This is my first true grow. I started with LC purchased online. Grew it out on grain in quart jars then transfered to bulk pellets I pasturized last weekend. 108c51ba4d838308e36e18981f1c6d3a.jpg048b772e148ea86340f0ffedab3f83e4.jpg4fe882b008311b0b03e2c5ed102f1b5f.jpg7965a04f8a5f155f7a69241aa74ed977.jpg

As this will be my first grow I am trying to figure out how I will fruit my blocks. I have purchased a large tub identical to my SAB and was thinking of getting fancy with a ultra sonic humidifier I own.

 

What should I do for my first fruiting?

Oysters are super easy. They love lots of air and are forgiving to a certain degree on less than optimal humidity. I would not recommend  confining them in a tub like you see the psilocybe growers doing. Not saying my way is the best practice, But I grow oysters in the garage with a a few heavy misting a day. I give blocks away as gifts and my friends fruit them on their kitchen counter with minimal care and they do awesome. If you smother them with love, they tend to stunt their growth producing short stem with even smaller caps. After dense colonization, soaking the the block in cool water for about a day will be more beneficial than any fancy set will get you. If you have an ultrasonic then put your soaked bag on a shelf with the humidifier nearby, cut some slits in the bag and let them do their thing. Soak and repeat. Mist them when you check on then as long as it not every five minutes. Oh yeah and I almost forgot, wait to start the fruiting process after you see the plastic start pulling away from the blocks. Should be past white and starting to dull in color.

That sounds like a good plan. I will do that.

Looks like it's early PINS and looks to be ready to fruit.  The block is just waiting on You.

Always the BEST when you harvest your block, it's VICTORY!  Nice Job!

 

 Regarding your harvest issues, and I say this for the future of your projects, EASE up on opening the block that much(No judgement... just Analysis), a few slices here and there is all you need and your block won't dry out(too fast).  You will be able to get 3-5 flushes NO problem with a block that Size.  As you stated though, the process WORKS and IT sure does.  I do supplemented blocks(sterilized) with a HIGH success Rate in the 5-6 pound range in a SAB... not the easiest and a bit cumbersome in a Big Tote, but once you get it, ALL worth it in the end... Results.  All that being Said, SUCCESS... None the Less.  Nice Work and experiments are how we Perfect our Craft.   :thumbs_up:

Yeah I think I jumped the gun on this one. My other 2 bags are looking more populated. I wanted some for Thanksgiving gravy so I got what I got.06c9f10c70a2133c4a70d4f17bf5b518.jpg

So I taped my bag closed and cut the bottom of it and flipped it upside down. I have my martha tent setup now so I put the bag in there Sunday to see if it would give me some better results. Lets just say its looking very promising at this point.

Second Picture is of another bag I also cut. It also looks much better. I made sure to not pull the plastic back on it as I did the first and its looking allot more promising than the first bag did.

Oh yeah, looking REAL nice Right Der.  I have one Pink block JUST starting to show Pins.  You should get at least 3 Flushes minimum.  Oysters are Givers.

Yeah. This fruiting tent is not disappointing. My second flush is looking much better than my first without the grow tent.

Yeah man, you are dialing those in REAL nice.  They look healthy and happy with the environment.  The Pink Oysters aren't as finicky as the Blues either.  Nice job, I warn you, this is ADDICTING.   :tongue:

Went to go get my last pink bag after making soup and it decided to get a head start through the filter patch. Luckily I double bagged that one.b9aa36d87b6ac421defa583571470b0d.jpg2b03e93696b9a7f6dcee3c7c0b65ec6f.jpg

Those look SOOO good. I loved the pinks over the blues and golden ones I did. So tender and tasty. The blue ones were very chewey towards the bottom to the point of being almost unedible, and I hated to just throw that part away. The smaller ones were fine, but the big fat ones had that problem. 

 

Job well done!
