I have never gotten spawn jars done so quick! For my next round, one week after inoculating the spawn jars are fully colonized and I just spawned the same two varieties as before to 11-liter tubs.

 

Decided not to mod anything on the tubs, we'll see how that goes. The boxes aren't air tight anyway and flipping the lids will do for ' fruiting conditions'. When the mushrooms need extra room in the final few days I have a few extra tubs to do a dub tub.

Here is how my second round of Colombian is doing. I like it.

I start to see the mycelium bruise quite a bit here and there these last few days. Anyone care to share what they think is going on there? Is it drying out or am I misting too much perhaps? (Doing that once or twice a day) or is there nothing wrong? The fruits seem to be doing alright.

 

Just got a humidifier to bring up humidity in my room a bit, that might be as helpful for me as for the mushrooms.

 

Cheers!

My B+ was ready to harvest, the substrate covered in mushrooms, all very short - in between one and two inches.. I could fit the whole first flush except a few I picked yesterday and the day before in one tray of my dehydrator. Can you count how many?

It's a 100 grams of mushrooms in there. Was a lot of work to harvest. I have one more grow set up with B+ after which I will probably not grow them again any time soon. The genetics are not what I was hoping for.

 

The yield was about twice as much as last time, which seems to make sense since I used twice as much spawn. The last one didn't yield more than half a gram on the second flush so I trashed that one. Hope this one will give a better second flush. This time, no dunk.

 

This B+ flush was actually my best yield so far, although it didn't look it. 14 grams dry.

Colombian looks good... All those shrooms were only 14g dry? that looks like way more!

They were so small.. but denser than some other flushes I have gotten which most of the times translate to less than or about 1/10 in weight. The tray was about the size of an A4 sized piece of paper. Might help for reference.

 

Small shrooms are nice for drying and packaging. Tomorrow I'll get a vacuum sealer so I can keep them fresh from now on. Packed per 5 gram.

I've also been getting about 9-10% dry weight from my harvests. They are small, but they all look really good.

Alright, my second grow of Colombian is dehydrating now. There were so many clusters on this one that they were hard to harvest. But it was fun!

 

As I expected from several improvements comparing it to my first grow - more and better spawn, higher spawn to bulk ratio, more fresh air and misting - the yield was quite a bit higher for this first flush.

 

Last grow the first flush got me about a 100 gram - now I took 160 grams off of the substrate. (edit: 23 grams dry!)

 

Here are some pictures:

There were a few big ones in the middle of some clusters. I took one clone of those yesterday and two today right before harvesting the rest. I have 5 clones now on this variety. I think that is enough for now, to start doing some tests as soon as they are done.

Have prepped 12 jars of rye to get on some other varieties now. I altered the way I prepped the rye a little bit. I still soak for 24 hours, starting out with hot water (60°C/140°F) that I replace a few hours in. After the 24 hours are over I boil for 5 minutes now, in stead of 10 like I did before. I still like the effect boiling the grain has on how I can dry them off by steaming. That's basically all I do it for now, the grains are pretty much hydrated after my soak - and endospores have certainly started germinating by then.

 

I have decided to get the Golden Teacher and the Albino A+ out of the fridge. Curious about those. I have grown GT before, the AA+ is new to me. Should be exciting!
