Looks like they provided you with a good isolate.

Nice job! Have fun with those.

Holy sh*t.... i just had this experience... and i still have it (took it 5h ago and its still intense). I had really big luck that my trip sitter was the best buddy i ever met :D perfect music changing, was listening and trying to understand. Its insane, im still on that "phase" ? :D

I took 1.2g then after 40 min next 2grams. After 20-30 min i took next 2 (5 in total) and in one moment i got "HIT" and it started :D best day ever

5 g dry for the first go round?
Enjoy your ride and hold on to the seat!

Having a sitter was a good move.

I'm glad to hear you have a positive experience in both your grow and trip!
Your second wave looks like another success.

Impressive first time grow!

Pick them all and go for round 3!

 

Even those little buggers have caps and will just abort if you don't take them.

Much less chance of contams if you clean all of them off.

Nice job!

 

I've saved and collected small packs / barrels of desiccant from medicine, electronics, etc. stored them in sealed container to use later.

For long term mushroom storage I like to drop one in the storage container / bag and keep them in a cool place.

 

Looking forward to seeing that 3rd flush!

Its my 3rd wave. (2-3 days after first pins showed up). Shrooms are much thicker than in previous waves. I hope everything will be allright with them

As the flushes progress its completely normal for the fruits to grow bigger and in less numbers.

That looks fine from here :) Keep up the good work.

I started out with exactly one of these from kits to get a feel of the growing process, try the shrooms and got hooked on the process. Got to 7 flushes if I remember correctly, but the last 4 were small harvests..

These kits use the PF TEK if I'm not mistaken, I unknowingly tried to replicate the kit using rye, but had not much succes..

Are you planning to do your own grow in the future?

Nope ;P When i will finish with this growkit i will probably have like +/- 15 portions of shrooms (3g per one). If i would like to grow more i will buy another kit (it costs like 50$ per one).

I totally get why youd go that route, and 50$ doesnt seem like much, but you can replicate that entire kit, if you save the heating pad, for 10 to 15$, and have enough material for a few dozen grows. That bag is reusable, too.

It's especially easy if you have a spare pressure cooker or autoclave laying around.

You dont even need to get spores, you can print your own, or clones some material from your current fruits. It's easier than youd imagine if you change your mind, and we're all here to help.
