Update: Bulk grow seems to be going well. This is the big tub that is fruiting now. Can't wait to see how it flushes! 77b24f4966420d70a192d8a58c1b886a.jpg

Thanks everyone.

And, I used a 7 grain spawn bag. 1 bag for each tub. I was hoping it would produce.

Then used some supercharged horse manure in cahoots with the cow manure, i read 2 bags per tub, but said eh, lets try 1. See what happens. 1 is fruiting the other is not, yet. We will see. Ill post updates. Good or bad lol.

I would experiment with different harvesting methods as well, i had really good luck with a little snip of the myselium around the edges and then a twist and pull methos, leaves very little of the actual base of the mushroom behind to rot and be a possible source of contamination.

 

What is the yellow stuff in the tub?

Vermiculite. Help retain some moisture.

interesting did you sprinkle that on top or was it mixed in with the soil?

 

I have always mixed mine in and it never looked that color before but i have only ever used one kind.

I just sprinkled it on top. It come with my bulk grow. That's all I know about it as far as branding. They don't seem to mind it being in there. Haven't seen anything bad come from it yet either.

Just got home checked the smaller tub of the two. And ohh boy I was happy!!

My bigger tub did not produce anything like this. The size and quantity. Im wondering if it was due to the fact the smaller tub, the mycelium was a little deeper in the tub and it had a little more oxygen that yhe bigger one.

Only two things that are different that I can think of. afb7aa335e80c4e020a43298fcba7eff.jpg5cb64238b206806297c18104a2c87dce.jpg

That looks awesome!   This hobby has me hooked and I still haven't even seen any myc in my grain jars yet.  I'm following everyones advise and leaving that shit alone for now.  That second tub is making me drool a little bit.  Just a deeper substrate in a smaller tub huh?

Yep, I did jars as well and took everyones advice and stayed calm and tried not wigging. Same as this round. Im wondering if ill get anymore than 1 flush. Idk, we'll see.

The substrate was deeper yeah. And I had a little more oxygen for them. Left the lid with a 1/4" crack instead of sealed up. My tubs are in a room with very little disterbances so im not worried to much of contamination. But, never know, i may have did myself in.

We will see.

That's some nonsense that's been spread around for decades it seems(Almost 2 for me, Although I did fail at an Agar/Spore Homestead kit back in 97/98).  It's like Folk Lore and some old Wives tale or something... I've cut many a mushroom sub with no issues(clean fruits no torn up Sub and sometimes mushies are just on top of each other), PE is easy to pick usually without cutting(B+ maybe GT).  I've had future pins come on or right up against stubble and grow no problem.  Stagnant(sitting) water and or AIR will cause contamination, if your sub is 100% it's fairly tough to contaminate unless it's too wet and not enough air and TRICH is in your future. Too dry and it won't do anything but stall out on you.

Leftover mushroom flesh can and does rot and get nasty in the tub, I've only once seen primordia form on something I've left behind. YMMV.
