First Real Grow: B+ and TC Mycrotopia jars
Posted 09 June 2006 - 12:05 AM
knocked on 4-17 and off to a slow start due to low temps, jars finally colonized. they are mycrotopia jars colonized with b+ and treasure coast from sporeworks.
there were several other rye grain jars with other strains that were innoc. on the same date but all were lost to contams.
Finally he came up with a chamber that worked. a fishtank heater in a glass jar covered with foil, inside of a plastic tub along with several individual fruiting chambers, such as a slurpee cup or a plastic fruit bowl. All cakes were DEC.

He was so happy when he saw the first invitro pin.
Then when they started to grow he decided to leave more than half in glass.
this was the best part to see some thing so cool. and at room temp too! he didnt let them get to there full potential and harvested them. it seemed that one giant one would creep along the top or bottom and the rest were stunted. next time i guess i should loosen the lid. Also the cakes were not dunked for the first flush.

All the cakes are treasure coast, most of the invitro jars are B+. except the chicken container picture. the right side is b+ and the left is TC for a comparison.
Is FAE my problem?

all cakes were moved invitro and in the pics i noticed a dramatic growth spurt for the second flush.:dance:
He took 25 wet g's of aborts and smaller fruits and chopped them and soaked / dunked them in an airplane bottle of grey goose 80 proof. He was amazed at how blue the liquid turned. after many hours he re-bottled the blue juice. in this pic the goose which is usually clear, looks black! he can't wait to try it.
Also the last pic is pp5 plastic with bleach pastureized straw, with TC cakes broken and layered and they are starting to colonize.

thin long stems often means high CO2
so vent more often

The straw cake started pinning and growing before it fully colonized. What should he do, use as spawn or leave it be?:eusa_thin
he made a few cakes into experimental outdoor beds, and some cakes into casings in microwave food containers with past c-poo.
The other invitro jars all fruited well and he got a few bigguns.
the casings mycelium are catching on quick, and mostly everything except 2 invitro jars will be made into attempted bulk tubs or outdoor beds.:D
Thanks to Mycotopia for being the answer to all my questions:bow:

All that many new projects started, eh?
I think we've hooked another one...

:) thanks Buckaroo, yeah i think ive been hooked for a little while :)
these last few posts he will finish his growlog. the cakes had about 5 flushes in total at this point he made experimental casings and outdoor boxes.
the small microwave containers fruited only two large b+ fruits each. one had bright green trich contam, and i had to toss it.
also a seed germination tray was used for a treasure coast cake crumbled into oven-pasturized c-poo (agway brand) and peat, and cased with coir after recovering.
the plastic tub was tc in bleach pasterized straw with oven-past. poo with no casing. this fruited well.
some of the caps were left to open all the way sporulation was heavy and he finally got some good prints.

i have one question. in the pics you can see a wire basket with damp straw and crumbled cake misted daily. it always seems dry, should he have the straw log indoors?
so thats it. he hopes to learn more. last but not least thank you everyone at mycotopia, :bow: couldnt have done it without all your help and knowledge. you all have been great since day one.
