this is my first grow, and these are my first pics of colonizing rye flour and verm PF TEK cakes. The same jar, the same location....this is the most advanced jar, 5 others are variously lesser colonized. looks like I am having good growth?? any comments welcomed. :thumbdown: OR :eusa_danc :eusa_danc

hello everyone...just thought I would post my progression since preparing the jars, their inoculation, and their full colonization. I will now wait a day or two for the centers to colonize, and then dunk them for 12-18 hours, and place in the fruting chamber. I have been toying with the idea of possibly crumbling and casing a couple of them, just to see, but I haven't made that decision as yet. But in the meantime, have been blessed with some good luck and a lot of helpful advice!:hippie: off to the races.....yeehhaaawwww! :dance: ...:teeth:

thaks everyone for your comments...aprreciate the positive feedback.

Re: Rez Tek, not familiar with that but will certainly look into it.

Re; DE casing....I had thought that I would do the dunk and roll, assuming that is a similar approach?

Thanks again, and I'll keep posting pics as there is sumthin interesting to show

dunk and roll are not substitutes for a double end casing
think of them as 'extra'
and do all three

thanks Hippie3. Luv ur posts and advice....I will do that. I am also considering a variety of approaches, and would sincerely appreciate ur feedback. I have been thinking that I might birth, dunk, roll, DC and place in fruiting chamber 2 cakes, and crumble/case 2, and crumble/spawn 2. For case I was going to use verm/coir, and for spawn, verm/coir/worm castings?

A lot of my thoughts for this come from the fact that I think I under-measured the amount of rye flour....and I am worred about sufficient nuts for the flushes. If this is the case, then I should see an imporvment in yield from the spawning approach?

Again, thanks, and your continued advice is most appreciated.:eusa_pray

nutes are almost never 'insufficient',
water is a more relevant concern.

rye flour/verm cakes, dunked 24hrs, rolled and double end cased in dry verm, and into the PMP with perlite, two airstones, and aquarium heater. Temp 67F and rising (set for 70F), and RH 94% and rising. Guess we'll see where it goes from here.

Have to mention it again, that sweet frresh mushroom smell from those cakes is soooo tantilizing, I am soooo stoked!:dance:
