Ill post more pics tomorrow at the latest....i've already taken a few that need to be uploaded.

Thanks Hip, I'll try to do an air exchange as you described with the GT bag.

Is the spawn bag the one that wasnt colonized or the fruiting sandbag the one that wasnt fully colonized? Ive personaly never had a sandbag take more than 8 days to be completly rhyzomorphic.

I think Hips method above of inflating bags is intended for spawn bags which are sealed. To "air out" a sandbag all you would have to do is unclip the top and open the bag, but I've never seen a reason to do this, especialy with the fan going.

Looking back at your pics the only other thing I can think of is that next time or even this time as its never to late, you could make one of the long sides row of polyfil a good 10" higher on the bag than that. That way you have one low side of polyfil and one high side , same one the end polyfil plugs. My theory is this creates a better "fresh in/stale out" airflow and its how my friend does all of his bags. Just a little tip from seeing a bunch of these done now. It also keeps 50% of the polyfil from touching fruits, which is 50% less work later.

Wheres the pics....

Yes I am talking about the fruiting bags Sandman......maybe it wasn't noticed in the TEK but the fan was never blowing during the colonization period.....the fan was added only at the time of the fruiting initialization.

It makes sense that the air was probably not exchanged very well due to this oversight.

no, that is the way they are done. No air at all for the 6-7 day colonization, then hit em with fans and light.

Than my FOAF simply needs to add more polyfil area or exchange the air as Hippie suggested during the colonization period.

I've got some new pics that I will upload tonight. The EQ and Cambo bags have pinned nicely and there are a lot of little bastards heading skyward!

The GT bag air was exchanged and put back in the dark to see if it would colonize more before fruiting continued.

Thanks guys! I really appreciate all of the advice and feedback. This was without a doubt a great experience for a first time grower.

First time growers who want to find success right away, this is the TEK for you! And anyone who hasn't tried this TEK needs to experience it.

Very Exciting and Rewarding!!

Will post more pics on Wed night.....stay tuned.

Let me start by saying......GOD BLESS YOU HIPPIE & SANDMAN:bow:

I want to let the pics tell the story, but all I can say is WOW!!.

In only 3 months time it's hard to believe....and beautiful to see what somebody with zero experience & knowledge in mycology can accomplish with the help of this website. The Almighty Hippie & everyone here willing to share this knowledge selflessly, combined with Mycrotopia's amazing products and Sandmans brilliant TEK.

In the time frame of approximately 36 hours from the last pics that I posted, I was not at all prepared for what I found. If I would have been home at the right time, I would have harvested these earlier. Unbelievable.

Very nice. I got a tear in my eye over here.

Sandbags always tend to come on looking much weaker then they finish out. And boy can they turn black!

I would have to say that is the biggest first flush of a first time grow I've seen since I've been here. Congrats, and well done friend.:bow:

Sandbags are for real.....Im sure that other TEKs will be explored, but how the hell do you top this? Seriously?

The black is curious Sandman......what do you know about this? I'm pretty sure that light exposure near the end of the fruiting explosion has something to do with the cause of it, but do you think there is anything gained or lost by this?

Also, what's the general consensus on allowing the spores to drop as far as potency affects?

Hippie........Thanks for the pic nomination! Here's some more.
