I am getting a good crop from the Red Boy

I have taken pics of the grow as I picked over 3 days.

The big shrooms in each picture were picked,

so the following pictures show previously small shrooms that got bigger.

Red Boy 31Jul2019 (1).jpg Red Boy 31Jul2019 (2).jpg Red Boy 31Jul2019 (3).jpg Red Boy 31Jul2019 (4).jpg

 

I picked almost all of it.

I will dunk tomorrow night.

I think the contaminated cakes are going to die.

I am going to eject them tomorrow.

The cakes got an 18 hour dunk in well aged local tap water that is saturated with calcium sulfate.

The partial cakes were in good shape,

so I re-cased them along with the rest.

All of the cakes looks great,

with only a small amount of blueing.

Oops, I posted this originally in my Durban Poison thread.

 

The cakes are popping.

I got a couple of prints.  I smudged one, damn it was pretty.

 

Red Boy 6AUG19 (4).jpg

I prepped the prints by:

 

Washing hands with 50% isopropyl alcohol.

Rip out 3" of aluminum foil.

Wipe down the table top with 91% iso.

Wipe down both sides of foil with 91% iso.

Cut a piece a foil wide enough to fold in half and fit the zip bag.

Fold the foil and trim.

Place the foil on the table.

 

Place a freshly cut cap on the foil.

Place two bamboo skewers(91% iso-ed).

Place a 91% iso-ed bowl over the whole thing.

Two days later I put the print in the bag.

I used a pair of long, needle nosed pliers, iso-ed too.

 

Here are the pickings from dunk #1

I picked most of dunk #2 yesterday.  Here is what it looked like before I picked.

I think I might have gotten more from dunk #2 than from dunk #1.  Red Boy rocks.

I will finish picking the cakes tomorrow and dunk one more time.

This is the pickings from dunk #2.

I must have done a good enough cleanup of the messed up cakes.

Those cakes are producing and looking white.

I dunked the cakes a 3rd time.  I put them out to fruit.

I got a lot of mushrooms off the cakes before dunking too.

The harvest from dunk #2 was great.

Today, I picked the biggest ones.

I think I am on target to get 10g of Red Boys per cake.

Holy humidity! The fuzz on some of those cakes was impressive! Are you going to clone any of those fruits?

I am a bit slow to post.

Here is the last flush before I picked it clean.

This is what dunk #3 produced.

It is still wet so it is going to do some shriveling.

Still, I am totally amazed that it produced so well.

The cakes are shriveled up too, very small compared to the jars.

I am dunking them now for the fourth time.

I do not expect much, if anything.

 

Thanks for following the thread.

I have not done any mushroom cloning yet. 

I kicked around the idea, but I have to get an agar-agar/petri dish setup put together.

One of these grows I will have to give it a try.

That is if I identify a good candidate to clone.

 

What would be fun would be to get an outdoor plot of straw going.

I have been reading "Magic for the Masses" and

I am thinking that I might know why my mushrooms didn't seem to have any potency.

 

I have not been actively drying the mushrooms out.

No fan, no desiccant.  I even had some shrooms mold in the pile.

 

This time I have been keeping the crop on paper towels.

I have been moving them around at least once a day.

The wetness went away quickly this time.

 

My bagged shrooms from the first 2 dunks have not lost any more weight.

I hope they are dry enough to store stably.

 

My old inventory may be crap,

my poor Burma crop was probably totally ruined by bad handling.

 

So... how much potency have I already lost in my current grow?

You can sterlize on of your choice specimens, and cut into it in aseptic environment and drop it in grain to clone as well. It will be more susceptible to contamination, and will only get you so far but I did it successfully before I jumped into agar.

Potency for what we know now should only be based on genetics, unless you for instanced dried them out in a heater or oven at temps higher than 160* I believe. Freshness will not alter the potency but you will need to differentiate the doses. For example the going theory being 10% water weight. 10 grams of wet fresh mushrooms being equal to 1 gram dry.

I am slow to post again.  My last dunk finished off the cakes.

All together, this grow produced

 

88.5g of dry Red Boys.

 

Given 7 whole cakes and two partial cakes made for another 1 cake, perhaps a little more.

So I got 10g per cake.  This is the same as what I estimated I got the last time.

 

***  P O T E N C Y   R E P O R T  ***

 

Labor Day Sunday I tried some of my grow.

I weighed out 6g of dry Red Boys.

I ground them up in my Krupp coffee grinder.

I wish I thought that smelled good.

 

I put the shrooms in deep bowl.

I squeezed a whole lemon from my Meyer tree over the shroom.

This was enough juice to make a sopping mess.

I let it steep for around 20 minutes.

 

I then poured close to a pint of almost boiling water into the bowl.

I gave the tea a good stir from time to time as it cooled.

 

Around 30 minutes later I poured the tea through an old coffee filter screen.

I collected the filtrate into a large mug.

I added 2 tablespoons of frozen orange concentrate.

 

At 2PM I went out into the garden and sat mostly inside my avocado tree.

While watching my Durban Poison Grow, I pounded the Red Boy tea.

30 minutes I could feel it coming on.

3PM the shrooms were kicking in.

4PM I had to lie down.  I was yawning a lot.

5PM I went back outside.

6PM the shrooms were beginning to fizzle.

7PM the ride was over.

 

So this batch of shrooms works.
