Not sure what you mean... Mushrooms tear through this stuff. I have seen other grows with bagged composts and have seen very mixed results. This particular brand really works well for me.


Yeah, it really comes down to the company. Many are just plain useless while others work. How well its composted, composition, ingredients, etc. Many variables with bagged.

Congrats on another stellar grow, doobs! :loveeyes:

I've seen the B+ grow on many many things. They were the first strain I ever worked with several years ago. I did them on cakes then, but since, I've seen them perform amazing on compost and have seen some true B+ beasts! I'm very excited and happy about this project. :pirate: :greenboun :cacti:

Thanks. That's why I posted the exact compost I'm using... The stuff is amazing. Mycobri said he's been using it with great results as well. It seems to be the "good shit" lol.

Perhaps.. it is also closer to the room fan ;) hehe It's not laggin much though, a day if that, but a slight bit. Maybe more to feed or or eat into... The fruits shall tell.

Here are some updates... been a lil cold in that room 63-69f with the tubs as opposed to my normal more around 70-73f temps. And, it's also still very dry, 20% or less. I think these cooler temps and dry air are contributing to how these are flushing this first time. I'm not worried though, these are gonna boom up more normally next flush I bet. There are still gonna be a good number of fruits to eat off this flush though.

They seem to be growing a lil smallish, and a lil thinish... not dense. The substrate is also a lil wet due to my efforts to keep it humid in there. This combined with the cool temps are not helping. I've taken some garbage bags and lined the tops with them loosely to help seal it up a lil better. Whatever happens, off we go, enjoy the pics. :)

(btw, that's just resin on my lighter... heh, and I dunno what that smudge is in the two pics, must be something on the side of the tub)

That's a big 10-4. I think that too. Besides the fact that the B+ tosses off huge fruits 2nd round, conditions should improve somewhat. I just do love them cool nice night temps though... not so good for the fruits ;) hah.

Gonna be picking some in a bit, will have more pics then.

The Substrate is definately a lil damp and the air is not.. well, wasn't. The plastic bags on the top edges have helped keep it more humid. Still somewhat cool, but still producing.

Some were picked today already. Very thinnish weak stems (not normal for my B+ grows) and the caps sorta were falling off and splitting a bit. I'm guessing due to the wetter sub. Again, not a problem, no need to mist it heavy between flushes this time. :) Still decent fruits though, and do they stink! WOOO :) hehe They also stained VERY blue where the caps were removed for printing.

These are only gonna get better.

wonder if that stink
might be a function of
bacteria growing in the shrooms
due to excess moisture content.

I don't normally like to let the spores explode all over like this, but they caught me by surprise. I woke up to find the fruits ready to be picked, IN A BIG WAY. ;) Take a look at these beautiful pictures. The fruits are somewhat weak/thin stemmed, but my god, there are a lot of em! hah It seems that my lil garbage bag rigging has helped to keep the humidity levels up even though it's still 20% or less RH here, and as a result, the fruits are loving it. Flush 2 gonna be nuts. :) hah



Here are some pictures from today. Enjoy.

Nah, it's the normal stink I associate with really nice potent cubbies (Yeah, I know, we already had a thread/debate about smell/potency last year... :) hehe)
