Thanks so much mikey. That's kind of what I figured and picked up on from what ive read, but it sure as hell helps to hear it from somebody with experience. I've seen ur name on quite a few different topics i feel like. Still amazes me how helpful and willing people are in this community to share what they know and help out the newbie like myself. So much different than the competitive kind of local scene that i was accustomed to from my days of growin plants.
Refreshing. I ended up "breaking down" and buying some perlite because 3 of my sample/experimental grain cakes that I cased were ready to put into fruiting (out of nowhere, almost overnight it seemed like). I didnt know if my set-up was THAT bad, so I didnt want to put all my eggs in one basket. The PF cakes still show just minimal knotting, seemed to have kinda of plateaued. The cased cakes though... After putting bubble wrap on em for a week or so after healthy myc growth... I saw my first pin w/ a tiny brown cap and all just over 72hrs ago. And today? I counted 49 more on just one of the 6x6" cakes! After two months, WAY more money than I planned on investing, and lots of self imposed stress, I feel like I can finally breathe.
I told myself that I was going to take it slow, just stick to the PFs to get my feet wet, and went in the complete opposite direction after I started to get so passionate about it. I started to do grains, G2G transfer, casing, multiple liquid culture experiments, etc... I suppose I now have something to pass on to anybody who might be in the same position as me when I got my first two spore syringes in the mail. Not much, but... If u have the patience I would stick to my original plan of getting to know the very simple basics before overwhelming urself. I know on a scale from 1-10 I'm only still like a 1.5 compared to most of the people here.
If u have the resources, a creative and curious mind, can tolerate a few let-downs without getting discouraged, and do your research, research, research though? I'm very very happy that I put this much on my plate. With hindsight of course hah. I feel like I've learned even more knowledge just from the bumps ive hit on the road than the most successful "only PF cakes" could've ever gave me. I'll be putting pictures up soon, I'm going to attempt my first clone tomorrow from one of the healthy looking younger fruits (thanks to what I learned from sidestreet, i believe it was, for his Magic of the Masses PDF and all of his resources. I HIGHLY recommend that read to anybody who still has more to learn btw.) I hope to become a familiar face and look forward to getting to know some like-minded people on here. I really cant wait to be able to give back to the community too, so freely like so many members on here. That reminds me also, and I'll end with this ha.
Is there a recommended place to donate a few bucks to the community? I feel like ive read somewhere that I can donate to this site directly, but I think i may be confused with another site. One that i no longer visit btw (not to hate on anybody else, but for me personally, I felt so much more welcome here. And literally the day or the day after i joined too.) Thanks again, to EVERYBODY!!

Wow... My gf says i write "novels" when i text her sometimes hah. The above doesnt help my if i were to try and defend myself against that accusation on here haha. Still riding the natural high of seeing my first babies poke through
man hoss your gf aint joking LOL.
i see you have gone the perlite route but i was just wondering how you had the humidifier set up to humidify the cakes. I could not really tell and keep wondering so i decided to ask.

Lol I got a chuckle on the “49 pins” comment. That definitely shows how passionate and excited you must be. Can’t wait to see the pics.
If you’re serious about donating please send me a PM and remind me, I will give the info on what to do. Nobody will let us have a Pay Now button anymore so the donate button doesn’t work.

I can't figure out how to upload pictures to this thread. Would anybody mind helping me out real quick please? I just took a few that should give a better understanding than my long winded rambles hah.
Hit the “More Reply Options” button at the bottom of the reply box, you should be able to figure it out from there.

Make sure you’re on Full Version and not the mobile skin from the very bottom of the screen.
