Nice. I always call those first ones ahead of the others over achievers, and clone them.

I have every intention of cloning and printing that tall one!

I've harvested 7 shrooms this morning, threw one out because the top got slilmy and runny, sacrificed one to spore print, and the other 5 are drying. I did take tissue from the first to ripen and have it on agar now. 

I'm looking forward to this weekend, if all goes well it will be my first session in about 25 years! And, if all goes well, my wife will join me next weekend for the next one!

Well, three hours after eating one of my shrooms, I wish I'd eaten at least two. Other than the initial onset, it's been a rather underwhelming experience. I really have to look hard to realize there is anything. I was hoping to sit down at the piano and have an awesome inspired session, instead I'm not even in the mood to play.  The one high point is that my wife is in high tech sales and has a VR headset unit, which I spent about an hour wearing. It has a roller coaster video which is enjoyable under normal circumstances, it definitely felt significantly more immersive today than it usually does.

I think next time I need at least three shrooms to get what I was hoping to. Live and learn!

Also remember that having food in the stomach can reduce effects, fasting before hand makes for a slightly faster onset and stronger effects. If I take less than 2.5 grams(dry) I get a frustrating threshold level trip, where I find myself trying, even straining to feel effects and see visuals. I go for at least 3 grams when I want to trip, and at least 4g when I really want it, that's just me though.

I didn't weigh it, but I don't think I'm too far off when I guess that it was about 1.5 gram or so. Since it's been a couple decades since I've taken any I went for caution, and my wife was using me for a guinea pig so she wouldn't overdo it when she tries them. It's been about just as long for her, so I really felt the need not to scare her out of it. 

I did finally drag myself to the piano and played a really long version of November Rain, so it wasn't a total loss, but I think next weekend I'm shooting for 3-4 grams!  My stomach was mostly empty, all I'd eaten this morning was a bit of almond butter on a couple of crackers, and that was about two hours before I ate the shroom.

Cool. FYI, 4 grams for me is quite a bit heavier than 3 grams. If I were you, having not had a proper trip in a while, i'd go for 3 to start. You can take more if needed, just wait like an hour to be sure more is needed, you can't un-do it once you've dosed lol. If your first dose is not sufficient, try another .5-1 gram. One thing that seems to bring out the visual effects for me is to be out in nature. sometimes being trapped in the house can make for a frustrating trip, being in nature usually feels perfect on 3.5g IME.

Are you talking wet wieght or cracker dry. Fresh mushroom you're going to need 20 grams. Kinda dry, is hard to dose. Leathery mushrooms, that you can bend and twist without breaking aren't dry yet, can easily need twice the dry dose.

Well, I was hoping to trip this morning, but had a catastrophic equipment failure in the household and needed my mind intact to fix it. Now that it's been handled, I'm trying to get my mindset right to work the original plan, hopefully that can still happen. I was really looking forward to it, so we shall see how the rest of the morning flows.

With the “cheats” did it prevent from producing a nice even flush that was harvested at the same time?From my understanding you want to harvest all in one go right?

If I have like half of the flush or more ripening at once I'll pick the sub clean, but some strains/substrains flushes' fruits will ripen at all different times, so for those I like to get them each at their best time, as the veil starts to tear.

 

For some strains, the caps will open on the biggest/most mature fruits, and once those open, it seems like all the smaller fruits/pins will open right away, some seeming premature. With those strains it seems better to pick everything. It also just depends on what you like to do.

I think it probably did cause a smaller flush, but I'm not really growing for optimal volume right now. I did not allow cheats on my first two cakes, and they got high count flushes of small shrooms. The next two did have cheats, which developed to a nice size, but only about 7 shrooms on each. All my cakes have been cleaned and bagged, and are in the refrigerator because I'm away from home for about a week and a half. When I get home, I'll soak them all and set back up, we'll see how it goes from there.

Sometimes later flushes will put out fewer but bigger fruits than the first couple flushes..
