Nice job Arch3type!

Here is a tub that went into a shoebox dub on 10/14 and is starting to pin. I think I'm going to hook a aquarium pump set up to it for some FAE. I used Don Shadow's suplemented recipe but subbed powdered chicken feed for the oat bran. Don's awesome thread may be found here.

Hey all, just popping in to say hello and share a few pictures of a recent Ps. semperviva grow. I hope all's well!

 

 

This was grown in a martha greenhouse using the following substrate:

 

- 275g dry coir
- 50ml used coffee grounds

- 50ml rye grass seed
- 100ml grain flour or bran
- 100ml clean dry sand
- 25ml gypsum
- 25ml Calcium carbonate or CaCO3
- Approximately 1200ml reverse osmosis or distilled water

Fills about 4 quart jars packed loosely, or one 14A mycobag

 

Casing was 50:50 peat/verm with a little bit of sand and a generous amount of CaO3.

Now I remember why I saved all these coffee grounds  and bought RGS. Sweet just shook a few jars of semp and recovering pretty quickly.

I take it consolidation/fruiting is the longest part of the process?

Awesome Don, that's a form I'm searching for!

Here's some more of my tub. It turns out I harvested a few for prints way too early. I can see spores dropping now though, so the whole tub is getting cropped later.8bbac0aaef82234a7c91503e8da7e6fa.jpga3dbb0fc36954f20591fd0b5a35bf309.jpg

ItBeBasidia, that is legendary work, well done!

Semperviva is a very fast and aggressive colonizer. Pinning can take awhile depending on how long the tray is incubated and the fruiting environment. I unintentionally incubated my tray for about 20 days, which is about a week longer than I normally would, and to my surprise it started fruiting about two days after I placed it in the martha (pins usually take two weeks!). The fruits themselves are slower growing than say, cubensis, maybe pin to spore in 10-14 days in my experience, a little faster maybe if the temperature is high. Still, every time I grow mushrooms I see them do things that I didn't expect. The tray was incubated at 77F and fruited around 75F.
