Pin

Looks like you're going to have a pretty epic first flush on that tub. Looking forward to seeing pics again in 3 or 4 days when they're nice and fat

Ok cool. Yea jars on the side to learn is a good idea. And def right can’t hurt. I hope I got the moisture content right and I hope I put enough brf. Don’t want my little guys to starve.

Right on nocked. And yea it’s looking like it’s going to be a good one. But they are growing slow. Maybe a 3rd to half the size every 24 hours.

I didn’t follow the exact recipe because it didn’t work for me. Idk but I wasted bags of material and it didn’t work with the 2:1:1 recipes online. So I tweaked it. But I think I got it about right. Only time will tell right? But I thought it looked prity good. And stoner kid I buy bags too. I’m just kind of starting to do jars on the side. And it’s not super hard it just takes time. And I don’t have a pressure cooker either. What you do is get a big enough pot to fit the jar in and put a lid over, fill it up half with water and boil for 90 minutes. Just make sure the water isn’t a rolling boil and it’s controlled so it doesn’t reach the lid and you may have to Add more water halfway or 3/4 through boiling. I think I figured out how to do it and get the substrate the right moisture level and consistency. Stoner kid if you really want to know how to do some jars I can make a thread and tell you how I do it. Just let me know if you Want some help with it bud.

 

google "fractional sterilization" You are going to find yourself with more contamination than you will be happy with using your method but if you follow the guidelines for fractional sterilization, you will have much better success rates.

 

Or just spend the $150-200 you said you have to experiment with on a pressure cooker... You can get a presto for $65-80 or something like that on ebay or amazon

Slow is relative, they look like they have nearly doubled in size in 24 hours...

I wish we had an aware for most impatient... You would definitely win... It takes days from pin to full maturation and they often shoot up near the end.

The ended up REALLY small. I guess I just got bad genetics. It’s not about being impatient dude I’m just saying because I’m sitting here looking at them lol. I had a feeling they would be small.

look very similar to my GT first flush. Second flush was a little bigger but looks about right to me. Later flushes often produce less but larger mushrooms. What would be interesting is your total dry weight from your first flush.

Gts produce small to medium sized mushrooms almost always on the first flush.

Here's a first flush mushroom from my last gt grow

Does this tub look OK? I think it has been about a week since it started forming primordia. Hope it fruits. It’s APE by the way.

It looks fine... PE strains can sometimes take a really long time to fruit... Just FYI... Don't get all crazy on us if it doesn't fruit right away...

i think you damaged and disturbed the mycelium on top and bruise but it did however recover but maybe it would’ve done a lot better.. I only say this cause i did this with my cake and it fell and bruised and didn’t pin at all only 1 pin every flush..... but who knows.... but i think of i didn’t drop it and get it all bruised it would’ve done great... it looked perfect and better white. But u could be right also.... we must get to the bottom of this.... ahahaha jk but yeah * and i’m only talking about the first flush. Idk i thought mono tubes get way more. but who knows maybe next flush just blows everyone’s mind.

Just a heads up; It's not always the biggest fruit that is the best to clone.  You want one that is large but also has other large fruits in direct proximity (i.e., a healthy cluster).  If the biggest fruit is all by itself, it isn't a good sample.  You want big fruits in a solid cluster for cloning.
