going down for some reason. This bag has the most pins.

There are actually a couple pins growing directly off the mycelium on the walls of the bag... Damn Puerto strain is a strong grower!
Two of the bags have a couple of early bird fruits ready to be picked. The other two have a more even pinset and should be ready for harvest soon.

Yes I know they are a little premature, I´ve always harvested late so I was going for someting different this time

3 bags have more to be picked: 2 are first flush and 1 is second flush.

This is the second flush bag:

These are the first flush bags:

You can expect 3-4 flushes depending on strain. Most of the weight is in the first 2 flushes.

To clarify: The bags are prefilled, sterilized and sealed. Inoculation is through the bag with a syringe and then taped closed. The empty bags are standard filter patch mushroom cultivation bags found at most mushroom cultivation equipment suppliers. They are not available at Walmart or other similar stores, they are a specilized item. You might be able to modify oven bags to work, but they don´t have a filter patch and are of a thinner material.

In order to make your own self contained myco-bags you should have a pressure cooker, autoclavable filter patch bags, impulse sealer, substrate and a Hepa filtered work area to seal the bags after sterilization.
