Ok. All of this was innoculated on 10-21-18. 2 jars each of agar and BRF of 3 different strains.

 

First are the 2 jars of contams I got on agar. I believe it to be slime mold, but not sure. I lost one jar of Alacabenzi and one of God Seeker. So they have been discarded.

 

contams

 

Next is the Alacabenzi agar jar. The growth is rather slow. But at least there are no contams and nice fluffy myc.

 

alacabenzi 10 28 18
 
And the Alacabenzi BRF jars, which are showing much better growth than the agar jars.

The Golden Halo is growing strong and quickly. It's faster in the BRF, but the agar jars look nice as well. Much better than the Ala.

The BRF jars of GH are looking great!!! The red circle is showing the greatest myc growth of all the jars. I believe it to be the dominant strain in the jar, at least as of now.

 

golden halo BRF 10 28 18

 

The God Seeker agar jar that has survived is showing no signs of myc that I can see right now, but I'm holding out hope for it. The BRF jars are showing some growth. The jar on the left has a circle where the only myc growth I can see is (at least I'm hoping for it to be myc; it is fairly light and wispy). The other jar is starting to take off though :)

I'll make more updates as things progress and updates are needed ;)

Hopefully that will show you a better idea of how things might go for you Turdly. 3 different strains all at different stages. Some are more stubborn than others :deadhorse:  Just keep on going and give it a bit more time. If not, you can always try again at another point.

Two week update.

 

The Golden Halo are at 100%, just waiting for knotting/pinning.

 

golden halo 11 4 18

 

The God Seekers are about 25% and 50% respectively.

 

God seeker 11 4 18

 

The Alacabenzi are almost at 100%. So those will be a few days behind the Golden Halo I believe.

 

alacabenzi 11 4 18

 

And I should have posted this earlier, but this is a pic of my shmuv. I couldn't find any clear trash bags, so I made my own with plastic painter's drop "cloth"... It is way too big. Will definitely be looking a bit harder for clear trash bags :tongue:

 

shmuv

 

The agar jars have been put in the fridge until I can get some time to do some transfers, so no pics of those today, but they are all ready for it. Can't wait to get to that one, but I've been kinda lazy about it right now as I have the PF jars going nicely.

I haven't posted any updates in awhile, but things are looking good. Just waiting on the pin set in all of my jars. And other good news, the one agar jar I thought wouldn't produce anything finally has myc growing in it. Only took 3 weeks, lol. I'll try to get some pics this weekend as I do some agar transfers as well :)

Alright. Should have done this earlier, but here goes...

 

11-18-18

Noticed the very first pin growing in one of the Golden Halo jars :biggrin:. Although I wasn't able to dunk that night, I dunked it the next night. But during the night, another pin decided to give it a go as well, lol. So 2 pins before the first dunk. And here's a shot of the first pin :cool:

 

golden halo first Pin 11 18 18

 

So that was on a Monday I dunked, so Tuesday I got it set up in an one gallon ice cream tub FC. Use what you got, right? lol. It has about an inch of perlite in the bottom all nice and wet. Humidity is up, water along the sides at all times, no need for misting (I don't think?). Fanning twice a day, once when I wake up, once at bedtime. Light is on at night while I sleep. I'm using one of those $6 under-cabinet LED lights. Has two LEDs in it and runs on AA's. I just set it right on top of the tub lid. I also put the other Golden Halo jar in with it to go invitro. Kinda wanna see how that goes :tongue:.

 

Fast forward a week... Today.

THEY ARE POPPIN'!!!!!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: 2 or 3 new pins. One already has a nice brown top to it  :biggrin:. So, here those are...

 

golden halo pinset2 11 27 18
 
This one shows 2 of the new pins. One at the top of the cake towards the top of the pic and the other about 1/3 down the cake about 2/3 pic on the right. I believe that that side of the cake has a lot of knotting going on? All those little white dots, correct?
 
golden halo pinset1 11 27 18
 
In this pic, the one with the red circle is one of the 2 pins that were there before dunking. The other one fell off, but I saved it and put it in with the cake. Not sure what I expect with it, but whatever, lmao.

 

Now, I can't wait to see what this cake does in the next week, or however long it takes, lol. I'm so EXCITED! :biggrin: Very first boomers :biggrin:

 

With that said, Updates may be coming more regularly. Like possibly daily, lol.

Just wanted to add that when your cakes looked like yours, as in nicely hydrated and not shrinking before you took them out of the jar, a dunk isn't necessary before the first flush.

The pic with the pin in the jar shows no shrinkage, and there is plenty moisture on the jar itself.

Sometimes it's just a waste of a day, and you damage pins along the way. I never dunk before the first flush, unless they're obviously shriveled and shrunken.

Just some food for though for next time, and I am sure some people disagree, but for me the benefits of dunking before the 1st flush dont outweigh the negatives.

Eh, it's just another day. But thanks for the info. I'll keep it in mind.

What ever happened with people stacking cakes?

I remember it being a pretty useful method when space was low.

I had considered it. Chose not to. I have plenty of space for things

Took some pics last night of the Golden Halo cake I birthed/dunked last week. Pins are forming quite nicely. Can't wait to see the fruits of their labor :tongue:

And the 2 God Seeker cakes are recovering nicely. Hope to see pins on those as well soon.

Took some more pictures. Yesterday and this morning. Not a lot of difference in the pics I guess, but I'm showing them anyways, lol. I think there is about 15 hours-ish of time between the sets.

 

Here is a shot of the God Seekers in the FC.

I really love seeing the Rhizo growing off the side of that cake. Looks kinda crystallyish lol. New word for the week :tongue:

 

Question. The big mushie on the GH cake... When should I pick it? I don't see a veil on it as I can see the gills under the cap. Don't remember really seeing a veil on it???

I believe I'll wait a bit to see the cap really open up. I know there is debate on when to pick, potency and all that. But I'm just curious to see what you all think, lol. Just to start another debate :tongue: :deadhorse:

 

But anyways, that's it for the updates now. I have some things to do. Then I think I'll be making an LED setup that I can plug in instead of using the battery setup I am running currently. It's going through 4 AA's every few days, and I really don't feel like throwing that much money at batteries just to do this. Time to brush up on the electronics and get the soldering iron out :biggrin:

Forgot to add... The jar of Golden Halo I've left to go invitro has gotten a couple of pins on it :biggrin:  So it will continue until harvest time. Can't wait to see those shrooms, hehe.

Ok. A few days of updates in one go :)

 

Monday, only got one shot of the GH cake.

 

golden halo first flush 12 03 18
 
Tuesday, yesterday, I got a few pics. And I picked my first shroom!!! :biggrin: Along with the one big one, I picked the aborts off as well.
 

golden halo first flush 12 04 18 2

 

golden halo first flush 12 04 18 1

 

golden halo first boom 12 04 18
 
And shots from today. The cake is blueing quite noticeably. I'm thinking it may need a bit of misting. So I shall do that tonight when I fan the cake. And maybe that will help with the aborting as well. Think I made a mistake not putting verm on the top of that cake. I will put some on top with the second dunk which should allow me to go without the misting of the cake

Next update, I'll get a shot of the invitro jar. At last count, there were like 7 pins in it. This truly is an amazing hobby :biggrin:

The blueing will go away after a dunk and nice rest.

Yeah those rhizos are wicked. Colonized the plastic like its agar.

Yeah, that rhizo is freaking wicked. The spread on the lid was crazy as was the growth that stuck out almost half an inch from the cake.

Those 3 mushies were all I got from the first flush. I let it set 5 or 6 days after picking the last 2 and no new growth. So picked the aborts and dunked last night. It's back in its tub for the second flush.

The second set that went in, god seekers, are just now knotting nicely. Taken a while, but I believe that's because of the cakes not being 100% colonized when I dunked. It is definitely the slowest grower. We'll see what kind of flush they get.

The alacabenzi just set a pin on one of the cakes during the day today. Not sure about the knotting on it, but since one is pinning, hoping the other isn't too far behind. I'll try to get some pics of them tomorrow
