Beautiful. Do us a favor and take a pic of those stumps after a few days? It would really help with the whole cutting vs twist n pull deal.

Nice, although it does look like the places where the stumps were didnt pin.

On the bright side it doesnt look like they're blue mush either. Interesting.

Keep em coming :)

After floating and grabbing the 2nd flush, I've determined that using a scalpel is a bit tedious. Pulling by hand looks like a winner. Also an impressive amount of side and even bottom pinning (didn't use the plastic liner technique). I think I started with the coir on the dry side and it shrunk as a consequence.

Either way you cut it, harvesting a dense flush is a bit tedious no matter how you do it ;)

So score one for the "twist & pull" team?

First two flushes (dried) about 110g. That should hold me for a few years.

Haha, if your anything like me, you might be surprized how quick your stash can dwindle. I give a lot away, after the holidays I was down to like 10-15 grams and had none fruiting at the time, so I panicked and started a bunch of jars, vowed to never run that low again haha.

Great yield! Start some more . . .

 

Share!! Give it away! Spread the news about the safety and utility of the psychedelics. Teach people how to grow. Give folks a small in-vitro bag already noc'd up and growing myc well. All they have to do is watch it and harvest. That gets them really interested in the process with a healthy respect for the fungal kingdom.

 

Here is a great summary of a few parts of Pollan's book "Change your mind". It's required reading for anyone I share with.

Yeah, great book. I then read his prior book, Omnivore's Dilemma. Also highly recommend. Everyone should read. Explains why we has such horrible food, how we got here. As you read you can just see your tax dollars being shelled out for political gain that incrementally has destroyed the production of healthy food products. Pollan - great author and very level headed. It's not like 'don't eat meat' or 'don't do this or that'. It's about "how the heck did we get into this mess?".

 

So glad I discovered Change Your Mind. It was so good that I read Omnivore, having heard of it long ago.

I agree w/ all of this. 

 

Sorry to step on your thread spakk.

 

I dig your agar work friend.  I sampled some stipe from my KSSS grow to agar and it's coming along nicely. 

 

I hope it performs as well as yours.
